Floyd Mayweather Knocks Out Victor Ortiz, Lays Into Larry Merchant

by at . Comments

Floyd Mayweather may have knocked out Victor Ortiz last night, but he was apparently still itching for a fight afterward ... with sportscaster Larry Merchant.

During the post-fight interview, Floyd started absolutely screaming at HBO's 80-year-old ringside reporter, yelling, "You never give me a fair shake."

"HBO need to fire you," the fighter continued, all up in Merchant's grill. "You don't know $h!t about boxing. You ain't $h!t! You're not $h!t!" Yikes. See below.

Larry Merchant didn't back down, barely even flinching at the outburst and telling the champ: "I wish I was 50 years younger and I'd kick your a$$."

Damn, Mayweather. Who knew, you won by KO, but you still got served.

At least he didn't bring up Floyd's apparent history of wailing on women.

Despite a persons attitude whether they are in the ring or out of the ring. I was always taught to respect your elders no matter what but when you don't have no up bringing what are you to do. Even though Mayweather said what he said does that make Larry Merchant a better person saying what he said.....

In ten years where will this boxer be? Will he be broke? On drugs? Homeless? A true champion would simply smile an say "we touched gloves, and the fight was back on". Offer the rematch in a respectable way. Not with attitude. So far he is just proving to the public he is a woman beater, disrespectable to older people. He needs to learn how to roll off questions like a good punch. He can still win the public opinion.

Remember Floyd...your only purpose on Earth is to ENTERTAIN. There is no other reason why you're here...and all I can say is that when I pay for a PPV event, I want my money's worth. I don't want to pay for a show that lasts just a few minutes...I want my money's worth. Just like when you pay for a prositute...which is all you are, Money...
