    Floyd wanted a retroactive TUE clause to be put into the contract before he even signed off on the fight.

    If that doesn’t scream out at you, then I’m at a complete loss.

    An IV of that magnitude is banned as it’s a known masking agent.

    Manny’s shoulder was operated on just 5 days after the fight.

    Nobody puts a retroactive TUE clause into a fight contract before signing off on a fight. Nobody.

    Why would a guy who walked around just above his fight weight and who never had any issues regarding his weight his whole career, have been concerned about potentially being dehydrated 3 months in the future?

    That’s not someone taking a precaution.

    That’s someone trying to cover themselves.

    The IV that Floyd had administered should have been officially classed as a medical emergency, where if the correct procedure had been adhered to, would have resulted in admittance to a hospital.

    He wasn’t severely dehydrated. And if he had’ve been, he’d have taken fluids orally which has been medically proven to be more beneficial in that kind of situation.

    We know what happened.

    Wait a minute. I’ll use one of your sign offs: Deal with it!

    Frankly why do you care about the IV?

    Floyd's legacy doesn't revolve around the Pacquiao fight. Are irregularities surrounding the fight relevant in the scheme of things?

    Floyd was past his best anyway.

    But you would never request a retroactive TUE clause before you’d even started your camp would you?

    You know that he cheated.
