Floyd Mayweather

Goes Nuclear on Sportscaster After Fight

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


091811_floyd_video
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?

Love you Mayweather!!! Ortiz is the dirty fighter, and Mr. Announcer is an idiot who wouldn't let it go during the interview and then kissed Ortiz's ass. Props to Mayweather for telling it like it is-- he doesn't know @#$% about boxing and Protect yourself at all times.

Mayweather don't have to do nothing but stay black and die

Whoever he fights you will be watching,paying and talking,

What you don't realize is that rich blacks don't care about you have to say - they are playing your game that has long been exposed - just sick of your sht (Larry Merchant etc)

If Mayweather was classless he would have deck the old fart- for talking trash

You want to talk about classless how about Donald Trump, Brad Pitt, Arnold Swas-ass-negga this list can go on and on; Go chew on their arse - Naw - they are not black -

What you are saying we just don't care,your ruling days are just a matter of time -

not a Mayweather fan at all, but Larry Merchant has been an idiot for years. I couldn't agree more with Mayweather's comments that Merchant needs to go. He's always classless in his interviews and takes 20 minutes to get out a 4 word question. I actually think he died a few years ago and someone forgot to tell him.

It was not a cheap shot, that reporter was a jackass. He had it out for Mayweather from the beginning of the interview. It was wrong for Mayweather to flip out on the old man but fair is fair. Ortiz wasn't actually sorry for head butting Mayweather, if he was it wouldn't have looked to intentional. Mayweather may have been a little quick to pull the trigger this time but he would have won regardless.

Way to stay classly Mayweather and pick a fight with an old man interviewing you. Now, quit being a wimp and fight Pacquiao.

This is how crazy these people are -

Larry "if I was 50 years younger I would kick your arse"

Is he serious - I bet he has never fought anything

Mayweather is right he does not know sh-t - all talk; well Larry got peed on last night big time- I laugh my head off- that was the best moment of the fight program -

This will go down in history - good job Floyd

I just cannot stop laughing

Mayweather is a ***** because he fights boxers that he knows he can beat and anyone can knockout a person who has their guard down thats being a coward from his part and when it comes to fighting paquiao he makes all kinds of excuses because his scared of paquiao his name should be gayweather
