    I don't think there's any way this goes past 5 rounds.

    Mayweather wearing some inexplicably hideous trunks.

    End of the third, looks like Mayweather's starting to take over.

    In retrospect, attempting to hug Mayweather was probably not the right move for Ortiz.

    At least not 287 times, no. Ortiz was basically blowing Mayweather. And he paid for it. Big.

    To those who watched: Was it a cheap shot?

    Sure looked like a cheap shot to me. I wouldn't be surprised if it was fixed. Ortiz sure didn't complain much about the sucker punches after the fight. I sure wish Larry Merchant was 50 years younger to shut Mayweather's mouth.

    Glad I found a free stream of this fight on the web so I didn't have to pay for this sham.

    It was pretty cheap. The fight resumed, Ortiz went in to hug Mayweather -- after already hugging him during the timeout -- and as Ortiz stepped back, Mayweather hit him with a left, then clocked him with a straight right. The fight had resumed so it was legal, but he was clearly taking advantage of the fact that Ortiz had his hands down after embracing him.

    It was a very deliberate head-butt from Ortiz that led to the whole thing.

    The crowd really turned on Mayweather after the fight, during his interview with Merchant. He came out of it looking like a punk.

    And another black eye for boxing.

    A very stupid mistake by Ortiz. Protect yourself at all times.

    And would it kill Mayweather to answer a fucking question?
