Floyd Mayweather Jr. is at it again. While fight fans eagerly anticipate the welterweight showdown between boxing superstar Manny Pacquiao and former world champ Shane Mosley, the controversial boxer picked up his bullhorn and downplayed Pacquiao's opponents.

“Leftovers,” Mayweather told Fighthype.com’s Ben Thompson.

The undefeated boxer belittled Pacquiao’s victories over his former opponents, including Mosley.

“Because when he comes to my house, the only thing he can eat is leftovers. Shane was already a beaten fighter,” said Mayweather.

Mayweather was referring to Pacquiao’s wins over boxing great Oscar de la Hoya and Ricky Hatton.

In May 2007, “Pretty Boy Floyd” scored a split decision against De La Hoya before stopping Hatton in 10 rounds months later.

Pacquiao, however, scored dominating victories over the same opponents.

The Filipino champion forced De la Hoya to quit on his stool after 8 rounds in 2008.

In 2009, Pacquiao knocked Hatton out in just 2 rounds.

This coming Saturday (Sunday in Manila), Pacquiao will be facing Mosley, a boxer Mayweather defeated by unanimous decision.

Mayweather, who is taking a hiatus from boxing because of his legal woes, claimed he is not interested in watching the Pacman-Mosley clash.

“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,” said the undefeated boxer.

The undefeated Mayweather is considered as Pacquiao’s closest rival in boxing pound-for-pound status.

He is, however, being accused of ducking the more popular Filipino champion.

“The things is this, Floyd Mayweather has never been scared of Manny Pacquiao at all. Never! At all!” he claimed.

He again dared Pacquiao to take an Olympic drug test, the same issue that he has been using against the Filipino champion.

“All I say everyday is this, just take the test! Floyd's scared of you? Okay. If I'm scared of you, why won't you take the test?” he said.

In a separate report by Boxingscene.com, Pacquiao said he doesn’t think Mayweather is interested to fight.

He, however, agreed that a Mayweather fight would be good for the sport.

"Yes, I believe that [boxing is healthier when that happens], but I don't think he really wants to fight," Pacquiao said.
