Victor Ortiz, the American boxer who is just trying to recuperate from the downhill slide in his career is ready for his next match. His next fight is now set for 30th April and it is going to be a rematch of the 2011 fight of the year with his favorite rival, Andre Berto.
Berto happens to be in a far better place than Victor at the moment and a win for Andre could even mean a shot at the WBC welterweight title. Current Champion, Danny Garcia will also be taking a close look at the fight as the result will probably tell him who his next opponent is going to be.
Viktor who is considered an average boxer currently in his division was once the title holder and still has pretty impressive stats to show for that.
