Floyd Mayweather

Goes Nuclear on Sportscaster After Fight

9/18/2011 7:00 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Floyd Mayweather Jr. was still jonesing for a fight after his controversial knockout of Victor Ortiz last night, so he started one ... with an 80-year-old sportscaster!

During the post-fight interview, Floyd started screaming at HBO's Larry Merchant, getting up in his face and yelling, "You never give me a fair shake. HBO need to fire you. You don't know s**t about boxing. You ain't s**t! You're not s**t!"

But Merchant didn't back down, getting in the final words when he said, "I wish I was 50 years younger and I'd kick your a**."

Frisky old guy, ain't he?

Who gives a crap. Larry Merchant has always been an annoying ass. Mayweather is a a piece of crap thug. Boxing as a sport is crooked as hell. MMA rules.

Look at the results of the survey all you dumbasses who think what MW did was fair.. I guarantee you are all as classless as he is. His own team was telling him to STF up when he was going off on the announcer/reporter. Manny needs to kick his ass.. Someone needs to shut him up.

all you stupid ppl posting Racist comments "Rickster" need to get a life. You are the one making these posts racial by your ignorant comments. These two fighters were minorities so to see either win is a victory in itself to me! I was actually rooting for MW, but now that I see how classless he is, I hope he looses everything as fast as he gained it. This has nothing to do with him being a black champ and people hating him for it. This has everything to do with him admitting himself that they both did wrong.. He was not protecting himself from anyone or anything because ref had not cleared to fight, Ortiz had apologized. You can't tell me that this is what Ortiz gets. How many ppl in our country make mistakes and are forgiven for them.. ALL THE TIME, the ring is no exception. You are as ignorant as he is, and I guarantee you are also black. YOu are stupid for thinking everything is about race. There is so much more to this than that.. WE are in the new century stupid!

The first rule in fighting in the street an in the ring is don't let your guard down. Looks like Mayweather taught Ortiz a lesson he won't forget. As far as the new caster he was out of the box. You never start an interview with the winner by pointing out what "he" thinks the fighter did wrong. He should have started off with what he thought about Ortiz's headbutting him.

If you fighting you better be on your P's and Q's at all time and don't let your guard down. Ortiz let'em down so he got what he got. It's a wrap. Floyd you still the man, brush them suckas off Floyd... Ortiz did a dirty move and since he want to play dirty then Floyd just showed his punk a**

If he was 50 years younger he would have gotten his ass kick, LOL! Ref got them to break, got out the way, they tap gloves-fight on! "I wasn't ready!?" I haven't heard anything that lame since dude cried "No Mas" cause he ate too much steak before his fight with Suger Ray Leonard.

Larry Merchant is the worst. He should have been over. If he was fifty years younger he would have been knocked out in the first round. He had nothing negative to say about the dirty head butt, and they did touch gloves so its time to fight. All knockouts occur when the fighter makes a mistake in his defense. Put your hands down in a fight and you get knocked out...simple
