Mayweather Holds Nothing Back on Pacquiao/PEDs Talk

By Rick Reeno

Floyd Mayweather Jr. held nothing back on the subject of Manny Pacquiao and performance enhancing drugs. For years, promoters have been trying to match the two welterweight superstars. The fight negotiations fell apart, more than once - over the involvement of a random drug testing protocol. Mayweather explained his position, in full detail, on why he refuses to fight Pacquiao without the involvement of an Olympic style random drug testing protocol.

Further, Mayweather explained his doubts about the legit nature of Pacquiao's recognized success in multiple weight divisions.

"Where was Manny Pacquiao at 96? He was a pro before me. Where was he in 97? Where was he in 98? Where was he all these years? All I'm doing is just asking a question. Come on, it's basic common sense now. And guess what, it took me years to get to here. It took me years to get here. Go back and look at the pictures. His head is small and then all of a sudden his head just grew? Come on man, stop this. Ray Charles can see this sh*t. Go back and look at the pictures and tell me this man's head didn't get bigger. You're going to tell me this sh*t is all natural. Come one man, stop," Mayweather said.

"I'm going up in weight but I'm not just walking through no damn fighters. This motherf***er was 106 [when he started] and he's just walking through [Miguel] Cotto. And Cotto can't knock down [Shane] Mosley, but he can? Come on man."

In 2010, Mayweather and Shane Mosley took part in a random drug testing protocol. A few years earlier, Mosley used performance enhancing drugs but insists he was unaware of the illegal nature involved with the supplements he was taking.

"You saw what happened when [Mosley] was doing [it]? What was he doing to fighters? He was running through fighters. And guess what, then all of a sudden I spoke on it. And then when I spoke, they said 'oh Floyd is just scared.' Then you took him off of it and put him in front me, what did he do? He got killed! This is bullsh*t and you know it," Mayweather said.

Mayweather is upset with members of American press for not standing behind his position on Pacquiao and the issue of random drug testing.

"These are the American people who don't stand behind me. They stand behind these foreigners. I get more love in the UK. Ya'll know this is bullsh*t. People just say 'we don't give a f*** if he's taking it or not, we just want to see a fight. We don't give a f*** about your health. We don't give a f*** about your family. All we care about is our own family.' F*** no, I care about my family - because they are going to be there when nobody else is there. When my career is over, you're going to move on to the next and write about the next motherf***er. That's exactly what is going to happen," Mayweather said. 

Pacquiao still has an ongoing defamation suit against Mayweather in Las Vegas. In the legal papers, the Filpino boxer claims Mayweather tarnished his image by allegedly stating in several interviews that he was using/used performance enhancing drugs.

Pacquiao's promoter, Bob Arum of Top Rank, has stated in several interviews that his boxer has no problem whatsoever with a testing protocol. Mayweather disagrees.

"Bob Arum is a professional liar," Mayweather said.
