[Video] HBO’s Larry Merchant To Floyd Mayweather: ‘If I Was 50 Years Younger, I Would Kick Your Ass’
Larry Merchant vs Floyd >>> Floyd vs Victor Ortiz
If you tuned into the Floyd Mayweather vs. Victor Ortiz fight last night, you were probably left stunned at how the fight ended. Minutes into the fourth round of the fight, Victor Ortiz head butted Mayweather which resulted in him getting a point taken away. He kissed Floyd on the cheek as somewhat of an apology and the two were back in the ring shortly afterward. After a quick embraced, Floyd caught Victor Ortiz off guard with two punches that sent Ortiz down and Mayweather won the fight.
After the fight, Floyd Mayweather kirked out in the post fight interview on HBO commentator Larry Merchant. After Larry Merchant kept pressing him about the ‘unfair’ punch, Floyd shouted, ‘You never give me a fair shake. HBO needs to fire you. You ain’t shit” and Larry responded, ‘If I was 50 years younger, I would kick your ass’.
That 80 year old was not backing down…
