WHY THE HATRED?
Ring magazine need to stop you writing about Floyd Mayweather. Seriously, your bias against the man makes it embarrassing to read your views on him. You are supposed to be a proffesional writer, that means you are supposed to give an objective view on what you're watching, not spew some YouTube-esque hatred against someone you don't like.
Pre-fight you gave Ortiz a great shot at beating Floyd, then after Mayweather outclassed him in every department, (giving away 14 pounds by the way, funny you didn't mention that) Ortiz is suddenly some naive ''manchild'' Mayweather had a duty of care over. No doubt had Ortiz succeeded in his intentions with that headbutt and broke Mayweathers nose or fractured a cheekbone, you'd have said that it's all part of the fight game. Mayweather retaliates with a street move of his own and it's a step above biting chunks out of another mans ear. I urge you to tone it down Doug, it's unbecoming of an institution like 'The Ring' to publish such bile from a supposed sports writer. -- Ben
Thank you Ben! I used to love Dougie, but he's lost all respect that I have for him. How can you say that Mayweather's punch or punches were one step below Mike Tyson biting Evander's ear? At first I though he was referring to Ortiz's actions, but apparently it has to do with Floyd knocking Ortiz out.
Doug makes an esxuse that his opinion is only in his mailbags, BS, he said in a column that Mayweather's actions were almost as close as Tyson's ear biting. I think he is still very bitter that Mosley didn't come true for him. He was so certain that Shane would knock out Floyd and then Mayweahter outclasses him like nobody has including Forrest and Winky. Never gave Floyd any credit though. They should fire Fischer and Merchant both.
