R. Mayweather Crashes Ortiz Hearing: Missed His Shot

By Rick Reeno

Las Vegas, Nevada - Members of the Nevada State Athletic Commission were surprised to see a special guest appear on Wednesday afternoon at the Grant Sawyer State Office Building. Trainer Roger Mayweather made an unexpected appearance. The uncle and trainer of Floyd Mayweather Jr. was looking to attend the hearing of Victor Ortiz, who was scheduled to appear before the commission to explain his comments in a recent video interview.

Ortiz (29-3-2, 22KOs), who is scheduled to fight Andre Berto (28-1, 22KOs) in a Showtime televised welterweight rematch on February 11 at the MGM Grand, appeared before the commission to secure a boxing license in the state of Nevada.

Ortiz was ordered to appear before the Nevada Commission to explain his comments in a video interview, where the boxer claimed that he was trying to "break the nose" of Floyd Mayweather Jr. with an intentional head butt during last September's fight at the MGM Grand. Ortiz said the head butt was a reaction to Mayweather's throwing of illegal elbows.

Roger Mayweather arrived to the hearing with a set goal of persuading the commission to deny Ortiz's application for a boxing license.

There was only one problem; Roger arrived well after Ortiz's hearing had finished - and the commission had already issued Ortiz a "one fight" conditional license to move forward with the Berto rematch.

When I advised Roger that Ortiz was already approved, and the hearing had concluded some time ago, the outspoken trainer told BoxingScene.com. - "What, they didn't ban that motherf**ker? I can't believe they didn't ban his ass."

A disappointed Roger left the building shortly thereafter.
