Raekwon & Ghostface's 'Only Built 4 Cuban Linx' Doc: 'Purple Tape Files' | Sundance 2015 - Interview

“It’s all a big joke,” Ortiz mumbled. “It’s nothing.”
Perhaps. This is the biggest stage Ortiz has been on and may ever be on. However, the 24-year-old with the amazing life story remained unruffled, and calmly told Mayweather, smiling, “you’re going down, you’re going down.”
Mayweather, who is guaranteed $25 million for the fight, is a veteran of the big Las Vegas boxing stage and knows how to incite the crowd. And this crowd estimated at 4,000 was solidly in Ortiz’s corner, including hundreds of fans who came in from the Garden City, Kan., area, where Ortiz — who is guaranteed by far his biggest payday at $2.5 million — grew up, and where his parents abandoned young Ortiz and his siblings.
