Sadly however in this sport being nice isn't always the best thing and of course the most embarrassing moment in Ortiz's career was actually when he was being too nice and trying to cuddle Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Well I said that was most embarrassing thing in Ortiz's career though we do have a few contenders. His losses to Josesito Lopez and Marcos Maidana were certainly not high points, neither was his now infamous "I'm a tree" statement. Though lets be fair none of those are as bad as stopped whilst trying to give a guy a cuddle.
What may be worse however is having your own skin product as Victor advertises in the video below in what could only be described as genuinely homoerotic. If you'd like to buy some "Victor Ortiz Anti-Aging" products then check out the full range here.
