Video: Floyd Mayweather’s Contentious Post-Fight Interview With Larry Merchant


Shortly after knocking out Victor Ortiz in bizarre fashion, Floyd Mayweather took part in the customary post-fight interview. He spent that interview yelling at an 80-year-old man. The 80-year-old man in question: HBO’s Larry Merchant, who according to Mayweather is unfair to Mayweather, and also “[doesn't] know shit about boxing.” Merchant responded by telling Mayweather he would kick his ass if he were 50 years younger. Though Merchant himself realized this scenario probably still would have been unlikely, he became many boxing fans’ favorite person for saying it (example: Merchant’s Wikipedia page now lists two of his occupations as “Professional Bad Ass” and “BAMF,” which we doubt was the case before this interview). You can see it above. Even by boxing standards, this was ridiculous.


  • chris2011

    Floyd Mayweather is a piece of shit and pitty excuse for a boxer.  I hope you never make it into the Hall of Fame! Ortiz is the first person that could knock you out and you took a cheap shot! 
    Then you thank God are you kidding me God wants nothing to do with you. You should be asking him for forgiveness not thanking him believe me he does want to be thanked by you.  
    I hope Ortiz fights you again and beats your ass and Manny for sure would beat the living daylights out of you hence why you won’t fight him. 

  • EDDY

    TO THE DIPSTICK ABOVE YOU OBVIOUSLY MISSED THE INTENTIONAL HEADBUTT BEFOREHAND! LIKE MAYWEATHER SAID AND ANY FIGHTER FAN WILL TELL YOU THAT WHEN YOU ARE IN THE RING YOU HAVE GOT TO PROTECT YOURSELF AT ALL TIMES!! LOL

  • Clintfacey

    To chris2011
    Justice was served. The mayweather school of boxing. Lesson 42 – Ortiz

  • K-Tee

    shut yo azz up manny a bum…so is ortiz…and larry merchant punk azz

  • Diverserx16

    cheap shots by both,the fight needs to be disqualified and both fighters need to be fined!!

  • TeamMayweather

    What do you have to say about Ortiz headbuttin Mayweather? Ortiz was dirty and he got his ass knocked out.

  • Wizard

    Please, Ortiz was trying to headbutt him all night!!  Protect yourself at all times is the golden rule in boxing, my 7 yr old knows that.  Besides, Mayweather was whippping his ass all night.  It just amazes me how everyone is overlooking Ortiz blatant headbutt and focusing on a LEGAL KO.

  • Wlcoro

    Ortiz got deducted a point for what he did, but floyd should had been disqualified… He a scare fighter… He will never fight manny…

  • Test123

    Respectfully sir God Loves and Forgives all so saying that God wants nothing to do with him is incorrect.  Secondly Manny would probably beat him because he is a blood doper.  Step your game up C.

  • Mrteddybearz

    ay yo chris2011 all i gotta say to you is “if you make a mistake you got’s to pay” a wise champ once said that hah!!!!!!! floyd getting accused of cheating but the other side ended up being the cheaters and floyd gave a fair blow and yet you still hate the man hahahaha wow ur a pitty excuse of life bro lol

  • Wlcoro

    No real boxer will be pleased with a victory like that… He is not a man… If u tink he is ur no one also…

  • Jaggowinski

    learn to speak and type jive ass soul brother

  • James

    Eddy your retarded go fall in a puddle of aids u mutt

  • Guest

    Before you call someone else out on their grammar, maybe you should check your own…”who according to Mayweather it unfair to Mayweather,”…and not that I am a journalist, but it seems awfully funny that someone who writes for a living would make fun of someone about their grammar right after they make a grammatical error on their own accord…hopefully you do not work for Yahoo directly.

  • Jesse

    wizard i hope your son doesnt grow up to be as fuckin stupid as your dumbass u moron legal fight my ass the ref wasnt looking.

  • itz me

    first ortiz head butted the man in the mouth and if you know anything bout boxing you always keep your guards up know matter whats going on but he could’ve waited but shit happens so how bout you train really hard and go kick mayweather ass for us lol

  • Sephia_lou

    because he’s afraid pacquaio will knock him out and mar his perfect record.  he’s afraid of pacquiao, always have been, always will be

  • Rayjones6116

    Floyd did nothing wrong. How many times have you hear over the
    years ” protect your self at ALL times. Ortiz wanted to dance, hug, and kiss
    Floyd. Enough already, fight..So Fight Floyd did.. To bad so sad. A rookie ,
    Ortiz, got schooled…Simple..Ortiz was out boxed and match from the start of
    the fight, Ortiz was so frustrated by Floyd’s skills, that he lost his mind and
    heat butted Floyd. What type of sportsmanship was that? Im glad Floyd put Larry
    in his place. Being 80 yrs old does protect you from debate. If Larry has the
    nerve to put Floyd down instead of congratulating him on his win, then Larry
    leaves himself wide open for rebuttal. I have always over the years muted Larry
    during HBO fights. Larry has been hit in the head way to many times of the
    years. He rambles on with unintelligible speech more often than not. I often
    wondered if he was on some type of drug or alcohol. Larry needs to retire. Do
    not hate Floyd nor count his money, then you will be able to have a more bias
    view of the fight.

