Pacquiao's Winning Streak Continues; This W Is In Court

PacquiaoMosleyLAPC_Hogan22Editor Mike's take: people with dirt to hide do not usually go ahead with defamtion suits. Pacquiao is showing the same resolve fighting back against what he sees as smears as he does in the ring. But the bottom line at TSS is: we hope the lawyer-stuff finishes up, so Pacman and Mayweather can get in the ring. (Hogan)Today, a Nevada federal district court denied a bid to dismiss Manny Pacquiao's defamation lawsuit.  Pacquiao sued Oscar de la Hoya, Golden Boy's CEO Richard Schaefer, and Floyd Mayweather, and others for falsely accusing him of taking performance enhancing drugs. The defendants responded to the lawsuit by asking the judge to dismiss it, saying their statements were merely opinions. A federal judge disagreed, and the case will now go forward. 


Pacquiao is represented by Daniel Petrocelli and David Marroso of Los Angeles-based O'Melveny & Myers. Petrocelli said, ""We are extremely pleased with the Court's decision. Manny is looking forward to his day in court and to put an end to these irresponsible accusations."

READ! READ! READ! I guess the faders and fakers are looking good now. [That is sarcasm for those who may be slow on da dome center of figuring out in-coming rhetoric.] These suckas said that Da Manny "dropped the lawsuit because he is probably on Filipino steriods, the best in the world." HUM! GOCHA! That blind lady of justice is continuing to balance her scale. Da Manny will kick GBP's and Fam May's arses in the COURTS. And if the making-up-jive suckas develop some cojones and sign to fight, Da Manny will be knocking out "Lil Floyd" in less than six rounds. And I will feed Money May the A-side meth, so that he can walk through bullets. Too bad Da Manny is GONNA be dropping nukes, though. We Pinoys have not made any AAA-side meth yet that will make nukes "be bouncing off" (our arses). Hehehehehe! Holla!

i hate the court system in the usa, let me repeat i HATE it..i have been a single parent of a 12 year old boy since his birth, his real mom dipped and instead of her parents being helpful to me they took me to court for 4 years under the rules of this shiiit court system stealing 7 grand from me in money i spent on a lawyer to only have my rights as a human and a parent....my point, you can take anyone to court for anything these days and its ridiculous...i DO NOT agree with the slander from mayweather about pacs accomplishments and in honesty they just make floyd look more racist and jealous than he already has.. pac should take it out of floyd in the ring not in a court.....look how many baseball players who have been accused because many others have been caught with roids.....this fight shamefully will never happen.

Radam G says:

Sorry about your court problems, amayseng. But those Yankee courts have treated me fine. Maybe you didn't have a good lawyer and judge and should have requested a change of manuel. In those courts I won some PHAT MOOLA against corrupted promoters, commissions and a couple of alphabet sanctioning organizations. The game of boxing is big business -- a BIG ONE, where you need the courts, lawyers and judges. Anybody in boxing without a lawyer is either a small fry or a big fool. And as for Money May, he is very jealous of a ton of boxers and other things. But he is no racist. Enough said! Holla!

Isaiah says:

Man, I wish by some miracle chance Floyd Mayweather Jr. would come to this site and read this. Hey Floyd! You're a TERRIFIED piece of CHICKEN S##T! You're a DISGRACE to all boxers and men EVERYWHERE! Even your family members, whom are nothing but scandulous chumps trying to protect your soft self from the severe Manny butt whooping that would rain on you like fire in hell, EVEN they had the guts to face the best in boxing when they got whooped by Sugar Ray Leonard and a PRIME Oscar De La Hoya respectively. EVEN they have that much respect from me! YOU HAVE NONE YOU MAGGOT! When you die, your gravestone should only read of the men you ducked with Manny being at the top of the list so people until the Apocalypse will know of your COWARDICE. At your funeral, may everyone take turns spitting on your grave and dress your body in a chicken suit. Until your dying day, may you always know that Manny Pacquiao is SUPERIOR to you in EVERY WAY and you'll NEVER have the slightest bit of guts to EVER prove the fans wrong on that FACT. The bottom of your tombstone by the way should read, "undefeated because chickens run..."

I think Mayweather probably does have a bigger tool than Manny, though.

MayweatherTHEGOAT says:

Take a drug test and get $50,000,000!

