Default Mayweather Testing Procedure is not Olympic Standard testing

Some people seem to think that the tests that Mayweather has used for his fights, since Pacquiao wanted to fight him, are Olympic Standard and are used for athletes that have signed up to the WADA testing program.

This is simply not the case, and what is more is that there are gaping holes in the testing procedure that allow the athletes to use PEDs and get away with it.

And with an athlete like Floyd who takes long breaks out of the game it possible he could take all kinds of illegal PEDs and get away with it, while a fighter that fights regularly would get caught out by the standard NSAC post-fight urine test.

This is the WADA testing program which Olympic athletes have to sign up to.

[ame]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xE_JFWSdO2g[/ame]

The testing is 365 day a year as well as testing at events. Floyd has not signed up to the WADA testing program.


Only one boxer at present has put himself forward to Olympic Standard Testing, and that is Nonito Donaire.

Floyd testing is only done over a 60 day period prior to the fight and post fight tests.

This leaves a large window throughout the rest of the year where Floyd could take any PED he desires and then get it flushed from his system but still be able to reap the benefits from it.

It also WADA's protocol to have athletes that have retire to be on the testing program for 9 months before being able to compete, Floyd does not adhere to this.

Until recently USADA did not CIR test all of it's sample, a test for artificial testosterone.

This could allow their athletes to micro-dope by only taking small amount of testosterone to keep them under the limit where the sample would be CIR tested.

VADA do test all there samples with CIR testing and caught out Peterson this way.


But even with full WADA testing the cheats can still get through, as we have seen with Lance Armstrong.

Is it true that USADA went by a 6:1 ratio and not 4:1?

You can also cheat with the Olympic standard, and even with tighter, better testing methods than that.

Wich means Floyd's method has more holes in it as a golf course.

Peterson test levels were 3.81:1

Many other athletes from different sports sign up to the WADA testing program.

Floyd has not.

Unfortunately some people do think he has signed up to the testing program.

Welp it's done wonders for cleaning up the sport for now. Mayweather should be applauded for catching the drug cheats and for exposing those refusing to test in their big fights.

It is better than the test conducted in boxing currantly, Nonito Donaire is the only boxer who could be said to be doing what would be Olympic Style drug testing.

If Floyd was doing all year testing how does this work out for his opponents?

Do they begin testing as soon as they are signed to fight Floyd or the ussually at the beginning of training camp?

His tests have caught zero athletes, while VADA which only came into existence last year has caught Peterson and Berto.

NSAC with there standard post-fight urine test still catch the most.

It was troubling to see USADA destroying the sample in the Quillin vs Wright fight.

Never gave a reason for why they did it too.

Testing for the championship bouts usually occurs before their first press conference after the fight announcement, before "camp"
