I literally wanted to come on this blog and just demolish Floyd Mayweather . . . I didn't watch the fight live because I'm married and that oftentimes gets in the way of fun, but I was keeping up with it on my iPhone and I was ready to grab my torch and pitchfork when I was reading the reaction. Then I watched it. And watched it. And rewatched it. Again.
Victor Ortiz threw a uncalled-for, despicable headbutt for no reason. He was right in this fight, making Floyd work and starting to impose his size on Floyd from the stuff I found online. It was going to be a hellacious fight. Then I thought of something . . . Marcos Maidana.
Victor Ortiz is a front-running fighter who doesn't seem to enjoy being pushed. Maidana withstood everything and Ortiz's mentally crumbled. He faced some tough situations against Andre Berto earlier this year, but it was Berto who blinked first. I think Ortiz, for whatever reason, panicked and had somehow convinced himself he couldn't be Floyd. Why not take a cheap shot early, get a point deducted, but perhaps the lasting damage would help him win? Or maybe the just snapped, maybe Floyd said something? But Floyd always has something to say. I find it weird that we are talking about Floyd and his lack of sportsmanship, but Ortiz . . . he went Bam Bam Bigelow on Floyd!
Then I looked at the KO. Floyd accepted the hug and stepped back and Ortiz . . . he did nothing, he just stood their. You are in there with the very best fighter in the world, why on earth aren't you going in for the kill?
Victor Ortiz's once again mentally fell apart.
