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?

It doesn't mean that you're undefeated means you're the best. We can improve after we have lost and learn from that experience.

The old man was rude and stupid for calling mayweather out. I thought it was a cheap shot by the stupid ass old piece of **** sports broadcaster. I would have knocked him out too and let him and ortiz talk about how they both got there asses kicked. LMFAO **** THAT OLD PIECE OF ****

With all the knowledge and genuine appreciation for the grief and guts a prize fighter goes through, Larry Merchant is the Heavy Weight Champion of the World! Mayweather could have had the grace to say, if I had it to do over I wouldn't have hit him the second time, but if there's enough interest in seeing a better fight perhaps we should schedule a rematch.
