Floyd Mayweather Jr.

Ordered to Pay Pacquiao

0919-mayweather-pacquiao-tmzFloyd Mayweather Jr. has been ordered to pay Manny Pacquiao $113,774 in a defamation lawsuit -- in which Pacquiao says Floyd falsely accused him in 2009 of using performance-enhancing drugs.

The $114,000 is a penalty the judge levied against Floyd for failing to attend a court-ordered deposition in the case, and will go towards paying Pacquiao's attorneys' fees and costs. It does NOT mean Floyd lost the case.

Mayweather was ordered to sit for the deposition between June-October last year, but he never showed ... insisting he was too busy training. Pacquiao fired back, claiming Money May was lying about being too busy ... because he was photographed flitting around the country and partying in nightclubs.

Pacquiao argued he deserved to win the case on that basis alone, but the judge rejected his request.

The case, which is now nearly 3 years old, will continue to move forward.

I hate Mayweather so much and im still waiting for somebody to beat his face in. He is such a sell out ****y jerk and so over paid.

Pacquiao sue his ass then beat his ass in the ring. Good strategy get this guy mad first so you can break him for the fight. Mayweather will go down and stop making millions of dollars for boring fights.

Manny know Floyd would whoop his ass. Why wouldn't he take a drug test? And he is suing. It's too late for him to be tested now. What a loser. Floyd was gone beat you to a pulp. The first step to recovery is admitting. Lol

50 is going to steal that money and take it right back to his boy Floyd. (sarcasm) It seems strange how 50 jumped ship at the perfect time. He probably told Floyd "it's just business.Nothing personal".
