Pacquiao-Mayweather Fight Is Cancelled; Floyd Demand For Manny To Take A Blod Test Is A Slur

December 24, 2009

Now this a spoiler:

the cancellation of what had promised to be an epic battle between our own living boxing legend Manny Pacquiao and the undefeated former pound-for-pound champion Floyd Mayweather Jr.

The deal breaker was Mayweather’s last-minute demand the he and Pacquiao undergo Olympic amateur sports-stand doping tests, specifically blood tests.

Such test is intended to determine if an athlete had been taking performance-enhancing steroids or other substances.

Pacquiao has rightly considered Mayweather’s conditions as uncalled for,outrageous, and insulting given its implications.

It must be noted that professional sports anywhere n the world, including U.S. Major League Baseball, the NBA, and professional boxing, DO NOT impose such tests.

The American boxer’s demand is an all-too-obvious attempt to cast serious doubt both on the Filipino’s unquestioned speed and strength in the ring and on his integrity as a globally-admired sportsman.

Manny Paquiao is right not to agree to such unreasonable and under-handed stunt.
