I used to think that Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao was suspect of taking performance enhancing drugs when he first rejected the random blood testing for steroids in the first negotiations with Floyd Mayweather. Slowly my mind started changing, and I begun to realize that the real truth is Floyd Mayweather is scared of the Pacman.
If Manny Pacquiao was taking steroids than that would make him one of the dumbest people in sports right now. I don’t think team Pacquiao is dumb enough to give Manny Pacquiao steroids with hundreds of people surrounding them and an HBO 24/7 crew following him in the Philippines and the US.
If Alex Ariza his nutritionist was giving him some steroids someone would have seen it by now because there is no hiding Manny Pacquiao — the man always has an entourage or people following his every move.
This is all a smoke screen put up by Floyd Mayweather. He saw that Manny Pacquiao was so dominant over similar opponents and was threatened by him and feared a possible showdown. He had to dig up something on the Pacman and found some old info about him having to give vials of blood the night before his loss to Erik Morales in 2005.

Boxers are superstitious and creatures of habit, what the normal person would laugh at and say that’s a wives tale or bogus — a boxer would find mental comfort in a routine or ritual such as no sex before a fight, wearing the same type of shoes or gloves, or eating a certain meal after weigh-in’s because they feel it gives them the most nutrition. Manny’s team already said he would give blood immediately after the fight at a hospital win lose or draw and unlimited urine tests through out training camp.
I feel that Floyd Mayweather Jr. doesn’t want to fight Manny Pacquiao until Manny is damaged and shows visible signs of his foot and hand speed deteriorating. If Floyd fights Manny Pacquiao who isn’t in his prime or peak and beats him, I won’t give Floyd Mayweather any credit at all because he waited to long. He doesn’t deserve it because he never wanted to fight a prime Pacquiao, he is waiting till he sees Pacman look like crap and if Manny looks great against Juan Manuel Marquez, Floyd will not take the fight.
Floyd fans keep saying Manny Pacquiao is scared or he is on steroids. Those are all speculations, but the most logical answer is Floyd Mayweather is scared to lose and take a whooping like a man by a prime Manny Pacquiao.
