Mosley says he's doing Floyd's 'dirty work'

Shane Mosley says he's doing Floyd Mayweather Jr.'s ''dirty work'' by facing Manny Pacquiao, and he has no intention of losing to the popular Filipino champion.

Pacquiao and Mosley wrapped up a press tour on Monday promoting their fight, which will air on pay-per-view May 7 from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas.

Fans have been clamoring the past couple years for Pacquiao to face Mayweather in what could be the richest fight in boxing history. But Mayweather has been reluctant to face Pacquiao, and he's now in legal trouble that could prevent that from ever happening.

Mosley lost a lopsided decision to Mayweather last year, and many fans don't think he deserves a shot against Pacquiao, considered the top pound-for-pound fighter in the world.
