Mayweather vs. Ortiz is on! - Breaking News!!!
By Vitali Shaposhnikov: It's official, Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Victor Ortiz is on! No not because I said it, or because a boxing news website generated the buzz, but because Mayweather Jr. himself twittered it a few minutes ago (http://twitter.com/#!/floydmayweather).

While this fight has been talked about and anticipated for some time now, most thought it was only rumors. Finally, Mayweather Jr. is coming back to prove that he is still a force to be reckoned with. Is this his way of winking at a possible Manny Pacquiao bout sometime next year?
Victor Ortiz, the WBC welterweight champion, is not someone that Floyd should be taking lightly. For Ortiz this fight is crucial, and winning it would be astronomical. Dealing with Floyd will be a whole new experience for Ortiz, thus he should be prepared for a very different, stylistically challenging fight.
