Manny Pacquiao Plans to Sue one Steroids Accuser but Fight Another

In one of the greatest paradoxes I’ve seen in sports, Manny Pacquiao and his camp are making making themselves look even worse for their recent decisions. The madness began a few days ago when the agreement between Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Manny Pacquiao to fight on March 13th began to fall through. Pacquiao began backing out of the fight because he didn’t want to submit to olympic-style drug testing. Manny’s promoter, Bob Arum, then went on a verbal assault trying to come up with every possible angle to spin the reason for why Pacquiao is backing out. Pacman is even going on the offensive now, saying he’s going to sue for defamation over the allegations. In the meantime (and this is my favorite part of the story), Arum says he’s in the process of arranging a fight with Paulie Malignaggi for the same March 13th date. This is the same Paulie Malignaggi who ALSO accused Pacquiao of using PEDs:

The level we have of testing in boxing is not really that deep. I mean, we have urine tests on the day of the fight and we don’t have much else…there’s things that don’t come up in drug tests. There’s ways to beat drug tests.

Manny Pacquiao is the first guy in history, and he might be the special thing that everybody says he is, he might be, the first guy in history to go up in weight and knock out more people as he goes up in weight than he did when he was smaller. He might be that special person. Me, I think that looks a little fishy. I think that’s a little bit fishy.

So let me get this straight, it’s fine to accuse Manny Pacquiao of using steroids or performance-enhancers so long as you don’t demand he submits to strict drug testing? Good, just wanted to make sure I had that straight. This should put an end to the debates about Pacquiao and Arum’s motive. Manny complaining that having his blood drawn will sap him of his power is like one of those people who claim they can levitate so long as nobody is watching. Uh huh. The onus is on Pacquiao here and he should submit to Olympic-style testing if he has nothing to hide. End of story.

    what is this boxing sport you speak of

    Years ago, they’re accusing Manny of using “special” gloves, and now they’re accusing him of using “special” enhancement drugs? What’s next, “special” underwear?

    Come on now, years ago, when Mayweather Jr.was on his way to the top to become the best, nobody questioned his manner of getting there? Why now? Did he resort to such methods as his dad claims Manny is doing right now? Does it take one to know one?

    Boxing rules are governed by the Nevada State if fights are held in Las Vegas. Let them conduct what is currently being used and not what Mayweather Sr. suggests. Why suddenly replace something that still works.

    Father is just concerned about his son getting bashed, that’s what I think.

    Go Pacman!!! Just because he’s a humble Filipino and a great champ that doesn’t talk smack to his opponent, people like ChickenWeathers, Golden GayBoy Promotions and whoever your jealous stupid name is doesn’t have the right to accuse nor assume someone like Pacquiao for taking some steroids just because his hardworking and gifted skills. On top of that, you and CW and GGBP can’t admit that he’s one of the GREATEST Boxer (Pacquiao) that ever lived in this planet. If your so called ChickenWeather is the best P4P that think he is, then stop being a coward and stop making all these rediculous demands. Chickenweather has too many excuses coz he’s afraid that Pacman will make him look ugly like he did to Gayloard Dela Hoya, Cotto, and Diaz lol. Happy Holidays to all the Pachaters and hopefully this 2010 all of you will change your ways and will admit that Pacquiao is the best P4P King!!!!

    Sorry, I guess a little pinch of blood testing before a match will take Pacman’s powers? Stop being so foreign. What a slugdog. He says he’s afraid of needles yet he has many tattoos. Explain that Jianne. Mayweather Jr. didn’t even say anything, it’s just part of the damn contract for a blood test.

    say what you want to manny, but it just seems like you are the one with something to hide. We all know piss tests can be inaccurate, or easily cheated. Just take the test! Mayweather is going to be too much for you. Afterall, marquez, and morrales both were able to out box you.What do you think floyds gonna do? You don’t even believe that you can knockout floyd do you? I hope your not that stupid! I bet against you, if the fight ever happens. We will all hope that this fight happens, so i can get my money.Manny, stop being a coward!

  • ugk

    Please cut the crap. I am a fan of Pacman for some time. But i am clearly not going to support his weird behaviour at the moment. He is making himself look guilty of cheating.
    Just get the olympic style testing done and stop making excuses and threatening lawsuits

  • cebu

    lets do the fight, follow only the rules & requirements of boxing nothing more…

    lets see who is the best fighter!!!

    ISNT BOXING AN OLYMPIC SPORT? HOW ABOUT WRESTLING AND WIEIGHTLIFTING, HOW COME THE OLYMPIANS DONT COMPLAIN ABOUT THE DRUG TESTING(EXCEPT MAYBE THE ONES WHO GET CAUGHT) ZAPPING THEIR STRENGTH? WHAT A LOAD OF CRAP! I USED TO BE A MANNY FAN, NOW IM JUST CURIOUS WHAT EXCERCIZE MAKES YOUR FACE MUSCLES BULGE. ITS LIKE ROGER CLEMONS AND HIS INCREDIBLE EXPANDING HEAD. THE MAYWEATHERS ARE ANNOYING AND OBNOXIOUS, AND AS MUCH AS I HATE TO SAY IT, I HAD THE SAME SUSPICIONS AFTER THE COTTO FIGHT. SHAME ON MANNY BOXING NEEDED THIS FIGHT.

  • tina

    I think those brokeass mayweathers should sit down somewhere and let old age set in on their rough ghetto asses! Did anyone know their all broke and running around like crack monsters. who cares about these woman beaten bums anyway! I hope their parents aren’t as ugly as they are! well Floyd jr.’s mom is classy!

    It’s funny how all the Manny supporters keep bashing Floyd and his folk. All the mud-slinging is unnecessary. Whatever you want to say about Floyd, you have to admit that he keeps winning by virtue of hitting more often than he is hit. Manny, on the other hand, keeps getting hit by guys bigger (and assumedly stronger) than he is, yet he doesn’t seem fazed. It is this uncanny ability that has intelligent people worried; this awesome ability to absorb punishment without being hurt. No one with any sense will assume that to be normal; Manny’s defensive skills appear to be minimal, but then he doesn’t need to evade any punches if he is certain that he cannot be hurt. That gives him an advantage. That advantage is good for Manny (any boxer would be happy to have it). If it comes from exercise, training or genetics then bully for you Manny; your superhuman ability to absorb blows is something to be applauded and respected. But if, on the other hand, it comes from a bottle or a hypodermic needle, it’s cheating and should be roundly condemned. That stupid: “will sap my powers” excuse will only be accepted by the stupid or those in the throes totally mindless fanaticism – or perhaps those who hate Floyd (or Black people) so much that they will support any one against the Pretty Boy. Calling Floyd Mayweather unkind names will not make him any less “pretty” in the ring; it will not make not make him lose to inferior fighters. It is superior “leather-slinging”, not mud-slinging that must be responsible for defeating the pretty one. The former is unlikely to happen at this point in time the latter only demeans the mud-slingers. You know what they say: “If you are throwing mud it follows that you are losing ground.”
