Manny Pacquiao being sued by fans
According to a story broke by TMZ and a legal document obtained by the organization as well, boxer Manny Pacquiao is being sued by fans who felt they were cheated of a better performance this past Saturday night against Floyd Mayweather Jr., because the fighter disclosed an injury that kept him from performing at peak level.
Manny Pacquiao and his fight promoters have been hit with a class action lawsuit by people who claim he screwed fans, Pay-per-view buyers and gamblers out of serious money by not disclosing his shoulder injury before the Mayweather fight.
TMZ Sports has obtained the lawsuit filed in federal court in Nevada … in which Stephane Vanel and Kami Rahbaran are suing on behalf of a class that feel cheated. See the report here
In the suit, Vanel and Rahbaran claim they are fighting “on behalf of all persons who purchased tickets; purchased the pay-per-view event; or who wagered money on the event.”
The plaintiffs are suing Pacquiao, Bob Arum, Top Rank Boxing and others for consumer fraud — and they’re demanding at least $5 MILLION in damages.
