Manny Pacquiao

Rips 'Uneducated' Mayweather

Manny Pacquiao is following 50 Cent and Nelly's lead -- bashing Floyd Mayweather for his apparent lack of formal education.

Manny was doing an interview with NJ.com when he started going off on the boxing champ. 

"I think I finally understand him ... what he says ... how he acts ... and I don’t like it."

"But what l learned and heard from him, well, I realize why he is like that. I understand sometimes when the people are not educated they just talk to talk. He sets a very bad example." 

Mayweather's erudition has been under attack lately -- with 50 claiming the fighter can't read and Nelly trashing him for allegedly failing to graduate high school. 

Floyd has been mostly silent about the attacks -- but his father went off on his behalf ... calling 50 (and everyone else ripping his son's education) as "player haters." For more sports stories, check out tmzsports.com!
