Mayweather’s decision to mercilessly punish Ortiz’s lack of awareness was questionable from a sportsmanship stand point but well within the rules. Ortiz, who had struggled to cope with Mayweather speed and accuracy up until that point, could easily have been disqualified for his blatant attempt to head-butt in the exchange before the end of the fight. At the restart he went to Mayweather for an apologetic embrace which Mayweather seemed to be accepting. Both fighters touched gloves but with the referee then looking at the timekeeper and Ortiz seemingly looking at the referee, Mayweather decided to unleash a left-hook on Ortiz that stunned his opponent before following it with a brutal right that sent Ortiz to the canvas. The drama did not stop there either as Mayweather was involved in a heated exchange with HBO presenter Larry Merchant during his post-fight interview in the ring. Mayweather, unhappy with the line of questioning from the veteran presenter said to Merchant “you don’t know sh*t about boxing” to which Merchant replied: “If I was 50 yrs younger I’d kick your ass”
