Exclamation Mayweathers backs down on steroid accusations in settlement with Manny Pacquiao

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]
"Floyd Mayweather Jr., Floyd Mayweather Sr., Roger Mayweather and Mayweather Promotions wish to make it clear that they never intended to claim that Manny Pacquiao has used or is using any performance enhancing drugs, nor are they aware of any evidence that Manny Pacquiao has used performance enhancing drugs.

Manny Pacquiao is a great champion, and no one should construe any of our prior remarks as claiming that Manny Pacquiao has used performance enhancing drugs."

In short, the Mayweathers have been forced to recant -- in a way, since they're saying they never intended to say that Pacquiao used performance-enhancing drugs, even though they definitely did -- and offer this position publicly as part of the settlement.

It's no surprise, but certainly notable, given the history between the two sides and the fact that the Mayweathers have indeed accused Pacquiao of using steroids or other PEDs in the past. This is pretty similar to what Golden Boy did not long after the suit was filed in order to get out of it.

"The matter has been resolved," LaVergne said. "Any alleged terms of the resolution would be strictly confidential. Floyd Mayweather Sr. is very happy that this lengthy case has finally come to a conclusion."

Quite right as well, it was a very serious allegation with no proof whatsoever. Now maybe Floyd will be shamed into actually fighting the guy now he has no excuse for not doing so.

We shall see what happens in the next couple of weeks, I wouldn't be surprised if Mayweather sr accuses Pacquiao again.

Even though, lets say if this fight does happen mid next year, it has lost it's hype.

He never really did better vs JMM ever, he got outboxed much more comprehensively by JMM in their first bout. Also consider JMM was juiced to the gills for the 3rd bout, so not too bad for Pac. But then Pac went on to dominate undefeated p4p Bradley, pretty good for a washed up midget without PEDs.

Pacquiao looked good against a Younger, Prime & Undefeated Timothy Bradley with MOST Boxing websites, writers & fans have it for Pacquiao.

That's why The Ring, Boxing Scene still has Pacquiao at #1 at Welterweight.

Where have you been?

Pacquiao is willing to do a Blood test close, on the night, after the fight.
45-55 split.

Testing isn't an Issue.


Last time Mayweather TKO'd was Hatton which was 5 years ago.
Pacquiao did a better job though, Knocked out Hatton in Round 2 and was fighting in his comfortable weight.
(jr welterweight)

A 1 dimensional one, no less. It's amazing how this 1 dimension carried him over 7 weight classes, eh.

Really don't see the big deal, the whole episode was pointless. Floyd didn't even bother turn up to court to busy betting on football games to give a damn about pac's lawsuit.


As for the apology another pointless gesture as floyd in several interviews has already said he didn't say pac was on PEDS and that pac is a great fighter, whilst also suggesting in other interviews pac is on PEDS and is a cheat.

So no need to get excited about this gesture it's a very empty one at best.

Top 10 p4p ranked everywhere, was consensus #1 at talent packed 140. Such a strong division, Ortiz couldn't even break into top 10.
