April 22, 2015
The American Lawyer’s March 30, 2015, piece, “The Lawyers Behind the Mayweather-Pacquiao Bout,” details O’Melveny & Myers’ work on behalf of longtime clients Manny Pacquiao and Top Rank Boxing. Century City litigation partners Dan Petrocelli and David Marroso advised the boxer and promotor on negotiations for Pacquiao’s upcoming brawl with Floyd Mayweather Jr. on May 2, 2015. The publication notes that the Firm also handles the majority of litigation work for Top Rank and its fighters. Petrocelli recently represented Pacquiao in a defamation lawsuit against Mayweather over comments insinuating the use of performance-enhancing drugs. "Manny is such a talented individual, and it's been an honor to represent him over the years," Petrocelli said in the article.
