Boxing fans and critics have spent the past 30 hours or so debating the controversial outcome of Saturday night’s WBC welterweight title match, after Floyd Mayweather knocked out defending champ Victor Ortiz in the 4th round. For those of you who missed it, Ortiz had just finished apologizing for a headbutt that he delivered to Mayweather in the previous round, and he even punctuated his apology with a kiss on Mayweather’s cheek. And then Mayweather knocked him the f*ck out.
Ortiz complained after the fight that he was still addressing the ref when Mayweather landed his two-punch sleeping pill, and some people have called Mayweather’s attack cheap and dirty. And while I’m not quoting Mayweather verbatim, I believe his response was something like, “Sorry for partying.”