    I’m not sure if it’s Mayweather the WWE wrestler or Mayweather the businessman present at this fight, but I’d sure like to see Mayweather the athlete.  That was a pure bullshit dog and pony show, completely disrespectful to the fans and sport….I’m glad I pirated that fight, that chickenshit doesn’t deserve a cent of my money.

  • Anonymous

    Fixed it, thanks. Rushed the post out so we could get this ridiculousness out there as soon as possible. Also, not sure where you get that I called anyone out on their grammar…or where you got the Yahoo thing from. I don’t work for them in any capacity, nor is this site affiliated with Yahoo in any way. 

  • mike

    love mayweather but he was wrong to jump merchant he was just doing the interview

  • Rayjones6116

    Amen

  • Henryutuc

    has no respect to his elders.

  • young$

    Larry Merchant you old fool! Nobody pays $50 to hear you talk, so shutup and let the fighter thank his team. Now everyone misses out because of that old retard!

  • Rayjones6116

    Larry has a problem with focusing on the main point…He dritfs off on any thought that enters his head and puts a twist on it that is most of the time way off base. Time to go to Florida and retire

  • Kpcw0125

    i think everybodies pissed because they wanted the fight to go longer! If the fight was unfair, let them fight again but i think Mayweather would win again.

  • rplaya

    disqualified for what, the round started. Its optional to tap gloves, not manditory. HE ALready apologized with a hug and peck on the cheek, they seperated and the bell rung to resume the fight, they tapped again and booom, lights out. thats all ortiz fault. he got hit once, and kept looking at the ref, when he should ducked and ran.

  • Rayjones6116

    Jaggowinski…You sounds prejudice…Shame on
    you…

  • Wlcoro

    The only reason he jump on larry because he did nothave an amswer to what he did… That was a shp shot and a coward move… Lost respect for him.. He shoil be ashame to call himself a fighter and a champ..

  • Jvgayweather

    hey, team gayweather, ask manny to fight with you?, if “gayweather” is man enough!!!! 

  • D1bton

    I am a Mayweather fan but was very disappointed in his professionalism tonight. Two wrongs don’t make it right. Ortiz was wrong with the head bunt, but Mayweather was wrong in striking Ortiz when the ref was not looking and you can clearly see that Ortiz was extending his apologize. Floyd is the older more mature fighter but none of this was displayed tonight.

  • rplaya

    thats becuz the general public doesn’t like him. people root for people they personally like. Fact is, mayweather is boxing, but since he has a unconventional way of living people don’t want him to continue his success. i didn’t see ortiz throwin a fit afterward, he knew he made the mistake.

  • Mercadro79

    Floyd is abitch , he keeps dodging pacman as he has always done all his career, only fights people over the hill, what disgrace this guy is.

  • Moneyregg

    The ref said let’s go so that mean let’s fight ok.

  • OneWithaloha

    How come no one is noticing that Ortiz wasn’t paying attention, and was in some sort of lala land.  He stopped fighting after the head butt and was so concerned with apologizing, that he wasn’t focused on fighting.  I love him for his heart, but I’d say Ortiz was unprofessional and changed the fight.  Yes Mayweather could have waited till he was Finally ready, but how many hugs and apologies is the guy gonna give?  It was a fight not a Bromance.  Mayweather was caught off guard, and his emotions got the best of him, and for that he’s kind of a dick, however, he did nothing “wrong”.  I say get a new Ref, HBO announcer, and have a rematch!! 

  • Moneyregg

    Pacquiao stay fighting boxers coming off a lost step your game up

  • Moneyregg

    U coming off a lost nanny will fight u that sucks .

  • rplaya

    wow really, u don’t have to be pleased. he protected his record. say that headbutt made him wuzzy and mayweather got knocked out cuz of it, then he’ll have a loss on his record for some bs. and regardless of what we say about his loss or what ortiz did that 1 loss will stick. i would of done the same and walked away jus fine. i’m a man, a man willing to protect whats mine, not one who keeps apologizing and kissin dudes on the cheek. but if thats a man to you.  doo you

  • Monryregg

    Was u watching the fight he took a point and then said let’s go dont that mean fight not hug .

  • Bdyumyum

    Congratulation Floyd, appearantly you beat a young, inexperienced and dumb fighter. Thank you for proving that you can’t handle true challengers. Buff said.

  • Smokey66

    Floyd dished out the correct punishment for a blatant cheap head butt, if you are fair about judging the first three rounds, the same result would have occurred.  One thing that I agree with, Larry Merchant is the worst boxing commentator of all time, how he has kept his job is mind boggling.  Jim Lampley and Max Kellerman are following in Merchants foot steps.  Ortiz could see the writing on the wall, was frustrated and  head butted Mayweather.   

  • Joe_789456

    Always has been? I’m pretty sure he would have fought him back in the day when he was fighting at 130 and Manny was fighting at 106-112.

  • Moneyregg

    The ref said let’s fight and that’s what he did dumb ass

  • Rayjones6116

    I agree, it was time to fight, Ortiz got caught up in his
    apology to Floyd. He took his eye off the ball and got tagged.. Does anyone else
    wonder about Ortiz’s condition after re-gaining 17 or so pounds after weigh
    in?

