The debate whether it was a fair shot that Floyd Mayweather, Jr. took against Victor Ortiz continued right after the game ended. During the post-crowning interview, Mayweather, Jr. exchanged crude words with HBO Sports commentator Larry Merchant.

Mayweather, Jr. was still hugging the 80-year-old presenter when he was confronted with the fact that some people thought his two blows to Ortiz were unfair. Mayweather, Jr. responded defensively that a boxer should protect himself all the time and that he won squarely. The audience booed every time the boxer said anything.

A replay of the knockout was played and Merchant asked the boxer to describe it. Mayweather, Jr. reminded people about the dirty play Ortiz did earlier and said, "I was victorious, if you want a re-match then let's re-match." But Merchant refused to lay down the subject, saying he was an aggressive player during the game.

Mayweather, Jr. then yelled at Merchant, "You never give me a fair shake. HBO need to fire you. You don't know s**t about boxing. You ain't s**t! You're not s**t!" Merchant replied, "I wish I was 50 years younger, and I'd kick your a**." The presenter the smiled as they were separated.

You have to be kidding me. The ref wasn't even looking. The ref hadn't called fight yet and FM hit Ortiz. It's the ref that needs to be sacked and a rematch needs to be done. Take the belt off FM, he doesn't deserve to be the champion.

Everybody needs to give Mayweather credit . Both boxers were told always protect yourself. Ortiz took the cheap shot not Mayweather . Ortiz got what he deserved .

It is amazing how people who did not even watch the fight have taken on the crusade against FM's victory. I mean Ortiz should be banned from boxing for literally ramming an opponent, by lounging at him with his head. People who didnt watch the fight are under the impression that FM hit Ortiz while he was apologizing but that was not the case. The hit came after they had hugged and clearly separated. As for Larry Merchant, the old fool needs to retire. He only talks good of white and white-like boxers. He is rude to black boxers all the time. I remember he used to be the same with Roy Jones Jnr. Now he kisses the Klichko brothers behind like a retard.
