Floyd Mayweather's Dad

My Son Fought Fair ...100%

9/19/2011 1:15 PM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

Floyd Mayweather's famous dad is in his son's corner -- telling TMZ, there was nothing underhanded about Floyd's sucker punch victory on Saturday ... adding, "The fight was 100% fair."

Floyd Mayweather Sr. tells us, "First of all, Ortiz headbutted Floyd and that was obviously intentional. If you re-watch the fight, you can see that right after they apologize to one another, the ref OK's them to fight."

"Floyd did the right thing -- the number one thing they will tell you in fighting is to ALWAYS protect yourself ... The way Floyd ended the fight was 100% fair."

Tell that to angry mobs everywhere.

Mayweather sucker punched him fair and square. All boxers should do that from now on. As soon as the referee breaks them apart, they should sucker punch each other. This will make for shorter bouts and save us a lot of time.

Floyd Mayweather sucker punched the guy. I understand you are in a ring and the ref was not paying attention; but come on, the guy's hands were down by his side.. be a man Mayweather. I have never been that big of a fan of his(Mayweather)anyways - he showboats his money; he is ****y and arrogant. Whats that old saying "A fool and is money are soon parted".

All I can say is that this type of black men give a bad name to all those who are educated and have manners. Who knows maybe maywether himself is taking some sort of drugs, he is just scared of Manny and just keeps fighting the weak. I think he is just waiting for Manny to get older and weaker so he can take advantage and probably win.

Money took Victor to school.

Victor was in way over his head.

Victor lost his mind and head butted. Then he lost his mind and dropped his hands and allowed Money to give him the old sucker punch one two.
