Ashy Or Classy?!? - Floyd "Money" Mayweather.

[Editor's Note: Yeah, this is about a day late. Deal with it.]

Like much of Real America, I too was posted up at a fight party this weekend, and witnessed what will no doubt be one of the most debated sporting developments of the year, as Floyd "Money" Mayweather defeated some soup can named Ortiz in the most shocking of manners. For those of you who happened to miss this Great Moment In Negro Nonsense, here it is, courtesy of a really fuzzy Youtube video that will undoubtedly be pulled any minute now.

Opinions on this varied greatly. Some folks thought Mayweather's punch was perfectly fair. The first rule of boxing is guard your grill. Ortiz obviously missed that memo, and found himself on the receiving end of a two piece. Some also asserted that Ortiz' headbutt was dirty, and thus Floyd was justified in stealing Ortiz.

Personally, I thought this was Ashy at hell. Headbutts aren't legal, but they are commonplace in boxing. Fighters are usually docked a point for them, and the fight resumes. I don't know why Ortiz was begging for apology like Keith Sweat, but he clearly wasn't paying attention when he got clocked. If you're a guy who thinks he's the best fighter alive, as Mayweather does, you shouldn't have to take cheapshots. He was already beating Ortiz anyway, so why bother? It's not like he hasn't been headbutted before. I don't see how this enhances his legacy.

But not to outdo himself, Mayweather saved his best for last.[1]

Like school on a Sunday. No class.

Ashy as hell!!!

Question: Ashy Or Classy?!? Was Mayweather's knockout legit or cheap? What about that interview? Was Merchant out of line, or should Floyd have been a little more humble, as if that's humanly possible for him?

[1] And for the 1,023rd time, who the hell are those twins, and how do they keep getting in the ring at every fight?!?
