MANILA, Philippines – The Department of Justice (DOJ) has junked the case filed by the Bureau of Internal Revenue (BIR) against boxing champion and Sarangani Rep. Manny Pacquiao.
In an eight-page resolution, the DOJ called it absurd to hold Pacquiao liable for neglecting to obey a BIR subpoena which he did not receive at all.
The DOJ agreed with the respondent that there was no valid service of the subpoena duces tecum upon him.
The Justice Department said the allegation of BIR Officer, Abdul Jalil J. Taratingan, that he personally delivered the subpoena in General Santos City, received by a certain Jocelyn Nebria, is contrary to Revenue Memorandum Order No. 88-2010 which requires for a personal service to the person being…Continue
Of all the things that seem to be in the way of a Mayweather Jr. vs. Pacquiao fight, and there are many, the boxing fans claim that Bob Arum of Top Rank is one of the primary causes of the inability of this bout to materialize.
While there has been, and possibly still is some bad blood between Top Rank and Mayweather Promotions (along with Golden Boy Promotions), it is the money that dictates the flow, and it’s the promoters who would ultimately secure a safe and financially care free life for their families’ future.

Cornelius "K9" Bundrage will return to the ring since losing his title to Ishe Smith earlier this summer. He will be facing Joey Hernandez in a IBF Title Eliminator. The winner will get to face Carlos Molina who defeated Ishe a few months ago on the Mayweather undercard. Goldenboy won the purse bid of only $11,000. K9 will earn 60% of that purse for a total of $6,600 while Joey will earn 40% which is $4,400. It's really shocking that the purse is so low because when K9 fought Ishe Smith they drew around 500,000 viewers.
K9 is not discouraged though. He states, "That purse bid is crazy, but this fight is more for the opportunity than the purse." K9 record stands at 32-5, 19KO's and Joey stands at 23-1, 13KO's. The fight will take place on Jan 24th at Fantasy Springs Resort in Indio, California as part of Goldenboy Live Fox Sports…
50 Cent didn't take long to fire shots at Mikey Garcia, as it looks like a match-up between him and Yuriorkis Gamboa is fading away. "Gamboa will kill Mikey Garcia" 50 said on Twitter to his millions of fans. "Don't call us out then get scared...Gamboa will take yo head off boy." 50 seems to want to put heat on Team Garcia to make a date with them when it's being rumored that they are looking in another direction. "Let's do it Jan. 25th in New York City."
Floyd Mayweather stated to David Mayo, that his decision on his next opponent,will be coming as soon as next week. Of course Mayweather acted as if he didn't know who Manny Pacquiao was, "Who?" when then name was mentioned by Mayo. "Next week, I'm looking forward to next week." Mayweather will return May 3th, 2014, at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. British boxer and former world champion Amir Khan is rumored to be the front runner for the bout, even though the masses doesn't believe Khan is a equal foe.
