By Ryan Burton

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - The final press conference for Saturday's mega-fight between Floyd Mayweather and Victor Ortiz was pretty low key until Ortiz's trainer, Danny Garcia, took the dais. Garcia thanked Mayweather for giving Ortiz the opportunity to fight and also praised him as a great fighter. He did however question the 6 time champion's tactics and called him a dirty fighter.

"I want you to fight a clean fight. That is all that I ask," said Garcia. "You hold your elbows up and you throw your elbows. We want a clean fight," continued Garcia.

Mayweather shrugged off Garcia's comments and said that there is no such thing as a clean fight.

"We are in the ring hitting each other. It is a fight. There is no such thing as a clean fight, retorted Mayweather.

Floyd went on to point to his record as proof that he is doing something right when it comes to the way he fights and spun the question back at Team Ortiz.

"I am 41-0 aren't I? If you don't want a dirty fight then when I hit Victor and hurt him then I don't want him holding," said Mayweather.

[QUOTE=djtmal]i've seen fmj use his forearm to get leverage on fighters on the inside, but is he actually throwing forearms or headbutting all night? can't say that... looks like the ortiz camp is going to get a taste of what big league boxing on the highest level is all about...winning[/QUOT...

This fight may turn into one of the dirtiest fights in history, least thats only if ortiz retaliates and that i hope he does.

[QUOTE=P4P_No1]LOL @ people getting mad @ Floyd for using dirty tactics. If the referee doesn't pull you up on it or deduct points then by all means continue. You do what you have to do to get the W; anyone of us here would do the same if we were fighters & don't try & BS and claim you wouldn't.[...
