    I say Merchant was well within his rights as an interviewer to tell Mayweather to fuck off, BUT he will still be made to either apologize, retire, or get fired outright

    Also, there should be (but won't) some kind of panel to decide if the ref fucked up

    Also, Ortiz will now say he was cheated

    Thank you :hat:

    I hear what you're saying about Larry. Upon further reflection, I think he MIGHT be asked to apologize, but he's kinda expected to be straight-shooting curmudgeon. He isn't going to be fired or forced to retire. That's my bet anywho.

    Overall I think last night, and not just the main event, set a dying sport back.

    The WBC already reviewed the fight and said the ref had restarted the fight and signaled to the timekeeper to start the clock well before the first punch was thrown, so I doubt he would suffer any repercussions.

    Ortiz may not like it, but after he watches it again, he probably will realize it was more a consequence of his inexperience and stupidity more than anything else.

    I heard Merchant is going to retire and challenge Chuck Zito to a MMA match.

    It all depends on The Negro Problem and how far they want to take it, and Larry's response to what they ask him to do

    And until Mayweather fights the filipino he's a pussy

    Then the fix is IN, because the ref obviously had no idea what was going on

    I also thought it kinda looked like Ortiz stayed down on purpose

    We've had an ongoing Merchant joke for years because he always seems like he's drunk :p

    It wouldn't surprise me if it was fixed. Fighting Mayweather is a great payday regardless if you win or lose. Ortiz is young too, so he will not have any problem coming back from the loss. Also, it was actually two punches that were thrown. After the first, which didn't seem like it did much damage, Ortiz still doesn't defend himself, but in stead looks at the ref. Even though he is young, I find it hard to believe his immediate reaction wouldn't be to defend himself after the first punch.

    He'll never fight him. He is afraid of him. The only reason he fights now is for an occasional payday so he can catch up with his tax bill and keep the IRS off his back. The only way he would fight Pacquiao is if there weren't any promoters out there willing to give him 25 million to fight a chump.
