Floyd Mayweather

Goes Nuclear on Sportscaster After Fight

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?

Both fighters were wrong, but it's obvious that Ortiz got caught up in the moment and some "street" kicked in; lack of integrity? Maybe, or maybe just too young, too inexperienced to keep a level head in a frenzy. In any case, Ortiz realized it IMMEDIATELY, and showed is remorse. Mayweather's cheap shot was calculated and premeditated. FM is a much more experienced fighter, and should have kept his integrity and gotten his revenge well into the fight. Although it was legal, it WAS a CHEAP SHOT especially since hes was winning the fight. Sad commentary on an already controversial sport.

Yet another step backward for Boxing. With boxing losing fans to the UFC, this is not the way to win them back! PPV ripoff!

You can take Floyd out of the gutter but cant take the gutter out of him. This guy is a real big time loser and he may of won the fight "legally" but certainly not morally.
His true self shined through with the commentator - Ortiz is 1000 the man he is
Floyd get in your Rolls and drive off a cliff- you'll be doing the world a favor

Typical Floyd BS. He is the most hyped yet least entertaining boxers of all time. It would be great if he stopped dodging Manny. He knows he will get his ass kicked so he uses his typical Mayweather crap to avoid the fight. You suck ass, Floyd.
