Oscar de la Hoya advises Victor Ortiz to retire

Oscar de la Hoya, the legendary former boxer and the current president of Golden Boy Promotions has advised Victor Ortiz to hang up his boxing gloves and move on to something else after he suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of Luis Collazo.

Ortiz who turned 27 the night of his defeat to the light hitting fighter could well be released from his contract with Golden Boy Promotions especially with de la Hoya at the helm of its affairs. However, he might have to do some convincing especially with Richard Schaefer, the CEO of Golden Boy who might want to keep hold of the boxer in order to mix and match a fight with others in the stable including the likes of Robert Guerrero, Danny Garcia, Devon Alexander as well as Lamont Peterson.

Obviously, Ortiz wouldn’t be a good choice for any top class opponent for the time being but if Schaefer manages to keep hold of him, he can put him in fights against other in his own category just the way Amir Khan got his career back on track as he looks to rebuild his fan following once again.

Ortiz needs at least five or six more fights against opponents that might be considered as winnable for him in order to pit him later on against opponents ranked higher than him or in championship matches for the titles in the 147 or 154 lbs weight categories.

Ortiz took nineteen months off from the game before returning against Collazo and he should have taken things a lot slower and settled into his position before going for the kill but he failed to do that and suffered a humiliating defeat at his hands.

But what the future now holds for him is something that is still to be decided.

Joe Calzaghe tells Froch to give rematch to Groves

Legendary Welsh boxer and former Super Middleweight Championship holder Joe Calzaghe has warned double world champion Carl Froch that he faces a serious threat to his long standing legacy if he fails offer George Groves a rematch after his controversial win over the young Englishman in a title fight last month at Sheffield.

According to Calzaghe, he felt that the 25 year old was dominating the world champion before the referee brought the match to an abrupt end in the middle of the ninth round, a time when the youngster had sagged a bit under the heavy punches of the Nottingham based Froch.

Froch has continued to avoid talk of a rematch against Groves, insisting that the referee intervened at absolutely the perfect moment in the match and mentioned that he was much more interested in a rematch against the number one fighter in the 12 stone categories Andre Ward.

Joe Calzaghe, who managed to avoid a number of call outs by the Englishman as he edged closer to bringing an unbeaten career to a close in 2008 mentioned that Froch was extremely lucky to have the result go his way before adding that he thinks the right thing for Froch would be to offer the youngster a rematch.

But Froch, who was making an appearance at a BBC function on Sunday, stated that everyone saw what was going to happen had the match continued and insisted that he has nothing more to prove in a rematch.

Froch went on to sidestep the comments made by Joe Calzaghe and added that he will sit down with his manager Eddie Hearn and decide his next fight. He stated that he has a maximum of three fights left in him and is interested in a rematch against the American hard hitter Andre Ward.
