Manny Pacquiao Agrees To 14-Day Testing Window, Says ‘Mayweather Has No Reason Not To Fight Now’

By Randall Stevens   /   Published 05/23/10

Manny Pacquiao and Floyd MayweatherAfter Floyd Mayweather's defeat of "Suger" Shane Mosley last month, the big question has been: will a fight against Manny Pacquiao be next?

Well, it looks like the mega-fight is back on.

Shortly after Pac-Man won a seat on Congress in his native country the Philippines recently, negotiations for a fight between himself and Money Mayweather began ... for the second time. However, Mayweather was still said to be holding firm on his stance for Olympic-style drug testing.

But now, a compromise may have been met.

According to the BBC, Pacquaio is agreeing to a 14-day cut-off -- leading up to the fight -- for blood testing, an offer Mayweather said he offered originally, but was denied.

"I have agreed to it, but they should not draw much blood. They should only take what is necessary for the drug test," the Filipino boxer is quoted as saying.

A fight between Pacquiao and Mayweather -- who many regard as the two best pound-for-pound boxers in the sport today -- would likely be the biggest in boxing history.

"He [Mayweather] will no longer have a reason [not to fight]," said Pacquiao. "Let's see if that is really the reason."

Both fighters tried to make the fight happen earlier this year, but negotiations ceased after both sides failed to agree on terms regarding drug testing.

They both went on to take separate fights, and both were victorious. Pacquiao defeated Joshua Clottey, and Mayweather beat Shane Mosley in a decision. Following Mayweather's win, talk began about a possible match against Pac-Man, and now, things seem to be nearly finalized.

At press time, nothing had been announced officially, but previous statements from Pac-Man's camp said the potential fight would take place in November.

    FINALLY...

  • http://www.vnvtelecomprovider.com Uragon

    I have just read another column saying Mayweather Sr that his Lil Duck floyd will not fight Manny Pacquiao. Floyd shall be branded as a coward for making excuses to avoid the fight with Manny. His fight with Shane just not really impressive. Poor people who paid to watch that fight. It was boorrrinngg. 1.4m PPV buys means 1.4m morons.

  • Lito Nucum

    Well,its really interesting whats happening. But I still doubt it will happen, at least not this year. Floyd will come up with something again.

  • Lito Nucum

    I can see the writing on the wall, this fight will not happen. Ellerbe's statements, random is random, means they will not agree even at 14 days cut-off date. The insinuations of the Drug Agency 14 days is not acceptable. Yet they stop the test for Floyd 18 days before the fight, what a hipocrecy is that. It would be better for Arum to negotiate without the media

    I hope that they just go ahead and have this fight so we can finally see who the best boxer is

  • smart guy

    haha no more excuses for floyd..

  • http://fd weytr

    14 Day cutoff! Manny is hiding something!

    I liked him, but come on! Manny is doing something wrong! He is a coward!

  • BAWSE2ULOOKOUTS

    PAC-MAN IS ALWAYS IN DA MEDIA RUNNIN HIS FAT MOUF!! U WONT B 4LONG AFTER FLOYD BUST HIS CHOPS>WORD OF ADVICE THERE'S NOWAY U CAN WIN UR TOO SMALL,TOO SLOW,NOT STRONG ENOUGH,TOO WILD,UNDISAPLEND W/UR PUNCHES U PRETTY MUCH HAV ABOUT DA SAME CHANCE AS MOSLEY HAD!! BOTTOM LINE IS JUS AGREE TO THE TEST AN ALL THE RULES OR STIMPLY STFU AN FIGHT MARQUEZ WHOM U BEEN DUCKING 4 QUITE SOMETIME NOW

  • Mr. Fully

    Bullshit! Pacman! do the right thing! World Titles belts is no longer on the line! trust the U.S.O.D.C. and do the fight mosley did it and you should do it! if not fight Amir Khan, Paul Williams, Andre Berto or retire. The same goes for Mayweather too. If yall don't fight fight somebody else.

  • Mr. Fully

    For Mayweather a lot of fights is still on the horizion such as the Cotto, Paul Williams, a Mosley 2 (yes! I said it and it should be on ESPN or HBO live), Andre Berto, Ricordo Mayorga, Chavez j.r., Amir Khan, Yuri Foreman, Timothy Bradley, Antonio Margitrito if not these fights! please retire!

  • Mr. Fully

    Thier is no sense of a Mayweather and a Sergio Martinez fight because Floyd is much lighter then Sergio. If Sergio just man up he should go after Andre Ward in which is undefeated too or Saiko Bika, Authur Abraham, Allen Green, Miranda, Paul Williams 2, Roy Jones J.r. , Chad Dawson, Carl Froch, Jeff Lacy, Jermain Taylor or fight Hopkins.

  • Mr. Fully

    For, Pacman, stop the bullshit! split the money 50/50 and take the drug test at the end of the day its not going to matter. Look what happen in the Dela hoya fight with Vargas. Vargas use steriods and drank Gatorade during rounds and none of that shit helped Vargas and he still lost. Either fight Mayweather, Marquez or the other fighters I listed above, or just retire.

  • Mr. Fully

    We Americans need to bring one of those World Heavyweight Title back, its killing boxing, we need some people to step up, I would do it if I ever have the chance but my focus is on the 140-154 division in boxing right now. If I ever be 175, I might as well fight as heavyweight and try to get it.

