Pacquiao Refuses Olympic Style Drug Test

Floyd Mayweather’s camp has reported that Manny Pacquiao has refused olympic style drug testing that would take place within the 30 days prior to the fight scheduled for March 13th. For those unfamiliar with this sort of testing it not only consists of a blood analysis, but also random urin samples prior to and after the fight.

Pacquiao’s camp is claiming that the testing is unnecessary and that Manny should only have to pass the drug tests sanctioned by the Neveada State Athletic Commission. It looks like neither side is budging in what looked like a done deal.

My personal opinion is that Manny should just take the test and forget about all his superstitions about getting blood taken. His camp is saying that he feels as if it would weaken him. To me this doesn’t make sense seeing as how the sample is only a small amount of blood.  They have also stated that the Mayweather camp is asking that the test be implemented because they know Pacquiao is scared of needles. How can this be true? Doesn’y he have a bunch of tatoos on him? Why give up millions because of a drug test? Something seems a little fishy to me.

Leave a comment and let me know what you think. I want to hear what other people have to say on the matter.

This is the ESPN video that explains the situation in more detail.
