Money Mayweather Wins After Bizarre 4th Round KO
Floyd “Money” Mayweather made his return to the rings after 16 months away and showed he stilled had plenty of fight left, earning a bizarre and controversial fourth round knockout over Victor Ortiz to win the welterweight title. In a bizarre sequence of events, Ortiz unloaded a flurry of punches on Mayweather, then headbutted Mayweather, earning an one point deduction. When referee Joe Cortez resumed the fight, Ortiz apologized to Mayweather, then hugged and kissed him. Following this, the two fighters touched gloves, and Mayweather touched Ortiz with two lightning quick punches, the second of which ended the fight. While it appeared Ortiz was trying to talk to the referee, he broke the first rule in boxing- Always keep your guard up. And for good measure, Mayweather cussed out opinionated HBO Boxing analyst Larry Merchant during the post fight interview, to which Merchant replied, ” If I was 50 years younger, I’d kick your ass.” Check out the ending to the fight below.
Here’s hoping we get a Money Mayweather-Pac Man fight soon.Or a Mayweather vs. Larry Merchant fight. At this point, I’d take either.
