LONDON: Victor Ortiz is out to prove that Floyd Mayweather's boxing career is over when they meet in Las Vegas on September 17. Ortiz, 24, defends his WBC title against fellow American Mayweather, a five-weight world champion who is unbeaten in 41 fights. "He's way overdue a defeat," said Ortiz, who claimed the WBC belt with a points defeat of Andre Berto in April. "Floyd who? On 17 September, one man's career ends and another man's career begins. He's done." Despite Ortiz's bold pronouncements, Mayweather will be a heavy favourite going into the fight.
