THIS IS THE STEROID & EPO ERA OF SPORTS!
San Francisco, CA- Let’s set a few things straight. 1. We live in an era where steroids and performance enhancing drugs are abundant in the sports world. 2. No fighter, or athlete for that manner has ever moved up so much in weight and enjoyed the success Manny Pacquiao has. 3. Never before has an athlete gained so much weight and not added an ounce of water weight and or fat. 4. The guy works out longer than any boxer I can recall in my tenure in boxing.
MANY EXPERTS FEEL MANNY IS CHEATING!
Many medical & boxing professionals feel that it is highly unlikely that Manny Pacquiao is NOT doing something with performance enhancing drugs. Here was a guy that got tired with Juan Manuel Marquez 20 lbs ago at 126, and now he’s ripping through welterweights with increased power, speed, and endurance.
HISTORY SAYS A LOT ABOUT WEIGHT GAIN
When you look at the greats, Wilfred Benitez, Roberto Duran, most recently Felix Trinidad, these guys all got fat and or soft as they climbed weight classes. Hell, look at the aforementioned Juan Manuel Marquez vs. Floyd Mayweather? Marquez had excess around his waist and he had only 16 lbs, not 40 like Manny.
MANNY LOOKS LIKE A ROID GUY TO MANY!
The lamest of Filipino bloggers keep saying, “Floyd never asked for this with any other fighter.” That could be answered both true & false. While Floyd hadn’t asked anybody prior to Pacquiao to take steroid and EPO tests, he demanded the same random testing that Pacquiao refused and Shane Mosley, his May 1 opponent, an admitted steroid user has agreed to. Prior to Pacquiao, no fighter has ever risen so far in weight sans water weight, fat, etc., therefore it was a smart move by Mayweather to demand Manny be tested randomly.
BLAMING MANNY & ARUM 110% HERE!
We need not get into the silly excuses Manny and or his promoter Bob Arum have come up with to stave off drug testing. Scared of needles, superstitious, a blood test will weaken the Filipino icon. Christ, the most ignorant of humans should be able to see through the bull s*it here! In the opinion of many, not only is Manny Pacquiao the best fighter pound for pound in boxing, he has now taken the tile of being the “best bull s*itter” in boxing away from none other than mouthy Floyd Mayweather.
STYLES HAVE FLOYD WINNING EASY
In closing, both Arum, Floyd, Pacquiao trainer Freddie Roach, and the Pacman as well, they all know that styles make fights and based on that, Pacquiao has little chance in defeating the slicker and faster Floyd Mayweather.
