Joe Cortez To Referee Mayweather vs Ortiz Fight


Joe Cortez Referee Mayweather vs Ortiz Fight

Referee Joe Cortez will be the third man in the ring when Floyd Mayweather, Jr. takes on Victor Ortiz this September 17 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Ortiz will defend his WBC Welterweight Championship title against the same man who previously held it.

Coincidentally, Cortez was the referee when Mayweather defended it against Ricky Hatton in 2007. Hatton later pointed to Cortez as one of the factors why he lost because of Cortez constantly breaking up the action and giving Hatton very little time to work before separating the two fighters.

Cortez was also the referee when Mayweather won the only rematch of his career, a 12-round decision in a 2002 lightweight title defense against Jose Luis Castillo, from whom he won the title in a disputed decision earlier that year.

He, on the other hand have not worked on any of Ortiz’ previous fights.

Watch Mayweather vs Ortiz LIVE on pay-per-view presented by HBO Boxing on September 17, 2011 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA.
