    In other words, Mayweather was the first pro boxer to do extended drug testing for all of his fights.

    The horror.

    Once again - no "other words" necessary. My post was quite clear. It's just that you seem not to comprehend English too well.

    Why is it that, whenever it comes to discussions about Mayweather, you shave about 40 points off of your IQ?

    An allergic reaction to the facts, perhaps?

    If by that you mean disallowing Manny to use PEDs, you may have a point.

    However, Manny was allowed to use a PED called Celestone when they actually did fight.

    But your point was that it was never proven that May used PEDS with the I V situation ... so has Manny ever failed a drug test????

    He hasn't but he did refuse extended testing.

    Where is Celestone on WADA's banned substance list?

    Hearns ranks way higher what an idiotic topic. Hearns went out of his to fight the best , win or lose and he won more often than not. May weather a little ***** who dodged tough guys to protect his fake record. PlusHearns ranks higher for his incredible skills and lethal power

    He had a TUE for a WADA banned PED.

    This is not an issue then. Therapeutic use means medical treatment was given for a condition.

    And Floyd had one for an IV, which is why I mentioned it. An IV is not a PED, however.

    Manny's TUE is also a reason to not take his shoulder excuse seriously.

    No, use of an IV is a prohibited method, for a variety of reasons.
    Floyd's TUE was granted retroactively and some significant time, after the fact.


    That's a lazy analysis of the situation, in order to jump to a conclusion that favors your bias.

    So, because he was already taking painkillers, what? The condition couldn't have worsened? Something new couldn't have arisen?

    If anything, it tells us there was a problem to begin with, which a committee deemed worthy of a TUE.