MayweatherTHEGOAT says:

I've actually seen & own the emails that Teddy Atlas mentioned on Friday Night Fights. The is not B.S.! Pacroids people really did ask Golden Boy & Mayweather Promotions these questions "If Manny comes up hot , what would happen and if so could we keep it quiet for the sake of boxing" You people out there that don't know what I know and what Pacroid and his people know are being PLAYED FOR FOOLS! Pacroid is without a doubt on steroids. When this FACT is finally medically proven you can all apologize to and thank Floyd for opening your eyes!

the Roast says:

Hey now, wait a second there MayweatherTHEGOAT, we already have a guy "in da know" around here. And if you didn't know that, than ya aint in the know, you know?

Radam G says:

It is all moot about an email from Teddy Atlas. Fam Mayweather and GBP are gettin' their arses sued. And "Lil Flood -- I mean Floyd -- said that he will not fight Da Manny for less than a 100-million-dollar guarantee. This is the infamous way that Money May got out of the fight. Da Manny agreed to take the TEST. Some people just like to keep jive going. Bottomline, Money May doesn't want any part of Da Manny, and it is his choice. Da Manny would kayoed that bottom in six rounds or less. Then the fanfaronades, fakers and faders would have to fade to black. Holla!

the Roast says:

I'm with Radam on this. Floyd don't want none. Floyd can talk it but he won't walk it.

Real Talk says:

I say the court victory will be the only place team Pac gets a W over team May. Pac should keep fighting damaged goods and come forward zombie cats. He shoud stay away from Floyd, that will be his worst nightmare. Floyd has all the tools an if you don't get him in 4 ya dead in the water for sure. Closest thing Da Manny has gotten to fighting someone with Floyds level of skill is Marquez, and we all know whther we choose to admit it or not what happen in those fights. I celebrated when Pac one but when the final bell sounded I felt defeated cuz I was rooting for Pac. Marquez gave him a boxing lesson. Got dropped and wobbled and still came back and better young Pac. You can hate me for spittin the truth...it's your perrogitive. Pac has an arsenal speed, power, punches in bunches, stamina...you name it, but he hasn't been tested in a while against a true technician. Freddie Roach is trying to play mind games with Mosley. He wants Mosley to come straight at Pac saying Mosley is done and he can't box with Pac. That's what Roach wants, a fighter who comes straight at Pac like usual. Notice he had major problems with counter punchers like Marquez and Morales. I say Mosley's got one masterpeice left in him. If he takes him time and box, slow the fight down an make it more technical. Make Pac work hard to find him like Cotto when he had box for his life. The same formula he used on Margarito, bait him in, be first and tie him up, slow it down and pick your spots to rumble and keep touching him with the jab or the lead right and Pac will have a long night. Hey I go for the underdog, it's something in me. To those who're counting Mosley as done don't bet the house on it, and to those who claim Mosley is getting Ko'd put down the bong or the cup soldier LOL!!! We know better. Mosley has speed and Power in both hands. Dueces

Radam G says:

Wow! @Real Talk, you need to get with da haps and real talk, not the jive talk. Pops Joy May is even upset at "Lil Floyd" for coming up with every type of bulljive alibi not to fight Da Manny. Fighting fighters with "Floyd level" or without it, won't help anybody beat "Floyd." There is only one Floyd "Money May" Mayweather, and Da Manny wants him and will kick his arse. Money May knows what time it is. All fighters know who they can and cannot beat. There was only one Smokin' Joe Frazier. You could fight a million fighters at his level or not. It HELPED you NOT when you fought him. But guess WHAT! Smoke was made for BIG -- Big George Foreman's style of fighting. There was only one Tommy Hearns, but the Hitman's style was spot on for eternal arse-thrashings from Iran Barkley. Sugar Shane Mosley's style was made for the late Vernon Forrest. The Viper tagged that arse twice like ice in the amateurs, and twice more in the pros to make it nice. Big Money Oscar Dela Hoya's style could handle Sugar Shane. The Sugarman beat BMO twice in the amateur and twice more in the pros.

Bottomline, the smart fighter knows who he cannot beat and stays away from him, and run a con on his fanfaronades. Money May learnt this from the GOAT Ali. The GOAT Ali got kayoed in the amateurs by Kent Green and sparred with him in the pros, but didn't fight him because he knew the prospective outcome. The GOAT Ali said, To be da greatest, ya hav' ta be part con man -- know when ya' have met yo' match, but put on a play dat your're winning for da crowd and da judges. Those are da only suckas dat you have ta con[vince] for greatness and winning." How RIGHT the GOAT Ali is. He lost to Doug Jones once, Ken Norton three times, but he con[vince] those suckas dat he needed to con[vince] to get the win against D.J. and two against K.N. And when the world was demanding for the GOAT Ali to fight the jaw-breaking K.N. for a fourth time, the GOAT refused, quit working out hard and took on seven-fight-pro Leon "NEON" Spinks.

