Shane Mosley Lets Loose On Former Friend Manny Pacquiao Over Homophobic Comments

Shane Mosley Lets Loose On Former Friend Manny Pacquiao Over Homophobic Comments
By Gavan Casey

Future Hall of Famer and former three-weight world champion Shane Mosley has unleashed a stunning tirade against his former friend and opponent Manny Pacquiao regarding the Filipino icon's comments on homosexuality in February.

Pacquiao was dropped by Nike for his 'abhorrent' remarks, and Mosley, who dropped a wide, wide decision to Pacquiao in 2011, has vowed not only to pull his old pal up on his beliefs when he sees him on Saturday night, but to knock him out should Timothy Bradley fail to do so in Las Vegas.

It wouldn't be the first time Mosley has fired shots whilst he slips slowly into boxing irrelevance at the age of 44, but from a purely theatrical perspective it'll be interesting to see if the former pound-for-pound top dog makes good on his promise to confront Pacquiao at the MGM Grand.

Pacquiao has claimed on numerous occasions that his comments were taken out of context, but whatever context they were taken out was probably a bad one - he dug plenty of holes for himself in several interviews and Instagram posts that followed.
