Pacquiao Continues To Pressure Mayweather To Fight

By Lem Satterfield

WBO welterweight champion Manny Pacquiao continues to voice his agreement to a drug testing schedule that he believes will satisfy the demands required for a potential megabout with Floyd Mayweather, but it is unclear whether that, in itself, is what the unbeaten welterweight's side really wants.

Negotiations for a proposed megabout between Pacquiao (51-3-2, 38 knockouts) and Mayweather (41-0, 25 KOs) are resumed after having reached an impasse in January for a proposed March 13 bout. The conflict arose over whether or not each fighter would be subjected to Olympic style random drug testing of blood and urine.

A gag order has been in place for the negotiations, and neither side is speaking publicly. Pacquiao initially refused to have blood drawn closer than within 24 days of a fight, but the Filipino star has since softened his stance.

"I'm very much willing and excited to train for that fight. I'm also ready to assume my congressional seat," Pacquiao told BoxingScene.com and GMA News out of his native Manila, Philippines. "Floyd has no reason to refuse to fight any more because I have agreed to the 14-day limit within which they can draw blood from me."

Meanwhile, Pacquiao's promoter, Bob Arum, continues to work with Golden Boy Promotions on perhaps the most highly anticipated fight in decades between Pacquiao and Mayweather.
