Filipino fight sensation Manny Pacquiao has not yet faced American unbeaten fighter Floyd Mayweather in the ring, but Pacquiao has already scored a victory over Mayweather. Pacquiao, who sued Mayweather last year for defaming him, got the verdict in his favour. A federal judge ruled that Mayweather should pay $113,000 to Pacquiao for failing to provide deposition for the suit.
“Calling a professional athlete a cheater is the most serious charge one can make,” was a statement from Pacquiao’s lawsuit. “Accusing an athlete of using performance-enhancing drugs – however baseless and lacking in evidence – is toxic.”
