Ortiz scored a first-round KO.

“I’m so happy with this knock out, because I feel that it was well deserved,” said Ortiz.

“He was a tough fighter, and even though his record wasn’t spotless, he was never stopped before,” said Rocha.

“I was expecting a rough road, and I am happy with the two times I made him hit the floor. I’m a tough welterweight, and I’m only 19 so I have a lot to learn.”
