Floyd Mayweather Jr. Will Watch Lady Gaga, Not Manny Pacquiao vs. Shane Mosley

In a bit of a "your jealousy is showing" moment for Floyd Mayweather Jr., the boxing star has started to make his way back into the current news. Mayweather had been unusually quiet for several months, but anyone familiar with "Money" knew that he would not let a huge weekend for his rival (Manny Pacquiao) go by without having some comment. Ben Thompson of Fight Hype caught up with Floyd to ask about some of the rumors and get his thoughts on this weekend's fight between Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley.

On rumors that he would fight Paul Spadafora and Roger Mayweather's talk that Floyd would fight in Dallas at Cowboy Stadium:

Listen, I didn't even know Paul Spadafora was still fighting. And whatever Roger said is not true. Since the Shane Mosley fight, I've only seen Roger about three or four times in one year. All the allegations and rumors are false. ...at this particular time, my focus is my family. When I do have an opponent, my fans will be the first to know.

On Pacquiao vs. Mosley:

Leftovers. Because when he comes to my house, the only thing he can eat is leftovers. Shane was already a beaten fighter. Not saying that I wish nothing bad on Shane because I want Shane to win. Everybody says, "Well, if Shane wins, what about your money?" I don't worry about that. I got things outisde the ring that I'm generating major income from. You just hear different stories, different stories, different stories. Whenever Floyd Mayweather wants to get back in the ring, he's going to get back in the ring. The thing is this, Floyd Mayweather has never been scared of Manny Pacquiao at all. Never! At all! All he's doing is fighting my leftovers and he just keeps on saying that I'm scared. All I say every day is this, just take the test!

And finally, will Floyd watch the fight this Saturday?

You know what I'm going to be doing Saturday night? Saturday night, I'm going to be watching Lady Gaga on HBO, the best network in the world. I want everybody to tune in and watch Lady Gaga. She's on the biggest and best network, HBO.

It all sounds like typical sour grapes on Floyd's part. He's out of the rankings after a year of inactivity and Pacquiao continues on as the biggest star in combat sports. Floyd knows that he needs Manny, and he probably needs Manny more than Manny needs him. That's not a situation that he's happy about.