  • rplaya

    he was wrong, but what he said was right. during the other fight merchan was laughn at him cuz he had his kids. sayn he trying to show the public his sympathic. every 24/7 mayweather displays his love for his kids. and for merchant to discredit a man for that, that ain’t right. i’ve been watching all of money’s fights and merchant always has an excuse for y mayweather won other than his talent. this time he got called out.

  • Moneyregg

    Give the man his just dues

  • Lilbrave1

    I am a boxing fan first. Why make sure everyone is paying attention before you continue to whip someone’s ass! Before the 1st bell rings the ref says PROTECT YOURSELF AT ALL TIMES! I would have liked to see Floyd do his thing a little longer too but it was time for him to go.

  • Rayjones6116

    rplaya.. You make a very good point.,suppose that head butt did make Floyd dizzy or very hurt, then what? That would have given Ortiz an unfair advantage..Great point..Then for Ortiz to dance and kiss Floyd…A tap of the gloves is usally good enough and then get ready to rumble…

  • pennymayweather

    put him down??? did you ride the small school bus to school??? Was he supposed to say congratulation and ignore the pink elephant in the room that had everyone at home still gasping?? You idiot its his job to ask these questions…. PENDEJO

  • kidx

    I agree. The only people that are mad at Floyd are people who don’t know anything about boxing, or people who are in the Ortiz camp (or his die-hard fans). The ref had started the round…true, the ref wasn’t paying attention, but there is no rule in boxing that states you have to wait till your opponent is ready and the ref is watching before you can throw a punch. Mayweather either 1) took advantage of Ortiz being overly apologetic and having his hands down 2) took advantage of a bad referee or 3) both. After that flagrant head butt, I’m glad Mayweather knocked Ortiz the f— out.

  • Rayjones6116

    Jesse , if the ref and Ortiz were both sleeping, what does
    that have to do with Floyd’s action? Two morons dont make it right….Floyd
    knows what he is doing and anyone that disagrees is a sore loser. Ortiz made an
    amateur mistake..

  • Guest

    Hands Down…… Man Down….. LOL Good fight Floyd. Ortiz was outmatched and got frustrated. Lets give credit where credit is due. You guys are funny talking about Floyd disrespected an 80 year old man, give it a break

  • Eyelusion

    This felt more like WWE than boxing. Boxing has lost a lot of its reputation over the past few years and this doesn’t help any.  The ref not looking while sucker punches are thrown?  The knocked out fighter is smiling afterward with no regard for his loss?  Fixed.  Boxing is a lost sport.

  • kidx

    Since when is it a rule that a boxer has to make sure that the ref is watching before he throws a punch?

    If Ortiz never illegally head-butted Mayweather, he would not have gotten knocked out the way he did. He only has his self to blame, and next time he’ll know to play fair.

  • Mwhitten

    Larry’s questions were loaded, and didn’t make any sense. Other than saying “congratulations” every question that he asked Mayweather centered around him saying that he threw a cheap shot. Mayweather doesn’t have to sit there and listen to that.

  • K0$K!n6

    POS? ? ? MM was headbutted, was kicking Ortiz’ A$$ for 3 rounds and  knocked him out during live action. Say what you want, watch the replay! This goes to show you, always keep your guard up and be ready to rock n roll. Everyone and Ortiz are looking for an excuse. Ortiz is not in the same league by no means. He was getting rocked and let’s not forget the headbutt that started it all! Good for MM to thank the man above, we all gotta start somewhere. Good luck to all the HATERS, excuses are what weak people are made of.

  • kidx

    Are you serious? A double DQ? This isn’t pro wrestling. And a fine? For what, winning the fight? You don’t fine boxers for boxing. That’s retarded.

  • kidx

    Yeah, Larry’s questions weren’t making very much sense.

  • Rayjones6116

    rplays…Yes, I heard Larry talk about Floyd and his kids as they were entering the MGM and
    making negative remarks about it. I thought that was so unprofessional and I
    felt Larry’s jealousy of Floyd’s boxing and buisness skills. Even Emanuel Steward said to Larry that he was way off
    base and his comment was not warranted. Larry has been a real ass over the
    years. I so often wonder how he got or keeps his job.

  • Lilbrave1

    Dumb ass, Ortiz is 10 years younger than Floyd.

  • kidx

    Since when does a boxer have to wait until the ref is watching before he can throw a punch? That’s absurd. I mean, is he supposed to be like “okay, man, are you done apologizing yet so we can fight? Ok, now referee Joe Cortez: are you ready too? Okay, can I punch now…here it comes…”

  • kidx

    I totally agree. Ortiz needs to quit worrying about looking like a good guy ala Oscar De La Hoya and worry a little more about the person that he’s fighting. He apologized like 7 times…enough already, time to box.

  • kidx

    I’m really sick of Larry Merchant too. He has no business doing post fight interviews anymore, because he doesn’t make any sense. He’s ok when he’s at ringside, but he can’t give a good interview any more.

