Video Hype: Full Speeches by Pacquiao and Mosley at Wednesday Press Conference

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Yesterday's press conference at the MGM Grand was a pretty "par for the course" ordeal, with all the sponsors and the Mayor of Las Vegas and Bob Arum telling us this is the greatest fight of all-time and everyone thanking each other profusely. We had quotes and photos from the event yesterday (including a shot of Ines Sainz that people seem to have taken to), but now you can see the full, exciting appearances at the podium by both "Sugar" Shane Mosley and Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao.

Mosley is up there for about three minutes, and he starts with over two minutes of thank yous to various members of his team, Showtime, the MGM Grand, Manny himself, and even Floyd Mayweather. Then he talks about tickets for about 30 seconds. He literally says nothing. Someone noted yesterday in our live update coverage that Mosley is even trigger shy on the mic.

And here's Manny, who says slightly more.

After the jump: James Brown speaking with Pacquiao and Mosley after the press conference.
