Mayweather Jr. Verbally Abuses Sparring Partner

12/30/2009 10:35 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

The only thing more entertaining than watching Floyd Mayweather Jr. unleash a devastating barrage of punches on a heavier sparring partner ... is watching him do it while calling the bigger guy a "bitch."

Floyd Mayweather, Jr. -- Click to watch video

TMZ has obtained footage of Floyd training in a Las Vegas gym earlier this month, where he let his hands ... and his mouth ... do the talking.

Floyd's sparring partner never backs down from the fight -- and even tosses around a few expletives of his own after Floyd taunts him.

Mayweather is kinda/sorta set to fight Manny Pacquiao sometime in March ... maybe.

I agree that video is entertaining. I'm willing to pay money just to watch them spar... but the real fight gets boring.

I hope people will stop talking about "poor class" in here because this is not about if you have class or some kind of aristocrat. This is boxing.

I'd like to know who the young child you can hear in the background is. Sounds too young to understand the difference between boxing and fighting, particularly when the combantants are both whining about 'bitches'.

The little Punk will get his beatdown soon enough when he gets in the ring with Manny. As soon as he stops running from signing that is... Everybody knows his time as fastest hands in the world will have little effect when punches are coming back at his face from all angles, and not slowing down until he crumples to the canvas.

funny how dumb and uneducated so many of you are.

Mayweather called out Mosley for 10 years. Mosley used a toothache as an excuse. Mosley ducked Mayweather for years and now because Mosley's wife is going to take all his money he needs Floyd for a big payday. By the way, Shane's been caught using EPO, same thing many think Manny is using.

Margarito wasn't a big enough draw, Floyd's words at the time. And he was right because at the time he was even considering him, Margarito was not a big enough name yet. Turns out Margarito was also a cheater.

Floyd was the 1st to sign the contract vs Pacquiao. Floyd agreed to Manny's demands on ring size, glove size and even agreed to a $10 million fine for every pound overweight he is which is ridiculous.

Manny won't agree to the blood testing so close to the fight and it turns out Manny has had blood taken before a fight within a week or 2 of the fight so he is full of s**t.

Manny is the one that is holding this fight back. Many people think he's on something. All he has to do is agree and then the fight is on. Have you ever heard of someone turning down $40 million because of principle?

Oh and TMZ, i can't believe you guys missed the whole scandal of Manny Pacquiao cheating on his wife. I know it came out during the whole Tiger Woods thing but you guys never once mentioned a story about Manny cheating on his wife. He even pulled a Kobe and bought her a 5K diamond ring.

If Manny has nothing to hide, why not do the test?

This is a quote from Miguel Cotto,
“I am in complete awe with Manny’s reaction to this matter. He has always been a great athlete and a gentleman. Why in the world would he require restrictions or conditions for the tests? It is a golden opportunity for him to dissipate all worldwide rumors surrounding his figure and the use of enhancement drugs. His refusal to commit to the tests without conditions raises questions. Olympic type drug testing is the most efficient tool for the sport to secure fair play. My recommendation to all boxing authorities in the world is to implement it across the board. I would agree to it without hesitation or reservations. It is the only way to ensure that the outcome of a bout is the strict result of conditioning and ability. To magnify your talent with drugs is repulsive,” Miguel Cotto stated.

and read this interview with Victor Conte (BALCO guy) who weighs in on the Manny not wanting the testing thing. He talks about how EPO is most effective taken during training so its out of your system by the fight (which is why Floyd's people think its ridiculous that Manny's people want to stop the testing 30 days before), that boxing's current testing is worthless, as well as other things.