  • Guest

    Boxing is def losing its rep, but boxing also knows it needs Floyd Mayweather. Without him they are lost. Manny is a great fighter, but Floyd gives you a show from training camp to the fight. Floyd sells tickets. This guys knows how to work this business, please stop hating on that man

  • Rayjones6116

    Smokey… Im glad I am not alone when I often wonder how Larry
    Merchant has and holds his job.. Larry is really burnt. He has one foot on a
    banana peel and the other in the old folks home..Ortiz is lucky the fight ended
    when it did, Ortiz would have suffered great embarrassment and brain damage if
    the fight went the distance…I do not know why boxing fans just do not want to
    give Floyd his rightful props.. Floyd is a very talented and smart fighter.

  • Jaimealopez11

    Ortiz was wrong for headbutt, but as usual a myate showed his colors!

  • Rayjones6116

    kidx.. I like the way you put that…Was Ortiz waiting for a
    written invitation?

  • Fight fan

    The person to blame I think is the ref. Yes you should protect yourself at all times but the ref should have more contol over the fight. Ortiz did headbutt mayweather which was a foul but what Floyd did was in my opinion was worse. Floyd needed to end the fight somehow and if he didn’t end it that way he might of got knocked out himself

  • Sessboogie

    ok lets get it right people ortiz threw a cheap head butt lost a point apologized and mayweather threw a cheap shot back all you mayweather fans should not be happy or proud of your fighter this was a foul way for him to win and for the fight to end  then the rant at a 80 year old man was just a disgrace mayweather is a champion conduct yourself as such he would have won the fight anyway but now he looks like a jackass on many levels a great fighter with a shitty character the only fight left is pac-man but it wont happen mark my words he holds the only threat to the champs perfect record the most dangerous fight for mayweather but his arrogance and being able to pat himself on the back for having a perfect record will always keep him from fighting  the best competition

  • JBTHRILLA

    manny wont take the test…..if you want to beat the best, take the test…..mayweather aint no bitch and he wants to fight manny but manny wont take the test…..mayweather has been doing it for every fight so what makes pacman so special?

    Hey retard the ref doesn’t have to be looking for you to get yourself knocked the hell out.  I hope you don’t have kids jerk.

    pacman would definitely kick GAYwheather’s ass!!! f*kin gay retard!

  • Rayjones6116

    No small school bus,, sorry to disappoint you.. Larry has a long history of
    this type of twisted view of Floyd. Not sure how log you have followed Floyd and
    Larry on HBO.. This just happen to be the straw that broke the camels back….Im
    also amazed how you and other so not understand protect your self at all times.
    The ref says that statement before each and every fight.

  • http://twitter.com/muckboy_1 Dee Aaa

    Boxing is not a hug fest. Bottom line is this he shouldn’t have gotten dirty. He knew he couldn’t beat Floyd so he tried to get disqualified or the alternative which is to get knocked the hell out! Stop being a hater. I personally didn’t want the fight to end like that but it did and it was totally legal and would have happened anyway, so deal with it!

  • JBTHRILLA

    im not saying he wont…..but everybody saying that mayweather wont fight him is just as stupid….i would like to see mayweather get beat and somebody shut him up….i dont agree with what he did tonight but everybody needs to stop saying he wont fight pacman when its pacman that wont agree to the terms

  • Jaimealopez11

    frustrated for a cheap boxer who avoids the best and then becomes a “bitch”

  • http://twitter.com/muckboy_1 Dee Aaa

    lol, that’s exactly what Floyd said, ‘If you make a mistake you got’s to pay.” Hands down man Down, Momma there goes that Man!!! lol

  • JBTHRILLA

    and what are you even on here for gayweather all your doing is talkin mess cuz your mad he won…..shut up and go to bed

  • Rayjones6116

    Dee You responded to the wrong person. My view is the same as yours. :)

  • Fight fan

    I agree D1, the ref should of had more control of the fighters during the break. Cortez didn’t even see it happen. I think he was eyeing the ring card girl outside the ring! Lol

  • http://twitter.com/muckboy_1 Dee Aaa

    STFU you stupid azz moron and those of you who clicked on “like” can all get what Ortiz got!! Bastards!!!

  • Sessboogie

    what terms oh the Olympic drug test weekly please its a boxing match follow the boxing commissions rules and get the fight over with 

  • http://twitter.com/muckboy_1 Dee Aaa

    Head butt: Illegal       Knockout Punches: Legal     Protect yourself at all times……. Not sometimes!  Case closed…………Next up Manny and then what will be the excuse after that. Give the man his credit he would have won regardless. He was schooling Ortiz and I actually like Oritz but he was just getting out classed

  • JBTHRILLA

    yea true but what im saying is mayweather and his opponents have been doing this…..its not something he made up so he didnt have to fight pacman….noone else has had a problem with it

  • Na

    You obviously don’t pay attention to fights otherwise you would have known that the round was over. The incident happened in the last ten seconds of the round. Both are stupid for their cheap shots and I would never pay to see these two clowns fight again. Except for the super fight. Props to Eric M for making history

  • Yomomma

    Mobb set it up!!! Lol… Don King is that you!!!

  • Pipeset2003

    Ummm idk what Chris below me is thinking but u thinking a person who has to use his head to hurt someone deserves to be a winner????yeah ok. And FYI Ortiz was getting his ass kicked already he had no chance. He’s never been in the ring with a fighter like mayweather sorry go cry somewhere else

  • Kyle

    1. God doesn’t exist. 2. The headbutt from Ortiz was ILLEGAL and completely fucked up. I would’ve done the same thing to Ortiz because nowhere in the rules states you have to touch gloves and hug after someone headbutts you so Mayweather’s two punch combo was perfectly ok.

