The Mayors of Ventura and Riverside, California are putting up their fruits for the Victor Ortiz – Josesito Lopez fight, this Saturday at The Staples Center in Los Angeles.

Mike Tracy the Mayor of Ventura is betting Riverside Mayor Ron Loveridge a flat of strawberries that resident Victor Ortiz will beat Riversides Josesito Lopez for the WBC Welterweight Silver Belt Championship.

Ventura is a quiet coastal town of about 100,000 residents; Riverside, with a population of about 300,000, is located on the edge of the Mojave Desert. Coincidentally, both cities are roughly 60 miles from the downtown Los Angeles Staples Center-Ventura to the west, Riverside to the east.

Both fighters have heart and fight hard, which will make this fight, a well attended one at that. The Ortiz-Lopez 12-rounder will be televised on Showtime.
