Manny Pacquiao Pleased With Mayweather Settlement

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

Although details of the settlement involving the defamation lawsuit filed by “Fighter of the Decade” Manny Pacquiao against Floyd Mayweather Jr, his father Floyd Mayweather Sr and Mayweather Promotions remain confidential, Pacquiao is satisfied that the litigation has ended.

Pacquiao’s top-notch lawyer David Marroso told BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard “Manny is pleased with the agreement (and now) he’ll be able to foscus on his boxing career, his congressional duties, charitable activities and other pursuits.”

Atty. Marroso also paid tribute to retired Judge Daniel Weinsteing who, he said, “was instrumental in getting the matter resolved.”

Pacquiao’s adviser Michael Koncz told us that there was an agreement among the key members of Team Pacquiao on the settlement but indicated there was no discussion on the possibility of a Mayweather fight being tied-up to the agreement.

Koncz said “we don’t have any litigation but I don’t know whether that makes Mayweather feel better” and would help move talks on a possible Pacquiao-Mayweather fight sometime in the first half of next year.

But before anything else Pacquiao will have to beat Mexican legend Juan Manuel Marquez when they clash for the fourth time at the MGM Grand Garden Arena on December 8 following three close fights with the third fight where Pacquiao won a majority decision considered the most controversial.

Koncz who appeared on the All Time Great radio show was quoted by boxing writer Chris Robinson in which Koncz  said “Neither of these fighters want to have number five so I believe both of the guys are going to change their strategyand theree’s going to be a lot more aggression because they both want to put an end to this trilogy and I strongly believe somebody is going to knock somebody out.”

Marquez continues to claim he won all three fights but was robbed of the decision by the judges even as he requested the Nevada State Athletic Commission to appoint a Mexican, a Filipino and a  non-Nevada judge for the December 8 showdown.

NSAC executive director Keith Kizer noted that the first Pacquiao-Marquez fight had two non-Nevada judges, their second had one and the third, which turned out to be the most controversial, had no non-Nevada judges.

At the same time Kizer said “I have no idea how many non-Nevada judges Pacquiao-Marquez four will have.”

You know, I haven't been paying attention the settlement because, after reading several posts here, I assumed Mayweather was told to give Pacquiao some obscene amount of money. Wait a minute...they settled before going to trial? You mean to tell…

[QUOTE=voneric;12561276]Would be a great matchup and would be the first time in MayweatherJrs career that he took a fight where he is not the overwhelming favorite. ...history has shown that Mayweather will only fight when his opponent has no chance…
