According to a report in The Philippine Star, WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao saw nothing illegal with the two-punch combination that Floyd Mayweather Jr. landed on Victor Ortiz in the fourth round of their fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. After Ortiz fouled Mayweather with a headbutt, he touched gloves and hugged the fight, but was he moved away from the hug - Mayweather landed two punches that knocked Ortiz out.

“Very poor sportsmanship,” said Pacquiao. [But] it was not illegal.

Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach, called it a cheap shot. He felt referee Joe Crotez lost control of the contest.

“Yeah [it was a cheap shot]. The referee was still talking to someone at ringside. And I didn’t see him said ‘box’ like they always do. I think he lost control,” said Roach.

Its not a choice to win like that the ref clearly came between them clapped and restarted the fight. Mayweather did what he always does and that is be first. Not his fault Ortiz could'nt take ět.
