He's innocent until proven guilty. Nobody on this forum has an opinion that matters. That won't stop people voting "yes" because they "used to take creatine and nothing happened". Polls like this are useless. Gives a platform for idiots to roar about Pacquiao the doper and kick up the kind of proof that wouldn't get them through a school chemistry experiment.

Enjoy the boxing. Leave this nonsense to the experts.

Which kind of performance-enhancing drugs?
This discussion should only be between Pacquiao, his wife, his doctor, and late-night commercials.

"IF" he is on illegal PED's then maybe all boxers should be prescribed them.

No, Ive always maintained the guy was a lightweight who punches like a welterweight. Now hes got the extra poundage to put behind that power and speed. I dont think hes anymore than a welterweight banger though, and that could expose some of his shortcomings once he starts fighting the technically better welters, and Floyd is the tops.
I wouldnt even put him in with a guy like Yuri Foreman before Floyd, Roach is nuts for saying they win that fight easy. A 5"11 mobile junior middleweight? That could create all sorts of problems.

I would hope not. Its taken me a long time but ive finally become a believer in Pac. Hes successfully gone through the weights maintaining speed and power, Roy Jones & James Toney did that and it turned out they were on performance enhancing drugs, maybe the signs were there when you have former MW champs fighting at world level in the HW division.

Very doubtful, but still have both Floyd and Manny tested.

Yeah, one after the fight but I still think if it's to be cleared up for sure, testing needs to happen during camp. Otherwise for all we know, he could be juicing during camp and then could be clean by fight night, not that I'm suggested he is juicing. Like I said though, if Floyd wants, he has to undertake exactly the same tests aswell.

After?


Worthless, so many steroids or PEDs will be out of their system before they even come close to being tested.

This is not even debatable. Only Predator Senior's/Floydettes' followers will only believe about the rumor.

Have a sample taken about half way into camp, and a small sample before the weigh-in or something. But Floyd should have the same test, to make it fair. He can't asks for specific drug-testing for Pacquiao and not undertake it himself.

Who cares. Why dont they just make it all legal, prob make better fights, same kinda thing in athletics, who wants to see someone run 100m in 9.5 second when you could do it in 4 on drugs.

But personally no i dont thinks he is, he just one of those unique people

Because taking performance enchancing drugs after the 6 weeks would do no good to a fighter. It wouldn't be in their system long enough.

Taking the test after, the fighters could set up to have it out of their system in time for the test.

That was an April fools type of joke, it was proven to not be true.

I don't think Pacquiao is taking performance enhancing drugs. He was 105 when he was 16, same as Mayweather and is a small wetler/decent sized junior welter at 30, pretty much the same as Floyd. Truth is Manny could have moved up a couple of years earlier as he was already having trouble making the 130 pound limit and was coming in at 144-146 on fight night.
