Mayweather, Canelo, 6 Others Test Negative in Nevada

by David P. Greisman

All eight fighters who appeared on “The One” boxing pay-per-view on Sept. 14 came up negative for the banned substances tested for in Nevada’s drug-screening panel, according to an email from state athletic commission Executive Director Keith Kizer.

The pay-per-view boxers were Floyd Mayweather, Canelo Alvarez, Danny Garcia, Lucas Matthysse, Carlos Molina, Ishe Smith, Pablo Cesar Cano and Ashley Theophane.

All 16 boxers who fought on the card that night at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas were tested. Kizer said he was awaiting an undercard test result.

Molina and Smith also underwent an additional test on Aug. 7, for which both were negative, Kizer said.

How does BigPop post an article that says that the fighters tested were negative, and still clowns are saying otherwise. #Idontgetit
