DiBella: Floyd Mayweather Will Dominate Pacquiao Easy

By David "Los Gatos" Rosenberg

Promoter Lou DiBella doesn’t think Floyd Mayweather Jr. was at fault for landing a vicious two-punch combination while Victor Ortiz was distracted, with his hands at his side, to score a knockout last Saturday night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

“If anyone did anything wrong, it was the disgusting cheating that Ortiz did in that round,” DiBella said. “There were around 10 unanswered blows to the back of Mayweather’s head that were intentional. I don’t know how [referee Joe] Cortez didn’t see those because after the fight, Mayweather had a giant lump in the back of his head. It was one of the most flagrant head butts ever."

DiBella also took issue with Ortiz's conduct after he butted Mayweather and was deducted a point for the foul.

"He apologized 17 times," DiBella said or Ortiz. "The referee clearly says, ‘Time in,’ and then he walks over like an idiot again with his hands down. If I was Floyd I would have hurt him worse.”

DiBella wasn’t finished on the topic, using an example from a different sport to show that Mayweather was right to throw punches at that moment.

“If Eli Manning gets distracted and looks into the crowd, is the guy wrong for sacking him from the other side?” DiBella asked. “It’s one of the stupidest arguments I’ve ever heard. Sucker punch- my ass! Protect yourself at all times. The referee said, ‘Time in."

On the topic of Mayweather and a potential fight with Manny Pacquiao, DiBella was impressed enough with Mayweather to call it a mismatch.

“It’s not even a fight. Not even a fight,” he said. “Pacquiao won’t hit him in the ass. And look at Pacquiao’s face after the [Joshua] Clottey fight where he won every single second of every round. Look at his face after his recent fights, and frankly, he’s not been jumping up higher in the level of competition than Floyd’s been fighting. I think Floyd picks him apart. I’m not taking anything away from Pacquiao’s greatness. But Arum said, ‘Pacquiao wins and it’s a joke.’ I’m going the other way. Mayweather wins and I’ll book Bob’s bet.”

Too bad Mayweather is not as confident in victory as most here are.

[QUOTE=big_james10;11218608]I disagree with you on the highlighted part. I think, in a Pacquaio fight, Mayweather will not be the aggressor like he did with Ortiz. He will go back to his counterpunching style. Pac is always aggressive and always comes…

I felt that Mayweather has a good chance to beat Pac, but the way he fought Ortiz, if it was Pac, I definitely feel he would have less of a chance. Ortiz did connect with Mayweather, but more importantly, Pac…
