On Saturday night, top junior welterweight prospect Victor Ortiz fights for his first world title against Marcos Rene Maidana.

Going by the numbers, this fight won't go the distance as both men as fierce punchers — Ortiz is 24-1-1 with 19 KOs and Maidana is 25-1 with 24 KOs.

Ortiz, who brings a 17-fight win streak into the WBA title bout (HBO, 10 p.m. ET.), recently shared his thoughts with FOXSports.com.
