Joel Julio, coming off a one-sided decision Friday over Anges Adjaho in his return to the welterweight division, has set his sights on titleholder Victor Ortiz.
"I feel good at this weight. I feel strong," Julio told boxingscene.com. "I want to have at least two more fights, and then I want the fight with Victor Ortiz."
Julio suffered three of his four losses at junior middleweight or higher.
Ortiz galvanized his own career in April with a brilliant 12-round beat down of previously unbeaten Andre Berto to win his belt.
