Mayweather Fires Back: Shreds Ortiz and De La Hoya

By Chris LaBate

Things are heating up in Las Vegas. WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather Jr. has fired back at the recent allegations being made by Victor Ortiz. Last Saturday night in Las Vegas, Ortiz struck Mayweather with an intentional headbutt in the fourth round. He was penalized a point by referee Joe Cortez. To apologize, Ortiz came over to Mayweather and gave him a hug. As Ortiz pulled back from that hug, Mayweather blasted him with two punches and put him down for the count.

According to Ortiz, the referee never issued a verbal order to resume fighting, and because of that Ortiz was off-guard and had his hands by his side. He blasted Mayweather in several interviews, claiming Mayweather won with a "cheap shot" and he demanded a rematch. 

Mayweather, pretty much silent since the controversial fight, finally opened up and let his verbal words go. He even promised to give Ortiz a rematch, if the boxer is able to beat Andre Berto in a rematch. Ortiz won a twelve round decision over Berto in April. Mayweather posted a photo of Ortiz attempting to get up in the controversial fouth round, and wrote - "I've fallen and I can't get up." He also took aim at Ortiz's promoter, Golden Boy President Oscar De La Hoya.

"I'll give Ortiz a rematch but first he got to get past Andre Berto. The only man who can beat me is the man in the mirror. Victoria Ortiz's new nickname is 'take two of these and call me in the morning.' Victoria Ortiz thought it was a head-butting contest. But that two-piece gave him some [incentive to] act right," Mayweather fired off.

"Does Victoria Ortiz want another rematch because he thinks he can win or does he want another payday? Ortiz's idol is Oscar De La Hoya aka Golden Girl....fishnet....black pantyhose [and Mayweather posted one of De La Hoya's infamous 2007 photos, where the boxer dressed up in women's clothing]."

[QUOTE=Steroidgio;11215726]Not.....sure I'd be claiming that one but hey, now that Floyd has used it, expect it to be all over the forum for the next few weeks. Previous examples of such stellar, scintillating wordplay spoken by the Great One that…

Here's the deal, Floyd was beginning to feel this kid had no respect for him, was beginning to turn it up a notch and make it dirty pushing Floyd around; going to make it a streetfight. Floyd wanted no partof…
