The HBO pay-per-view bout between Floyd Mayweather and Victor Ortiz got continued into the third round live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, Nevada with the fight even on the MMA Nation and HBO scorecards. Mayweather was quick with the jab in the early stages of the round and Ortiz went hard downstairs. Mayweather started to find a little space to land counter punches and it slowed Victor down a little.
Mayweather looked much better in the third than he did in the second, continuing to work the counters and the very quick jab. Ortiz started going backward which is a terrible plan against Floyd. If Ortiz has any shot in the fight it is being an attacking, pressure fighter.
Ortiz landed a left cross late in the round but ate a much harder right hand in return.
Round: 10-9 Mayweather
Fight: 29-28 Mayweather
