Mayweather vs Mosley
The verbal tussle has gone on for a few months now, and has since intensified since December.
With Floyd Mayweather, Jr's (40-0) hostile and light scuffle with Shane Mosley (46-5) in New York earlier this week, "Money" took his offensive combinations to Manny Pacquiao today at a Los Angeles press conference.
Courtesy of ESNews, and on the video's 1:17 mark, Mayweather was shown throwing several punches at a defenseless Pacquiao t-shirt for several seconds.
The Filipino Pacquiao (50-3-2), who is preparing for a tough fight against Ghanaian Joshua Clottey (35-3) may perhaps answer Floyd inside the ring later this year.
For now, Pacquiao is training hard for his March 13th bout with Clottey in Cowboys Stadium.

Ahh, but for now, talk is now mixed with physical action. At least on Mayweather's side.
The pre-fight contrast between the two could not be more starker. Last night, Pacquiao sang George Benson's "Nothing's Gonna Change My Love For You" on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live.'
Popular celebrity site TMZ recently snapped a video of "Money May" in New York amassing a pile of cash inside his tour bus in front of loud fans.
Continuing the theme of contrasts, Ghana-native was recently quoted that he liked Pacquiao because he was a nice person.
While this appears to be a genuine expression of mutual and friendly affection by the African, the principles of warfare mandate that you do not infuriate the
enemy prior to battle. Why make an opponent angry?
From his actions, Floyd Mayweather does not believe in Sun Tzu's lesson. Should Pacquiao and Mayweather get inside the squared circle, one can only wonder how the Filipino boxer would attack his loud pugilistic opponent.

Back to contrast.
On Wednesday's taping of 'Jimmy Kimmel Live,' Pacquiao sang a George Benson song with the following lyrics. (Contrasts, contrasts)
If I had to live without you near me
The days would all be empty
The nights would seem so long
With you I see forever oh, so clearly
I might have been in love before
But it never felt this strong
Our dreams are young and we both know
They'll take us where we want to go
Hold me now, touch me now
I dont want to live without you.
Nothings gonna change my love for you
You oughta know by now how much I love you
One thing you can be sure of
I'll never ask for more than your love.
