Mayweather Rips Pacquiao: Praised For My Leftovers

By Chris LaBate

Floyd Mayweather Jr. doesn't believe the boxing public is giving him a fair shake when it comes to Manny Pacquiao. Speaking to BoxingScene.com's Luis Sandoval, Mayweather said the boxing critics attack his competition but praise Pacquiao for fighting the same competition.

From Oscar De La Hoya, Ricky Hatton and Shane Mosley, Mayweather says that he fought them first and received negative feedback for the wins, but Pacquiao received praise for beating older versions of the same opponents. Mayweather is facing WBC welterweight champion Victor Ortiz on September 17. Pacquiao defends his WBO title against Juan Manuel Marquez on November 12. Both fights are taking place at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

"I've been talking about the Pacquiao thing for a while now. Like I've said before, I don't know if he has two or three losses, but there is a remedy on how to beat Pacquiao. We know Pacquiao has been knocked out twice. He has three losses. He has two draws. There is no remedy on how to beat Floyd Mayweather yet," Mayweather told BoxingScene.com. 

"When I beat fighters they say they are too small, or too slow, or over the hill - but when he fights the guys he gets praise for it. I fight them first and then he fights my leftovers. If you guys want to write, just tell the truth. That's all I ask. I have one question for you. Name me one athlete and not just boxing. Tell me one athlete right now who's done it for fifteen years and is still undefeated."
