Fight Synopsis:

In August 11, 2007, Z Gorres did what was expected of him by outclassing a somewhat shopworn Eric Ortiz in Arco Arena, Sacramento, California, United States. Watch how he redeemed himself with his best punches and also see for yourself in a video here how he failed to budge the Mexican boxer. The video shows the bout was stopped due to Ortiz being cut.

Gorres is not a particularly hard hitter still, as the video here shows he has the looks and styles of someone who has been boxing at 115 pounds for more than four years really. It took long enough for Gorres to wear out his opponent as the fight lasted until the eight round of the supposed to be 12 round duel.

See in the video of the eight round how Z Gorres goes for a kill and Ortiz’ downfall was very much anticipated. Z’s endurance was unbelievable as he triggered jabs to Ortiz’s body. There was no backing out for the Filipino who displayed intense footwork and concentration as his keys to succeed in this fight.

It was only forty-seven minutes before the round eight was finished when Gorres pushed Ortiz to the ropes and creating an injury in his enemy’s head. The referee declared the fight over, making the Philippines champion of the World Cup against the Mexicans.
