Re: The Official Boxing Thread
IN my view, MOney comes first for floyd, legacy comes second, and hey i cant blame him. The fact is, he makes nearly as much money fighting ortiz as he does fighting Pacman. There are number of reasons that fight wont happen, but for me, the main reason is Bob Arum, him and Mayweather have serious issues. Never mind the blood testing, for me that is the major stumbling block.
Regarding last night, Floyd was brilliant, he took apart the 3rd best welterweight in the world with ease. It was a much more dangerous fight than pacmans next fight ( gotta love JMM though, legend).
I see what you guys are saying, two wrongs dont make a right. Personally, i would have done the same thing if someone butted me. If the shoes were on the other foot im sure Mayweather would be slated for the headbutt. After the fight, ortiz almost seemed to accept that he was in the wrong.
Hopefully Floyd stays active like he said he hopes to do, and we will see him again in May, against Pacman i hope so he can finally show people that he is the man! ( I do like Pacman also, but i make Floyd the favorite in this fight). As for ortiz i think he will rematch Berto early next year.