  • Blackvien

    my nigga shame on him,!!

  • Kenja17

    Jive ass soul brother? you sissy ass crackers make me sick.  At the end of the day, your punk ass paid your money to watch Floyd do his thing.

  • Cuzzo925

    Floyd Mayweather had that bottled up in him for his WHOLE career being
    ridiculed by Larry Merchant. Every fight he has something bad to say.
    Completely justifiable. A little overboard with the name calling but
    completely justifiable. Larry Merchant is a horrible commentator.
    Replace his with Teddy Atlas or Roy Jones Jr and we have something. I
    believe in respecting your elders but I also believe in, “If you want
    respect, you must give it.” Mr. Merchant never gives floyd respect. Just
    cheap lil comments and a compliment every now and then. Just give Floyd
    his respect! He is the best right now. Pacquaio take The Test and
    Mayweather stop taking vacations! We all want to see this fight. Not a
    one sided Ortiz Vs Mayweather 2.

  • Floyd Mayweather is a Bitch

    gayweather cheated

  • Floyd Mayweather is a Bitch

    The reason people are so pissed is because Gayweather is a bitch. Hes got no class. What is this cage fighting? A classy champion would have won by squaring up not taking cheap shots. And yes it was a cheap shots. And no this is not a court of law so you cant defend him like OJ Simpson. Its a boxing ring and he is guilty of being a BITCH.

  • Maxking1

    although it was legal, anyone that sees the replay knows it was  a sucker punch cheap shot…ortiz had his hands completely down, if you can brag about knocking a man out when he has his hands down in a post fight interview, that says something about a persons character. Think about it, that might be why he lost his temper in the interview, he had to watch  himself knock out a guy that had his hands completely down! Whether the rules state protect yourself at all times or not, a real champion doesnt reward an apology with a sucker punch!  Sure Ortiz threw a dirty head butt in the heat of the moment, but apologized for it immediately afterwards, and  didnt complain a bit when the cheap shot mayweather threw him back cost him the fight. That doesnt mean Ortiz thought it was right, it simply means he was the bigger man.

  • Mikhailjoshua

    I think he said that to Larry Merchant coz he know for damn sure he’s gonna ask if Pacquiao is next, Of course he want to change the subject.

  • Apathyfan

    he would have never knocked him out ortiz was coming back before the head butt most boxing matches ive watched go all rounds and are boring as hell wanna see them really fight train them in mma and let them fight than it would be more fun

  • Mikhailjoshua

    MONEY VS. MANNY, How about that? PACMAN VS. DUCKMAN

  • Guest837

    Head butts, low blows… all that crap happens in so many fights. The guys take their penalty point and move on. S*** happens in the heat of the fight. You should have respect for the sport and your competitors and not sink to cheap shots. I was at the fight and what you all don’t hear on this interview is an entire audience booing Mayweather – that is why he was so pissed. No one was kissing his ass for a change. Ortiz screwed up and he was penalized… Mayweather made a cheap shot and won. The fans deserved a fair fight and we got screwed… at $1250 a ticket in my case. Very disappointing.

  • Mcmuroz

    Dear Mayweather

    God is not on your side, god pushes people he does not like to the top so he can drop you down from a further distance, and one day u will drop hard and get crippled by it. you are a dirty fighter and a cowered

  • Big_quads

    Should he waited like Holyfield to get his ear bit off before he did something about it?

  • Trivmaz1225

    Anyone who sides with Mayweather is either a you know what or classless. You think for 1 minute that Ali would pull some classless shit like Mayweather did last night?? I could give two fucks about the both of these dudes, but what I saw was so god damn cheap. He could have killed Ortiz  or any boxer with a shot like that. So take your heads outta your asses classless pussies.

  • Actriv

    Hey Eddy, I hope you get hit by a car!

  • Guest

    Didn’t Tyson extend his apologies to Holyfield… right before he bit off his EAR?!

  • Guest

    Actually, he did man handle him all the rounds that led up to the knock out… weren’t you watching the fight?

  • guest

    … or get head-butted again… or get his left ear bitten off… or a knee to the groin…

  • Guest

    It’s “coward”.  So the head-butt wasn’t dirty?  Wasn’t the head-butt that led up to the knockout?  Should he just wait around for more hugs and kisses (and maybe get an ear bitten off)?  Maybe he learned from the Tyson-Holyfield fight and ended it early because he knew he can out-box Ortiz (obvious from the first 3.5 rounds)… instead of waiting around for more cheap shots.  Or maybe he just wanted to school Ortiz and make a statement, “Son, you don’t take cheap shots with a head-butt… you do it legally when the ref’s not looking… like THIS!!” *bam**BAM*  … lights out…

  • Motts

    The only thing this fight proves is that Manny will absolutely destroy a very frightened Mayweather. No interest in the headbutt or cheap knockout both fighters running scared trying to get an advantage.

