Mayweather-Ortiz 24/7 Episode 3: No Fights With Dad, No Skits With 50...WOODS

422The third episode of HBO's Mayweather-Ortiz 24/7 continued the theme of showing the personality differences between Floyd and Victor. Basically, we see the Money persona versus Humble Victor.

Mayweather said he was miffed at the attention Ortiz' backstory has gotten. He then made a crack about Ortiz getting massaged by a man in the last episode, and added another crack at Oscar De La Hoya, who was seen wearing fishnets in photos of him cavorting with an ex stripper in 2007.

Mayweather is then seen working his body, not his mouth. He does pads with Uncle Roger. We then see Floyd sipping a mix of orange soda and Mountain Dew in his workout's homestretch.

Viewers then see a Labor Day cookout given by Floyd's staff, to thank the fighter.

In Ortiz' zone, we see Victor at a public meet n greet at a block party. The next day, a group from Big Brothers and Big Sisters come to visit Victor. Props to the fighter for giving back to kids who need some direction and hope. He tells the kids not to give in to negativity, and to believe in themselves.

At his media day, in Ventura, CA., Ortiz says he isn't phased. Trainer Danny Garcia too says he doesn't focus on the hubbub. "Our job is to work hard and get ready," he says.

Ortiz slams a heavy bag and barks out personal affirmations.

At the Mayweather Boxing Club, media day arrives. It's old hat for Money. He chatters, cracks jokes, works the speedbag, and then does a Q n A. He is asked about the spat with his dad in episode one. "I wish him nothing but the best," Floyd says.

Floyd says he's tired of hearing that Ortiz has had it so hard. "They make it seem like I just woke up and I'm just a multimillionaire. My father been in prison, my mother left, my mother been on drugs, and my father been a drug dealer. I been through it all. We lived seven deep in a one bedroom. But I don't talk about that on the show," Floyd says of his upbringing in Michigan.

Floyd is then seen at a car dealership, with a couple pals. We're told he owns 14 luxury cars, worth more than $4 million. On this day, he trades a Bentley for a new Rolls.

We then see the new Rolls, all white. He pays in cash to make up the difference.

Ray J plays the piano in Floyd's living room, and sings some.

At Danny Garcia's house, he is studying tape of Floyd. He watches Floyd against Ricky Hatton. "He's dirty," Garcia comments, when Floyd is seen throwing a forearm.

Garcia says "Floyd's going to pay for his mistakes." We shall see..Victor could well get shut out. I see balance issues, and him squaring up, and him being absolutely ripe for Floyd to pick apart. Unless Floyd has aged more than a bit...

Ortiz says he's happy with his progress in camp. "As of right now, everything is feeling pretty on point."

Karl Dargan, Tony Flores and Steve Forbes give him sparring work. Garcia tells the boxer to go inside, aim for the body, and be aggressive with the jab.

Next, Floyd takes the Rolls for a spin. He says that "my fans come first. I don't want to say they come first because I come first, self preservation is the law of the land, I must put myself first...People that pay to see you win, people that pay to see you lose, they're both fans, because they both paying."

At his house, the night owl is on Skype, at 2:30 AM. He chats with US soldiers in Afghanistan. "I want to let every troop know over there that's fighting for this country, I love you guys."

His fiancee, Miss Jackson, pops in to say hi. The troops seem to love her dimples.

He then boasts about his net worth, and his 22 thousand square foot home. Not sure how this played to the soldiers, who are fighting for peanuts, and frequently have to fight for benefits when they come back home...

Ortiz then tells his coaches he wants a day off. "They didn't like it too much, but I was like, all due respect, coach, I'm going to take my day off whether you guys like it or not." Garcia says he's cool with that.

The day off sees Team Ortiz going on a fishing expedition. Ortiz says, "Floyd thinks this is going to be a walk in the park. This is going to be very ugly, bloody walk for him. There's a lot of thing I see in him, about him, they don't mix with me, and they won't."

Mayweather references his legal woes, his arrogance. But he always comes to win, all must admit. Granted, sir.

We finish with a series of cuts back and forth between the two, working out, and talking up their chances and bonafides. Floyd has the last words: "I am the WBC, world's best champion, world's best champion. I'm going to be the last man standing, still here, still going strong. Anybody else, who's next?"

