Floyd Mayweather Jr. Vs. Victor Ortiz: The Highs & Lows

09.18.11 6 years ago 67 Comments

Floyd Mayweather Jr. won last night’s prizefight against defending champion Victor Ortiz with a fourth round KO at the 2:59 mark. Floyd Mayweather’s the new World Boxing Council welterweight champion. The summation reads plain yet the fight was anything but.

1. In the fourth, referee Joe Cortez took away a point from Ortiz, charging him with an intentional head butt. The fighters embraced and Ortiz kissed Floyd. Then, they broke hands and…


2. Mayweather quickly tapped Ortiz with a 1-2 suckerpunch combo that floored the young champ. Questionable but completely legal by boxing’s rules.

3. Mayweather then squared off with 80-year-old HBO boxing analyst Larry Merchant during the post-fight interview, claiming Merchant never gives him “a fair shake…You ain’t sh*t.” Merchant barked back that “I wish I was 50 years younger and I’d kick your ass.”

Let’s take it to the YouTubes, then the comments section.