    Illegal headbutt, mayweather angry, should have waited, was going to ko or stop him anyway. Was a cheap shot, will get annihilated by Manny. Give Khan a go first. Erik is the true warrior! No bs

  • Floyds boyfriend no1

    Hey e13 thats wrong. Punch was legal so it ain’t mata. Money is the champ! I think Jesse vargas should fight manny first

  • Babyglock9108

    cheapshot? it was all orchastrated even a retart would have noticed. Mayweather whispers in Ortiz’s ear, are you ready and then the end of the plot. Even WWF  is not as fake as matweather!

  • Kayjones1234

    Classless is when Ortiz knew he was outclassed and was going to lose the fight against Mayweather and resorted to several attempts of head butting to even the playing field.  Mayweather should have knocked him out when he tried to hug  him right afterwards.

  • Kayjones1234

    Your right it was the straw the broike the camels back.  Floyd has been putting up with Larry’s hate for a long time now.  You would think that Larry would finally give Mayweather credit for his skills and congratulate him after this long, but I some old dogs you can’t teach new tricks.  Beside Larry’s love and fascination with pacman makes him too bias to report fairly.  You don’t have to like mayweathers antics or lifestyle outside the ring, but you have to respect his skills and give him his props inside the rings.

  • Kayjones1234

    No respect for elders that don’t show respect.  Larry “Hater” Merchant had this coming for a while.  He has been hating on mayweathers talent at every chance he gets while on live television.  Surprised mayweather put up with it this long.  Larry must have been on his meds though…..http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=H0J6_-KmYEQ

    Ortiz was stupid but was penalized for the headbutt. If the fight was called to action why wasn’t the ref looking in the direction of both fighters?  Punk ass Mayweather took advantage of the situation, but he is still a punk ass for taking the shot. Can’t wait for Manny to decimate him and/or Mayweather to finally step in the Octagon with a MMA Title fighter in his weight class and see that dismantling of his big mouth.  Like Coutre gave to James Toney, hopefully a good arm bar to dislocate his elbow or a shin/knee to the head, that would be oh so sweet.

    even in ufc they respect each other more then in this stupid boxing this fucker go in there and
    regardless what they do they go home with millions its about time something happens with boxing
    i would not pay a dime to see anyone fight know more mayweather dont have know respect for know one
    and hes just into himself the man said he was sorry. and mayweather still holded a grash.its not profesional.

  • Ghost666

    Cheap shot is a cheap shot is a bitch move. Legal or not. That’s a cheap shot in any combat sport. That’s a cheap shot in grade school playground. Everyone should feel cheated by mayflower. What a ripoff.

    Ortiz was lookin at mayweather the whole time.  He wasnt lookin at the ref.  He also thru an elbo earlier in the fight.  Its while he had mayweather on the ropes.  No one has said anything about that.

  • Megoins73

    Ok I will say this. I am not a huge fan Of Mayweather at all.  He is annoying.. But having said that.. Its a fight..  Ortiz head butted the man.  Hie said sorry a million times..  If you watch ig when they were coming to the center of the ring.  Floyd is ready to fight and Ortiz kept saying sorry.  Floyd said ok.  He had his hands up the whole time.  the ref said time and ortiz never put his hands up. AFter he got hit the first time.  He looked at the ref like “hey did you see that”"  what did he expect.  I agree it was a leagal sucker punch.  But what in the world does everyone think is suppsoe to happen  Its a ight.  Protect yourself as all times.  If Floyd hadda lost after Victor hit him with the head and got knocked out.  I bet no one would be saying anything..

  • Es Downtown

    Some one explain to me….how hitting some one after the ref said fight a cheap shot? I am no fan of floyd or vic, but I do admit that they are both great fighters. I have followed mayweather since he was 16 and his style and ways are not conventional. However this was a simple mistake on Ortiz’s behalf and mayweather exploited the mistake and legally knocked him out. There is no rule I repeat no rule stating that a ref must be paying attention in order for a boxer to punch his opponent especially once the ref had signaled for the fight to begin. Would this be somthing Mohammed Ali would have done? Let me ask you this…is mayweather Mohamed Ali? No! So stop bringing that comparison. He saw an opportunity and he took it. Consequently he won. The end.

    the headbutt was already taken care of a point was deducted resulting to almost a disqualfication
    but since there wasnt any damage on may face and may even got a apology and may got lucky i say because he was stuck in the corner getting almost knock out so ortiz gives you a point and gets you out of the corner gives you a break and a kiss and a hug what more do you want cry baby.just pause the replay where may left hook hits ortiz when u pause you will see that the ref does not see the 1st left hook and u will also see that may looks at the ref and may knew the ref wasnt looking and thats why he went for it cause thats what cowards do when they arent confident that they could win and ortiz doesnt even have his hands up and you still take a punch when the ref didnt even make it to the middle his eyes arent in the ring and he doesnt make you shake hands what is this ref on drugs and i dont hear a ring but i guess people knew the fight started when the ref doesnt even have his eyes in the match but looking outside and the worste part is ortiz takes the first punch like nothing and looks at the ref because his eyes arent in the match and may still takes another swing even when he knoiws his opponent is waiting for the ref still what a true coward and this gets better the ref starts counting from the number 5 because the ref outside are counting way before the real ref could so the ref starts from five seriuosly how much money was on the table cause i see the ref outside countng for you really fast like really hyper to get his winnings this was  so fix anyone who agrees to sucker punche someone in the real world shows your a coward and a backstabber just so you know and its really sad that everyone thinks they should cheat for payback sorry but a true champion doesnt cheat or doesnt need to cheat cuz there champion and for the announcer he seen every fight and his never done that so does that tell you something he ask the right questions and i know he ask the right questions because 70 percent of the world are still asking these questions so may u are gonna have to answere these questions eventually and the next person that thinks that wasnt right try to think before u talk and try to answere a question with education and class not like a 50 cent thug gangbanger weed smoker u are definetly not a champion u are a fake champion and u lost peoples respect already and if may wantd to be abitch then he should have head butt back and get a point deducted back  

