Pacquiao seeks default judgement in Mayweather Defamation Case

Mayweather Defamation Case
After discussions of the possibility of the Pacquiao vs Mayweather fight, misunderstandings burnt both parties. Mayweather's side stated many accusations on Manny Pacquiao that aims to defame him. Manny have to take a step in order to stop this worthless accusations of Mayweather himself. He decided to file a 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 (Mayweather) accused Manny of using some kind of a performance enhancing drug, commonly known as steroids. According to the documents, Manny's camp offered up 24 dates for Floyd to be deposed - but Mayweather kept coming up with excuses and chose not to show up for any of them. 

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. De la Hoya and Schaefer were recently dropped off the case after de la Hoya himself offered a public apology. 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 judgement would entitle Pacquiao to damages, which have been the gossip this past few months. A fairly quiet end on the case that costs him (Mayweather) only money and doesn't have him appearing in court.
