The sixth round of last year's fight between Victor Ortiz and Andre Berto was really great. Here's a Fight Camp 360° bonus clip of the two fighters analyzing and reliving the great round. Hold on to your seats.
GUS JOHNSON DIDN'T CALL THIS FIGHT.
Ortiz: "The infamous round six."
in·fa·mous / ˈinfəməs /
Well known for some bad quality or deed.
Wicked; abominable: "infamous misconduct".
Well this is off to a great start.
Ortiz: "The fight by this point has been a brutal one. Huhuhuh. Back and forth. This is what boxing is famous for. These kinds of fights. I'll be honest, it excited me seeing this fight again.
Berto: "Mm. Right over the straight left. Bap. Right over the top of the straight left. Bap. There it is again. Right over the top of that straight left. Thought I killed him."
Tony Morgan: "Boom. Monstrous right hand Berto hit him with."
Berto: "He got back up. I couldn't believe he got up."
Ortiz: "Boom. Connects nice. Connects, ooh, he connected me really nice right there. Huhuhuh! That was really nice. I'm sure anybody else he probably woulda put their lights out."
Morgan: "Very surprised Victor jumped right back up after that. After seeing Victor's history, very surprised."
Ortiz: "Everybody thought this fight was gonna end right here. They said it was, uh, it was a repeat of Maidana-Ortiz."
Danny Garcia: "The people was remembering about the last fight when he fought Maidana, it's what everybody said that Victor didn't have a heart. He does have a heart. Bigger than Berto."
Things we've learned so far:
- Boxing is famous for good fights.
- Also, bap.
- Maidana-Ortiz was the last fight Ortiz had had before Berto.*
* No. Ortiz had actually fought five times between Maidana and Berto, four of which were coddling gimme fights.
Ortiz: "Here we go, buddy. I'm done running, alright?"
Berto: "He's hurt. Bum. Referee looking to stop it at any time. Here he comes. When he comes, he comes like a bull. Psssh. That looks ridiculous.
Ortiz: "Woooo timbeeeer."
This was a convincing moment of charisma. I really felt it when he said "timbeeer."
Berto: "Down I go. I'm smiling because I couldn't believe it. I'm looking at my corner smiling like, 'This is crazy.'"
Tony Morgan: "Victor touches him with -- I don't even know what it is. I call it a bitchsmack, and Berto falls."
Ortiz: "Then it goes hook, boom! I floor him. I looked at him and I just said, 'Woo, that looks like it hurt.'"
Berto: "Looked like he just slapped me. Looked like he just slapped me. I wasn't really hurt at all. I'm just sittin' there lookin' like, did my legs just really just give out on me, like, really? Um ... it's crazy."
I have to be fair here. Berto is just about as peculiar as Ortiz. He just says less silly things, less often.
That said, this was pretty cool. It's goofy because it involves Ortiz and Berto, but getting to know Tony Morgan better could be a great result of FC360°.
