As the drama continues to unfold in the negotiations for a potential superfight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr., Pacquiao fires back today telling Floyd Mayweather Jr., and his promoters Golden Boy Promotions “they should be man enough to own up to their own words,” referring to several interviews and statements in which Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Oscar de la Hoya accused Pacquiao of using “roids” or performance enhancing drugs.
“I can’t believe these guys can lie without batting an eyelash and they would even make it appear that I am the culprit for the delay of the fight and saying that I don’t want it to happen,” Pacquiao continued. The negotiation hit a snag when Mayweather demanded unprecedented random blood testing up to the day before the fight. This is something that has never happened in boxing history.
“They all went on the record, and there is no denying as to who is lying or not. For including my country in the picture, claiming that we are producers of the best performance enhancing drugs, Mayweather and those who are guilty need to get punished, the sooner, the better, whether it be in the courts or in the ring,” as Pacquiao’s lawyers are preparing defamation and slander lawsuits against the Mayweather’s, Oscar de la Hoya and Golden Boy Promotions.
The ironic twist is that Golden Boy Promotions owns a piece of Pacquiao promotional royalties. For every Pacquiao fight, Golden Boy Promotions gets a percentage of the revenues. “Again, all we need to see are the other recorded transcripts of what they said in websites and blogs. It is a pity that Oscar “Golden Boy” Dela Hoya’s Golden Boy Promotions should have been supporting me, too, because his company has a promotional stake in my career. They all say they got my back, but yes, they stab me, too, when I turn my back,” said Pacquiao.
Pacquiao has never tested positive for any type of drug, performance enhancing drug or any other illegal substance. “I want to put this on the record again, that I will abide by the Nevada State Athletic Commission requirements like in all of the fights in boxing history, including all of my fights. In all my years of fighting, I have never tested positive for any steroids or performance enhancing drugs (PEDs) use. I will provide any specimen, whether it be blood or urine samples, just right after the fight but not a day or two before, for obvious reasons. That should stop these clowns from asking for other drug testing procedures other than the ones already required by the NSAC.”
