Pacquiao test negative for Steroids
Manny Pacquiao tests negative for steroids and other drugs

Dr. Oscar Molina a Texas boxing commission and certified ring physician reported in an article by Dr. Recto of Philboxing.com that Filipino boxing icon, Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao took two urine samples on March 13, 2010 the day of his fight with Joshua Clottey at Cowboys Stadium in Texas and tested clean.

Pacquiao gave a urine sample right before his March 13th HBO Pay-per-per-view fight and one immediately after his unanimous decision victory over Joshua Clottey and both urine samples were clean and clear of any steroids or illegal performance enhancing drugs.

Pacquiao is not only clean but in great health and condition, passing the pre-fight physical with flying colors. During the pre-fight physical examination for the Manny Pacquiao vs. Joshua Clottey fight at Dallas Cowboy stadium in Dallas, Texas, the ring physician took Pacquiao’s vital signs and his Blood Pressure was – 116/64 and he had a resting Heart Rate of 43 BPM (beats-per-minute).

Floyd Mayweather Jr. demanded Pacquiao submit himself to stringent Olympic USADA drug testing before their proposed match up, but Pacquiao refused to give blood too close to the fight, stating that it will weaken him in the fight. Mayweather’s father Floyd Sr. and uncle Roger Mayweather have both been outspoken with their accusations that the Filipino 7-weight division champion is on some type of steroids or performance enhancing drugs, like A-side meth and growth hormones.

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.

No, he'll take the test. He just doesn't want to listen to Floyd dictate anything to him. Floyd says 14 days, Manny says...Nope. Just shut up and do the Boxing commission test and let's lace them up. Although, he is now saying...let's go 17 days.
Roach says Mayweather-Pacquiao fight will happen in October or November ? News
