Pete was a very tall, tough and talented welterweight that just came along at the wrong time in a brutal era and suffered some horrific knockouts at the hands of Pipino Cuevas and his amateur nemesis, Sugar Ray Leonard.
He was the Number One contender for awhile and he earned that the hard way going through real tough and talented guys like Randy Shields and Gene Wells, and was the National AAU Champion, beating Carlos Palomino in the finals.
Leonard later said that he would not have unloaded on Pete that hard as he and Ranzany were friends but Pete just kept coming back at him hard and he had to close the show.
Ranzany would have taken Ortiz apart in a good action fight.
leanard ko1 ortiz a bum
greatest figther of all time nobody can beat him not even tyson not even ali no one
I wonder how Ray would overcome Ortiz' functional weight advantage.
