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 Ortiz needing to come out and figure out how to adapt to Floyd's jab and lead right hand attack. Instead, Mayweather unloaded early with a big combination and appeared to hurt Ortiz.
Victor tried to come forward but was getting picked apart before Victor trapped Floyd against the ropes and landed a nice flurry including going back to the body. Victor needed to continue building confidence and at least should have some going into the fifth after having a few nice moments.
Suddenly, Victor opened up with another huge combination against the ropes and threw a completely intentional headbutt.
After a point deduction, Ortiz attempted to apologize and instead, Mayweather cracked him with a one-two punch and knocked Ortiz to the floor.
Ortiz could not answer the ten count and the fight was over.
Ortiz deserved his fate, throwing an intentional headbutt in a moment where he appeared to have the advantage upset a much better fighter and got crushed for it.
Floyd Mayweather, Jr. wins by knockout, round 4.
