Mexican Boxer Victor Ortiz Joins ‘Dancing With The Stars' (VIDEO)

By Michael Lopez


He may not have been able to take down Floyd Mayweather, but perhaps Victor Ortiz score a victory against Wynonna Judd. Dancing With The Stars fans will soon find out when the Mexican-American boxer laces up his tap shoes and hits the floor.

Ortiz is one of 12 new contestants on the reality dance series and seems to be very eager to show his stuff. He’s also reached out to the Hispanic community for a little extra encouragement.

“Everyone watch Dancing With The Stars this season,” he wrote on his Twitter account. “@VICIOUSortiz will be there repping #BoxingHeads and Latinos, so support and tune in.”

Outside of Wynonna, Victor will be hot-footing it against celebs like Andy Dick, D.L. Hughley and Olympian Aly Raisman. Let’s hope he gets the chance to earn that mirror ball trophy (or at least a book deal) when it’s all said and done.
