Victor came out swinging on TMZ Live today -- lambasting Floyd for for his unsportsmanlike knockout ... claiming, "If he's really as great as he thinks he is, take a step back. We can settle it as professional athletes."

Don't buy any of Floyd Mayweather fights. He paid off the Ref. If floyd knew he could beat ortiz then why the sucker punch? Angry about the headbutt, I agree but have to act like a champ and act professional. Boxing is a brutal sport but you are a professional boxer meaning act professional especially if you are a champion.

A few days before the match, I told my husband..." I bet you anything, that Ortiz will get knocked out within the 3-5 round". You wanna know why I believed that? Because I think Mayweather paid him to!!! Mayweather has the money to do it!! Okay, I thought about the title belt(s) Ortiz would lose. Keep in mind, people do a lot less for money, 2 million at that. When I was 16, I flipped burgers for $4.25. You telling me you wouldn't get knocked out by Mayweather for 2 mill, I would!!! You'd have to look like a bitch though. Plus, that lil head-butt thing made it look like he wasn't that big of a bitch to Mayweather and the world. I bet they were saying "do you think we can get people to pay $60... twice??" Hell yea, they can...and they will!! Just you wait!! :D

Ortiz was not ready for the big stage. His comments are that of a immature young fighter. He can't even admit that the headbutt was intentional. Mayweather is not as good as he thinks? He needs to switch that statement around. By round 9 his eye would have looked like it did during the Maidana fight. In four short rounds he was getting totally outclassed. He is not a smart fighter at all. He lost his cool, got away from whatever his game plan was and became frustrated in four round because he was not getting to Mayweather , thus the headbutt. He talked a good game but talk don't win fights, skills do. He doesn't deserve a rematch, what he needs is a pacifier so he can stop whining!!!

Mayweather deserves that belt more than Ortiz. Ortiz has integrity issues! That was an obvious headbutt and he says it was an accident. Yeah Right!!! And what is up with being over apologetic? Your in the ring to fight so quit hugging and kissing. Same thing happened to Mosley when he kept wanting to touch gloves; he got punched in the face...

time for him to go back to KC. He's a sucker who head-butted and got sucker punched. And he was doing it in all of the rounds. Only because fans don't like Mayweather that your letting him speak

I've listened to the rights and wrongs of this fight. What we are forgetting this fight was not about mistakes or intentional fouls. What most of us brought the fight for was we wanted to see a good professional fight. Ortiz was foolish and unprofessional-But, Maywheather was the disappointment Maywheather had the fight in the bag-sometimes its important to think about your fans, pride and profession-that's the level that Floyd would like his fans to believe he has developed to. But, I did not see that on September 17th either way I felt cheated, so if that's the best Floyd had to give, than not only am I disappointed I'm tired he may have talent, money and fame. But, he has no respect for the sport or himself. Ortiz is a fool and needs to check himself! to me there were no winners in this fight just two losers and a disappointed fan base.

tell it like it is victor, and i coudn't agree with you more. mayweather, and in his own words, would leave the ring with class....this utterance delivered after he choked you at the weigh in showed what a bum he is...firstly with the cheap shot on you and then the below the belt stuff with larry merchant....no class mayweaether and a guy i once liked and hoped to beat pacquiao i'd just like to see destroyed by you in the rematch the WBC should enforce...if they had the two rounded objects in place they would...well done victor
