Victor Ortiz was born on 31st January, 1987 in the Garden City. His parents left him and his siblings at a very early age and that is when Ortiz started to take up boxing. He then went on to take part and come out on top at the Golden Gloves Championship. He decided to take up the sport seriously when he saw his pictures in the papers the next day. By the time he was thirteen, Victor Ortiz was reunited with his sister who became his legal guardian as well. Having some stability in life for a change helped his boxing career and his talents started to show for everyone to see. He re-located to Denver with his sister and younger brother where he started to train at Red Shield Community Center set up by the Salvation Army. There he met former boxer Ron Lyle who trained him and guided him to come out on top at a Junior Olympics competition in the 132 pound category. Victor Ortiz then moved to California to train with Roberto Garcia who had noticed him after his Junior Olympics triumph.
At the age of seventeen, Victor Ortiz went to audition for the 2004 Olympics to represent his country, where he reached the final round but that was as good as it got and he bowed out with his head held high. Later that year he turned professional to slug it out against Raul Montes in his debut fight and came out on top as early as the first round. Another six straight wins followed before he was controversially disqualified in his eighth fight against Corey Alarcon for landing an illegal blow. The loss did not deter Victor Ortiz and he started all over again to live up to his moniker Vicious. The next two years were immensely successful as Ortiz kept on piling up wins to climb up the ladder. By the time 2007 came around, he was ready to step up and face the more established names in the 140 pound class and he proved that by beating Emmanuel Clottey and the ex-world champion Carlos Maussa. If anyone had any doubts about Victor those were dispelled for sure with these two wins.
The next year started from where the previous had ended when he beat Dairo Esalas and Roberto Arrieta. His move to championship contender status was confirmed when he defeated Jeffrey Resto and Mike Arnaoutis. It was a very impressive rise by Victor Ortiz as he had now well and truly arrived on the biggest stage. An interim WBA junior welterweight bout against Marcos Maidana came but that was one step too far for Victor as he lost the slugfest in the sixth round. Ortiz went back to the drawing board once again and got to work on becoming a better fighter. He returned with a bang with victories over Hector Alatorre and Antonio Diaz. Two former world champions, Nate Campbell and Vivian Harris, were knocked out and a draw against Lamont Peterson earned Victor Ortiz a fight against Andre Berto for the WBC world title. On 16th April, 2011 in one of the most vicious fights of the year, Ortiz finally came out on top in the 12th round to become the new WBC welterweight world champion. His title reign however ended on 17th September, 2011 in a controversial fight against the legendary Floyd Mayweather.
