Floyd Mayweather vs Victor Ortiz - The Grand Arrival in Las Vegas!
Floyd Mayweather Jr. once again made headlines yesterday afternoon after an intense stare down with WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz inside of the MGM Grand Garden Arena following their packed weigh-in. Mayweather will challenge Ortiz inside of the same arena tonight and he attempted to rattle his younger foe's nerves a bit by staring him down and placing his right hand on Ortiz’s neck in an obvious show of gamesmanship.
Emotions were certainly high and members from both camps could be seen going back and forth with one another to the crowd’s delight well after the faceoff between Floyd and Victor had transpired. One man in particular, former heavyweight prospect and good friend of Mayweather, Nate Jones, was the last man standing as he engaged in some spirited back-and-forthing with some select Ortiz supporters in the crowd.
Mayweather always seems to have a myriad of followers around him but the burly Jones is another case. He has known Floyd closely for over sixteen years, dating back to 1994 when they met at the National Golden Gloves and became interested in one another after seeing the other fight inside of the ring.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. vs. Victor Ortiz is on September 17, 2011 at MGM Grand, Las Vegas. This could be a defining moment for the two great warriors and it will reveal who is really deserve to have a crack to fight against the pound-for-pound king Manny Pacquiao..... Watch it!
