Huge boxing drama over the weekend as undefeated Floyd Mayweather
stole claimed the WBC welterweight title by knocking out Victor Ortiz with what many are describing as a cheap shot while Ortiz was trying to apologize with his guard down.
Then in the post-fight interview Mayweather let rip at 80 year old veteran announcer Larry Merchant saying “HBO needs to fire you. You know sh*t about boxing. You aint sh*t. You not sh*t.“
Here’s the video of Floyd being a dick. Twice.
Ok so i watched it several times and the headbutt from Ortiz was definately deliberate. The ref says “let’s go” so technically i’m taking that as the fight is back on.
I get the whole ‘protect yourself at all times’ rule of boxing, but damn that’s some unsportsman like sh*t.
And how’s his rant in the post-fight interview? Larry Merchant may be an annoying coffin dodger, but does he deserve to be disrespected like that? Props to him though for saying “I wish I was 50 years younger and I’d kick your ass“.