One week till Victor goes to school.

amayseng says:

you dont think ortiz stands a chance roast?

go back and watch the hatton fight, floyd, although spanked hatton, took a lot of lead left
hooks from ricky... it was a difficult fight for floyd, hattons movement and lunging into him kept floyd from being able to counter and made him use his lead right and tight up immediately. in fact floyd held a lot, a lot.

i think ortiz has a chance with the right game plan, stay right, when floyd dips and rolls stay more right and just bang floyds left side and near back...just try to out score floyd because he cant out box him..

activity and not standing in the pocket will be helpful for victor

Radam G says:

Ditto amayseng about the "activity" part. And not a single reader jump up in my shiny, white, grill! You heard and saw Money May say that he's tired of the storyline of Vicious Victor...and that "black parents leave their children all da time...Every black you know raised [sic] deyself [sic]!

Wow! Fudge all that Mayweather propagandized jive! Now, I'm gonna spit and talk sh*t. Optical illusion are everywhere causing mass confusions [sic]. And to Money May's fanfaronades, fans [except your's truly], nuthuggers, busters, fibbers, fakers, shakers, haters, and those who are not-in-da know and da know nothings many naively conclusions.

In the 24/7 piece, Money May said that "they say [he has] problems with southpaws." And they're 100 percent darn RIGHT! And since Money May and HBO are full of sh*t and word slickery, let me say he whups only one kind of southpaw's arse -- black. That is RIGHT! I posted it! I'm just be as a MAYWEATHER -- REAL and 'sayin' what's on my mind." The southpaws, who Money May has fought, followed the Mayweather's script because it's "a black thang."

"Lil' Floyd is da MAN!" And following the race code of who's "da MAN" is POWERFUL among blacks.

NEWFLASH!!! NONE-black Vicious Victor O doesn't know that code or the script that he's suppose to abide by and act upon. And, oddly, the southpaws, who always whup da hebejeebeez outta of "Lil' Floyd" in sparring sessions were not black. And the only southpaws, who thrashed Money May's arse in the amateurs were not blacks. CONCLUSION = Money May, as a pro fighters, shunned none black southpaws until NOW! YUP! He beat four black southpaws in the pros. But when has he fought a none-black one in a real fight? NEVER! Don't jump into my sh*t, HATERS and FADERS, because it was not long ago that you suckas said that Da Manny "never fight black fighters." Well, Da Manny has since shot you suckas -- led by reader ali -- da double fudge UP!

Being a boxing gamer insider, I'm gonna spit da inside skinny. [Hate me for dat! I don't given a double___!] Inside da game, we're not politically correct fudgers -- nor do we make an effort to be. If you cannot take da reality and actuality, tough some that rhymes with hitty that starts with a T. You've seen and heard Money May, B-Hop, Lou Duva, Lou D'Bella, Larry Holmes, GOAT Ali, da fight doctor Pachecko and a lot of others, to name a few. They say what-da-da fudge is on their mind and what they believe. Let me follow that direction.

IMHO Money May is nervous as sh*t. He's in high hope that his psy ops, myth ops about "slick, fast, quick black boxers being superior to all others," and Mayweather's black arts of elbow punching to get into VVO's head and slow him down and psych him out. Holla!

ali says:

Ortiz people is worried about Mayweather elbow thats funny....Listen they have never took a point from him durning a fight so your wasting your time crying about....All the greats had little tricks the got away with....From Ali grabing a guys head to Hopkinshit a guy on the hip when the ref is on the other side......I remember Trinadad using his elbow all the time...Ortiz e

the Roast says:

@Amayseng, No I dont think Victor has a chance. He can't outbox Floyd by any stretch of the imagination. His only chance is to land a bomb and win by KO. I don't see that happening. Floyd picked Ortiz for one reason, to look good. The kid beat Andre Berto, that's it. Ortiz's agression will be his undoing. Floyd is the best defensive/counter punching fighter of this generation. You mentioned the Hatton fight. That check hook that KOed Ricky is gonna be on display this Saturday. Ortiz is a wild swinger and he is gonna get countered time and time again. Floyd is no big puncher so Victor may hear the final bell but Floyd is gonna toy with him. It's a wide UD or late TKO, I'm not sure yet.

Radam G says:

Nobody is crying about the elbow, ali! You are good at making up syet to suit your balderdash gewgaw. And you don't know syet! IF Money May uses that elbow, he will get kayoed. That jive works against a scary-a$$ conventional fighter. A southpaw will break Money May's ribs for throwing that sh*t. But it is all good. You are the greatest nuthugger of a ___fantasy. And every real-life fairy tales has a reality and actuality of an ending. Holla!

