Class Action Suit Filed In Pacquiao Not Disclosing Injury

A class action lawsuit was filed Tuesday on behalf of two Las Vegas residents seeking more than $5 million from Manny Pacquiao, his manager and his promoters for fraudulently concealing his injury before his fight against Floyd Mayweather.

The suit alleges that Pacquiao and his manager Michael Koncz, his promotional company Top Rank, its chairman Bob Arum and its president Todd du Boef, admitted that they knew of his shoulder injury after the fight, but failed to disclose it to the Nevada Athletic Commission, as required by law. They also kept it a secret from fans who bought tickets to the fight, purchased the fight on Pay Per View or even bet on the fight.
