Ortiz: Mayweather threw ’16 or 17′ illegal elbows in 2011 fight

26 Jul, 2017

Ortiz says Mayweather made many illegal shots on him during their 2011 fight. Mayweather controversially knocked out Ortiz as he was holding out his hands  in apology for a headbutt against Mayweather. Ortiz says he resorted to the headbutt because Mayweather was continually striking him with illegal elbows.

 

You can’t elbow unless you are Mayweather. I think on both parts we both had a lot of mistakes taking place. He was hitting me with his elbows. I took a lot of them. I took I believe 16 or 17. I kept telling (referee) Cortez, ‘Hey Cortez, elbow, elbow.’ (He just said) ‘Keep fighting Ortiz, keep fighting Ortiz…(I was) trying but then it got to the point where I felt like I was seeing double out of one eye and I think that’s your retina when that is happening. The other eye was starting to swell, not from the punch. He (elbowed) and got away with it. I think what I did was wrong, I headbutted. I ended up paying ugly.
