Son of Liberty
I could not agree more, I love those attributes also. Growing up my dad and I watched a lot of boxing on the Mexican TV stations, and did a little boxing myself when I was a kid. Mexican fighters pride themselves in getting up after being knocked down. I'm not going to lie, being from Mexican immigrants I was really pulling for Ortiz, and I loved it when he bounced back after being knocked down twice.It was very impressive that Ortiz bounced back from two knock-downs to defeat the favored Berto. Shows heart and determination. I like those attributes in a boxer. It is what allows fighters to defeat others who are better and more skilled than them.
And Ortiz better bring a whole truckload of heart and determination because he will need it. Ortiz needs to be patient and not get frustrated and do something careless because Mayweather will make you pay ten-fold for your mistakes.
But you're right, he's going to have to bring A LOT of that against Mayweather. As a long time boxing fan I really respect Floyd, I love his style and I love how he makes you pay for your mistakes. I have to hand it to him, like he says, they've brought 41 in front of me, and 41 have come up short.
