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

explain. Isn't the plan to take the drug tests 6 weeks before the fight? how is that better than taking them the day after

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.

You seem fascinated with the argument that, "if the rumors weren't spread, we wouldn't be talking about drug testing." While that may be true, it does not change the fact that both fighters should undergo drug testing prior to the bout. It really is that simple.
I agree that all fighters should undergo drug testing before all fights. And there are already some rules in place for that. I believe that those rules should be updated frequently to keep up with the PEDs that are on the market.

I disagree that any fighter on any whim should be able to force his opponent to undergo additional drug testing that other fighters don't have to.

Floyd Sr. didn't start anything. He made the rumors more well known because of his name.

Roach has just said something that will have the Floyd camp feeling that the roids allegation is seemingly true.

Floyds camp can not see how pacman has been so successful with his wins over his last four opponents(one of them that Floyd was said to be avoiding-Cotto)

Roach has said he wont let his fighter be interfered with 6 weeks before a fight.....Random testing can happen in the middle of the night yes or no??

If i were Roach i would **** with those idiots minds too. All he has to do is say what he said and look at all the suspicion and intrigue a few seconds of an interview can achieve.......Roach is having a good laugh now i bet

If this is all true, it isn't like Pac is the only one going to be tested. Floyd Jr. will be tested also and PAc can ask if Floyd Sr. should be tested as well lol.... Pac's vitamin guy might come under fire. After all, his ****ty professional boxing record leaves me to ask how he even got with Manny to begin with...

no, but both fighters should be thoroughly tested anyways. I didn't think Margo had plaster in his gloves before the Shane fight, so what we 'think' doesnt matter
