Floyd Mayweather recently took a few shots at Manny Pacquiao, stating that he should 'stop lying' about his shoulder injury, and using it as an excuse for his decision loss during their bout last May. He took to instagram and posted the following video where he slaps a dummy he pretends to be his Filipino opponent.

Pacquiao has since responded to the clip, with an equally polite and insulting dig at Mayweather and his past domestic violence cases. He has released the following statement in response to the video:

"We should understand Floyd Mayweather Jr. because of his family background. He hailed from a family of ex-convicts and he himself is an ex-convict. We could not blame him because his action just showed the kind of family upbringing he had,"

"It only reminds me of what he did to his ex-wife. I hope he would find time to reflect on his life and repent for the sins he committed in the past. A real champion is gracious both in his words and conduct. Someone who is a champion not just in his chosen field of endeavor, but even in his own home and private life."

I say this round of online jabs goes 10-8 in favor of Pacquiao, although it's too bad they didn't throw this many shots at each other during their actual fight.
