During the press conference in Los Angeles to announce the September 17th welterweight showdown between Floyd Mayweather and Victor Ortiz, Mayweather revealed that shortly after Manny Pacquiao’s dominant unanimous decision victory over Shane Mosley, both he and Mosley had an interesting conversation over the phone. “If Shane Mosley gives y’all the real story, after the Pacquiao fight, I talked to Shane Mosley on the phone. Now once you guys meet up with Shane Mosley, ask him what he told me,” Mayweather informed the media who were huddled around him and hanging on every word. What he said next, however, took everyone by surprise.
