Floyd Mayweather Jr. beat Victor Ortiz with a fourth-round knockout Saturday night in Las Vegas in what will undoubtedly be the most controversial win of his career. Seconds after taking an intentional headbutt from Ortiz, Floyd sucker-punched Ortiz in the face twice. Ortiz went down after the second punch and was out for the count. The fight was short, sad, and incomplete. But whatever entertainment the actual fight lacked was made up for in the post-fight interview between Larry Merchant and Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Larry asked Floyd to describe what went on at the end of the fight and Floyd just wanted to promote. Floyd didn’t want to talk about whether or not his shot was dirty, and when Larry asked him a serious question, Floyd cut him off.
“You never give me a fair shake,” Floyd shouted at Merchant. “You never give me a fair shake! HBO needs to fire you — you don’t know s*** about boxing! You ain’t s***. You got s***!” Floyd bellowed.
“I wish I was 50 years younger and I’d kick your ass,” Merchant retorted.
