Manny Pacquiao

Manny Pacquiao's  signed a medical questionnaire indicating he had no shoulder injury. 

The pre-fight hype surrounding the mega fight between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao got ugly at times as the two combatants attempted to get into each others' heads. However, it may not compare to the ugliness surrounding the Pacquiao camp in the days after the 36-year-old lost to Mayweather by unanimous decision Saturday.

After the fight, Pacquiao revealed he had been fighting with a shoulder injury. Most boxing fans didn't pay too much attention to it, believing he was making excuses for the loss.

But that changed Monday when Pacquiao announced he will have surgery to repair a torn rotator cuff in his right shoulder. It will keep him sidelined for at least nine months

Pacquiao and his camp kept the injury a secret until after the fight, which could end up being a problem for him legally.

Before the boxing match, Pacquiao signed a medical questionnaire "under penalty of perjury" at the weigh-in with a check mark "No" next to the question, "Have you had any injury to your shoulders, elbow, or hands that needed evaluation or examination?"

Pacquiao could face disciplinary action, including fine or suspension, for not accurately answering the questionnaire.

For those who watched Saturday's boxing match between Floyd Mayweather and Manny Pacquiao, would you have still paid money to see it if you knew how serious Pacquiao's shoulder injury was?

Also in question is if Pacquiao owed it to the fans who paid to watch what was billed the “Fight of the Century,” to disclose the shoulder injury before they shelled out money to see him take on Mayweather.
