Signal was given. It was legal. It was fair.

There was miscommunication and that's the ref's fault.
Ortiz' fault for not protecting himself for the first shot. And he deserved getting knocked out for just looking at the ref instead of getting his hands up for the second shot.

****ty situation for Ortiz, he was holding his own.. but that was a blatant and terrible headbutt.

Pretty Boy For President.

Though Joe Cortez should lose a paycheck. Name one competent referee that actually turns *away* from a fight. Goddammit, you're supposed to have your eyes on the fight at all time.
i don't remember, but if this is true, and he actually didn't start the fight after the break, theres an argument for a NC. If he did start it, theres not obviously.

Need to rewatch this.

Seeing this again makes me dislike Victor Ortiz, what the **** are you smiling for bro. YOu busted your ass training, got a chance to fight Mayweather you get knocked out by two cheap shots because you were kissing his ass and then you're smiling like you just won the Super Bowl.

**** both of these fighters.

Floyd grabbing the mic away and telling some 90 year old dude to go **** himself was gold. The guy is awesome at creating drama gotta hand it to him.

Word just came in that Ortiz was fined by Roger Goodell for launching like that.

haha I thought it was funny also...but looking at Mayweather's POV, he always gets **** from him after every post fight interview.

Larry Merchant hopefully has a bounty on his head.

I saw a hand gesture by Cortez but there was no command to box. this fight is a NC. Mayweather gets to duck Pac for 3/4 year while these two prep to fight again, probably in January

Re: SE Boxing Thread (still waiting for PBF v. Pac)

1. The round hadn't even started.

2. The ref never told the fighters to fight or begin the round.

3. The ref was clearly not looking.

HOW THE **** IS THAT A CLEAN VICTORY? IT SHOULD BE DQ

lol

He did NOT re-start the fight. He gave a warning to Ortiz for the headbutt (quite frankly should have been a point deduction), then turned away to check the clock and that Mayweather sucker punched him twice.

Should be a no contest and the purses of both fighters and the referee should be withheld.

+1. You're a fighter who was just cheated out of an oppurtunity to WIN and you act like it's not big deal. Merchant was angrier than ortiz, wtf.

Also, feel bad for those who paid for this, what a waste. will boycott ppv with mayweather from now on (unless pac is there)

I think theres gonna be a rematch, but i doubt this get declared a nc. I think It's pretty clear from the clip that Cortez made the motion to start the fight.
