Allow me to state what you already know to be true, but are too scared to admit, Floyd Mayweather is the best thing to happen to boxing in decades.

Hahahahaha!!! The pre-fight instructions from the referee always concludes with, "protect yourself at all times"...not with; "when you intentionally head butt your opponent, stop fighting and kiss and make up". Hehehe!! Ortiz is a complete dumbazz outclassed by Mayweather from the 1st round. Yeah you hope Pacquiao beats Mayweather cause your fighter sure don't have a chance at beating him.

Mayweather is an ass clown but he is one hell of a fighter. Pacman has a good shot but I just don't think he has enough to beat this idiot mayweather although I really hope he does. At least pacman has class and is a gentleman which is what Boxing needs instead of all these thugs. Most would be in jail or dead if it were not for boxing!

Pacquiao can't beat Floyd Mayweather, Bob Arum started the rumor that he was ducking Pacquiao. For those that don't know Floyd was managed by Bob Arum earlier in his career. He left Top Rank and started Mayweather Promotions which ticked Bob Arum off. So to ruin him he has started these rumors. If you take a moment to think you'll realize how ridiculous that is. Floyd is 42-0, he's not ducking anyone. In the Ortiz post-fight interview he spoke openly about the issues. One, Pacquiao is on the juice. Prior to moving up in weight he was weighing in at around 100 lbs. He has packed on 50 lbs of solid muscle! It's not possible without drugs. That's why he's insisting he take a blood test. Second, the real fight is with the promoters. Floyd said Arum came and made him an offer. If you're not familiar with how these negotiations work, there is a favored fighter and a contender. The champ is traditionally the favored but Mayweather is unique in that he is favored even when he holds no belts. He went into the Ortiz fight under the title of "former" champion. Long story short, Arum is trying to promote the fight and have Pacquiao be the favored fighter getting the largest chunk of the money and PPV proceeds. What he's really doing is trying to ruin Floyd's reputation to get even with him for leaving Top Rank. Floyd boxing I.Q. is too high and he would easily beat Pacquiao. His defensive game is superior, his opponents average 16% connects against him. THink about that for a moment, in 42 fights each fighter has only been able to land 16 for every 100 punches. You can't beat what you can't hit. Ortiz landed 18% which would have gone down considerably had the fight continued. Thus the headbutt, he couldn't hit him and he got frustrated and lost it.

No way Floyd beats Manny and yes Floyd has been ducking Manny simply because he does not want to put his perfect record at risk. Mayweather simply will not fight anyone that represents a serious challenge to his record. Floyd lowered himself in his last fight - he was in control and could have won easily without the cheap shot.

In professional sports a athlete takes advantage of every opportunity to be a winner, whether it is a team or individual sport. The "cheap" shot was just a opportunity that Ortiz stupidly opened up for Floyd to beat him. Floyd did and Ortiz lost the contest by making a mistake. The look on the referee's face when it happened explains it all. He's looking at Ortiz like, "are you stupid?". This is Floyd Mayweather you're fighting dumbazz.

Agreed Ortiz showed he wasn't ready to be on the elite stage. The point in Mayweather's case is that just because it is technically legal to do something does not make it the right thing to do. It was a low class move legal or not. I can see your point that a professional athlete takes any andvantage to win whether it is the high road or the low road. A proessional athlete that is on the elite or hall of fame level however does not take the low road - they are good enough that they don't need the low road route. Floyd is that good but still chose the low road - he is tarnished by that lack of class regardless of the legality of the action.

I see and understand your point as well. Looking at it from Floyd's point of view, he had been head butted 3 times that I saw and if there was a cheap shot in the bout it was the intentional butt at the end. Ortiz is a very good fighter but if he was a good boxer he would have been ready to box after touching gloves. Mayweather was ready and Ortiz said, "this was a learning experience". I agree that he will not make that kind of mistake again with ANY opponent. After all the training for this bout the entire Ortiz team should have been training him that Floyd is dangerous, sometimes even at the bell ending a round lol.

4 those who really don't really pay close attention people keep saying that Ortiz was frustrated not true Ortiz was tired of Floyd using the elbow but still not and excuse for him to headbutt but at the same time maybe Floyd took advantage cause remember Ortiz hurt Floyd twice taking to the ropes. As far as best fighter I don't think so u can say that the fighter now is Manny before Manny to me it was pernell Whitaker. Now Floyd let the commission do their job you are not the commission. The next best fighter should be Ward what a fighter.
