Boxers Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao have yet to step into the ring to do battle, but the Pacman has already scored a victory. A Nevada judge ordered "Pretty Boy Floyd" to shell out over $113,000 in legal fees and court costs to Pacquiao. This ruling was made this past Monday, September 17th.
The situation ignited a few years ago when Mayweather accused Pacquiao of using performance-enhancing drugs. Manny denied those claims and ultimately sued Floyd for defamation in September of that same year. Floyd's claim, along with other reasons, is why the two have yet to lace up the gloves and engage in combat.
Floyd continually ignored Pacquiao's request to appear in court. He was even reported to have burned several $100 bills in a nightclub instead of making a court appearance. "Exposing Mayweather's untruths was a massive – and expensive – undertaking," read a portion of the court's decision.
Could this prove to be detrimental to the chance of a fight between the two boxing greats happening?
