In the United States of America you are innocent until proven guilty, I have seen some articles and media taking shots at Manny Pacquiao for refusing to take Olympic style blood tests before his March 13, HBO ppv bout with Floyd Mayweather Jr.
Now it’s being reported that no matter who Pacquiao fights other boxers will demand the same blood tests of Manny Pacquiao.
Why all of a sudden the man who many claimed beat up old, drained and shot fighters who were not impressed with Pacquiao’s performance even making comments like “my grandma could of beat up Oscar De La Hoya or Ricky Hatton that night” now believe Manny Pacquiao is on Steroids or Performance enhancers?
So now Pacquiao looked so impressive that you are riding the next wave of Pacquiao hate to justify your hatred towards this man?
Floyd Mayweather Sr. has said Pacquiao has no skills, even with steroids his son Mayweather Jr. can beat him, well if you said Pacquiao has no skills and your son can beat him like you claim why go through all this extreme blood testing only for Manny Pacquiao?
Why because the truth is Manny Pacquiao is the most impressive fighter to come out of boxing in a long time, what he has done is so mind blowing people keep looking for a reason why he won and defied their own logic on why Pacquiao should lose.
In reality it shows that they believe what Manny Pacquiao is doing is so unbelievable that only a man on some type of steroids can do what he is doing.
As a boxing fan let’s not throw Manny Pacquiao under the bus, the Mayweather’s have gone far out of their way to insult the Nevada State Athletic Commission who handles the drug testing for fights in Las Vegas by insisting on Olympic style drug testing before a bout.
If anyone should be questioned it should be Mayweather’s camp. What gives them the right to insist on such tests and calling the fight in their favor? Mayweather Jr. is the same man who was unprofessional enough to not make weight in his comeback fight with Juan Manuel Marquez.
Manny Pacquiao has always been very professional but because of his own belief that taking blood will weaken him people are quick to throw him under the bus? Who are we to stomp on someone elses beliefs, if Mayweather Jr. really wants this fight he will come to a compromise.
Seems to me in all honesty they are looking for a way out to ruin Pacquiao’s name and go on to face another easier opponent to preserve Mayweather’s unbeaten record.
Mayweather Jr. has to prove us wrong not Manny Pacquiao! Mayweather needs to fight Manny Pacquiao for the fans and for his legacy.
