DRUG ROW

NEGOTIATIONS between the two sides did advance in 2009 but fell through when Manny Pacquiao did not agree to one of Floyd Mayweather’s main concerns, having an Olympic style drug testing procedure in place. Failure to reach a resolution on that issue was one of the main sticking points, although to counter the insinuations coming his way Pacquiao took legal action to extract an apology from Mayweather. It was said that Pacquiao also feared blood being taken from him for the testing during his training camp. For this fight USADA will carry out testing before the event.
