We have filed this lawsuit on behalf of boxing fans and enthusiasts from all over the world who believe that they have been misled and to preserve the integrity of the sports of boxing.
Los Angeles, California (PRWEB) May 29, 2015
The Filipino Law Group announced today that it has filed a lawsuit against Top Rank, Inc.; Bob Arum; Michael Koncz; and Freddie Roach. The lawsuit alleges that Manny Paquiao’s team intentionally concealed a torn rotator cuff injury and misrepresented that Pacquiao was 100 percent physically fit to fight, resulting in fraud in the Pacquiao vs. Floyd Mayweather boxing match in Las Vegas on May 2,2015.
Pacquiao himself is not listed as a defendant in this case.
The lawsuit was filed in the Superior Court of California for the County of Los Angeles-Central District. The case number is BC581363.
“We have filed this lawsuit on behalf of boxing fans and enthusiasts from all over the world who believe that they have been misled and to preserve the integrity of the sport of boxing,” said Attorney Ed Lopez.
According to court documents, the attempt to conceal Pacquiao’s injury is evidenced by Koncz’s act of indicating to the Nevada State Athletic Commission on a pre-fight questionnaire that Pacquiao had no shoulder injury.
The lawsuit argues that the team’s promotion of Pacquiao as fight-ready resulted in false advertisement, prohibited against by California’s Deceptive Advertising Practices under the Business and Professions Code section 17500 et seq., and was considered Unfair Competition Practices under the Business and Professions Code section 17200.
