Manny Pacquiao Sued For Allegedly Failing To Disclose Injury Before ‘Fight Of The Century’
Attorney Zach West of the Berman Law Group, a full service law firm servicing the entire state of Florida with main offices in Boca Raton, Stuart and Gainesville, files a class-action suit in the North District of Florida, case number 1:15-cv-00089-RS-GRJ, against Manny Pacquiao and the fight promoter Top Rank, alleging the camp failed to disclose the fighter’s shoulder injury ahead of the big fight Saturday, May 2nd in Las Vegas against Floyd Mayweather. The plaintiff in the case, Terrence Jackson, said, “The injury significantly affected the quality of the paid product.”
Pacquiao lost the bout via unanimous decision favoring Mayweather. According to court documents, in a post-fight press conference, Pacquiao said he injured his shoulder during training and asked for an anti-inflammation shot before the bout. The Nevada Athletic Commission denied his request.
The lawsuit alleges that neither Pacquiao nor his team informed the Nevada Athletic Commission about the shoulder issue until a couple of hours before the start of the fight when they asked for an anti-inflammatory injection. According to allegations in the lawsuit, when Pacquiao’s team filled out its pre-fight medical questionnaire on Friday, a query about any shoulder injury was marked “No” before the form was then signed by Pacquiao and his adviser
