''When HBO televised "Pacquiao/Hatton 24/7", it aired footage of Pacquiao taking a routine blood test as part of his pre-fight medical exam. The blood test was conducted approximately 14 days before the fight; it punches holes in Pacquiao's argument that giving blood inside 30 days of a fight negatively impacts his performance.''

I still don't think Pacman wants to fight Floyd because he knows that he can't beat Mayweather. Mayweather knows this and figures that the only way that Pacman could surprise him was if he came into the fight juiced. So Floyd requested the extra check. Pacman looking for an out IMO.

I heard an interview with Freddy Roach saying that when Manny gives blood,it takes him at least 3 days to bounce back so I don't see the problem.

Why does it take Manny 3 days to bounce back

That is another lame excuse.

Suppose he takes the test and they come back positive? He knows he has juiced/jucing so their is no way he can take the tests

I also heard that they are already in talks for Pacquiao to fight Paulie Malignaggi, come one now this is getting crazy

Why does Floyd Mayweather keep coming up with excuses NOT to fight? Olympic drug style testing? This is professional boxing. The Nevada Commission is the one that determines the testing that will be required from the fighters, not Mayweather. It looks like Mayweather had second thoughts, he must not be confident. Even his uncle Roger Mayweather looked shocked after Pacquiao beat Cotto. Mayweather should just retired. He just lost a chance of a big payday. He won't fight Shane Mosley either, lol.

The thing is if it wasn't a big deal Manny could have just went ahead and did it just to shut Mayweather up. So to a lot of people including me it looks like Pacuiao is hiding something. Especially for a $30 mil payday

See, thats the difference. Not everyone thinks about the money, especially when you are as established as Manny. What is there for him to prove, especially for the likes of people who only cares what they want to see and hear?

If this is just another Filipino Asian dude, what does the blackman have to worry about being beaten by the likes of Manny?

Innocent until proven guilty, unless you can prove otherwise, like gayweather jnr, you should just ****. Really!!