Wrapping this up, Money May knows who to con, and knows that they will always believe that he is da MAN. YUP! But -- for those in the know -- da TIN MAN! Da sucka oughta two-step stroll, head-drop fold and shoulder roll down dat "Yellow Brick Road" to the Emerald City, and ask the great and power Wizard for a HEART and some COURAGE of a non-cowardly lion! Hehehehehe! The only thing that Money May has, is a BRAIN of the Scarecrow! And that BRAIN is spot on for telling Money May to keep bullspitting his way out of a Pac-ARSE-WHUPPIN!' Money May's nuthuggers, groupies and fanfaronades may wanna get themselves some "Ruby Slippers," tap da heels of those suckas as many times as you like and say, "There is no fight like Money May versus THC Pera Pac." Now wake yo' arse up! Hehehehehehe! You were DREAMING muthastorm! It's gonna rain here in San Diego, Cali. I'm hanging with my peeps for a sec. Holla!

Isaiah says:

You Mayweather fans do know that Pacquiao agreed to that OSDT up to the day of the fight months ago, right? The LIARS can't keep their stories straight. Michael Kontz or whatever his name is said Manny only agreed up to testing within 7 days of the fight. Roger Mayweather said Manny agreed up to 5 days within the fight. Manny has said more than once that he agreed to a test anytime ALL THE WAY UP TO THE FIGHT and that was BEFORE what Roger said. Floyd Mayweather ADMITTED he was lying about team Pacquiao not agreeing to the 14 day cutoff date the first time around. I'm just saying that bottom line, Manny seems to me to be the most likely one telling the truth. NOW, little Floyd is demanding a payday of $100 million dollars (yeah, you read that right) to face Manny! $100 freaking million dollars! There's only so many excuses people can use Floyd fans. Do I have to spell it out for you?! Floyd is S-C-A-R-E-D!

@ Brother Radam G
I understand your radical fandom for the Pacman but I MUST drop this on you brethren. How you figure Pac KO's Floyd who has great defense, timing an INTELLIGENCE when he couldn't KO a weight drained Cotto who was dead after 6 rounds??? Floyd has the perfect spoiler punch for Manny...the lead right (smh). I know you know this! Floyd has a much better chin than Cotto, isn't a crash dummie like Cheato or Diaz, aint coming to the dance a Zombie like Oscar whom I respect, an isn't going to throw the fight like Clottey. Floyd can pot shot, move, be first , smother, rumble in the pocket and give Pac all kinds of problems. I think you're so much on a Pac high that you're overlooking the facts. Only thing I need Floyd to do is take a fight before that fight to sharpen his skills all the way from razor to scapel, an go to work like a surgeon. Everybody is thinking Pac is unbeatable like the Young George Forman, or a world destroyer like Sonny Liston. Everybody is mesmerize by the demolition work Pac has done to his last couple opponents an assume whoever gets in there is a victim. They thought the same thing about Tito Trinidad until he ran into the Master Boxer Scientist Bernard Hopkins....REMEMBER THAT??!?Everybody was counting the seconds until Tito caught him and watched one of the greatest boxing performances and lessons ever...a dismantling. There is no substitute for SKILLS and TECHNIQUE. That jab touches Pac it's like a reset button. Don't sleep on Floyd and when you go to bed tonight that the Most High that Floyd hasn't taken the fight and pray he doesn't, you won't like the results. LOL!!!!! Dueces

Okay! My last post was lost, so here I go again. The reality of the LOOK in boxing is stranger than fiction. Money May has been looking GOOD, because he has not fought any speed demons -- especially southpaw ones. Money May likes speed only for himself. Speed of another fighter has always caused him problems. Let me school ya, I wouldn't just ta fool ya! Money May lost to four speed-demon southpaws in the amateurs. Money May got cut up in his second or third fight by speedy southpaw Reggie Sanders. Holla at free-site Boxrec and read the result. ESPN has the film, but won't televise it on ESPN Classic for some reason. And every time that I would put that bout on YOUTUBE or Daily Motion, the powers that be would knock it down. And has since contacted me and told me to cease and desist or get ready for court.

Anyway, after that bout, Pop Joys May, who was in jail at that time, called Uncle Roger and told him never to put his son against a speedy southpaw again. Okay, Money May has beat southpaws in the pros. But he got hurt badly by Chop Chop and Super Zab knocked him down, but it wasn't counted. Bottomline, Money May has a paranoia of fighting fast-handed southpaws, because they mess up his delayed, slow-pace fighting game of timing and countering. Now, if he is up against Da Manny, he has to worry about fast hands, hard punches and fast feet. And besides, even though Uncle Roger is arrogrant as heck about how his nephew will beat Da Manny, he sees in sparring that Money May still cannot handle speedy, arkward southpaws who punches from all angles and not fight at da Money May pace. Money May is a control freak. Take that control from him, he fizzles.

