Results and a full coverage round-up from Mayweather vs. Ortiz

Say what you will about the sportsmanship of Floyd Mayweather and Victor Ortiz, but their fight on Saturday night was, at the very least, interesting and entertaining. Mayweather won the fight via fourth round knockout, but the circumstances were extremely controversial. Following a deliberate headbutt by Ortiz that netted him a point deduction, Ortiz attempted to apologize to Mayweather after referee Joe Cortez had restarted the fight. Though it might have been dirty and Cortez wasn't looking, Mayweather knocked out Ortiz in completely legal fashion, winning the fight and keeping his undefeated record intact.
