Victor Ortiz: Mayweather Elbowed Me, So I Fired Back

Welterweight contender Victor Ortiz is claiming that referee Joe Cortez did nothing to prevent Floyd Mayweather Jr. from using his elbows in last Saturday's fight at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Ortiz claims the elbows by Mayweather, and Cortez not issuing any warnings, led to his intentional headbutt in the fourth round. Ortiz lost a point and gave Mayweather a hug to apologize. As he was moving away from the hug, with his hands down, Mayweather landed two punches which knocked Ortiz out. Ortiz is claiming Cortez never advised him to resume fighting. 

"I did the headbutt, but only because I told Cortez, twice, that [Mayweather] used the elbow on my eyebrow, my right eyebrow. I told him 'Cortez, Cortez, elbow, elbow' and he said 'fight out of it' and Mayweather was smiling at me and I said 'alright, boom.' But after that I apologized and lost a point," Ortiz told Marcus Chekhanovskiy.

This kat lying. I never saw Floyd throw an elbow. He was out of his element and got exposed. Floyd was on his way to a win regardless. I will not want to see this fight again. Victor should move on to Khan or Maidana or a rematch with Berto

[QUOTE=Big Dunn]Odd, but I'm reminded of another fighter who employs the multiple reasons strategy. Funny thing is while this guy is called on it the other guy isn't. Name rhymes with Danny Dackman Sacquio.[/QUOTE] :lol1: LMAO :lol1:

[QUOTE=BoxingGenius27]We're not even going to count the laundry list of headbutt's Ortiz was warned for prior to committing the major foul in round 4. Let's list Ortiz's rebuttal for the blatant headbutt: 1. Mayweather was coming in to fast; therefore, Mayweather caused the clash of heads. It ...

[QUOTE=Sugar Q]Nobody gives a flying fvck about the opinions of you and other emotionally disturbed Pactards. EVERY MAJOR FIGHTER IN BOXING SAW THAT FIGHT AND SIDES WITH FLOYD besides Manny's punk ass and other Top Prank flunkies of course. It's funny cause he's also the only one that refuses OST...
