Definitely Cheap ... but Fair

Did Floyd Mayweather sucker punch Victor Ortiz? Yes. Was Ortiz stupid for not defending himself? Absolutely. Is it possible for Harvey "I'm a Lawyer" Levin to debate BOXING with sports guru Fred Roggin? Damn straight.

And, can dogs die from a broken heart? "Dog Whisperer" Cesar Millan calls in to explain why the concept isn't so far-fetched. Plus, restaurant horror stories that make Christina Milian's ABC gum incident look appetizing.

The real losers here are the fans..Boxing use to be a great sport to watch bc there were real champions that acted like professionals yes they hyped up the fight as part of the show but never to the degree where you act like a want to be thug..There needs to be a conduct code for boxing just like all the other sports so you don't pay to watch a fight with your kids and you get nothing but foul mouth lowlife talking **** on TV calling out Larry Merchant who is a pain in the ass commentator but where do you draw the line..you would not see that at any pro sports bc you would get fined or suspended..Its the boxing commission's fault for letting floyd get this far acting like a low life ni&%er..its time for change and get a act of conduct rules added to boxing..Ortiz messed up by fighting dirty but that doesn't open the door for floyd to act like how ever he wants..Floyd saw Ortiz didn't have his guard up and took advantage of that but a real champion would have not done that and that's why floyd will never be known for being a great champ and he could be making so much more money if he would get out of his ghetto act bc that's all it is a act..

if Mayweather is as great as he tells people he is, then he didn't have to resort to a cheap shot like that. Was it legal, yes. But common sportmanship sense, if two fighter are 'hugging' you don't hit on the break. Trust me, every real boxer out there are ALL saying that he is a cheap piece of crap for taking that shot. I don't know how he can live with himself, but he obviously finds a way. Then again, he cheap shots a guy, yells and curses at a 80 year old man on live tv, calls for him to be fired, arrested for domestic violence... somehow I doubt he has a hard time sleeping at night.

All yall cry babies becuz Maywether is super great. He retaliated on a sucka move that Ortiz did. Eye for an eye. Ortiz was clearly satisfied just to be in the presence after he clearly knew a win was impossible. He became a groupie

I didn't see the fight but they always say protect yourself at all times so Ortiz has no beef.After head butting Mayweather calling him dirty is lame.I'm not a Mayweather fan cause i can't enjoy any fighter who is so full of himself and can't wait till Pacman punches his ticket!

I will be the first to say i am not a Mayweather fan. But that fight last night was won fair and square. If anybody wants to talk about cheap shots, lets first start with the head but Ortiz gave to Mayweather. Thats what got Ortiz knocked out to begin with. Further more i also believe, in boxing, protect yourself at all times. Look, if you people out there want to make excuses for Ortiz then your watching the wrong sport. Ortiz got knocked out by Mayweather fair and square. Nothing at all cheap about the shot. But Ortiz will keep his guard up from here on out.

I have no idea why the ones the post here go on about how irrelevant the Solahi's are. They are fame whores no more or less than any so called celeb. All celebs lives are totally irrelevant to me; it's just entertaining to see them screw up. So those so called A listers or film/tv people are no more or less relevant than anyone else that becomes famous enough for TMZ to cover their story.

I just don't like when TMZ capitalizes on cases that involve children ie. Casey Anthony. Her kid dies somehow and she doesn't seem to care nor do her parents (re: swimming with dolphins photos etc..) and TMZ ultimately milked that forever. All of this at the behest of a dead child. Nancy Grace is just a news reporter and let's not forget that what put CNN was the OJ trial. Tragedy put CNN on the map. Does TMZ need that sort of scenario to bolster their presence and brand? I don't think so. Just stick to the entertainment. Most of the people TMZ covers most people have never even heard of so TMZ helps to give them the 15 minutes so they can in turn milk that. Cover stories that at least entertain not milk some human tragedy.

At the beginning, I was rooting for Mayweather. I agree that Ortiz needed to be hit, but when the ref cleared the fight so he knew he had to defend himself.All this BS about Always protecting yourself, get it straight. MW was not protecting himself from anything when he had been apologized to.Ortiz realized what he did. what ppl don't understand is that they have to get pissed to hit hard, look at MW, he has anger issues and has been arrested for those too. I am not saying Ortiz went about it correctly, but MW needs to stop saying he was protecting himself becuase there was nothing to protect himself at the time he made the punk punches. As far as going off on an old man, its the old man's job to interrogate and question. MW thinks the world is against him. PUHLEEZ, go see a psychiatrist w/some of that money dude!!
