With drug testing, it has all been exposed recently. I can't remember the names, but Pacquiao has recently accepted Olympic Style Drug Testing (and looked the exact same, ending PED rumors) while Mayweather refuses to go away from his specific testers. Everyone uses one like NADT or whatever the name is, and Mayweather refuses to leave USADT or whatever. Mayweather makes 100million a fight, he could easily be paying them off, so you can't blame anyone for refusing it.
Actually it was the Mayweather camp that first offered a 50/50 split http://sports.yahoo.com/news/boxing-...010-fight.html
then the first fight was denied because Manny didn't want blood taken from him within 30 days to the fight. So the fight was off.
Then the second time it was called off due to Mayweather. I'm sure we can all agree a big part of the failure for this fight was due to Arum being Arum
