Taxes don't fight for the people T...

Floyd Mayweather isn’t the only big name boxer that has problems paying his taxes. Tax officials in the Philippines have filed a complaint against the boxer/congressman. Apparently, Manny failed to submit documents and now he has investigators taking a close look at his tax returns.

If there is enough evidence against Pacquiao then he could face up to 2 years in prison. This is on the heels of a March 1st deadline that came and passed as Manny failed to submit the proper documents despite getting notices and a subpoena.

Although Mayweather and Pacquiao have this in common, they will once again not be fighting each other. Mayweather will instead fight Miguel Cotto on May 5th and Manny Pacquiao will on Timothy Bradley on June 9th.
