Humboldt Park Very Own Dimar Ortuz



Dimar Ortuz is a proud product of Humboldt Park, today a cruise-weight undefeated 7-0 boxer. He carries this label of origin with pride, as part of his promotional presentation, as we can all see on the corner of Division and California. Dimar attended briefly the Consuelo Lee Corretjer Daycare Center, partook in the summer programs sponsored by the Puerto Rican Cultural Center as a young boy, and finally graduated from Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos High School in 1999. But he is not only excellent in his sport and division, but his life is a testament of human will and power. Dimar has had every reason to not stand where he is at today, but at 31, an age when so many people feel it is not possible to set new goals and ambitions in life, he broke all of the stereotypes of age and life challenges to be 7-0 at 5 knockouts. Our undefeated Dimar, totally a homegrown champ, is a great example of the young people that are produced in Humboldt Park. On behalf of the Puerto Rican Cultural Center and Dr. Pedro Albizu Campos High School, we are extraordinarily proud of our homegrown champion as a child of our own, and we know that his beloved mother Elsa Delgado is equally proud. Congratulations, Dimar Ortuz!
