Manny Pacquiao KOs Floyd Mayweather ...In Court

By Brian Ethridge, Posted: 09/19/12 11:35AM EDT

Ladies and gentleman, it is official! Manny Pacquiao has successfully defeated Floyd Mayweather. Unfortunately, Pacquiao's victory didn't come in the boxing ring like most fight fans would have hoped. Instead, Floyd Mayweather has been ordered by a United States District Court Judge to pay the Filipino superstar and his legal team $114,292.60 for his failure to comply with a court order.

Accourding to the Courthouse News Service, when Mayweather was supposed to sit for deposition between June and October last year, he never showed. In a demand for sanctions last year, Pacquiao told the court that Mayweather was photographed at nightclubs across the country, dancing, drinking and burning money, all while claiming that he was too busy training.

"Mayweather decided that he, not the court, would determine if and when his deposition would take place," according to the motion. "Busy living the 'luxurious lifestyle non-stop,' 'pour[ing] champagne for [his] friends,' and keeping the company of 'attractive women,' Mayweather refused to be deposed. He disobeyed properly served deposition notices, filed specious 'emergency' motions, openly defied this court's order directing him to appear, and serially misrepresented his whereabouts to Pacquiao and this court. Exposing Mayweather's untruths was a massive - and expensive - undertaking."

Oh great, so not only is Floyd Mayweather too scared to stand toe-to-toe with Manny Pacquiao in a boxing ring, he's also scared to face him in court? Mayweather was so scared to even be in the same building as Pacquiao that he would rather pay over $100,000 just to avoid being in the same building as him.

Obviously this latest news in the Pacquiao vs. Mayweather saga only hurts our chances of ever actually seeing the two fight each other. At this point, the only way we ever see these two go head-to-head is if they both become broke when they're in their fifties.
