Its not even a completely superstitious thing. The olympic drug testing procedures can call for fighters to have blood drawn the day of the fight. Manny feels like this would be detremental to his performance, I dont know if that really would hurt him or not. Manny said he would gladly have blood drawn as soon as the fight ended and up to forty eight hours prior to the fight, he just didnt want to do it on the day of the fight. He has no problem doing a piss test on fight day. I understand where he is coming from and I dont get why Mayweather is being such a tool about this.

PacMan would tool Mayweather, and even if this blows over I think you're gonna have to drag Floyd kicking and screaming to get him in the ring with Manny.

I think a few people mis-read, or read over quickly.

“We appeased Mayweather by agreeing to a urine analysis at any time, and blood testing before the press conference and after the fight. Mayweather pressed for blood testing even up to the weigh-in.”

I do not know much about this matter, so what is the reason to ask for random blood tests? Does this really protect or help mayweather or any other fighter at all? Is urine testing not as efficient?

No, urine testing isn't as accurate, but IMO, Mayweather is being a bitch; a scared bitch.

There is finally someone who presents a real challenge for him and he seems to have no real interest in fighting him. Ive always respected Floyd's skills, but as a person and a champion he is severely lacking.
Lets not blame all of boxing for this single event. ******* mayweather. Pacman deserves the chance, but unfortunately mayweather plays his cards well.

there are certain drugs only detectable by blood tests... I fully think this is BS and Floyd is a bitch for doing it. I hope when people look back on his "legacy" that they see he ducked Manny completely. Manny would destroy him and he knows it. His wishes to get drug testing up the weigh in are absurd when Manny says they can test him immediately after the fight and up to 48 hours before. If there's something in his blood it will show up immediately after the fight.

i think theirs way too much hype surrounding this possibility of a fight that it might just go down regardless of Mayweathers cherry-picking. Also, if he dont fight PacMan then who will he fight? Pac-Man is #1 contender and you cant let go off that fact


EDIT: had to add it :P

Manny


Floyd

Mayweather vs Pacquiao OFF

Quote:
Arum says that the March 13 fight between Pacquiao and Mayweather will not continue because of demands by Mayweather’s camp for Pacquiao to undergo Olympic-style drug testing procedures.

“We don’t object to more extensive drug testing, even though it’s certainly not required in Nevada,” relates Arum, referring to the fact that Las Vegas bouts do not mandate measures as extensive as the Olympics. “What we’re saying is that the drug testing he is proposing is intrusive and would disturb Pacquiao’s training if it’s done within 30 days of his fight.”

Pacquiao has agreed to have his blood drawn for tests before and after the Mayweather bout – just not 30 days before.

“My gut feeling is Mayweather doesn’t want to do the fight and this is his excuse, period,” concludes Arum.

Arum has suggested to use instead the drug agencies who test NBA, NFL and MLB players, because they are generally accepted and only perform random urinalysis – which has no effect on the athlete, as opposed to having blood drawn.

Pacquiao was to defend the WBO title that he won by beating Miguel Cotto in Las Vegas last November against the undefeated Mayweather this March.

Ugh.. Fight of the decade gets scrapped because of some drug testing formality
