So what you're saying is that when someone who has never tested positive for any kind of PED shouldn't be accused or made to answer to those allegations?

I agree.

I bet you Floyd will do any type of testing to prove he is clean. What about Manny?

I'm against what the Mayweather Clan has done to Pac as far as accusing him of PED use. It not only puts a mark on him but also his personal trainer and everyone around him responsible for getting him in condition. As well as other fighters in his camp.

You tend to get this stuff from fans who believe All athletes are on something illegal...which really, this way of thinking, on some level, has me thinking that Floyd was sitting back thinking of his own decline and another man's rise which has left him soar.... but anyway...from someone within the Professional ranks to accuse...that's uncalled for. And, Floyd's fair game to go after. They should press the issue of Year Round Testing if he wants to put an end or "deter" athletes from using PEDs. But let's make sure we do the same with All the athletes that aren't doing it.



If Floyd thought something suspicious, he should have went after the testing standards instead of who he felt was cheating. And get the commission on board...although I don't think he would need them because they shouldn't be the authority on the matter. Athletes who risk their health and make a career out of this are the authority.

But again, if this video shows anything, maybe Floyd really isn't the brightest of guys in everything outside the ring.

I wonder if the guy even knows what the tests do other than "Catch Motha-F**** Cheaters."

Facial expression and tone of voice certainly showed there was something that made his heart rate go up. Then the meek reply of "i don't know what you're talking about" with a stupid looking smile was definitely not a normal Mayweather reaction.

It's similar to someone who got caught doing something bad, it's just the same type of reply and expression.

People who undergo such therapy benefit on the following: muscle bulk, red blood cells, bone growth, a sense of well being and erectile function.

The firestorm only came after Pacquiao refused extra testing.

And please, keep your response, should you choose to write one, under 5 paragraphs. Thank you.

He didn't know what it was. The jail issue he skated from. He has anger issues and things may not end well in the future for that guy.

So Floyd only accused Pac of PED use After Pac refused additional testing ??
It's been so long.
O' well. Whatever the case; I am for more testing as long as athletes/fans don't want PEDs in their sport.

For TRT, it's legal for the population to use but with active athletes, it's a good question. Good question to ask those in the sports.

Yea, it happened after the first round of negotiations fell through. Floyd Sr. said something first, mainly cause of what happened to Hatton, but the whole "take the test" shit happened after Pac refused initially.

TRT has never really been addressed in boxing. It is a relevant question, but in this case, it was almost an attempt at a "gotcha" question.

Floyd kinda stupid, so I didn't look too much into it.

I used to want to give him more credit on things but over the years, I just don't know. Maybe his "I.Q." points were spent more on how to fight more so than anything else.

I really hoped he had some hidden Nutritionist and Personal Trainer on the level of Ariza and Teri Tom, but in the end....damn...all I see is Leonard Ellerbe (and maybe he is good...I don't know)...and Chicken wings. And he wonders why Pac goes up and he has declined. So his PED accusations, could just be down to him knowing little about the advancements of nutrition and training.

Hopefully he knows to take his Flinstone Vitamins in the morning before he starts to devour his candy. Maybe Miss Jackson can sneak one in his candy bag. Floyd's like a little kid sometimes.
I don't know. Maybe he is playing dumb. Could be. He lives in Vegas after all.

Did he?

What's his background? I heard before he was a trainer but wasn't sure on his credentials.

Lots of people are "trainers" but not "experts" in the matter.

Science degree??

Physical health degree??

Just experience??
