How Bout when 50 is wearing gloves and SR is showing him how fast he still is

Ok, so, somebody help me here...

After an infraction, and where the ref is still docking the point, shouldn't the fighters be told to go to a neutral corner and be commanded to resume boxing by saying "box" or "fight"? That's why there's a ref correct?

I believe if Ortiz wants to contest this, he could get it ruled as a no contest.

3 things I learned from this fight:

1. Joe Cortez is a horrible ref.
2. "Money" Mayweather is cheap?! (I'm a little confused with the irony of that statement )
3. Victor Ortiz is an idiot.
BONUS: Larry Merchant vs. Floyd Mayweather is coming soon! That was AWESOME!!!
BONUS 2: Protect Yourself At All Times, lol

Victor was the one who threw a cheap headbutt which clearly seemed intentional, and regardless of that is illegal.

When they met in the center of the ring they touched gloves and Floyd put his hands up. That should have told Ortiz right there that it was time to fight, not time to try hugging him a second time after splitting his lip with an intentional headbutt. I think that ending was probably what we would have seen had it made it to the later rounds. Victor was pressing the action at times, but he isn't on Floyd's level and we were clearly watching that unfold.

I'm upset with how it ended as I feel it was a cheap shot on Floyd's part, but Ortiz was an idiot, especially after the wimpy hook landed, he should have been ready to fight. He had more than enough time to get away from that right cross.

The double irony was that Ortiz DEFINITELY started the cheap shots and they were the ones complaining to the ref about Floyd's elbows, lol

Oh, and Miss Foxy said "Tell him [J.B.] I said I wuv him!!"

It's clear to see why people are gonna say that was cheap or dirty but I just don't really feel that strongly about it. I feel like the headbutt was probably an act of frustration by Ortiz because he wasn't able to really do anything to Floyd when he tried to get in close and flurry on Mayweather, and in a way it pretty much cancels it out. Essentially, Ortiz defeated himself probably way before the fight ever started. Maybe he bought into his own hype a little bit and thought it was going to be easier than it was. Once he realized how tough Floyd was he lost his cool and threw the headbutt, then stood there with his hands down against the craftiest fighter in the game. In a way, it's almost like he asked for it, but I don't think anybody would have guessed it would have been a brutal KO.

You can clearly see Cortez calling time in when Ortiz went for the second hug.

Like Floyd told Larry F'ing haters are gonna hate no matter what!!!
