Comments Thread For: Insider Notebook: Victor Ortiz, Golden Boy, Chavez, More
By Robert Morales - Although Manny Pacquiao agreed to a settlement regarding his defamation lawsuit against Golden Boy Promotions executives Oscar de La Hoya and Richard Schaefer, the same is not true for Floyd Mayweather, Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Roger Mayweather.
The five were named in the suit filed in December 2009 in Nevada District Court. It claimed remarks they made suggested Pacquiao was using performance enhancing drugs.
"The lawsuit, just for purposes of clarity here, continues against all the other parties," Pacquiao's hot-shot attorney, Daniel Petrocelli, said Wednesday. "All the Mayweathers. It was resolved only with respect to the Golden Boy parties."
Petrocelli was asked whose idea it was to come to the settlement with De La Hoya and Schaefer.
"I don't feel like discussing how we got there because there is a confidentiality agreement," Petrocelli said.
The settlement, reached Tuesday, came with a statement from de la Hoya and Schaefer that basically said they were sorry if their remarks were taken to mean that they believed Pacquiao was on PEDs.
"Manny was satisfied with the terms and Golden Boy issued the public statement," Petrocelli said.
Petrocelli would not say if money was involved in the agreement. [Click Here To Read More]

If the Collazo fight isn't considered a test for Berto... What is?
If you think Ortiz' combinations and inside fighting would be easy work for anyone, you will end up being surprised.
As soon as Khan's footwork slows down, he's going to have to stand toe to toe with Ortiz on the inside (Ortiz has some of the best combinations and one of the best lead hand uppercuts in boxing). Bradley would have a ton of trouble against Ortiz too. Ortiz with his stamina, speed, power, southpaw stance, mental strength, and determination is a problem.
