Press Conference for the upcoming fight

Floyd talks about Pacquaio and he sounds more interested than ever!!

You can see he gets upset when Ortiz mentions that this fight will be a flash back of Julio Cesar Chavez beating Roger Mayweather.

Cant wait for this fight!!!!
LOL, thanks for the link. I'll have to check it out later.

This is a tough fight to call for me, to be quite honest.

Javi, I know u asked me what I thought of the fight, and I honestly don't know right now. Mayweather has had another giant layoff, but this time he's fighting a young southpaw with a LOT to prove. Honestly, I feel like Floyd should be able to easily out-point Ortiz, but I worry about age, ring-rust, and I also worry about Floyd's attitude lately.

I know it's hard for some people to understand, but cockiness comes with success. I have always adored Floyd's ability to be cocky in his success, while still being realistic. I do worry about his attitude lately because of the outside problems he has been having. He seems like a different Floyd, and that concerns me when it comes to his chances.

I get tired of the articles written about this fight saying that Ortiz hasn't got a chance in this fight. Floyd's last few fights have been easy to call but I agree with you on this one J.B., this is a challenge for Floyd and I'm happy to see he's chosen Ortiz for his next challenge. I honestly feel he chose Ortiz because Ortiz' style is the closest he can find to Pacquiao's style in that weight class. Nonetheless, this is a fight I'm dying to see!

I agree with you JB! Floyd has everything to lose and Ortiz has nothing to Lose. This is a tuff fight but in the end I still see Floyd with a Decision.

But we all know southpaws are his (Kryptonite) if you can even call it that.

Press conference #2. Haven't watched it fully, but apparently Victor Ortiz is getting really upset at Mayweather for talking about Pacquiao at these pressers.

LOL, yeah, that part was funny!

I'm excited for this one too. I laugh every time I read an article about this fight being easy for Floyd. I believe Floyd will win, but he's going to have a rough time in this one IMO. Ortiz may be able to change the "Pretty Boy" for a little while.

Best part of that 24/7 was Floyd leaning over 50 Cent's shoulder talking about how they are totally BFF while Fidy blew on his hot ravioli...,,,,

I like Victor, but I still got my money on Mayweather
