Yeah it would definitely be a great scrap. Hopefully Ortiz will get a few more Mexican stripes after the attention he gets from 24/7 and the Mayweather bout (win or lose), then he could probably fight for his right to be a true Mexican against Canelo, lol. Neither of the two strike me as true Mexicans to be honest, and I love to watch Mexicans fight...its always a tooth-to-nail slugfest. The Ortiz/Alvarez bout should be deemed, "Showdown for Mexican Supremacy" to see who takes the majority/all of the Mexican fan base to the next level in PPVs. It should be held at the Cowboys Stadium...talkin' about 100k seats being sold tha freak out in as heartbeat.
Ortiz is American, born here raised here by Americans. Alvarez is a Mexican, maybe Angulo vs Alvarez would be a good fight for that title lol. Mexicans also love JCC so i guess you could throw him in their as well, i think he's garbage tho.
Ortiz should get good exposure(24/7) win or lose and i think he makes for good fights in the future, he'll never be a Mayweather or Pac but i think he could be a more technical version of Vargas. I'd love to see him in there w/ Khan, Angulo, Alvarez, and at some point Kirkland. They are all GBP and i think they all make for good fights, there are 5 or 6 fights that could be recycled between those fighters. 147 and 154 are going through a rejuvenation period and there are a lot of interesting fights to be made there, HBO needs to look at making a tourney
