Victor Ortiz tells the LA Times that he really wants make Lindsay proud and improve this coming week. He only has one thing on his mind and that is ….”Victory”!
Q. “Vicious” showed up in the rehearsal studio for a moment, but Lindsay stood her ground. Would she be your toughest opponent?
Lindsay is amazing, and it’s hard to think of what she would be like as an opponent. We work together so I could never see her that way objectively speaking. She’s my partner, my coach, my everything right now … she’s a great teacher. We all go through bursts of emotions in stressful situations that you look back and laugh at — that was me frustrated with myself, I really want to make Lindsay proud, especially. This week there is one thing on my mind: victory.
Q. You’re used to competing against someone in the ring, now you are competing with someone (Lindsay) on the dance floor. What kind of mental adjustment does that take?
She’s my “trainer.” We are on the same team, and I have a huge amount of respect for her. The mental adjustment is remembering all the steps and the music counts, learning so much at such a fast pace. But I’m grateful to be here and have the challenge, because it’s definitely challenging!
I think it’s really key he (and D.L.!) make a really strong showing this week or he could be in trouble. We will see? More at the LA Times including some promo for his new cologne.
