It was week 6 for “Dancing with the Stars” when former WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz and his dance partner Lindsay Arnold were eliminated Tuesday night. “I don’t take nothing back. I made great friends and it was a heck of an experience. And hopefully these beautiful people will follow me to my next national championship,” said Ortiz.
Ortiz was one week short of “Latin Week”. In the beginning he was difficult with his partner being lazy saying it was too difficult.
There was a turn around because unlike some boxing trainers the professional dancers on “Dancing with the Stars” do not go soft on their celebrity partners. Ortiz has a winning smile and can be a charmer and did well to last until the 6th week.
There are still 7 contestants left. Boxing manager Tony Dovolani was eliminated earlier in the beginning of 2013.
