The recent negotiations between Bob Arum and Golden Boy Promotions in a potential super-fight have hit a bump. The main hold-up is Floyd Mayweather Jrs.’ demand that the fighters be subjected to random blood and urine testing for performance enhancing drugs. Such testing Mayweather is demanding to be done by the US Anti-Doping Agency, something that has never before been done in boxing.
Floyd Mayweather Sr. has openly accused Manny Pacquiao of using steroids. Pacquiao has never failed a drug test.
In a statement from the Phillipines Manny Pacquiao said “Enough is enough. I have tried to just brush it off as a mere pre-fight ploy but I think they have gone overboard. I say to Floyd Mayweather Jr. don’t be a coward and face me in the ring, mano-a-mano and shut your big, pretty mouth, so we can show the world who is the true king of the ring.”
Most consider Mayweather’s demand as a direct accusation that Pacquiao has used and is using steroids and other performance enhancing drugs.
Pacquiao has decided to file a civil lawsuit against Floyd Mayweather, Jr., Floyd Mayweather Sr., and Golden Boy Promotions. “I have instructed my promoter, Bob Arum, to help me out in the filing of the case as soon as possible because I have had people coming over to me now asking if I really take performance-enhancing drugs and I have cheated my way into becoming the No. 1 boxer in the world. I maintain and assure everyone that I have not used any form or kind of steroids and that my way to the top is a result of hard work and a lot of blood spilled from my past battles in the ring, not outside of it. I have no idea what steroids look like and my fear in God has kept me safe and victorious through all these years.”