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_TEKSEROQBSOCM5Z7EYEDATY7Y4 checkmate

    your a dumbass so if may wants to be a champion pussy he should headbutt back but a real champion knocks a man down with his hands up but you dont know about that cause you a pussy too and why do you think ortiz look at the ref cause he wasnt looking so how does a match start with out a ref someone please explain no bell,no shake hands,not even say lets have a clean fight speech like every ref has done for years you know nothing about boxing u think this is street boxing with no rules and no ref well it aint dumbass

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_TEKSEROQBSOCM5Z7EYEDATY7Y4 checkmate

    another dumbass there is a rule in boxing where when a ref stops a match they must restart the match what a dush bag and again this isnt street fighting a ref either gives the clean match speech or rings the bell or the ref  has to go in the middle and grab both gloves and make sure they pound this isnt street fighting dush bag and how can a match start without a ref excaxtly dumbass and the headbut was taken care of if it bother may that much he should have did it back resulting to a point taken off and the head butt didnt touch him cry baby and what does that have anything to do about being a pussy coward

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_TEKSEROQBSOCM5Z7EYEDATY7Y4 checkmate

    so a ref starts a match with his eyes away okay dumbass so many people with no common sense its a fact that may left hook hit ortiz when the ref eyes where away from the match and thats how you start a match and pay attention how many sec after the hug did may hit ortiz just 1 second after the hug what a coward champion a real champion in professional boxing beats a man down with his hands up bacause of sportsmanship and because a champ need to earn it not cheat

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_TEKSEROQBSOCM5Z7EYEDATY7Y4 checkmate

    ortiz  didnt take his eyes off he just finish hugging him and 1 second later the hug gave your coward champion a good shot without the ref in there so what we learn is the champion is dirty oscar de la hoya would not do this cause he has class something you dont know about cause your a pussy

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_TEKSEROQBSOCM5Z7EYEDATY7Y4 checkmate

    another dumbass but by far the biggest it wasnt several headbutts because then he would have been disqualified and ortiz had may in the corner a possible ko but the headbut not only save  may but it gave him a break time to relax and a point that put him in the lead by far and what does the head butt have to do with being a coward if it bother him that much he should have did it back resulting to a point deduction or a possible disqualfication do to the impact in the damage but a real champion doesnt win a match like a pussy a real man hit another man with his hands up not with his hands tied to his back retard

  • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_TEKSEROQBSOCM5Z7EYEDATY7Y4 checkmate

    you just took the lead for the biggest retard award why are you focusing on the head butt when there was no damage and that got may out of the corner which was good cause he was getting his ass whoop and that was taken care of already he got a point,out of corner,and a break it has nothing to do with hitting a man with his hands tied to his back with no ref cause he to busy looking out the ring and a real champion fights a man with his hands up and proves hes better then the other but u know nothing about tht cause you are fucking stupid pussy who takes a cheap shot oppurtunity to win cause u cant win the hartd way cause your like this fake champion a dirty ass fighter who cant win in a fair match

    NEITHER of these fighters (or anybody else  in this era) could compare with Ali, Frazier, Foreman, etc.

    That being said – people owe Tyson an apology for biting an ear –a head but?? really??  Ortiz deserved the smackdown.  At least Mayweather PUNCHED; not acted like a bully on the playground.

  • NC

    Cheap shot would be the head but!  Then, Ortiz whined to the ref to take care of him…AFTER his little playground action really made Mayweather mad.

    I could care less about these fighters – but some people on here need a big dose of reality.  (I actually wouldn’t recognize either one of them on the street) 

    If Ortiz is going to cheat and take cheap shots – don’t whine when it bites you back.

  • JohnG

     LOL How can you people negate when the ref has already stated. He said he told them to fight! do people really hate Mayweather that much that they will disregard FACTS? The first thing the ref tells all fighters before a fight, when they are face to face in the ring is to “Protect yourself at all times” … So when Ortiz doesnt listen, its “mayweather is classless”….Typical “todays generation”…. blame everyone else for your problems, but definitely dont own up to it. LOL Blame Floyd for getting headbutted, and then, WAITING until it was LEGAL to hit again, then KNOCKING Ortiz out! LOL You guys really hate Floyd, no wonder he keeps winning!

  • ace

    I must say both fighters were in the wrong… Ortiz for the head but and also for not protecting him self at all times..  May for the punch that knock Ortiz out…  If Mayweather had him beat then why not beat him with some class and not the crappy display of sportsmanship…  They are both to blame in this fight unfortunatly for ortiz he loss and fortunaly for Mayweather he won.. Eathier way they are both losser in this fight…

  • Anonymous

    I’m glad I didn’t pay for that fight……I’ve been watching alot of boxing matches over the years….and Mayweather while a legal Sucker Punch….it was a still a sucker punch.

