Floyd Mayweather Jr. may have an ongoing defamation suit with Manny Pacquiao, but apparently it’s taught him very little. During the first stop of the promotional tour for his upcoming fight with Miguel Cotto, Mayweather took a shot at the only two fighters to whom Cotto has lost. “One man has to rise to the occasion and that will be me,” Mayweather reportedly said Monday in Puerto Rico. “Floyd Mayweather is not a cheater like Antonio Margarito and Manny Pacquiao. Hard work. Hard work. Hard work.” We don’t mind Floyd calling Antonio Margarito a cheater because he is one. But calling Manny Pacquiao a cheater is unfair when there is no proof he’s cheated. Pacquiao takes the accusations seriously and has even issued denial statements in response to Floyd. It would be nice if the two finally fought to sort matters out in the ring, but we know it’s going to be a long time before that happens, if ever. In the meantime, Floyd continues to settle for cheap shots.
