NSAC executive director defends Cortez; says what Floyd did was legal.
Ortiz manager Rolando Arellano said he’d look at the tape before deciding whether to file a protest. But Keith Kizer, the executive director of the Nevada Athletic Commission, staunchly defended Cortez’s actions and Mayweather’s right to punch Ortiz when he did.
“Joe pointed to the timekeeper and said ‘Time in,’” Kizer said. “At that point, the fight is back on and they’re free to punch each other. Joe had them separated, but Victor went to hug him four separate times. But the referee said ‘Time in’ and Floyd Mayweather threw a perfectly legal punch. I have no idea why Victor kept trying to hug him or embrace him. I guess he was feeling guilty because of the head butt, but hey, you’re in a fight. Fight and then feel guilty later.”

Bull ****. Cortez never said TIME IN.
He looked at the time keepers and asked "Ya'll ready?"
Before he even looked back at the fighters, Floyd was punching Ortiz. Monumental **** up on Cortez's part by allowing them to come to the middle before he had started time. Keep them in their corners, ask the time keepers if they're ready, then start the fight.
Cortez completely lost control in the ring.

Its a conspiracy against Pacquiao, NSAC is on Floyd's payroll. We need to have unbiased athletic commissions.

It sure doesnt mean, Time in, Time out, break , etc.
Cortez is the CHITTIEST ref in the business, this is why we had 10 threads about him before the fight. He finds a way to screw up a fight.
How hard is it to:
Send Floyd to neutral corner
Take a point from Ortiz
Tell Time keeper "Time In"
and tell the fighters to fight while keeping your eyes on them?
