5TH QUARTER MAGAZINE:
As reported by the LA Times, boxer Manny Pacquiao has dropped the defamation lawsuit he filed against fellow boxer Floyd Mayweather, Jr. Apparently, the two boxers found a way to reach an agreement. This defamation lawsuit filed by Pacquiao and his team stems from accusations made by Mayweather regarding the use of performance-enhancing drugs.
Could this be the basis of getting an agreement done to get the two in the boxing ring? Hopefully this whole ordeal means they can finally have some respect and professionalism for each other and get a deal done. Having Pacquiao and Mayweather in the ring will go down as the most lucrative fight in recent history.
What the agreement exactly was to drop the defamation lawsuit is not clearly known. What is known is that the mega-fight is one step closer to happening.
