Manny Pacquiao -- Witness in Boxing Dispute

1/6/2010 2:10 AM PST BY TMZ STAFF

Manny Pacquiao is fighting his way out of an extremely tough spot -- dude's been named as a witness in a nasty legal war between his legendary boxing trainer and two members of his famously tight entourage.

It's all over an alleged incident in 2008 at the L.A. gym where Manny trains. A male member of Manny's entourage claims he was threatened and viciously attacked by trainer Freddie Roach after he dropped Manny off at the gym. The alleged victim and his wife filed suit against Roach.

The trial is set to begin today and Manny is smack in the middle of the official "joint witness list" -- meaning he could be called to testify in the case.

Stay tuned ...

Boxing has fallen in line with fake wrestling. Whoever the promoter are seemed to be more focused on the pseudo drama then anything else.

crooked English    

pure02...what is straight english? maybe YOU can't speak "straight english" either. There are other languages in this world aside from English but maybe you just think the U.S. is the only country on earth. think before you speak because you might just saying something ignorant.

The only way to save the fight is for manny pedquaio to submit to blood tests! Because pedquaio is using human growth hormones to enhance his performance! He should stop using HGH if not, he should be banned from pro boxing, his name removed from official boxing records and all the money won returned!

PURE02, you probably can't speak a dime of proper English. So shut your rude, ignorant mouth and quietly move away from the computer.

Pacquiao is an Amateur on the Pacquiao vs Clottey fight.



But I think this is a staged fight. Arum a very good promoter has made millions believed that this is a real fight.



But do you think Clottey doesn't see any openings of Pacquiao? If he wanted to KO Pacquiao he can do so.



All I want to see is the Mayweather vs Mosley fight and the winner of this fight will fight Manny Pacquiao to prove who is the real #1 pound for pound.

The Mayweather vs Mosley fight is expected to get over 3 million PPV sales and more than the Pacquiao vs Clottey fight. Mayweather the more defensive fighter is the People’s Choice but let’s not take for granted the skills of Mosley.



Mosley has had big fights against dela Hoya, Margarito, Vargas and a lot more heavy punchers.



Mayweather on the other hand who has the reputation of choosing Light Punchers has also great defense. But defense doesn't make you win in boxing.



I predict a Unanimous Decision win for Mosley on May 1, 2010.

Could well be fight of the year, so far Pacquiao has shown he has never been afraid to stand toe to toe with every fighter he has faced.

Could he do this with a man of Margaritto stature.

That alone will be something to behold, small 5’6 guy fighting a 5’11 guy outweighing him by over a stone but the little guy is not just out boxing him he overpowering him, standing there and trading and making Marg take the backward steps and folding under the pressure.

Pacquiao is too goo for his own good, if Juan Diaz said he was going to take on Margaritto people would say it was a mammoth task and Diaz could well take a beating. This is the same Diaz who the same people say Pacquiao ducked.

This is going to be Pacquiao toughest fight and the Pacquiao vs Margarito could be FOTY
