Mayweather Fails To Show Up For Court-Ordered Deposition In Pacquiao Case
Mayweather Fails To Make Court In Pacquiao Case
Floyd Mayweather was a no-show in court on Friday, for a court-ordered deposition in a case with fellow boxer Manny Pacquiao Case.
According to reports by Eurbweb.com:
A lawyer for boxer Manny Pacquiao says rival boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. failed to appear for a court-ordered deposition in Las Vegas in a federal civil lawsuit alleging that Mayweather defamed Pacquiao.
Attorney Daniel Petrocelli says Mayweather didn’t show Friday to provide sworn testimony despite federal Magistrate Judge Robert Johnston’s ruling Thursday that he must appear.
They argued Thursday that Mayweather needed to concentrate on training for a Sept. 17 fight against Victor Ortiz.
Petrocelli tells The Associated Press he’ll seek a default finding that Mayweather defamed Pacquiao with statements accusing Pacquiao of taking performance-enhancing drugs.
We’d much rather see Mayweather and Pacquiao meet in the ring, but at this rate, we won’t see them in the court either.
