Victor Ortiz is an American professional boxer and the former WBC welterweight champion who has a net worth of $7 million. Victor Ortiz earned his net worth as a professional boxer. He was introduced to boxing by his father at the age of seven. At the age of 12 he worked in the cornfields of Kansas to make ends meet. By 13, he was in foster care without his siblings. It took five years for him to be reunited with his older sister, who took custody of Victor. During those tumultuous times, Ortiz turned to boxing for salvation and made a name for himself in the amateur world, eventually making it to the 2004 Olympic trials. He reeled off six wins before he suffered the first lost of his pro career on June 3, 2005 when he was disqualified in the first round of his fight against Corey Alarcon for what was controversially ruled an illegal punch. He lived up to his nickname "vicious" in the ring over the next two years as he piled up win after win. By 2007, he was ready to make his move on the big guns at 140 pounds. Victor had a dominating 10th round technical knockout win over Emmanual Clottey. On September 13, 2008, he fought his first bout scheduled for twelve rounds, against Roberto David Arrieta of Argentina. On March 7, 2009, he fought his first bout televised on HBO World Championship Boxing against Mike Arnaoutis of Greece. On September 18, 2010 he faced former WBA light welterweight champion Vivian Harris on the Shane Mosley vs. Sergio Mora undercard. Victor fought Andre Berto for the WBC welterweight title on April 16, 2011 at the Foxwoods Resort Casino, Mashantucket. He won the fight by unanimous decision over Berto.
