R. Mayweather: Motherf**ker Ortiz Didn't Want To Fight

By Chris Robinson

MGM Grand, Las Vegas - Outspoken trainer Roger Mayweather was a star in his own right, as he was mobbed endlessly by fans as he walked through the venue. Following the post-fight press conference for his nephew Floyd Mayweather and Victor Ortiz's welterweight title scuffle. Floyd defeated Ortiz via a bizarre knockout inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena.

During the chaos, Roger still had time to offer up a few quotes on the fight and was quick to point out that he saw Ortiz’s collapse coming well ahead of time.

“I knew it was going to happen. I knew that from the get-go. I wasn’t worried about that. I told him ‘keep walking to him, keep walking to him’. That mother****** didn’t want to fight,” Roger said of Ortiz, who was unexpectedly caught by a left-right combination from Mayweather that ended the fight in the fourth round.

As for Floyd’s future, Roger seems very much uncertain, but pointed out that WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao is unlikely to be next in line.

“I don’t know. I know he aint going to fight Pacquiao,” said Roger. “So, I don’t know who he’s going to fight but I’m sure somebody will fight Floyd. He fought all the biggest names in the sport of boxing.”

Mayweather still seems to have a lot of life left at 34 years of age and Roger doesn’t see him calling it a day anytime soon.

“My nephew? He could fight another couple of years.”

If Mayweather can take two easy fights and make as much if not more than one fight with Pacquiao, he would rather choose the latter without risking a loss.
