Boxing’s most lucrative fight has long been over but  Floyd Mayweather Sr. is not done throwing verbal jabs at Manny Pacquiao.

Floyd Jr. won via unanimous decision over Pacquiao in what was called as the Fight of the Century but the fight proved to be a dud as Mayweather stayed on the defensive and prevented Pacquiao, who later admitted that he was nursing a shoulder injury, from executing his frenetic offense.

In an interview with FightHype.com, Mayweather Sr. criticized Pacquiao’s lack of heart and insisted there was nothing wrong with the Filipino boxing champion’s shoulder.

Apart from ripping Pacquiao, Mayweather Sr. praised his son’s next opponent, Andre Berto, saying the American is a bigger threat to his son than the eight-division World Champion.

“I think Berto will probably give a better fight than Pacquiao because didn’t do nothing at all because he wanted to make up excuses,” Mayweather told FightHype.com. “There wasn’t nothing wrong with his arm, there wasn’t nothing wrong with his eyes, wasn’t nothing wrong with his lips. Something was wrong with his heart.”

Pacquiao said after the May 2 fight he had a torn rotator cuff on his right shoulder which affected him during the fight.

“He couldn’t cruise. Floyd was tearing him up. He couldn’t do nothing. Pacquiao is just a liar with no skills.”
