Floyd Mayweather knocked out Victor Ortiz with a surprisingly quick punch.
Not everyone was happy about the victory.
An illegal headbutt to Mayweather by Oritz caused a momentary pause in the action in the fourth. Ortiz approached Mayweather, gloves lowered, to apologize for the headbutt — despite the fact that it certainly appeared to be intentional. With Ortiz’s guard down immediately after he proffered his apology, Mayweather struck with a quick left. Ortiz, already backing up when that blow landed, was stunned. Mayweather then wound up for, and subsequently landed, a devastating right that sent Ortiz to the canvas.
Questioning by 80-year-old boxing analyst Larry Merchant over the victory, left Mayweather feeling like he had to flex a little.
“You never give me a fair shake, alright, so I am going to do you a favor and let you talk to Victor Ortiz,” said Mayweather. ‘You never give me a fair shake. You are shit and HBO should fire you. You don’t know s*** about boxing. You ain’t s***”
Merchant hit back with,
“I wish I was 50 years younger. I would have kicked your a**.”