  • God

    Mayweather is a pussy bitch and Pacquiao will muder that nigger.

  • casstro

    hope the fight goes ahead . 2 gr8 boxers but MAYWEATHER is 2 good ,

  • b.k. da wrestler

  • Mike

  • http://www.vann-digital.com/ Vann Digital Networks

    How much yall wanna bet Manny Pacquiao still gon get knocked the fuck out after all this ying-yang that done been allover the media???

  • John Dumas

    Pacquiao-Mayweather fight is not going to happen. Mayweather will never fight Manny Pacquiao, no matter what, because he knows that Pacquiao is going to destroy him without mercy inside the ring. Mayweather is not a coward but he is afraid to only one, Manny Pacquiao. Losing to Pacqiao would be devastating for Mayweather because he wants to be remembered as undefeated greatest boxer of all time. Conclusion: Pacquiao-Mayweather fight will never happen, ever.

  • Boolsheeeting Mayweather

    Mayweather is plain afraid, discombobulated, apprehensive of his upcoming smackdown at the hands of the true pound4pound king. He is an animal that goes QUACK, QUACK, QUACK.

  • cd

    Please !!!! Mayweather is going to win, period. Pacquiao better not bleedin the ring, if he does, he will lose because he fainted from blood loss.....

  • Jigga

    Yawn...Until I hear a confirmation quote from Bobby Arum then I might believe the rumor. But meanwhile I think Pacman is juicing therefore he will not agree to anything less than 24 days.

  • http://www.motherman.com im_bangin_floyds_mom

    floyd will always find a way to back out from manny. nigga is scared of a loss.

    manny, shut that nigga's filthy mouth.

  • crist

    pacman do not deserve to fight a chicken mayweather!

  • brian

    where is the big-mouth Gayweather? what can u say now that Pacman agreed to a drug-test? i believe that u cant really show up in the ring with Pacman coz u know that at the end of the fight PACMAN will be the last man standing!

  • RealTalk

    Floyd Mayweather should consider versing and going up against Manny Pacquiao, Nonito Donaire, Chad Dawson, Paul Williams, Sergio Martinez, Miguel Cotto, Vyacheslav Senchenko, Winky Wright, Pongsaklek Wonjongkam, Breidis Prescott,Celestino Caballero, Yuriorkis Gamboa, Amir Khan,Miguel Vazquez, Kevin Mitchell ,Michael Katsidis,Antonio Margarito.

  • rolly

    The money involved in a mayweather/pacquiao fight is the catalyst. GREED will overcome. At least Pacquiao has the decency not to be openly discussing with the public unlike the other. Pacquiao talks of god, sportmanship, fair play. Isnt he an honorable person, uneducated, once a poorest of the poor, a person who eats rise of his hand called "PUSO" Heart in english. HE IS REALLY A GREAT PERSON...Does he not remind us of a son of carpenter.

  • zack

    mayweather are you going to fight pacman

  • Null

    The one who is truly hiding is the one who lied about the supposed "OLYMPIC STYLE" drug testing which never took place.....19 day cutoff for Floyd and 18 day cutoff for Mosley......we got tricked into thinking that Floyd would stand by his word that he wants help clean his sport.....So now Floyd will never accept Manny's 14 day cutoff cuz he's too afraid to fight a much smaller man....BOK BOK BOK !! Floyd u ain't a man !!

  • calikid

    HOW ALL U MUTHAFUCCCA SHUT UP WITH ALL THE HATE YALL KNO DAMN WELL YALL GONE WATCH DA FIGHT..DAMN YALL ACTN LIKE HOES ON HERE MAYWEATHER AND PACMAN IS THE BEST RITE NOW AND THIS FIGT WILL TKE PLACE

  • Baby Dame

    These guys are playing games with us fans for a huge pay day. Real boxing died a long time ago. Might as well watch WWE.

  • http://www.nustylze.com Urban Clothing

    It's still not a random drug test. The only reason pac man is saying the whole 14 day thing is because that is when mosley had his last test. If you tell some one they have 14 days to cheat then they will take 14 days to cheat. Keep the sport clean.

  • Wwdogg

    Everybody go to youtube and type in Mayweather vs Mosley.Go down to the one that says Pacquiao Exposed. Best 10 min video with nothing but the facts and truth i've seen thus far. Then get back and post comments.

  • SWGraffix

    Test 30 days before the fight. Then test 1 day after the fight. Then we'll see who is cheating.

  • Mr. Fully

    It seems to me none of you ass-Holes know nothing about boxing or even MMA. Yall need to stay the fuck off this post. We need real smart people who knows the sweet science. I bet 75% of yall can't even do a fraction, Bitches!.

    @Finally;
    You still doubt whos the best boxer is
    ? well, whos asking for more reason and whos trying to engaged. Its clear to me!!! A true warrior doesnt mind whats the other is on. if you are brave. you should be shouting " LET THE FIGHT BEGIN AND I'LL TEAR YOU OFF!" you will not hear that from Mayweather.

  • Avatar123

    If Pac is on METH, why his brother s@cks as a boxer? Pac should have shared this, its sad. That's because he has nothing to share. hes not on PEDS!!!!!!

  • Avatar123

    If America discovered the Moon and Mars, and this Meth Mayweather Sr. stated exist in the Phil. dont you think America should had known this too? I bet Osama would be shaking scared right now for American soldier has a meth that any bullet would bounce off.
