You can see why no other heavyweight wants to fight Ortiz. He’s very crafty in the ring and he moves strategically. I had to play around with him and measure him in certain places. I had to go back and go forward. My intellect is very high although I don’t get credit for it. I finally found my measurement and I took the shot and I hurt him.

Ortiz is one of the best in the world and that’s why I gave him this opportunity.

The Cuban native boxer, Ortiz said:

This is boxing. I told everybody that it would either be him or me and it wasn’t going to go 12 rounds. I was trying to get up by [the referee’s] count was a little bit quicker than I thought.
