After Floyd Mayweather flattened Victor Ortiz in “controversial” fashion the boxing world is still buzzing. Many boxing enthusiasts and former fighters have chimed in and sounded off on whether or not they felt Mayweather was wrong or right for hitting a seemingly defenseless Ortiz.
Having personally seen the video a few dozen times I will not join the fray by throwing in my two cents.
Instead I’m going to share what former Junior Welterweight champion Paulie Malignaggi said regarding the end of the fight. “That was three intentional head butts I counted.” “You can’t take the fight to the streets and then say oh, I want to hug you now because you’re mad.” “You take it to a dirty place and turn it into a street fight, you better keep it there,” Malignaggi said.
Regardless of how you feel about the end of the fight it was undoubtedly an extremely bizarre event.
Where does it rank with some of the other crazy fights in boxing history?
