Victor Ortiz has traded in is boxing shorts for a turquoise shirt and slacks in his first official image for the upcoming season of Dancing with the Stars.
The 26-year-old Mexican American former WBC Welterweight Champion, who was named to the all-star cast of ABC’s celebrity ballroom dancing competition late last month, and his dancing pro Lindsay Arnold don coordinating outfits in the official image released by the network.
“He’s good on his feet… He’s not horrible, he’s got great footwork,” first-time pro Arnold told Access Hollywood about Ortiz.
Ortiz, who says his dance experience amounts to only “three seconds,” says his competitors better look out.
“I want to win it actually. I want to win this thing… my other competitive side of me is now kicking in,” said Ortiz, who looks oh-so-dapper in his tuxedo and bow tie in the official solo image.
The new season of Dancing with the Stars will premiere on Monday, March 18 at 8:00pm ET.
