HBO plans to replay the Mayweather-Ortiz bout Saturday night, but for many of us the highlight surely was the all-time classic post-fight interview between Floyd Mayweather and Larry Merchant, which was filled with too many expletives for me to embed it here.

We are a family friendly website.

Basically, Mayweather cursed out Merchant, saying he didn't know - - about boxing.

Merchant, 80, said if he were 50 years younger he would kicked Floyd's - -.

What a sport!
