Mayweather Pacquiao Fight Dead

Pacquiao Mayweather Fight Dead

This just in, Boxingtalk.com has received word from Bob Arum just moments ago stating the fight was off.

“Richard Schaefer and Al Haymon tried to get the Pretty Boy to make the deal, but he didn’t want to and I’m not surprised. Floyd Mayweather never wanted to fight Manny Pacquiao, my friend. Scientists were brought in to explain to Mayweather how protected he was.”

But it was all for naught. Mayweather, despite his own promoters trying to convince him, has refused to accept the final terms. He feels random blood and urine testing for Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDs) up until fight night is the only way to ensure a fair fight. Manny has agreed to random urine up until the fight, but only three blood tests no sooner than 24 days before fight night. This deal-breaker from Floyd comes despite the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) stated that human growth hormone testing works better through urine, not to mention the complete lack of precedent for such a request in the history of boxing.

Oh well, perhaps cooler heads will prevail this Fall, and the fight can happen then.

    I am confused. Pac wants Floyd tested everyday or the opposite. And tested for what, steroids?
