ORTIZ BLAMES REFEREE, WANTS REMATCH

Victor Ortiz wants a rematch, and Floyd Mayweather Jr. said he is more than happy to accommodate the request.

Ortiz, who was knocked out in the waning seconds of the fourth round Saturday night at the MGM Grand Garden and lost his WBC welterweight title to Mayweather, claims he was the victim of poor refereeing by Joe Cortez.

Moments before the controversial knockout, Ortiz had been assessed a one-point deduction by Cortez for deliberately head-butting Mayweather. When the fight resumed, Ortiz appeared distracted and was not ready. Mayweather immediately pounced on him, delivering a huge left hook to the head, followed by a big overhand right that sent Ortiz to the canvas.
