NSAC: MAYWEATHER-MOSLEY BLOOD TESTING CUTOFF WAS 18 DAYS BEFORE THE FIGHT


PhilBoxing.com




Top Rank promoter Bob Arum says Floyd Mayweather Jr will be to blame should the planned mega-fight with pound-for-pound king and ?Fighter of the Decade? Manny Pacquiao fail to take place.

Arum made the statement in an overseas telephone conversation with insidesports.ph, Standard Today and Viva ports after Pacquiao told boxing writers Nick Giongco and Abac Cordero that he was acceding to the demand of Mayweather for random Olympic-style drug tests 14 days before their planned fight last May 1 provided they don't extract too much blood.

Pacquiao had even agreed to allow blood tests to be conducted in his dressing room immediately after the fight to prove he had nothing to hide and that the allegations that he is on performance enhancing drugs without a shred of evidence, had prompted him to file lawsuits against the Mayweathers as well as Golden Boy Promotions CEO Richard Schaefer and owner Oscar De La Hoya.

That fight fell through when Pacquiao offered a 24 day cutoff for the blood tests and Mayweather insisted on 14.

We also learned that the random blood tests conducted by the US Anti Doping Agency on Mayweather and Mosley prior to their fight were done 18 and 19 days before their May 1 showdown which Mayweather won handily after Moley hurt the undefeated Mayweather in the second round but quickly faded and looked an ageing fighter in the end.

Arum said he had learned that the Nevada State Athletic Commission which currently doesn?t conduct blood tests had received the USADA reports under an agreement with Golden Boy Promotions who staged the Mayweather-Mosley fight and that the reports indicated the tests were taken 18 and 19 days before the fight even though Mayweather had insisted on 14 days.

Arum noted ?by saying 14 days were required by USADA, if this fight (Pacquiao-Mayweather? doesn?t happen clearly there is only one person to blame and that?s Mayweather. These are all excuses? made by him to avoid fighting Pacquiao.
