FLOYD MAYWEATHER JR. DEFIES COURT ORDER

LAS VEGAS, NEV. (June 17, 2011) – This morning, Floyd Mayweather, Jr. refused to appear for a court-ordered deposition in the defamation lawsuit filed by pound-for-pound champion and Congressman Manny Pacquiao in a Las Vegas federal court. Mayweather tried to postpone the deposition last minute, but Federal Magistrate Judge Robert Johnston denied his request and ordered Mayweather to appear for deposition today. Mayweather did not appear.

Pacquiao's attorney, Daniel Petrocelli of O'Melveny & Myers, said, "Mr. Mayweather maliciously leveled false accusations about Mr. Pacquiao. We are anxious to examine him under oath about those statements. He is just dodging his deposition because he is afraid to testify, but he has no right to defy a Court Order."

Wow the only thing I can say is... I hope the fight with Ortiz doesn't become jeopardized...the last time this happended his lawyers were there to facillitate an agreeable compromise.... Personally I'd tell Floyd to just say.. "I'm Sorry"..... are you satisfied now.... DAMN!.... actually I have much more to say... but it's friday and I have to be elsewhere... the favored night of wage slaves like myself. peace.

Money May's not appearing is the ruse that he is using to get outta of this arse thrashing with da Vicious One. For the border, Money May is now on da run. Wow! Maybe he is as serious about boxing as a hen is to letting a wolf just stroll right up in the hen house. Holla!

the "ducking"(for lack of a better term) of the deposition hearing could potentially allow Pac's side to win by default. It also reduces Floyds chances of securing an appeal if he doesn't like the verdict. They can't issue a warrant for his arrest but if he loses and doesn't provide his end of the settlement it could mean years of Lien Holds, Collections, and Frozen Assets.

Perhaps this is Floyd's intent, to lose on his own terms knowing that if this trial took its natural course he would take a beating outside the ring that can only be equaled by the kind of beating Pacquiao will give him in the ring. If he loses by default, Floyd can go around mouthing off how he was "victimized" by the government or what have you, and that he didn't get his fair shake.

Well.... that's Floyds' issue now, there were a lot of things that could have been done before events got to this point or at least certain preparation he could have subscribed to....... My only concern now is that the legal proceedings doesn't hinder the Ortiz fight. I'm very much looking forward this scrap..it's going to be more competitive than the press is giving it credit for...May even have to go to Vegas to see it personally...... .VIVA LAS VEGAS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I'll ask my Butcher if he wants to come with me.. he's Filipino and is crazy about Pac as well as being an avid Floyd fan.. always ribs me about Mayweather when he's weighing out my fish purchases.......we never get too serious about our predictions.... it's only boxing.
