Pacquiao vs Mayweather is a continuing drama. The fight between Pacquiao and Mayweather is something that boxing fans all over want to see transpire.Â Why? Pacquiao is deemed pound-for-pound the best fighter in the league, while Mayweather used to hold that distinction before heading in to retirement.
Well Mayweather’s back and he wants blood – but first, he wants to test that blood. Floyd Mayweather Jr and his camp have requested that Manny Pacquiao take an Olympic Style blood test for noticing if he is under the influence of performance enhancing drugs.
Pacquiao thinks having blood drawn so close to a fight will make him weak, therefore he would rather take less strenuous drug tests in lieu of the requested tests.
That’s all fine and dandy, but you have to take in to consideration that Mayweather posted statements on his Web site that accused Pacquiao of using such drugs. Now, Pacquiao is suing his could-be opponent for damages in excess of $75,000.
So will the fight go on? Who knows.Â So far, the two sides have been in negotiations for two days. There’s no word if the fight will take place on March 13th in Las Vegas or not.
If the sides can agree, both fighters can walk away with up to $40 million each.Â This is a lot of money to give up over a spat overÂ a few drops of blood.
Will Pacquiao be the one to finally strip Mayweather of his undefeated status, or will Mayweather show everyone that he’s still pound-for-pound the best fighter in the league? We will just have to wait and see.
