In one of the most despicable acts of unsportsmanlike conduct in boxing, Floyd Mayweather Jr. sucker punches and knocks out Victor Ortiz after Ortiz apologized for an intentional headbutt earlier in the 4th round and then goes on to insult Larry Merchant in the post fight interview for no reason.
I’d like to see the diehard Floyd Mayweather fans try to defend this despicable act. I guess Mayweather wanted a KO so badly he took it anyway he could get it even if it meant blindsiding his opponent and hitting him while his face was turned.
The Ortiz camp was worried that Floyd Mayweather would use dirty tactics and they focused on the elbows that Mayweather usually throws, but this time it was the sucker punching off a break while the referee Joe Cortez was looking at the time keeper.
This was like something out of a WWE Wrestlemania event. What’s next? Floyd has someone slide metal chair in the ring in his next fight and use it on his opponent while the ref is talking to the ringside officials.
To make matters even worse, Floyd apologists said his disrespectful attack on his father during the 24/7 Mayweather-Ortiz series was all scripted, and tonight Floyd attacked and nearly came to blows with Larry Merchant a man old enough to be his grandfather, I bet they will blame the old man for instigating it because he was just doing his job and probably going to ask him about Manny Pacquiao next. Floyd keeps showing his true colors and the people who keep defending him are just as bad. Sure he has skills and he was putting on an awesome display of boxing against Ortiz, but he ruined it by doing something a street thug would do.
We all know the fight the world wants to see, and that’s Floyd vs. Manny Pacquiao, the peoples champion. What a contrast that would be Floyd Mayweather the ultimate bad guy versus Manny Pacquiao the classiest superstar in sports.
But we all know that fight won’t happen because Floyd is going to go on vacation again until 2013 when Manny Pacquiao retires and runs for Governor in the Philippines.
From what I seen from Floyd, he doesn’t want to fight Manny Pacquiao in his prime, he would rather sucker punch someone, fight women, and old men. But don’t ever mention the name Manny Pacquiao again or else he will attack you regardless if you are old or female, I wouldn’t be surprised if he yells at a handicap person next if they ask him “When are you going to fight Pacquiao?”
