Wow... I simply knew something was going to put the super boxing match between Floyd "Money" Mayweather and Manny "Pacman" Pacquiao in jeopardy. It was almost too good o be true.
I mean, the welterweight title bout scheduled for March 13 at the Las Vegas Grand is reportedly in huge jeopardy after news of steroid usage allegedly came from the Mayweather camp recently.
ESPN.com reported that Mayweather's father, Floyd Mayweather Sr., has repeatedly accused Pacman of steroid use because of his rapid success in different weight classes. Now, Pacquiao wants to sue the Mayweather camp and Golden Boy Promotions for defamation of character, which I think is bullshit. And, simply a reason to prolong that a$$ whupping.
"Enough is enough," Pacquiao told ESPN.com. "These people, Mayweather Sr., Jr.,and Golden Boy Promotions. They think this is a joke and a right to accuse someone wrongly of using steroids or other performance enhancing drugs."
The two sides can't seem to agree on the drug testing. Mayweather's camp is all for Olympic style testing, which would subject both fighters to random urine and blood test all the way up until the bout. Both sides have agreed on drug testing, but Pacman's camp is against it leading up until the March 13 fight, which is expected to be the highest grossing boxing match in HISTORY.
My question is: "WHY NOT?"
I really haven't thought too much about the possibility of Pacman using steroids or any other performance enhancing drug until now. It's really starting to look like somebody may be a little scared.
I really hope they square this away.
