Mayweather unhappy with HBO and Ortiz on 24/7 Episode 2

According to undefeated boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr, he is unhappy the way HBO (Home Box Office) produced the Episode 2 of the award-winning reality TV series 24/7.

"I was very unhappy with the second episode of 24/7. HBO needs a new editor. The network does not show the real entertainment," according to the American pound-for-pound king in his Twitter account. He is dead beat of seeing the spotlight being sited on the struggles that Victor Ortiz had to overcome. When Ortiz was 7 years old, his mother left the family. His father also left the family when he was 13 years old because of alcohol addiction. What's left was his older sister and younger brother, Temo, who is always with him to help.

In the Mayweather vs Ortiz 24 7 Episode 2 video, HBO was still telling the world how difficult it is for Ortiz to climb to the top and be hailed as the WBC Welterweight Champion. It also showcased the training camp of Ortiz together with his trainer Danny Garcia, the brother and neighbor of Robert Garcia.

"We are tired of Victor Ortiz story about his struggles. It's Boring now. Blacks go through life struggles all the time and always RISE," Mayweather added in another post. "HBO needs to give the viewers what they deserve because 24/7 is a highly anticipated show and I don't want to disappoint the viewers."

A number of fans seem to agree with Mayweather's comments about the Episode 2 of Mayweather vs Ortiz. But many fans also don't understand him. Even though the rugs-to-riches life of Victor was showed there were also other stuffs that were added to the episode such as the Danny-Robert struggles, Oscar de la Hoya drama, Ortiz's tattoo and training and laughing at the beach and a lot more.

We all know that many fighters had to overcome life struggles in the past - including boxing icon Manny Pacquiao (next fight: Pacquiao vs Marquez) of the Philippines who used to sell newspapers in the streets then became one of the richest athletes in the world.

"If the Ratings go down for 24/7, it's not my fault. I've done my job. HBO show what they want. What do yall think," Mayweather exclaimed. He is one of the vocal boxers in the sport and he is showing apprehension that if HBO doesn't make a modification in the Mayweather vs Ortiz 24/7 Episode 3 and Mayweather vs Ortiz 24/7 Episode 4, it could have an effect on the ratings, which could potentially have an impact on PPV buys for the fight.

What is your opinion about the 24/7 Episode 2: Ortiz vs Mayweather? Do you think they will add more entertainment factor in the following episodes?
