While the rumors of Manny Pacquiao having financial troubles has been floating around, there are now reports that Pacquiao is suing his former accountants VisionQwest Group according to TMZ.

Pacquiao was originially sued for not paying for services rendered. In his countersuit Pacquiao alleges VisionQwest Group gave him “substandard accounting and tax service” Pacquiao hired lawyer Dan Petrocelli who reigned victorious over OJ Simpson in his civil trial.

More and more lately we’ve been hearing of athletes having financial troubles, Terrell Owens and now Pacquiao, sooner or later athletes are going to have to be more hands on when it comes to their finances. Considering Pacquiao is also a congressman in the Philippines you would think he would’ve found somebody to keep his finances in order. Hopefully he doesn’t end up like other boxers fighting well past their prime just to get a check.

Off all the people I wouldn’t want to run into when committing a crime, Mike Tyson would probably be tops on the list. Well a lucky Las Vegas criminal got away unscathed after breaking into Iron Mikes room.

According to TMZ.com Iron Mike went back to his hotel room on New Year’s Eve after attending the Stevie Wonder and rapper Eves’ concert. After the champ and his family were sleeping comfortbaly, some idiot broke in to his room hoping to leave with something more than empty pockets.

After hearing some ruffling noises and seeing the light, Mike arose to see what was going on. By this time, the intruder already left, saving himself the beatdown of his life.

A rep for the hotel told TMZ,

“We have received a report of an incident that is currently under investigation. As always, guest safety is of the utmost importance.”

How lucky of a guy do you have to be after breaking in Mike Tyson’s’ room to survive. If only Michael Spinks had similar luck in the ring.

For old time’s sake, below is a video of Mike Tyson destroying Micheal Spinks. Enjoy.

Say what you want, but Floyd Mayweather is the truth and he showed it tonite. After being in complete control of the fight, Mayweather knocked out Victor Ortiz in the 4th round. After being head butted by Ortiz the fighters touched gloves, Ortiz left his hand down and eyes of Mayweather and Floyd commenced to throw a two piece combo that put Ortiz to sleep before he hit the canvas. Was it dirty? I say no, in a fight you never take your eyes off the opponent, and protect yourself at all times. Ortiz did neither and paid the price. If you didn’t see the fight, below is the heabutt and subsequent destruction that let to Ortizs’ demise.
