I'm a fan of Manny, but why won't he just get over it and do the stupid drug testing? Stop this nonsense, and be the bigger man.
It's a psychological game. He's a Filipino fighter. He has a different belief system, which, although very religious, it also based on a lot of superstition, even as ridiculous as it may sound to every one else. From what I heard, the last time he submitted to the blood testing before the fight, he lost. Granted it was long ago, before he became as dominant as he is, but it is part of his pscyhe.
My question is, did Mayweather require that Mosley submit to the same testing as a condition to taking this fight?? I doubt it. All BS and posturing on Mayweather's part. He knows he's going to have the fight of his life with Pac-man, so he wants any psychological advantage he can get. He or his camp is not seriously concerned that Pac-man is juicing.
