Pacquiao failed to disclose a shoulder injury before the Las Vegas bout

Two boxing fans have filed a class-action lawsuit against Manny Pacquiao for failing to disclose a shoulder injury before his defeat by Floyd Mayweather.

The 36-year-old will spend up to a year on the sidelines as he prepares to undergo surgery on his torn rotator cuff – an injury that he failed to disclose before his mega-fight with Mayweather on May 2 in Las Vegas.

ESPN reports that Nevada residents Stephane Vanel and Kami Rahbaran are suing on behalf of ‘all persons who purchased tickets; purchased the pay-per-view event; or who wagered money on the event’.

Pacquiao’s pre-fight questionnaire which shows he did not disclose his shoulder injury

Prior to his bout with Mayweather, Pacquiao signed a pre-fight questionnaire without revealing his injury.

Earlier on Tuesday, Sportsmail obtained a copy of the document and although it shows that Pacquiao was taking several painkillers, the word ‘No’ is marked next to the question: ‘Have you had any injury to your shoulders, elbows, or hands that needed evaluation or examination?

Subsequently, Vanel and Rahbaran are seeking more than $5m (£3.2m) from Pacquiao, his manager Michael Koncz and his promoters Top Rank for fraudulently concealing his injury before the big fight.
