Pacquiao vs Mayweather -- "he is rigging Boxing"

0701-manny-mayweather-tmz-twitter-01Manny Pacquiao's manager Bob Arum is declaring war on Floyd Mayweather's promoter -- claiming the guy is "rigging the boxing industry" ... and taking aim at everyone, including Jay Z ... this according to a lawsuit obtained by TMZ Sports
Arum's Top Rank boxing promotions company just filed a $100 MILLION lawsuit against Al Haymon -- who many consider the most powerful man in boxing. 
According to the suit, Top Rank claims Haymon has been using unsavory tactics to monopolize the boxing industry -- including illegally blocking fights, blocking venues and freezing out other promoters, including Top Rank and Jay Z's Roc Nation Sports company. 
Top Rank claims Haymon -- who "famously runs his empire from an old school flip phone" -- is leveraging his impressive client list (which includes Mayweather, Adrian Broner, Danny Garcia and more) to monopolize the boxing industry. 
For example, Top Rank claims Haymon cajoled one of his fighters -- Peter Quillin -- to turn down a $1.4 million payday  in 2014 (the biggest payday of his career) because Jay Z had won the right to promote the fight and Haymon didn't want to let Roc Nation get his foot.
