Why won't Pacquaio just agree to the full random drug test without cutoffs?

Yeah, I don't think Manny's taking drugs either, but you can't blame people for asking questions. Especially in this day and age. Lance Armstrong is still suspected of doping and he openly invites stricter testing on himself. if you respond to accusations by telling people that they should just trust your word without making an effort to prove accusations wrong, then it's pretty insulting to the fans, because what Manny Pacquiao is doing LOOKS unusual to casual fans. I personally believe that Manny's improved his punching power and speed even as he's gotten older because he's become more efficient with his movement, but why allow yourself to be open to criticism by acting like a guilty party?

    The Pacman has already agreed to Flomo Jr's 14 daycut off, which is by far even better than the 19 day cutoff he had with Mosley. Yet Mayweather wants to take a hiatus from boxing once again. Once a ducker, always a ducker.

    Now it's up to Mayweather, says Top Rank CEO Bob Arum. According to the veteran promoter, Mayweather has until mid-July to accept the proposal. If Mayweather fails to accept the deal by mid-July, Arum and Pacquiao will look for a November replacement. Top Rank fighters Antonio Margarito and Miguel Cotto are the frontrunners to replace Mayweather if the deal falls through.

    "There's no actual date of a deadline, but it's sometime in the middle of July. If we haven't gotten this thing locked up and done then we're going ahead and taking another opponent. We're not just going to sit there and blow our chances for a fight in November," Arum explains to BoxingScene.com.

    The mid-July deadline is necessary to give both sides the proper time to promote a major fight like Mayweather-Pacquiao for a November pay-per-view date. Mayweather or otherwise, Arum wants to get the wheels rolling by early August.

    cause what you are asking is not going to happen. link http://www.examiner.com/x-5699-Boxing-Examiner~y20...

    there you go, Nevada has ruled out that every drug test inside the state will have a cut-off date. 2 or 3 weeks before the fight, why? cause giving blood randomly can cause sickness or injury. think about it, you don't wanna fight someone if you are not 100% good to go. therefore, if Nevada (Supreme state of boxing) will have a cut-off date. Then all boxing states that will have a drug-test will also have a cut-off date. Besides, why will Manny agree on the random drug test with no cut-off date. When the Floyd-Shane Drug test had a cut-off date, 18 days before the fight.

    The only thing Manny Pacquiao is going to test positive for is his work ethic and home cookin.

    He's agreed to all of Floyds silly demands. Now we find out if Floyd is ducking Manny like he did Margarito and Paul Williams.

  • 1 decade ago

    yea because he's scared of needles. thats why he doesn't have any tatoos.....oh wait. and if he's never failed a test why doesn't he just take the test? and if blood makes him dizzy, should the ref stop the fight if he bleeds during the fight? this is just like if i was accusing someone of taking my laptop but they wouldn't open their backpack... and they only would open their backpack after they got home. u can use steroids leading up to the fight after the cut off date. they want to know the dates too so they know when to use them before the cut off. freddie roach the liar said he knows nothing about steroids. but thats why james toney got caught? while roach trained him. take the test and lets watch the fight. and if u think blood testing if ridiculous, then why would you sue someone that you're negotiating with? thats pure ducking on manny's part.

    Your question is like saying, Why won't Floyd just drop the blood testing BS.... He's using the blood testing to gain advantage and to duck a fight with Pacquiao who BTW never been tested positive to any sorts of PED's or steroids.

    if steroids is not found in Pacquiao system,

    Mayweather JR. should demand a DNA test to make sure Pacquiao is not from Krypton and he is human.

    and it shall be conducted ringside 5 minutes before Michael Buffer makes the intro.
