ok, so a ten million dollar penalty is reasonable, but osdt isn't? mayweather didnt try to implement any new rule. under the rules of boxing, PEDS are prohibited. mayweather was simply asking for better testing, which to me and many others, is more than reasonable. im sure u agree.

Please shut the **** up. How about asking for money you dont garner on your own like 50/50 when your highest payday was only like 15 million? But thats a a reasonable request as well. What about asking JMM for drug tests or no fight? Thats reasonable now isnt it and keep in mind JMM hasnt fought in 8 weight divisions. Youre a biased pacturd. Floyds 40 million offer phone call to Manny's house was the biggest attempt to make he fight out of both parties. Manny's best offer ever in his career.

Obviously Mayweather. He never wanted the fight, even with all of his advantages. He would have made the most money ever in a fight, had the physical advantages (height, reach, overall size) and it would have clearly helped his legacy, if he would have won (I had him as the favorite). Instead he made excuses and tried setting his own rules, accusing Pac of ROIDS, trying to diminish his credibility and even had some racial insults along the way. Mayweather has always feared this type of aggressive fighter (not fear of the man but the L). But I also believe that Arum played a part. Pacquiao is just a puppet. You tell him to fight Goliath, and he's dumb enough to say yes.

Its ok for Team Pac to do the same shit,minus being racist but claim JMM is on steroids? Pacturds. JMM should file a lawsuit for defamation of character and not agree to the tests as well as Manny. A bunch of you will be singing a new tune thats for sure.

If the fight didn't get made when it mattered most, Pacquiao's team is to blame in my opinion. I don't see the OSDT as an obstacle unless youre hiding something. How is Mayweather to blame for the fight not being made? Let's hear it, Pactards...
It's not really Pacquaio's fault. It's Bob Arum. He sacrificed his whole Top Rank roster that was in Pacquiao's weight range for his own greedy benefit.

I thought we were talking about Mayweather vs Pac? I never said Pac's camp didn't do the same to Marquez AFTER. Same criticism goes for him. The difference is that Pacquiao fought Marquez. 4 Times haha. But I agree that Pac's camp was a joke for accusing marquez as well. it's obvious those mother****ers never lifted weights in their life or they'd realize it normal to gain muscle when you lift weights.

I don't think Floyd is going to fight Canelo. Too risky.

Still think Manny has the edge. But Floyd has been catching up.

A lot of this will depend on whether Floyd loses or not. If he doesn't, many will rate him higher whether his resume/accomplishments are as strong as Pac's or not. If he does, well...then his battle is a little more uphill.
