Manny Pacquiao

Rips 'Uneducated' Mayweather

9/2/2014 7:19 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF


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!

For an uneducated human being who can't read, he sure knows how to run his own company and promotional team, negotiate contracts that lead him to earning hundreds of millions of dollars, that's for sure. This guy is more successful than all the people talking trash about him.

As a black women I agree with Pacquio. Floyd is the epitome of the ignorant black male stereotype. This bothers me because it's not a fair representation of black men.

His father should be accepting responsibility for his son’s illiteracy instead of firing-off with that weak defense. I think Floyd deserves these attacks -- not because he’s uneducated but because he’s an ass. I’m not familiar with TI but I thought it was grossly disrespectful for Floyd to carry-on about that man’s wife. For that alone, he deserves any public attacks that he gets. I’m a long-time boxing fan and I have never seen any champ run from what would be the best fight of their career. Floyd’s stupid antics while dodging a fight with Manny makes any real boxing fan’s blood boil. Maybe these attacks will be good for him; let’s just see how he finally responds.

Nelly needs to shut up. I didn't graduate either. Not, because I chose not too, but because my bipolar kicked my senior year. My IQ is all-out higher then his & I have idea what my IQ. It tops the charts.

I think it's funny how back in 2010 Pacquiao and Mayweather were supposed to fight but Mayweather kept backing away even after Pacquiao agreed to all his ridiculous demands. Mayweather won't fight him cause he knows Pacquiao will beat him.
