I remember there were rumors during one of Pacquiao's fights with Erik Morales (the one where he lost) that the reason for him losing the fight was because of the huge amount of blood that he lost during the pre-fight blood test, which he had to take right before the fight started.

Now I understand why Pacquiao doesn't want to do another same day blood test. Besides, there will be urine testing before and after the fight and blood tests after the fight. Definitely, losing huge amounts of blood will affect any boxer's performance in a fight.
