“It feels so good to win this year because Orlando really supported me, more than I ever could have imagined,” Montalvo said in a press release. “They were screaming for me like crazy, and that got me hyped. I gave it all I had, and it means so much to me that I won here.”
The event was co-hosted by MTV's Sway and Phife Dawg from Tribe Called Quest and featured an appearance by hip-hop legend Grandmaster Flash.
Montalvo will now head to the World Final in Rome on November 14, where he will battle for the title of the world's best b-boy.
