Pacquiao vs. Mayweather Called off!
I was so looking forward to this fight. The last few years have been good in boxing and this was going to be the cherry on top. I just cant see how this happened, I have never heard a blood test being so important I am going to blame this on Floyd. Pac-man put up with their allegations and has even backed off his stance on not pulling his blood 30 days prior to the fight. I hope this is some more type of hype that will just want us to watch this fight even more.

Here is the article I guess you can decide for yourselves. I know this is going to disappiont all the boxing fans everywhere.

Bad news man, for sure.

My cousin works at Wild Card in LA, and it's been a surreal series of events the last few weeks.

This isn't good for boxing. I dont know why they couldn't just agree to the standard testing, or the compromise offered by Top Rank. Never before in the history of boxing has drug testing independant of the federal commission ever been done. It's never, ever happened....

Re: Pacquiao vs. Mayweather Called off!
mayweather and his pops are scared . . . mayweather never fights anyone who is a challenge to him. yeah hes beaten some good boxers but they were selectively chosen good boxers.

just like roy jones, the camp picks and chooses whom they want to fight, since they get top billing they get to.

i used to love love boxing but now, after the gatti-ward 1st fight, theres been nothign exciting. lennox lewis was great at the art of boxing but he's rather win on the scorecard and not take as many punches . . . .just like maywaether and jones.

atleast pacman doesnt dodge fights or fight to win by judge calculations.
