A pair of fight watchers on Tuesday filed a class-action suit against Manny Pacquiao and the fight promoter Top Rank, alleging the camp failed to disclose the fighter's shoulder injury ahead of the big fight Saturday night in Las Vegas against Floyd Mayweather.
The plaintiffs, Stephane Vanel and Kami Rahbaran, are seeking $5 million on behalf of themselves and more than 100 other ticket holders.
Legal representatives for Vanel and Rahbaran said the summons were issued on Tuesday and they will be served within the next couple of days.
Pacquiao's advisor, Michael Koncz, and Top Rank employees Todd DuBoef and Robert Arum are also listed as defendants in the lawsuit.
Koncz told the New York Daily News on Tuesday that it was he, not Pacquiao, who filled out the prefight medical questionnaire in which the injury to boxer's right shoulder should have been declared.
Top Rank's attorney, Daniel Petrocelli, said, "The lawsuit is completely frivolous. Nothing was concealed, and I expect it to be dismissed in due course. "
Pacquiao did not immediately respond to a request for comment sent via Twitter. The other defendants could not be reached for comment.
The bout, which was referred to as the fight of the century in the run up to the broadcast, was available for about $100 through HBO, Showtime and other pay-per-view platforms.
The event was projected to rake in as much as $300 million in domestic PPV purchases, according to an ESPN report.
CORRECTION: Ticket holders are suing Manny Pacquiao and fight promoter Top Rank for $5 million. The amount was misstated in an earlier version of this article.
