Shane Mosley: I Never Said Pacquiao Was Using Steroids

By Chris LaBate

Former three division champion Shane Mosley is not happy with some of the internet reports regarding some tweets that he made on Manny Pacquiao. The Filipino WBO welterweight champion won a one-sided twelve round decision over Mosley on May 7th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Mosley said there are reporters who twisted his words to create controversy. He sent a statement to Yahoo Sports, clearing the air on the subject. He says "Pacquiao was the better man" and he defending him in the past when others made allegations of steroid use. 

"There has been some media coverage recently, stating that I accused Manny Pacquiao of steroid use on Twitter.  This is not true.  I personally respond to my followers on Twitter, and there was an article sent to me which I Re-tweeted.  I did not write the article and did not say that I agree with it.  I have defended Manny Pacquiao publicly regarding these type of allegations, stating that they have never been proven true," Mosley said.

"In our post-fight press conference I told the world that Manny won because he was the better man that night. Manny and I have a mutual respect for one another as true warriors and gentlemen.  We both strive to be the best we can be at boxing, as family men, and as humanitarians."

[QUOTE=doninlouisiana;10596015]I have to agree, and to be honest he has a lot of balls EVEN getting in the ring with Pac. There are others out there who are younger and stronger that want no part of him. Can't disagree here…
