Victor Ortiz was in the fight of his life, but the dance floor not the boxing ring is what provided the challenge. Victor Ortiz and his partner, Lindsay Arnold, were voted off on Tuesday night. Ortiz was grateful for his fans keeping him on for many weeks and thankful that he has made life-time friendships with the “Dancing With the Stars” celebrities and dancers.

Ortiz recently admitted to AfterBuzz TV, “The After-Show Network,” just how athletically challenging DWTS really is: “That's actually a harder fight than a boxing match,” he said, adding, “There's no joke there. That's tough.”

Here’s what “Dancing With the Stars” has to say about the former Welterweight Boxing Champion: “Victor Ortiz is a living, breathing example of the American dream. From a broken home in a small town in Kansas to the bright lights of the boxing ring, Ortiz has used every obstacle he has encountered along his journey to fuel his strength and attain his dreams.”

Speaking of his home state of Kansas, Ortiz’s demeanor lit up recently when someone gave him a beautiful bouquet featuring school colors for the University of Kansas Jayhawks. "These Fiesta Roses are the sickest flowers I've ever seen,” Ortiz said, smiling. “KU Colors baby! Rock Chalk!"
