Insult to injury as Manny Pacquiao faces lawsuit

MANNY Pacquiao is facing a lawsuit, with two people in Nevada suing the fighter after the Nevada Athletic Commission said the Filipino did not declare his shoulder injury in a pre-fight questionnaire.

Pacquiao, said he did nothing wrong and a treatment plan on the rotator cuff problem had been worked out.

The duo alleges the boxer defrauded ticket buyers, television viewers and gamblers.

If Pacquiao is found guilty of that charge, the penalty for perjury could be a jail sentence of between one and four years, and a fine of up to $5000.

Meanwhile, Floyd Mayweather has said he is willing to face his rival once again.

"I will fight him in a year after his surgery," Mayweather told ESPN's Steve A Smith in a text.

Pacquiao, 36, is expected to be out of action for at least 12 months.
