Kelley | Uustal Files Fraud Lawsuit Over Mayweather Pacquiao Fight

Days after boxing’s highly touted Fight of the Century, Kelley/Uustal filed a lawsuit on behalf of a Palm Beach resident - and other plaintiffs who paid for the fight - alleging unjust enrichment, breach of contract, and fraudulent concealment, among other claims. The lawsuit was filed against Manny Pacquiao, Top Rank Inc., and DirecTV.

The lawsuit - which was filed Tuesday May 5th in Broward Circuit Court - is centered on the post-fight revelation that Pacquiao had a shoulder injury leading up to the May 2nd bout, yet lied on the medical form he signed under oath prior to the match. The lawsuit is alleging that had Pacquiao disclosed his pre-existing injury, the Nevada Athletic Commission would not have allowed the fight to take place.

With a fight worth hundreds of millions of dollars, multiple parties involved in the production of the fight had financial incentive to make it happen - despite it coming at the price of misled consumers. Plaintiffs in the lawsuit are seeking class action status for what they believe amounts to fraud.
