Biography

A respected 140-pound contender, Roberto “Massa” Ortiz hopes to secure a world title shot in 2016 and bring another championship belt to his native Mexico. A professional since 2007, Ortiz is a decorated competitor already, having won the WBA Fedecaribe and WBA Fedecentro belts before picking up the WBC Silver championship at 140 pounds with a fourth-round stoppage of 23-0 Antonio Lozada Jr. in June of 2011. After that impressive victory, Ortiz successfully defended his belt a remarkable nine times, before a 2014 loss to Lucas Matthysse, the only defeat on his stellar record. Ortiz even added the WBC Silver welterweight title to his collection in February of 2013 with a technical decision win over Fidel Monterrosa Munoz. Now back at junior welterweight, Ortiz’s next goal is a world title, and after winning back-to-back bouts over Juan Jesus Rivera and Nestor Fernando Garcia since the loss to Matthysse, he will have certainly earned his crack at the crown should he keep this winning streak going.
