Even with the NFL taking center stage on Sunday, Las Vegas was still buzzing about the wacky finish to the Floyd Mayweather-Victor Ortiz fight at the MGM Grand Garden Arena.
With a fourth-round knockout, Mayweather retained his title and moved 42-0, but it wasn't your garden variety fight finish.
Ortiz headbutted Mayweather and was docked a point. When the fight "re-started," one fighter was ready and the other had his hands at his side. Mayweather clocked the clueless Ortiz with a combination and down went the 24-year-old Mexican-American fighter.
Fans who spent $50 for closed-circuit viewing, $70 for the pay-per-view and hundreds, if not thousands for a seat in the area, walked away with an empty, confused or angry feeling.
