p***y. I hope he goes to jail for 30 years.
From what I was told a while ago, this fight was to set up a potential match up with Manny after his fight with Marquez. Not to mention Ortiz was rumored to be Manny's next fight, but now will be even more of a killer build-up to an epic boxing bout. The lifting of the Golden Boy lawsuit really helped set this up as well, though Manny will prolly not drop the PBF lawsuit until negotiations open for their fight to build up intrigue.
I have to give a HUGE set of props for PBF for setting this up. He's fighting a hot up and coming fighter whose style is very similar to Manny's (not as fast but definitely has power and aggression) and will be a great fight for PBF to build on.
I feel he set up this fight to not only build up his rep again, but to start making some money. I'm willing to bet that the Ortiz/PBF bout will make more money than Pac/Marquez III and will put PBF back into the Top 2 P4P discussion.
Whoever wins should get a fight with Manny, either the epic PBF/Manny bout we've all wanted for 4 years, or we get next great thing in Ortiz who was the slayer of PBF versus the P4P champion in Manny. Either way, they'll both be amazing fights and what the people want
