5TH QUARTER MAGAZINE:
In a report by the Associated Press that was obtained by the Boston Herald, a federal judge has told Floyd Mayweather, Jr. to pay Manny Pacquiao a figure of about $114,000. This is a result of the defamation lawsuit that Pacquiao filed against Mayweather in regards to the whole performance-enhancing drugs situation. Mayweather is good at running his mouth and fueling up drama and was accusing Pacquiao of taking illegal substances. Pacquiao’s team decided to quiet the undefeated boxer through a defamation lawsuit.
Had these two boxers just settled their differences out in the boxing ring, that fight would have equaled the $114,000 in this case with about 1600 pay-per-view buys at $70 a piece. On the other hand, the $114,000 that Mayweather is ordered to pay Pacquiao is nothing. The undefeated boxer can rack up a cool $100,000 or more in one sports bet.
Aside from all that lawsuit talk, can we just see these two fight in the ring now?
