I believe both Floyd and Manny wanted and still want the fight. Floyd has always insult ed and accused his opponents of some shit or another. I feel that like those fighters Manny wanted to settle the score in the ring but was, in his mind, legitimately concerned about how the test would affect him.

This is were Arum took over. I strongly feel that Arum conviced Pac, to instead of continuing negotiating the cutoff for testing, to move on and fight Clottey. He also pushed Manny to file the suit, because Manny doesnt seem like the type to be filing lawsuits over shit like that. He would let his fist do the talking.

From this point forward chaos ensued and the blame game went into high gear.

In all these years of attempted negotiations, Arum has reigned supreme in excuse making and placing obstructions for the fight to be made.

If you analyze the negotiations thouroughly and without bias you will come to the conclusion that Manny is probably least at fault for the fail negotiations. Then comes Floyd but the bulk of the blame squarely lies on Arum's shoulders.


This.

However......his intentions were NOT honorable.....They were presented in a way that Floyd hoped would be perceived that way but in reality he wasn't drawing attention to the outdated testing measures in boxing to "clean up the sport"....he did it to help his baseless accusations aimed at tarnishing PAC's career as a boxer.

I take the good with the bad.....but I'm not one to let Floyd off the hook just because there was some good that came from all this.
I don't care about his intentions.

His intentions are not even relevant. What is relevant is that a top level athlete asked to have certain cutoffs, which took away from the integrity of the testing.
If he did it to ehlp his accusations then he wouldn't have asked every fighter since getting the idea to start it.

Whatever Floyd's intentions were is not important. What is important is that NO athlete should duck or manipulate any drug testing.

Why should he after all the shit Pac pulled in negotiations. Pac frankly doesn't deserve it. Wouldn't even do random testing to make the fight

Are you just trolling?
