    I also read an interview where Freddie Roach told Shane Mosley he couldn't fight Manny for two reasons:

    1. There wasn't enough money
    2. He was too good of a fighter

    That combined with the newest bloodtest bull**** makes me think either one of them or both of them are afraid to fight and make excuses up.
    22 - 5'10@236lbs!
    Bench - 325 (old)
    Squat - 455x2 (old)
    Deadlift - 500(old)

    Total: 1280lbs 100% raw




    The key to my exercise program is this one simple truth: I hate my body.

    Yeah, my understanding of that interview was that Shane was too good of a fighter for the amount of money the fight would bring in for Pacquiao to risk losing. In other words, if he thought Manny had a chance at losing, he'd better be getting a big payday and Shane wasn't it.

    As for Roach, he's a great trainer but he talks so much crap. I wish he'd just shut up most of the time.

    Manny is a bitch.
    how does this change anything? Manny agreed to a blood test 14 days out from the Mayweather fight. that still wasn't good enough for Pretty Boy.

    especially when coke is in your system in a matter of seconds..

    lulz..

    regardless,, there are plenty of other performance enhancers that can do some work within 14 days.. If I were fighting him and knew he had been busted in the past, I would demand 3-5 days..

    Pacquiao has never been busted for anything. And he actually agreed to testing 24 days before the proposed fight with Mayweather, which is similar to what he is doing with Clottey.

    Now Shane Mosley on the other hand (Floyd's new opponent) has been busted before with the whole Balco thing, but he agreed to random testing for the fight with Mayweather.

    exactly, Manny has never been busted. Not that that really means anything....
