Some people may think that Floyd Mayweather Jr. played dirty to knock out Victor Ortiz in the ring this past weekend, but Mr. Floyd Mayweather Sr. is not one of them.
Sticking up for his son, the retired boxer and trainer told sources, "The fight was 100% fair."
He maintains that if anyone fought dirty, it was Ortiz, explaining:
"First of all, Ortiz headbutted Floyd and that was obviously intentional. If you re-watch the fight, you can see that right after they apologize to one another, the ref OK's them to fight."
Furthermore, the proud papa believes "Money" protected himself, while Ortiz left himself open for the knockout punch, continuing:
"Floyd did the right thing — the number one thing they will tell you in fighting is to ALWAYS protect yourself … The way Floyd ended the fight was 100% fair."
Does Floyd Senior's argument convince U?
