While the particulars have been worked out and agreed upon for Manny Pacquiao and Timothy Bradley to square off again on April 12th, one thing that is still being worked on is the random style drug testing that will be administered leading up to the fight.
Olympic random style drug testing is quite prevalent in boxing as its used as reassurance and to prove both fighters are clean and on an even level playing field. The two agencies of choice are USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency) and VADA (Voluntary Anti-Doping Association).

BoxingScene caught up with Bradley and asked if random style drug testing would be done for this fight.

I believe were doing VADA testing. Im not sure so dont quote me on that but right now were negotiating the testing and who were going to go with Bradley told BoxingScene.

Pacquiao participated in additional testing for the first time in his previous fight against Brandon Rios this past November. It was a move that surprised many as random testing was the breaking point during negotiations with Floyd Mayweather in 2010.

Even though nothing has been finalized, Pacquiao confirmed testing would be done for this fight and he even feels if a fighter tests positive, he should face a penalty.

Im the one who also suggested Olympic style random drug testing [in the Rios fight] and in this fight also. But Im suggesting to fine if the athletes are using drugs or have any positive tests. They [should] get fined suggested Pacquiao.

[QUOTE=ShoulderRoll]Why didn't Pacquiao go along with Bradley's wishes and do VADA testing?[/QUOTE] He's "returning to the Pac that beat DLH, Hatton and Cotto".........no speculation but that's just what Pac said. :dance:

[QUOTE=MDPopescu]VADA is randomly testing all year around.[/QUOTE] Bradley hasn't signed up for year round testing. He's only done it in a fight by fight basis. In 3 fights so far, he's only been tested for a combined 4 months with 1 more month to go.
