The headbutt was dumb and there is no excuse for it....but I believe there is a deeper reason for the legal sucker punch that came afterward. Im gonna go ahead and assume that im the only one who had Victor ahead after 3 rounds and winning the 4th. Compu box doesnt tell the story of the fight I saw. Floyd had a big 3rd round when Victor stopped throwing punches and of course was chopping Ortiz up with counter rights....but he never hurt Ortiz and the whole while Victor is hammering Floyd with shots, getting physical, and making Floyd very uncomfortable. Who really knows what wouldve happened but it looked like Floyds shots couldnt hurt Ortiz and as long as Victor let his hands go he was putting Floyd on the defensive and winning the fight. I think Ortiz landed more punches than he was given credit for.
All that being said there is also no excuse for Joe Cortez losing control of the fight and not taking the time to bring the fighters together as always done and call time in. I had the fight at 2 rounds a piece after the point deduction. If not for a sucker punch we may have seen a good fight.
