BoxingScene.com was advised by Victor Ortiz's manager, Rolando Arellano, that they will not file an appeal over Saturday's knockout loss to Floyd Mayweather Jr.  Ortiz was knocked out after apologizing to Mayweather, for a second time, for what appeared to be a deliberate head butt a moment ealier.  After touching gloves, Floyd landed a left hand and followed up with a right hand that floored the former WBC welterweight champion. Ortiz had his hands by his side when Mayweather caught him.
 
At the post-fight press conference at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Arellano said that he would review the tape to see if he had a case to appeal the knockout loss.  After reviewing the tape, Arellano deemed the hit legal. 

"I was very motivated to file a fucking appeal.  I really wanted to f*cking file one but after reviewing the tape I decided not to. There was two seconds left on the clock when Cortez said to box."

While he said the hit didn't break any rules, the always quotable Arrellano said that Mayweather's punch broke the rules of sportsmanship. 

"While it was legal that doesn't change the fact that it was a f*cking sucker punch.  Victor apologized for the headbutt and in good sportsmanship he apologized again.  He wanted to let Floyd know he was sorry and that is when he was hit with the sucker punch  The punch was legal so there is nothing we can do about changing this fight but we do want a rematch," said Arellano.

A rematch? GTFO of here. Nobody would buy that ****. It would need to be on free HBO. Everyone I know that bought it felt like they got robbed. No one will pay for another Mayweather fight against someone not named Pacquiao.

[QUOTE=TheGoldenChamp]If floyd has any ounce of dignity, he would honor the rematch. Be a man of your word. From a business stand point, it makes sense. Another 40 mil for floyd with a non pac name. Could make 80 mil in less than a year. I really believe a rematch will sell.[/QUOTE] They ...
