Well I have seen alot of crap outta Floyd, but this cheap shot tonight and calling out the crowd and boxing announcers and even swearing at the fans was brutal.
Good boxer or not is that what the boxing champion has come down to if so count me out. Good Job on Larry calling out Floyd, only if he was 50 years younger.
In a crazy ending to one of the biggest boxing matches of the year, Floyd Mayweather knocked out Victor Ortiz with one second remaining in the fourth round of their fight on Saturday night — with two hard punches that Ortiz never even saw coming, because he thought the referee had called a pause to the action.
The wild exchange at the end of the fourth round began with Ortiz battering Mayweather against the ropes, and then landing a head-butt to Mayweather’s chin. The referee, Joe Cortez, immediately stepped in and admonished Ortiz for the head butt, taking the point away.
With that, Ortiz went over to Mayweather, kissed him on the cheek and apologized. Cortez wasn’t even looking at the two of them at that point, and Ortiz seemed to think the fourth round had ended. But the round wasn’t over, and Mayweather drilled Ortiz with a huge 1-2 punch, knocking Ortiz flat on his back. Ortiz wasn’t able to get up as Cortez counted to 10, and Mayweather won by knockout.
