I felt a little bad for Victor Ortiz, watching the end of his fight against Josesito Lopez.
Here on my phone was the picture of a man bewildered, stung, hurt (literally) shocked. He’d just had his jaw broken by a guy you can’t help but be happy for, Lopez.
I cautioned that this could happen in a post last week leading up to the fight. I pointed out that Lopez had nothing to lose and so much to gain, so much motivation to win Saturday’s fight against Ortiz at the Staples Center in L.A.
Lopez was the patsy, the fall guy not given a chance in you-know-where to win the fight. He was losing on the scorecards when he uncorked a punch that made Ortiz open his mouth, it landed with so much authority. And Lopez was still losing when the unbelievable happened.
