Pacquiao to Sue Mayweathers for Defamation

Philippine News, Posted: Dec 28, 2009

MANILA--If the Mayweathers won't fight him inside the ring, Manny Pacquiao will take them on outside of it.

Enraged by what he thinks are libelous theatrics by the father-and-son Mayweathers, Pacquiao has instructed Top Rank promoter Bob Arum to file libel, slander, and defamation suits against the Floyd Sr. and Jr. and their company, Golden Boy Promotions (GBP) owned by boxing legend Oscar dela Hoya, whom Pacquiao defeated in a 9th-round TKO.

Enough is enough," Pacquiao said. These people [Mayweather Sr., Jr., and GBP] think it is a joke and a right to accuse someone wrongly of using steroids or other performance-enhancing drugs," said Pacquiao in a report by Philboxing.com.

Floyd Sr. has consistently accused Pacquiao that the source of his winning strength and speed is performance-enhancing drugs. The Filipino has won seven world division championships. Pacquiao said that he passed all eight urine tests made by the Nevada Athletic Commission every time he fought in Las Vegas.
