Ortiz started patiently inside a defensive shell, bouncing on his toes and looking for an opening. He found it quick as a hard right jab-left hand combo put Resto on his back. Ortiz was patient in the follow up and quickly trapped Resto on the ropes. Another brutal one-two put Resto down again and he rose quickly but a little shakier this time. Ortiz again stayed in the pocket, relaxed and waiting for his opening.

In the second round, Ortiz attacked again and put Resto on the ropes again. A series of hard rights and lefts inside put Resto down again for good as the referee waved it off at 1:38.

“I prepared for everything with [Resto],” Ortiz said afterward. “We watched a lot of tape and I used some of that in the fight.”

With the win, Ortiz feels he is ready. “I feel I am up there. I have some things I have to work on but as far [fighting at the top level or a title fight] I’ll just wait and see.”

With the win, Ortiz moves to 23-1-1 with 18 KOs. Resto moves to 22-3 with 13 KOs.
