Court corners Mayweather

2011-06-17 09:05

New York - Floyd Mayweather has been ordered to begin giving testimony in a defamation case against him filed by Manny Pacquiao.

The American boxer is being sued over statements accusing the Filipino superstar of taking performance-enhancing drugs.

The two, considered the best fighters, pound-for-pound, in the world, have failed to reach terms on what could be the richest bout in boxing history.

Federal magistrate Judge Robert Johnston denied an emergency motion on Thursday that would have allowed Mayweather to delay testifying.

He was ordered to start testifying in Las Vegas on Friday, June 17.

Mayweather claimed he needed to concentrate on his September 17 fight against Victor Ortiz.

Mayweather also faces felony charges stemming from a domestic argument and misdemeanour harassment and battery charges in separate cases.

    Floyd Mayweather is a yellow coward, with no balls, because he knows that Pacman will punish him for 11 rounds, and then knock him out. Mayweather has zero chance against Pacman!!!
