Simple yes or no, is PACMAN on steroids?

I think what is also laughable is how some people choose to focus on the lesser defense and just pretend the stronger argument does not exist.

OK, wait a second. What are all his arguments? I'm commenting from a place of ignorance, I admit it.

This is what I've heard. Manny is scared of needles. He thinks Olympic blood testing will leave him weakened (though Mayweather would be going through the same thing, just as Olympic athletes have done for many years).

I think those are both bunk. There may be stronger reasons given . . . but even mentioning things like that sets off my BS detector. It's like when someone's late for work and tells you that he was stuck in traffic and, oh yeah, he had car trouble, too. One good reason should suffice; stop trying to accumulate weak excuses into some mega-excuse.

His only excuse is that he is on the juice, period!

In his last fight vs. Shane Mosley, his last blood test was 18 days prior to the fight. If he can do it 18 days, why can't Manny do it in 14 days?

Well the main reason is a very simple idea. Anyone truly unbiased should be able to recognize the validity of it.

Based purely on principle......why should I have to give in to this other persons demands?

That self imposed question has no good answer. I have never heard of a good answer yet to this question.

Some people throw out the money as the answer Pac should come up with. REally? I could have sworn Pac made pretty good money in his last fight(s)?

Yeah, it sounds like Mayweather is playing mind games. That said, Manny's excuses are BS.

They should just hire an arbitrator or something and bind themselves to his decision, re: PED testing.

Yeah, I can't stand Mayweather and I think that Pacman is awesome, but all I've heard are tremendously weak excuses from Manny's camp. If THIS is the difference between them fighting and not fighting, it tells me that Pacquiao is either on the juice, or wants no part of Mayweather. There is some serious denial in this thread.

NOTHING in this world will ever shock. I have simply lived too much.

So yeah, maybe Pac is juiced.

I would say this is the order in which I believe Pac is against the fight.

1. He is insulted by the Man, and probably HATES the fact that his career epic showdown is against a person of such character. These two men are opposites in every way. I think Pac feels intimidated by Mayweathers pre fight maneuvering and is hyper sensitive to "losing" the pre fight battle of wills.

2. I think Pac maybe is ducking Mayweather a bit. Who can blame him? I also think Mayweather doesn't take a win against a clean Pac for granted.

3. Pac really is on juice and "Money" really did figure out the way that would force Pac into a clean fight

I won't deny any of those are possible.

But I think it is most likely 1 then maybe 2....and 3 as more of a anythings possible scenario

That's fair. But I would think that if he's insulted by Mayweather (and Pac's clean), that would intensify the desire to beat his ass and teach him a lesson.

Random = could be 18 days, could be day of the fight!

Which means he would have agreed to the testing and signed already, correct?

He is Pro Fighter. I highly doubt he thinks of Fights in this way.

This is perhaps my main point though

I for one would view Pac as the pre fight loser if he gives in any further.

Pac should move on, this dude ain't worth it.
sadly in this day and age, whenever an athlete does something remarkable over and over again, steroids are always brought up, and alot of times it ends up being true.

on the other hand, why should he do what Mayweather says just because he wants to fight him? Pacquiao should tell him "ill fight you if you get an enema every day for a week". hes just telling him to STFU and stop trying to make him do things to fight him.

You can't post a thread like this and ask for a yes/no answer! Does an athlete who's work ethic is world class and has full control of his body have to be on steroids? or is it the fact you just hate Pacman so you look for loop holes to make an excuse? If Pac is on steroids then so is Mayweather, they both started around 112-115 lbs. and Mayweather even missed the weight by a few lbs. The only problem now is the Steroids messed up Duckweather, his body stop producing testosterone and he is now a permanent vag.

IS it all about the testing?

Isn't the fight stalled because PacMan wants more of the purse than Flloyd.
This thread is dumb. Why can't an Asian man be 5'6" and be around 150 lbs? If he puts on 20-30 lbs of muscle on his 5'6" frame then let's talk.
Check his vocals, he is not.


I don't see a lot of muscle definition, guys.
