Mayweather vs. Ortiz – one good farce deserves another

Well, we knew it wouldn’t be a sleeper going into the fight and that some would get knocked out, we just didn’t know who. As it turns out we also didn’t know HOW. In the most improbable way Ortiz was knocked out in Saturday’s Welter Weight title bout when no one was expecting it, especially him, but he should have been. Word to the wise when you are in a confined area with someone who is trained, and attempting to do you bodily harm, defend yourself AT ALL TIMES! Ok, the reality is that the outcome would have been the same either way, as Money was ahead on all cards and OV’s eye was swelling up, closing shut, and he wouldn’t have been able to see a lightning fast combination coming regardless if it was on the break or not. Additionally, (particularly for you attorneys out there) but for not the illegal head but the fighters wouldn’t have been in that position to begin with, which would have been the cheap shot everyone would have been talking about on Monday and actually would have finally gotten some people off the fence in regard to Floyd, on the positive side but in that regard Money is just snake bitten. Instead the take-a-way is that Flyod’s punch is the only topic of discussion regarding the fight and the he just re-fortified the insurgents of haters with new ammunition. It only got worse after the fight after he verbally sparred with the crypt key holder Larry Merchant. However consider this, if there was ever a chance that Mayweather/Pacquiao would actually happen it’s now. Manny stock has never been higher and neither has the hate scale of those who want to see Floyd taste the canvas. The cheap shot re-raise fight just added $5 to PPV cost because of “Ali Factor” which simply is all those who love him will watch and all of those who hate him will as well to see what he will do next or happen to him next. As a true boxing and sports fan it’s a shame that once again a masterful performance by Floyd will be overlooked, and his antics, attitude, and brashness have taken away from what should be discussed which is a 42-0 record and complete dominance over a substantial period of time in multiple divisions. It’s kind of similar to final line in “The Social Network”. Floyd is not an A@#$%# his is trying so hard to be.
