Manny Pacquiao is enduring much more than any normal pounding in a boxing ring as he faces a series of legal and personal problems including: a pending investigation from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, fan lawsuits, his rival bashing him publicly and a shoulder surgery. However the Christian Filipino fighter declares he will not falter in his faith.
Pacquiao, the 36-year-old boxer and politician, lost in a unanimous decision to Floyd Mayweather Jr., 38, on May 2, and his team later revealed that he had been suffering from a shoulder injury that was aggravated early in the fight. Pacquiao underwent surgery to repair his torn rotator cuff last Wednesday, but a number of people were more concerned with filing lawsuits in the hope of a payout from the pugilist who they accused of committing fraud.
The fighter checked "no" to inquiries about an injury on a pre-fight questionnaire, which some pay-per-view and ticket buyers believe Pacquiao purposely did in an attempt to make millions in a fixed fight he was in no physical shape to win. more >>

After giving away Game 1 to the Bulls, LeBron James and the Cavaliers bounced back big as they took Game 2 from Chicago who were aiming for a 2-0 lead coming to their home court for Game 3.

James was phenomenal in their second matchup, scoring 33 points and not minding the sticky defense by the recently crowned Jimmy Butler, NBA's Most Improved Player this season.