    Ortiz had the point deducted….and Mayweather was in the lead…..so it wasn’t even necessary. Then he went off on Merchant…..which makes no sense…it is true that Mayweather is more worried about his perfect record than actually having entertaining fights and waiting for opponents past their prime.

    This match is a black eye (yet again) on boxing. That ref lost control of the fight completely.

    Its too bad Mayweather will not fight Pacquiao (we all know that Mayweather was the one who killed the deal by backpedaling over and over during the negotiations)……it would have been a great fight a year ago…..but now Pacquiao shouldn’t even bother giving Mayweather any consideration.

  • Pdq

    right, and OJ was innocent.

  • BossRoller

    Scenario 1 – Headbutt doesn’t happen: Ortiz possibly wins the 4th round and is down 1 round to 3. In subsequent rounds Mayweather timing and countering will lead to increasingly lopsided rounds ending in a late KO by Mayweather or a lopsided decision. EVERYONE discredits Ortiz as a garbage fighter like they did Berto after his loss. He is a forgotten fighter and has no grounds to get a possible rematch with Mayweather for another big payday.

    —–

    Scenario 2 – Headbutt does happen: Lots of possibilities.

    (a) The referee doesn’t see a headbutt mixed in with Ortiz’s flurry and he gets away with it to gain a major advantage. The blow may hurt Mayweather or, at the very least, may disrupt Mayweather calm, calculated demeanor. Maybe an angry Mayweather opens up his guard more allowing Ortiz to catch him.

    (b) Same as (a) except he does get caught by Joe Cortez and is penalized a point for the infraction. Considering the eventuality of Scenario 1 if nothing is done, this does not seem like a heavy price.

    (c) Mayweather is unable to continue and is awarded a DQ win. Ortiz sows the seed of doubt about what would have happened if the headbutt never happened. Mayweather may give Ortiz a rematch to make him pay. Rematch = another $2.5 million + PPV %.

    —–

    I guess my point is that, if Ortiz had the notion of using an intentional headbutt as part of his strategy to throw Mayweather off if he was getting his ass kicked early, it would actually be kinda smart.

  • Anonymous

    So now he’ll be known for a cheap shot, getting talked down by an old man, and being too coward to even fight Manny.

    Lets put it straight, Mayweather won the match and is smiling as he looks at his bank account. I am sorry he won but I had to bet agains Ali for a long time before it paid off “Very Well.”  He will always be considered the Best, Mayweather maybe number 3, you can fill in number 2.

    You should take a look at how many people like your comments.  It’s an indicator of how many people actually agree with nonsense you’re spewing. 

  • Dizzub

    You saying Mayweather is dirty
    1. Ortiz was losing alll night before he got KTFO  2. Ortiz INTENTIONALLY headbutted Mayweather out of frustration 3. Fighting 101, never take your eye off the guy your fighting ESPECIALLY after you touch gloves and your standing 2ft away from the guy. It doesn’t matter if its boxing, mma, muay thai or any type of sanctioned fight  Ortiz had a mental lapse and that lapse got his a$$ knocked out plain and simple.
    If u want to blame someone blame the ref for not sending them to their corners…

  • Deepsouthtrucking

    U should not comment when u know nothing about boxing, first rule is to protect yourself at all times? Ortiz didn’t do that!

    Mayweather doesn’t know shit about boxing.  A lot of it is about sportsmanship.  Ortiz’s actions after the head but made it clear as day that he felt bad for getting out of control and doing that. His hands were still down because he was awaiting Mayweather to accept the ceremonial apology (as any other boxer with an ounce of class would have). CHEAP SHOT.

  • Gamerchic512

    No the people who thinks Mayweather did something dirty don’t know
    anything about boxing and also didn’t pay attention to the fight and the
    replays of what happenend.  Ortiz gave a headbutt to Mayweather then in
    the corner he apoligized once with a hug and kiss. Then Mayweather
    shoock his head ” No u headbutted me in my mouth”. Then Mayweather went
    to his right side almost in the middle on the ropes and Ortiz apoligized
    twice and they both touched gloves. Then Cortiz after deducting the
    point Cortiz swings his arms and said lets go…in a way to come on and
    fight. Cortiz did not grab the gloves like he may should have, but he
    didn’t stand in between.. he meant lets go fight.  Finally Mayweather is
    ready to fight and for the third time Ortiz wanted to hug and you can
    see Mayweather looking at his gloves wondering what are you doing..then
    Mayweather kinda touch his gloves and banged him like an aware fighter
    should have done and aware of the 2 seconds on the clock. The questions
    and criticizing should go toward Ortiz and Cortez.  If you want to say
    its a cheap hit then when someone get up from being knocked down then it
    shouldn’t be allowed to strike a boxer until he get his head together.
    duh. Stop worrying about who u like and don’t like. I actually gained some kind of respect or something from Merchant that night. I’m really not sure why, but never really cared for the guy  .  I think i’m just a fair sport fanatic chic.
