Boxer Victor Ortiz, 26, was knocked out by Floyd Mayweather in 2011, but he may be able to get revenge on the dance floor. Sources told the New York Daily News that Victor has signed on for Dancing With the Stars Season 16, aka the spring 2013 season, which premieres March 18 on ABC.

Floyd Mayweather was eliminated fourth on DWTS Season 5, so if Victor does dance and gets past that point, he'll score a minor victory. But male boxers don't tend to do too well on the show. Evander Holyfield was the second celeb eliminated on Season 1. Sugar Ray Leonard was eliminated third on Season 12. However, Laila Ali took third on Season 4.

Maybe Victor can break the male boxer streak, if this casting spoiler pans out. Do you hope it’s true?
