The much-anticipated fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao has led to a lawsuit for one of the boxers. On Tuesday, May 5, just days after the match, boxing fans filed a class-action lawsuit against Manny Pacquiao and members of his promotion team for $5 million in damages. The lawsuit is a result of Pacquiao’s failure to disclose a shoulder injury before the fight. You can read more about the lawsuit here and here.
