Mayweather Again

Those who accuse the villainous and offensively arrogant Floyd Mayweather, Jr. in sucker punching himself to a fourth round knockout over Victor Ortiz are off-base in their criticism. First, Ortiz in an apparent fit of desperation resorted to head-butting in an effort to turn the tide; and second, attempting to apologize for the infraction, he failed to adhere to the admonition fighters have been reminded of since time immemorial, namely, "protect oneself at all times." Indeed, the referee said that the time was in and that Mayweather hadn't done anything illegal.
