Are there any signs that Pacquiao has used PEDS?

4 Comments

The debate as to whether or not Pound for Pound Champion Manny “Pacman” Pacquiao (53-3-2, 38 KO’s) is, or ever has used Performance Enhancing Drugs (PEDS) is endless.

Quite frankly the constant accusations and denials over the past couple of years has gotten tiresome. Its like, can’t we get onto something else? But unfortunately the debate will go on forever, or so it seems.

Boxing fans desperately want to see the iconic “Pacman” fight the other Superstar in boxing, Floyd “Money” Mayweather (41-0, 25 KO’s). And the reason the fight has not happened as of yet is that Mayweather wants Pacquiao to subject himself to Olympic style random drug testing. “Money” claims that his intent on insisting that everyone he fights “take the test” is because of his crusade to clean up boxing. Floyd is not picking on Manny, he just wants everyone he fights to be on a level playing field with him. It must be pointed out that no boxing commission requires the type of testing that Floyd is requiring of anybody who fights him. Shane Mosley took the test and apparently Victor Ortiz will be taking it as well for his September 17 match up with Mayweather.

Let’s cut to the chase with regard to the type of testing Floyd is requiring of Pacquiao. More than likely there will always be an issue with regard to the testing. Manny wants an impartial body to do the testing while Floyd is satisfied with the USADA performing the testing and the debate goes on. As soon as one obstacle is removed two more pop up.

There are observations we can make of athletes in the past who have allegedly been linked to steroids. Without mentioning any names we all have a pretty good visual picture of what a steroid uses looks like and it’s effects on the athlete taking them. We have not seen any baseball player hit anything close to 70 home runs lately.

We can expect an athlete on anabolic steroids to be aggressive, irritable, quarrelsome, suspicious, and agitated, coupled with mood swings and fits of rage, hence the term “Roid Rage”.

Steroid use has also been linked with delusional behavior, depression, impaired judgment and incidents of domestic violence.

Yet we do not see any of those symptoms exhibited by Manny Pacquiao who is constantly surrounded by masses of people and frequently involved in public functions.

What? “” Boxing fans desperately want to see the iconic “Pacman” fight the other Superstar in boxing, Floyd “Money” Mayweather (41-0, 25 KO’s). And the reason the fight has not happened as of yet is that Mayweather wants Pacquiao to subject himself to Olympic style random drug testing “”

I know that te reason the fight has not happened as of yet is that Mayweather have afraid of Manny. Manny has no problem in taking drug testing that Money and put ams excuses not to fight. Whoever wrote this note? Not only lie but to defend a coward like Floyd Mayweather only hurts boxing.

It seems that all the symptoms you mentioned fits more on manureweather than Manny. Manny’s completely opposite of those symptoms, while manureweather’s latest demeanors shows the symptoms.

Everyone knows Floyd’s just hiding and stalling behind the “test” excuse. Boxing Commission doesn’t require this type of testing, who is Floyd to force his opponents to give blood 4 to 8 times right up to fight night. That’s cheating.

Floyd, use the same testing that everyone else uses by the Boxing Commission. Stop cheating by weakening your opponents.

Pacquiao exihibits none of the roid symptoms. He’s 53-3-2 with 38KOs. That’s not a roid record. Someone on roids would be 53-0 with 53 KOs.

It’s like accusing someone in baseball who hit 53 homeruns to be on roids, instead of 70 homers.

If pac had 70 homers, then sure, u might have a case he could be on something, but everything we’ve seen him do in the ring is from pure talent, skill, heart, determination and training….he gets hurt, he gets hit, he gets tired, but he wins.
