(VIDEO) 9/17/11 BOXING: FLOYD MAYWEATHER OUTBURST ON COMMENTATOR LARRY MERCHANT; ORTIZ LOSES

18 Sep

SORRY FOR THOSE WHO MISSED VIDEO-IT HAS BEEN REMOVED ON YOUTUBE DUE TO COPYRIGHT RESTRICTIONS.  NEW VIDEO MAY BE RE-POSTED BY THEM AT A LATER DATE.  PLEASE CHECK BACK.

The much-anticipated fight between Floyd Mayweather and Victor Ortiz took place in Las Vegas tonight.  While it was exciting and full of momentum it was the end that had the crowd on their feet. 

During early rounds the match appeared fairly equal.  But Ortiz had a burst of momentum and apparently headbutt Mayweather.  As they went to make amends and hug Ortiz relaxed his hands and was sucker-punched to the floor.  The audience showed their disdain and yelled in disgust.  It was eventually called a Mayweather win by knockout but that was not the end of the fight.

As the popular and well-respected commentator, Larry Merchant, interviewed Maywearther, he was verbally attacked. Mayweather began a loud assault of words yelling obscenities at Merchant.  He was angry and felt the commentator was “not on his side”, so he screamed “you never give me a fair shake!”  The good news is that Merchant held his ground and yelled back “If I were 50 years younger I’d beat your @#&!”  It was pretty funny to watch an older man standing up to someone clearly in better shape and much younger, but disgusting to see him be disrespected in such poor taste.  Mayweather even went as far to say “HBO should fire you!”

It really was unnecessary and did not show good sportsmanship by our new World Champion of boxing.  What a disappointment.  This is not the behavior we want our youth to follow.  Let’s hope he apologizes.

What a sad day for the sport of boxing…this will go down as one of the most embarrassing moments in sports history.  What do you think?  Should Mayweather apologize?

    Mayweather is just any other brother who just take advantage of his opponent when they are not protected and then call himself victorious. He should be ashamed for not having a good sportsman, now I am convinced why he is so freaking afraid of Pacquiao, he just makes excuses not to fight him.

    Floyd if you have the balls fight him and be victorious, maybe you might get lucky knocking him down on a fair shake. But remember this though, Pacquiao will knock your %@@#@ down to the ground where you belong.

    Floyd is a great World champion! He has nothing to apologize for!!! The commentator knows nothing about boxing, his comments and questions are ridiculous!!! Not just in this fight in others too. Why does it matter how old he is??? He wasn’t disrespected he was told ‘straight’