Radam G says:

By the way, ali, GOAT Ali's grabbing behind the head is LEGAL HOLDING, better known as clinching. Check the rules. And learn something that many of the dumb-a$$ referees don't know. GOAT Ali was not tricking. Holla!

amayseng says:

@roast, good points, and no, no way victor stands at a line, and out boxes floyd, very few in history can do that...however

however, however...

floyd wont be able to pot shot and throw 30 punches a round and win rounds against ortiz who will be averaging 65-70....activity alone will win rounds, floyds 6 razor right hands and tying up with a random jab wont win him rounds....

floyd is phenomenal, but i just dont think he looks good during this fight, this aint shane mosley standing right in front of him at 38 mouth gasping, gassed in round 3 and up...

this is a young lion, one who will not only move but be crashing into floyd all night wearing him down a bit....

rewatch the hatton fight, floyd struggled a lot with hattons pressure and physicality...

that check hook is swift, however with a southpaw if he keeps his right on his chin he can shoot that left down the middle during that shot..

i just really think this fight will be competitive.

amayseng says:

ali held behind the head so much my dad hated his soul....hahaha....my dad was a big frazier fan as well, that didnt fair well anyways with ali...
bhop is a true master, i cant even be mad at him for the shit he does, his ring iq has to be top 5 all time..
but mayweather does put that elbow up in his opponents throat, and he should be warned and penalized for it, not only is it dirty but it is horribly illegal.

who is the ref in this fight anyways?

the Roast says:

@Ameyseng, I like the however and I have seen the Hatton fight a bunch of times. The fight was even after six, then Ricky lost his way. I don't think Ortiz will throw that many punches per round. He's gonna miss alot and pay for it. I hope it's a good fight. I'm gonna buy it. I havent bought one in a long time.

I don't know who the ref is but that's a good question.....Im not saying Mayweather elbow is legal all im saying is I've never seen a ref take a point a point for him using it....so Ortiz should just fight and worry about it.

ali says:

Nobody is crying about the elbow, ali! You are good at making up syet to suit your balderdash gewgaw. And you don't know syet! IF Money May uses that elbow, he will get kayoed. That jive works against a scary-a$$ conventional fighterwith dark hue, who are part of a psych-out race code thing. A southpaw with less pigmentation and no exposal to da "black bottom ghetto'" will break Money May's ribs for throwing that sh*t. But it is all good. You are the greatest nuthugger of a ___fantasy. And every real-life fairy tales has a reality and actuality of an ending. Holla!

Black bottom ghetto. Ok radam g wow!!!!!

michaelabii says:

This will be competitive much the same as the Hatton fight was. Ortiz is bigger and stronger than Hatton but Floyd has gotten bigger as well. Floyd is certainly strong at this weight and I think a lot of his opponents underate his strength and physicality at 147. I really have not seen him manhandled at this weight. If Berto was able to catch ortiz with those shots with the right hand then you can be certain Floyd will 'touch" Ortiz with the right hand all night long. This fight could go both ways - We could have a fight similar to Floyds first fight with Jose luis castillo, a rough and tumble affair with Floyd coming away with a majority or split decision win or we could have a fight similar to Floyds fight with Gatti where Floyd just dominates from the get go. I think the latter scenario is more likely with Ortiz corner throwing in the towel somewhere around the 8th or 9th round. Great fight card though ! Pity about the Mathysse/Morales non fight but it looks like they found a worthwhile substitute.

Radam G says:

@ali, "black-bottom ghetto" is from Emanuel Steward, not me. So don't be acting like I'm not a bag of chips and all that. A term is just a term. Their is an area -- Olongapo City -- of the Pilipinas that everybodeee and dey momma and da AmerKanos called "sh*t hole, and adjacent to that was a sh*t river. I sh*t you not, Just ask your boy, B-Sug, ali. But that sh*t hole is now da money-making, industrial BOMB, BABBEEEEE! Ali, it all right not to know every darn thing and to be a bit naive. We are all that way about sumptin,' my man. Holla!

Radam G says:

@the Roast. I ain't buying that PPV jive. I will be in the P-Islands with my peeps and my tribes viewing the bout for FREE! [This will be my first time missing a live bout of Money May's since he became world champion back in the late 1990s.] And you are in for a BIG surprise. Money May's black arts of the elbow to the throat and upside the jaw and his kangaroo check hooks and hooks period are going to get him into deep kimche. Plus his tricks of the trade of turning his back and head dropping south are going to get him checkmated.

