Since his impressive victory against Brandon Rios, Manny Pacquiao has had a rough few weeks as he battles tax issues. But recently the Pacman got a victory in US Federal court.

The US Court of Appeals for the Fifth Circuit has dismissed a multimillion dollar lawsuit brought on by Texas promotional company Imperial Ed Promotions.

The company’s lawsuit claims that Pacquiao failed to appear at promotional events in 2010 however, Pacquiao claimed he was never paid for the events.

Pacquiao’s legal team had also argued that the person they signed a contract with was different from the person suing him.

Imperial Ed then responded by saying the company had changed hands.

However the courts had ruled that Imperial Ed had also tried to submit fraudulent documents to support their claim.
