    Manny is taking the bloodtest but on team Pacquiao term. They should both shut up and fight. Mayweather should shut up and accept the term. 3 bloodtest is good enough for a 6 weeks leading up to the fight.

    Manny couldn't give a rats ass about mayweather's demands.

    This is looking more and more like mayweather trying to run over his meal ticket. He believes that he is the star in this and all he is is the heal in a fight where the majority of the fight fans wanna see him get knocked the hell out.

    I'll never buy another mayweather fight and that's the point. He thinks it is business as usual and everybody wants to see him fight, but in truth Mayweather's is just guaranteeing that people care less and less about him. In fact even in the JMM fight I bought it not because of Mayweather but because of JMM.

    In reality Mayweather needs this fight with Manny far more than Manny needs this fight with Mayweather. His ego is about to screw this up.

    So apparently, Manny eased off his 30 days blood testing date to 24 days and Floyd didn't accept the offer. Such a damn shame. I wasn't buying that Floyd is scared of Manny but after turning that offer down, I'm not so sure that Floyd is sure that he can beat Manny. He doesn't seem to be oozing with confidence like he usually does for his fights. Also, the fact that GBP didn't return any of ESPN's calls seems like they are very disappointed.

    Well at least we all know Pacman is dirty now. He has taken blood test in the past closer to the fight than 24 days in the past, but the opponents were not as good as Floyd. If you have nothing to hide, why run from a blood test for a whole month before a fight? Chalk another one up to performance enhancers.

    Child please. Keep telling yourself that. Floyd is just holding out as long as he can.

    IF YOU HAVE NOTHING TO HIDE THEN FIGHT!

    Gayweather fans are all alike.

    Has he failed any of those tests? No, you say?

    So, you don't actually know s***.

    Exactly...if MANNY has nothing to hide then take the blood tests.

    Cheater in my eyes...which is a shame b/c I am a Manny fan

    He takes blood test!

    He follows all the rules!

    Is Manny supposed to jump over hoops to please Gayweather?

    the boxing commission is trying to convince Floyd to fight!

    You don't think it's a bit strange that a guy won't take random tests when $40mm and being cemented as the undisputed best fighter on the planet are on the line?

    Look, I want this fight to happen and I want Manny to knock Floyd out, but I've always wondered how Pac-man jumps weight classes so easily and stays so powerful...I always gave him the benefit of the doubt and figured he was superman...but this makes me think he cheats.

    It isn't like you take a pint of blood. They prick your freaking finger. If he has nothing to hide, take the tests, the money and the crown

    Couldn't have said it better myself. If your boy has nothing to hide, he should man up and take the fight, not run from blood test that will tarnish his legacy. He has already lost the court of public opinion over this with most thinking he is dirty now. I have always liked Pacman, but just goes to show that nobody is beyond being dirty in todays sports.

    Also what is with the Child Please taking over the board? Has everyone in here become little old ladies? Outside of this bbs, that is the only other place I have seen anybody use that.

    i think its funny when people say pac should just take the test but there is more too it than that. Mayweather is playing games and posturing, like a little kid throwing a tantrum in the aisle of toys r us...begging for a gift he already has. You don't condone that behaviour.

    I see this more as Pac not having Mayweather get his way, which he always does, then him trying to hide something.

    and im completely impartial. I just want to see a good fight

    I honestly think it has nothing do with blood or anything. I think it's a matter of respect and Manny is being disrespected by Floyd.

    I also think they are trying to push the fight to the end of the year instead of the Spring.

    only time will tell. If Manny doesn't fight Floyd I WILL agree with you.

    40M is a lot of Money. So if I were Manny, I wouldn't take that substance that he (allegedly) takes every fight and take that 40M home, win or loss.

    But it's not about the money Blake...

    I just assume all these bastards on are on something at some point and I have no problem with that. In fact, if it makes them more entertaining as fighters then I prefer it. Floyd is looking pretty bad to me in this situation.