C'mon Real Talk, Money May is like "Father knows Best." It's best not to take a chance and avoid the dance. Just keep the Money May fans and fanfaronades happy by bullspitting and fibbing. I give Money May BIG credit. He is a smart cookie and a learned student. Be the con man, and only worry about your own loyal audience and followers. Money May doesn't want any of Da Manny. Real Talk, no matter how you try to slice and dice it, this game is not known as PRIDEFIGHTING, but is prizefighting. Money May's latest is that he will fight Da Manny for 100mil, but if the money powers that be say okay, Money May will say that if they wanna do 100mil, they can do 150mil. As Pops Joy May has said, "My son is immature, and it is not him that keep ducking and dodging and bullsyeting. Somebody is tellin' him to do this, and I know who it is."

Money May doesn't wanna fight Da Manny, because Money May would get kayoed. I KNOW! I KNOW! I KNOW! Da Manny would not fight soft or SLOW! What to do, Money May would not KNOW! As he has said, he just wanna be the first black champion to retired undefeated and stay that way. So with that said, he won't fight Da Manny for any amount of PAY. Because Money May would be knocked da double fudge out on dat day. Bottomline, da Scarecrow -- I mean Money May -- doesn't want to hop up in dat squared jungle and play. It is his choice. And that is OKAY! He still can make some mean bucks by fighting the other cats out there. He would probably jump and fight and kick Sergio Martinez's amateurish-like fighting arse for 15 to 25mil. Of course, Money May will keep his fanfaronades happy by fibbing and tell them that he got 60mil, and doesn't need to fight Da Manny. "I make more money than him." Way ta go, Lil Floyd, fool those suckas. "One is born is every minute." Holla!

FighterforJC says:

It doesn't matter what Pacquiao or Mayweather could've would've done to each other. Any self -respecting Pacquiao fan should steer clear of such arguments because that's Mayweather's Mindless Minions-territory. That's ALL they got to live for, the would'ves and could'ves, and that's mighty good enough for them.

Real Talk says:

@ Radam G, interesting points you make. I want to see that fight. Holyfield said the same thing about Floyd having problems with speedy southpaws that punch in bunches. Pacquiao does have fast hands, fast feet and power, but Floyd has superior timing...this can not be ignored. I remember Floyd's glove touched the canvas in the Zab Judah fight. Bulldog and me were just talking about that fight an I remember Chop Chop wobbled him bad, but both times he dug deep and willed the win. Mosley rocked him tooan he's right handed From the fights I've watched Floyd seems more dangerous when he pressured. It makes him fight hard. Floyd seems to be stealing his opponents in the face instead of punching them after he gets buzzed...if you know what I mean. Kind of like Hopkins started doing to Pascal. If Mosley would've kept up the pressure Floyd would've KO'd him. Floyd will conserve energy kind of like Ali use to. It's like quicksand, the harder you fight the quicker you drown. I just don't see Manny KO'ing Floyd because Floyd will take his time an adapt to Pacquiao's style and if you don't get Floyd early or before the 4th rd. The master boxing begins. Floyd has the reach, fast hands, punches deceptively hard and would punch harder if he set on his punches more, but he picks and chooses when to do so. If this fight takes place it will slow down to that pace that suits the technician which favors Floyd. Put it like this, whoever dictates the pace will control the fight in my opinion. Hatton thought he had it in the bag but May was laying the trap and put him in the trick bag. As soon as Hatton over did it Mayweather started going to the body then the head. Hatton started fighting harder and sunk faster. Pacquiao trains like a demon an is a great champion but styles make fights an everyone can be beat. I think Floyd has the tools to do it...size, athleticism, intelligence, speed and skills. Hopefully we get to watch the fight of the century and get at least to meeting between the two. That would be great for boxing, that's what the Sweet Science is all about. Holla at brethren. Dueces

the Roast says:

@Real Talk, we would all love to find out. All Floyd has to do is sign his name on the dotted line. The lights go out, and Pacman starts to grind. Awww come back Pretty Boy, come back!!

Radam G says:

Ditto the Roast! I was going to say the exact same words. You know! Of course, for those in da know. Hehehehe! Holla!

the Roast says:

Damn straight Kid Rapido!
