Floyd Mayweather is a sportsman and and a gentleman

Sure, there was a UFC Fight Night on Saturday but the big combat sports story sucking up all the oxygen was Floyd Mayweather being a dirty punk in his fight against Victor Ortiz. After a poorly executed time-in following a headbutt from Ortiz, Mayweather hit his opponent with two quick cheapshots to finish the fight in the 4th round. And then just to spice things up some more he told Larry Merchant during the post fight interview that HBO should fire him because ‘you don’t know shit about boxing.’

    At first i was like…Ortiz deserved that shit for getting all touchy-feely, but then… i realized that mayweather initiated the hug (ortiz was just going to touch gloves). Mayweather gets Ortiz to lean in for the hug…glances at the ref to make sure he’s not looking…clocks Ortiz with the left…glances again at the ref to make sure he got away with it…clocks Ortiz with the right. That’s niggerish, no 2 ways about it

    Mayweather is unquestionably a douche, but Ortiz did deserve it for the headbutt that was the worst most intentional foul I’ve ever seen. That doesn’t make what Mayweather did any less douchey but lets not pretend it wasn’t provoked or that Ortiz is any less of a douche.

    2 wrongs do not make a right….except in combat sports.

    It was said that Ortiz used the outside of his head to cheat and Mayweather used what was inside his head to win. What Floyd did was cheap, dirty but ultimately legal thanks to the incompetant ref.

     

    Even if he loses the rematch I am pretty sure Ortiz wouldn’t mind a another multi million dollar payday.

     

    So surprised Floyd isn’t getting any Fightlinker love, he is wearing the sites colors ffs.

    That gif looks like a complete bitch move but I have to see the head butt.

  • Blackula Jonez

     

    Moral of the story: Save that bro hug shit for the end of the fight & A pissed off Floyd Mayweather is a dangerous fighter.

     

    Not going to front the more I see this gif the more I think Ortiz got what he deserved, but all the cool kids are hating on Mayweather and I so want to sit at the cool kids table.

    that was the most exiting part of the fight. mayweather is actually really boring as a fighter from what i’ve seen. his pretendo-thug act is weak but effective at getting people to talk about him, fight sports need a heel for the plebs to focus on. he’s a decent foil for pacman, but it seems so forced and fake the way he plays it; like wwe with boxing gloves.

    when i was a kid ric flair was my favorite wrestler, and these days i think chael sonnen is hysterical in the absurd shit he says to promote himself with his heel persona, but this mayweather guy seems really forced and contrived in the way he acts, even when compared to a pro wra’stler and a chael. that shit really came off as planned or rehearsed. fucking boxing. i used to love that shit, but its so bad now, like a bag of turds with an occasional chocolate truffle. i keep trying to give shits about it, but its just so lame now that there is mma to compare it to. the ufc has spoiled me.

    if kickboxing got the kind of push that these boxing knobs get then it would be huge in the states. big time boxing is just a weak product now. k1 is so much more fun then this shit they push as boxing these days. so sad.

    does anyone have a gif of paul daley doing that same shit to koscheck so i can compare them?

    Yeah dude had it coming and whattup with the instant hug and kiss after. What an abortion of a fight.

    Stay classy boxing.

  • mamoru

    Dude throws a flying headbutt in the corner, goes for a hug right after, goes for another hug, and then after the ref calls time in, he goes for a third.
    Floyd kept his guard up, and as soon as Ortiz aborted the hug attempt, he got floored. No rules broken, don’t really see the big deal.
    Bit douchey, but that’s just floyd being floyd, he’s a douche through and through, born and bred, shouldn’t really surprise anybody.

  • kvelertak

    The more I think about it the more I’m like… fuck that mexican for bro hugging like it’s Cro-cop v Barry.

    Fuck it. these lads are out to hurt each other.

    Daddypants–>ur wrong.

  • KeyboardWarrior

    I was thinking the hug and kiss he gave him after the headbutt was ortiz mocking mayweather. And to me it looks like floyd was ready to fight and went into the hug position as ortiz tried to touch gloves, which made ortiz think he wanted a hug? Why would anyone hug their opponent after being intentionally headbutted by them…?

  • scissors61

    that KO makes me giggle like a schoolgirl. Protect yourself at all times, nuff said.
