This was well before Floyd had turned professional.
The fact remains there are already commission penalties put in place that all sanctioned fighters adhere to, state by state, as well.
Bull****...Ray and Hearns took roid tests before and the Monday AFTER the fight. Holy took a roid test AFTER the fight with Tyson.
Again....PAC agreed to RANDOM Testing...that was never the issue....the issue was the stipulation that Floyd wanted in his testing protocol that required blood testing up to the day of the fight.
Manny agreed to random urine testing ALL the way up to the fight without hesitation.
The weight penalites in place by the state athletic commissions are fine...but when a fighter blatantly misses weight....then a bigger penalty might prevent a similar situation from happening again.
