Vergil Ortiz Knocks Out Antonio Orozco

Vergil Ortiz Jr. produced a spectacular performance on Saturday night, dropping Antonio Orozco, the biggest opponent he has faced three times before stopping him in the sixth round at The Theatre at Grand Prairie in Grand Prairie, Texas.

Ortiz (14-0, 14 KOs) has definitely moved beyond the "prospect" status, as Orozco was regarded as one of the Contenders in the Welterweight division and was never knocked out before losing to Ortiz. 

Ortiz wasn't happy with his performance and expressed his unhappiness during the post fight interview and maintained that, he is still in the learning process. 
“I’m gonna be honest, I don’t like the way I did in the fight,” Ortiz told DAZN’s Claudia Trejos during his post-fight interview. “I don’t even know how many rounds we went. That’s how into the fight I was. But I wanna say like the first three, four rounds, I could’ve done a bit better. I definitely got a long way [to go] as a boxer to reach that world champion status. But we’re gonna make those improvements. We’re gonna learn from this fight.”
