Championship boxer Manny Pacquiao wants to KO Floyd Mayweather Jr. in court!
After filing a defamation lawsuit against Mayweather for the undefeated boxer's allegations that Pacquiao has taken steroids, Mayweather has failed to show up in court 24 times!
Is Floyd "Money" Mayweather afraid he'll finally get beaten by another boxer or does he just not want to lose his nickname in a court ordered settlement, which may reportedly be as high as $10 million!
Floyd's camp has said the boxer was unable to show his face in court because of his obligations to his training for an upcoming fight, but Manny is "sick and tired" of waiting around.
In response, the plaintiff has submitted a motion for the judge to issue a default judgment in his favor and offered photos that show the defended partying it up on the days he was supposedly "training".
One of Pacquiao's lawyers told reporters on Thursday:
"(Mayweather's) lawyer has to respond to the motion, and the judge will need to decide. Judges can and do issue defaults against parties who do not obey their orders and won't participate in the discovery process according the rules. And you forfeit your opportunity to be a litigant when you defy the rules."
We're right there with Manny! If Floyd is going to open his big mouth and attribute another boxer's success to steroid use, he better be able to back it up in court!
