Manny Pacquiao Seeks Default Judgment in Mayweather Defamation Case

TMZ reports that Manny Pacquiao is now seeking a default judgment in his defamation case against Floyd Mayweather Jr and other parties, as Mayweather is allegedly continuing to come up with excuses to avoid deposition dates:

Manny filed the papers yesterday in Nevada as part of his defamation suit against Mayweather -- in which he claimed Floyd falsely accused Manny of using steroids.

According to the documents, Manny's camp offered up 24 dates for Floyd to be deposed -- but Mayweather kept coming up with excuses as to why he couldn't show up for any of them.

Manny claims Floyd often blamed his intense boxing training for the scheduling issues -- but says it's all BS ... because on many of the days Floyd said he was training, he was seen partying at various nightclubs in Vegas and Atlanta.

The suit was originally filed against Mayweather, his uncle Roger, his father Floyd Sr, and Golden Boy Promotions representatives Oscar de la Hoya and Richard Schaefer. Oscar and Schaefer were recently dropped from the lawsuit after de la Hoya offered a public apology, which has also led to their company again working with Top Rank to promote fight cards. But the Mayweathers are still on the hook, and at this point, the Pacquiao legal team is going ahead with trying to get the default, which they've threatened to do since June.

A default judgment would entitle Pacquiao to damages, of course, so this might make Mayweather drag himself into court, or it could be sort of what Mayweather would most prefer here: A fairly quiet end to the case that costs him only money and doesn't have him appearing in court.
