Wakeup Call: Victor Ortiz has added a bit of inspiration to his workouts

Aug 31, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT


Larry Brown Sports took a visit to Knuckleheadz Gym in Ventura, Calif., on Tuesday to observe a Victor Ortiz workout as he prepares for his fight with Floyd Mayweather on Sept. 17. And guess what he found attached to Ortiz’s punching bag? Nothing is more inspirational than punching Money holding a title belt on a daily basis. That must be why Ortiz is in the greatest shape of his life, according to observers.

Of course, cardboard Mayweather doesn’t punch back, or dance around to avoid contact. He’s also mercifully quiet. Best part:

Ortiz was his usual affable self, spending time with children from the Big Brothers and Big Sisters program prior to his media workout. He cracked jokes, asked them personal questions, and related to them on an individual level. To give you a flavor of their conversation, when Ortiz asked what they wanted to do when they get older, one answered “Go to a strip club!”

    Wish Floyd would get an infected toe.