Rightfully, when Money May turns his back and drops his head south, Vicious Victor is going to sting him in the kidneys and the back of the head. And inadvertently fouling is allowed if the opponent turns in a manner that he is causing you to do that jive. [Money May has been a master tricking boxers into not hitting him and referees wrongfully warning them when they'd poke him in the back, because he was getting on his optical illusions and causing mass confusion.] Money May has trapped himself into a spiderweb-like situation, because he's being fly. And everyone and his cousin know that a fly has a thousand eyes and is arrogant as a muthabuzzer.

The fly see a spiderweb as an easy flower to fudge with and show his a$$ off to to other nuthugging and groupie flies. It sees the spider in the middle of the web as a harmless bud. All an optical illusion. But THEN when the fly buzzes into the web that he thought was a flower -- KaSTUCK! And trapped in those sticky, tricky web threads like a muthafool. Then, what the fly thought was a bud -- the spider -- start moving rapidly and web wrap dat fly a$$ UP! And then will be able to eat that arse up at will before the BIG KILL! And WHAT DA DOUBLE FUDGE! Those Vegas blind-arse judges will save Money May. And that is my say. Holla!

Ok radam g its all good.

You know what I think about Floyd's choice of fighting Ortiz, not highly, but it doesn't mean that Ortiz doesn't have a chance. With that said, what makes you think that Ortiz, who is younger, bigger, faster, stronger, throws straighter punches than Hatton, "miss a lot?" The worst thing Ortiz has going for him is his lack of head movement. Floyd can turn him into a bobble head. But boxing is about how two fighters' bodies "fit." Depending on how Mayweather and Ortiz "fit," Ortiz could have a lot of success.

Radam G says:

PREACH! FJC! That was some righteous SPIT! Yall suckas bettah listen! Enough said, in da spit of Donputo69! Where in da heck are you, Don? I hope not back down da river or up da river, whichever one people call doing time in da can. And where in da Midwest is Isaiah -- my ex arch-enemy? I miss da dude spittin' and bullish*ttin!' I ain't too proud to admit to it.

@the Roast, you need to light up those search fires and find those dudes. C'mon back Rudy, Saul, Solo, Koolaid, Coach Major, #1 PacFan, Smoke, Pete Seward, the only boxer who kick da arses of Sugar Ray Leonard, Aaron "Hawk Time" Pryor, Elmer Kenty and "Fuji" Bruce Curry in da amateurs. Man, everbodeee and dey momma know dat ya woulda, coulda and shoulda been a professional champ and title-belt holder if you could have kick that drug addiction. But it is all good. Sometimes all types of syet robbed us of our utimate potential. Like you use to say, "Stay STRONG! And your a$$ can come back from doing any WRONG! olla!

the Roast says:

@F4JC, I think Ortiz will miss alot because he's a wild swinger. I hope I'm wrong. I hope it's the fight of the year. Lets see Floyd get knocked twice, Ortiz down twice and a split desicion. i just think that Vic is gonna get hit with counter after counter. Floyd wants to look good. Pac beats JMM, and we get that Super Fight before we all get too damn old.

FighterforJC says:

@Roast: I wouldn't call Ortiz a wild swinger. He's what I consider an "overzealous swinger." His technique is not wild or sloppy, but he has the tendency to get reckless in the heat of battle. Also, I think that Mayweather's beard is a bit overrated. I mean, it looks sturdy enough but Mosley hasn't hurt anyone with a single punch for a long time, the way he hurt Mayweather with it. He caught Margarito with 2 dozen clean shots before he even finally budged a little bit, and Mosley caught chinny Cotto with a few solid shots. This match could get really interesting, but my head tells me Mayweather only fights those he is 110% sure he can beat. We'll see if he miscalculated Ortiz.

the Roast says:

@F4JC, you make good points. Mosley never was a big puncher at welter. I also agree that Floyd would not have picked Ortiz if he wasn't sure he would win. Ortiz has to land a big punch early to get his confidence. Floyd is 35 and hasnt fought in 16 months so the rust could work against him. I just think Mayweather is too skilled for Victor. I am up for this fight.

brownsugar says:

Ortiz punches straight but he squares up, however he does deliver mutliple tight hooks and uppercuts in rapid succession... if he gets close up on his prey.. he's extremely dangerous(and the shoulder roll will be nullified at that distance). At mid range it becomes a wild shoot out that the Money Man may be able to exploit. we'll see.

brownsugar says:

this is gonna be fun.
