Video: Floyd Mayweather Sr. Speaks at Pacquiao vs Mosley Weigh-In

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

Fight Hype caught up with Floyd Mayweather Sr. at yesterday's Pacquiao vs Mosley weigh-in, which Floyd attended because -- he says -- he's looking to scout new talent. I don't know. This is 18 and a half minutes long.

(Language NSFW)

Mayweather spends a lot of time claiming his words have previously been twisted, and trying to explain why he doesn't give many interviews anymore, then also briefly discusses the defamation lawsuit brought against him and other parties (because his words were twisted, says Floyd Sr.).

This is all very predictable and at this point pretty tired. In all candor, Floyd doesn't say much of note, in part because he seems like he's trying to be careful what he says (rightly so), and in part because I just don't think he has a whole lot to say anymore. He does at one point say again that Manny Pacquiao should "take the test," then later says that if something has never happened before -- such as Pacquiao knocking out giant men, which I can't honestly recall ever happening, as the only truly bigger man he's stopped since '08 is Oscar, who was a disaster and a lame duck in the ring -- someone needs to ask questions. So he's taken that role.

Or whatever. He does talk about Saturday's fight a little. Listen for yourself.
