Mayweather-Pacquiao Update: Pacquiao actually files lawsuit

The Associated Press reports that Manny Pacquiao has actually gone through with his lawsuit threats. The defamation suit names Floyd Mayweather Jr., Floyd Mayweather Sr., Roger Mayweather, Oscar de la Hoya and Richard Schaefer.

"The truth did not stop Mayweather and the others," the suit contends. "That is because they are motivated by ill will, spite, malice, revenge and envy."

Pacquiao's attorney, Dan Petrocelli, said his client could be out millions of dollars if boxing fans believe he used steroids or human growth hormone to win titles in seven weight classes.

"The damage to his reputation and lost business opportunities could be in the tens of millions of dollars," Petrocelli said.

I don't really have much to add to this one. Brick may be able to add if there's anything to this (if the Pacquiao side has a real case or not) or if it's just another show from either side. I've gotten so sick of talking about this garbage. Just forget it, guys. Waste away in lesser fights nobody cares about, ruin the goodwill boxing has built up, and then have the promoters whine later that boxing sure is in a rut again. HEY, WHA' HAPPENED?
