R. Mayweather: My Brother Can't Help, Ortiz Ain't Sh*t!

By Chris Robinson

As reported earlier, on Wednesday afternoon I caught up with trainer Floyd Mayweather Sr. inside of Johnny Tocco’s Boxing Gym in Las Vegas, as he confirmed to me that he has been in discussions with Victor Ortiz and his team about training the former welterweight champion in the near future.

Ortiz is coming off of a disheartening loss to Josesito Lopez on June 23rd in which he suffered two fractures on the right side of his jaw before opting not to come out for the ninth round. One fight prior, Ortiz was seen getting knocked out in bizarre fashion in the fourth round of his bout with Mayweather’s son Floyd Jr. at the MGM Grand.

Shortly after speaking with Mayweather, I made a pit stop at the Mayweather Boxing Club and looked out for former two-division champion and current day trainer Roger Mayweather.

When informed of the news that his older brother would possibly be working with Ortiz, Roger seemed anything but interested.

“Who gives a f***?” Roger quipped. “Victor Ortiz ain't sh*t anyways. He got his *ss whooped. His *ss would still get knocked out by my nephew.”

As our conversation came to a close, it became clear that Roger wasn’t really taking any digs at his brother, more so he was simply highlighting his dismay towards Ortiz.

“My brother can train him all he wants to,” said Roger. “It’s the fighter that has to go in that ring. I don’t give a f*** what you teach him.”
