Roger Mayweather, the uncle and trainer of six-time titlist Floyd Mayweather, continues to believe that eight-division champion, Manny Pacquiao, is taking performance enhancing drugs. Manny Pacquiao has already initiated a legal case, seeking compensatory and punitive damages for defamation of character, in December 2009.
The legal case names Roger Mayweather as a direct defendant. Other defendants include Floyd Mayweather Jr., Floyd Mayweather Sr., Golden Boy President Oscar De La Hoya and Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer. According to the lawsuit papers, the defendants allegedly damaged Pacquiao's image by making allegations that he was using performance enhancing drugs.
Despite the ongoing case, Roger continues to voice his beliefs and states that he's willing to confront Pacquiao's trainer, Freddie Roach, about the matter.
"My nephew will whoop his ass easy. He's already been knocked out anyway. He's already been knocked out twice at 105-pounds. How is this guy beating people down at 147, 150-pounds? Because he's on sh*t, that's how. I know. I'll say it to his trainer's face, who couldn't even fight himself," Mayweather told FanHouse.
