Fans are still angry at the much-hyped fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather.
This time, they are taking their grievances to the court, specifically addressing the notion that Pac Man fought even though he was hurt.
Stephane Vanel and Kami Rahbaran are suing the boxer for $5 million, stating that they felt cheated out of Manny’s performance. Filed in Las Vegas, the suit says, it was filed ”on behalf of all persons who purchased tickets; purchased the pay-per-view event; or who wagered money on the event.” Promoters Bob Arum, Top Rank Boxing and are named in the law suit.
According to TMZ, there is another class action move against the Filipino pugilist.
4:55 PM PT — Pissed off fans are coming out of the woodwork now — a 2nd class action suit was filed against Pacquiao in Los Angeles … TMZ Sports has learned.
It’s pretty much the same as the Nevada suit, but the plaintiffs in L.A. have included Mike Tyson as exhibit A the fight was crap. They point out Iron Mike called it “the Dud of the Century.”
They’re also looking for at least $5 million.
Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather have both indicated that they would be willing to fight again next year, after Manny’s rotator cup is fully healed. In theory, if Floyd stayed undefeated, that would be his 50th win. Floyd is contractually set to fight again in September.
Here is Manny’s pre-fight health interview.
