According to news, Cortez was the same man who worked on Floyd Mayweather Jr. 2007 bout versus Ricky Hatton. Hatton has some problem fighting toe to toe because of Joe's way of breaking up fighters immediately after seeing them so close. The recent fight where Joe Cortez was the referee on Khan vs Maidana rumble wherein the same breaking up has lead Maidana's defeat.

This is a for sure bad thing to Victor Ortiz. He can't do some work on the inside because of the immediate reaction of the third man in action. Only jabs can't surprise the undefeated six-time world champion. What would Ortiz and his trainer do on their game plan?
