Manny Pacquiao watched the Mayweather-Ortiz fight on tv and didn’t like the manner in which the fight ended. Manny spoke to the Philippine Star after the fight.
“Very poor sportsmanship,” said the Pacquiao in the aftermath of Floyd Mayweather’s controversial knockout of Victor Ortiz in Las Vegas yesterday.
Pacquiao said he didn’t’ see anything illegal with what Mayweather did because he thought that the referee, Joe Cortez, had already ordered the fight to continue.
“It was not illegal,” he said.
Freddie Roach also gave his opinion of the controversial knockout.
“The referee was still talking to someone at ringside. And I didn’t see him said ‘box’ like they always do. I think he lost control,” said Roach
Joe Cortez on the other hand, made it clear no foul play was done by Floyd.
“Time was in. The fighter needed to keep his guard up. Mayweather did nothing illegal,” Cortez firmly said after the fight.
We all could only hope Manny continues to speak about Mayweather and wins his next fight, we all will “MAYweather” get the match we have been waiting for.
