Mayweather Vs. Ortiz Fight: Follow Up

I have heard sports analysts saying that Mayweather’s final blows against Ortiz are not illegal. They say that the referee have signaled that the fight continues so the fight at that point is live. It is not, therefore, Mayweather’s fault if Ortiz has not covered himself for the continuance of the fight.

Welterweight champion and pound for pound boxer, Congressman Manny Pacquiao sees it the same way. He says that referees always warn boxers to protect themselves at all times so he says that what Mayweather has done is not illegal as far as the rules of boxing is concerned. However, he says that given the same situation, he will NOT do the same. I cannot quote him verbatim but in essence he is saying that he believes in good sportsmanship and such act does not reflect good sportsmanship.

I guess, we can all put this controversy to rest and let the boxing fans decide whether Mayweather really deserve the belt or not.

  1. i only watch boxing if it's Pacman. i have seen the video of mayweather's fight and he really took advantage of that moment where his opponent was unaware of his punch.

  2. Hi Carina,
    Yeah, I dislike Mayweather's style but Pacman says it's not illegal... I don't know but I want to see them fight inside the ring. Maybe Pacman can teach Mayweather how to be humble...
