LAS VEGAS -- Manny Pacquiao's next opponent is Shane Mosley and not Floyd Mayweather Jr., as Top Rank promoter Bob Arum announced over Twitter the eight-division world champion will face 39-year-old in Las Vegas on May 7.

Pacquiao (52-3-2) has dominated his last six opponents since earning a split decision over Juan Manuel Marquez in March 2008. A third match with Marquez -- the two split the judges' scorecards in a 2005 bout -- was reportedly on the table, as was a bout with undefeated Andre Berto.

Nevertheless, Mosley (38-3-2) will be Pacquiao's next foe despite a 2-2-1 record in his last five fights, which included a wide decision defeat at the hands of Mayweather earlier this year.

The undefeated Mayweather, currently mired in legal trouble, has not fought since that May victory.
