Xylocaine are common to people who are into dialysis the pain of going into that process is very excruciating and so the part where needles are place are giving a small amount of Xylocaine to ease the pain. This drug performs numbness or anesthetic behaviour which helps patients go through the ordeal. But like any drug these substance are banned when used by athletes to gain an upper hand in competitions especially in any contact sports when both fighters inflict pain on to each other. Xylocaine is banned in almost all states in the US except for Las Vegas Nevada.
Floyd Mayweather Jr. has recently been accusing Manny Pacquiao of taking steroids and PEDS which triggered a global dispute on Manny’s achievements. There was no evidence and ever since Manny fought in U.S. soil he never tested positive in illegal drugs. It was a character assassination being headed by a former drug pusher who served 5 years in jail, Floyd Sr. The once deemed as the fight of the century ended without one punch being thrown with litigation coming on GBP and the Mayweathers it’s becoming more and more complicated if this fight will ever happen.
Recent news from Scott Heritage of Examiner.com dug an old article from insideboxing.com stating Floyd is using Xylocaine because of his hand problems “Such painkillers could be more dangerous in the long term, since fighters with numbed hands hit harder since they cannot feel their hands at a time when they could be unknowingly damaging them.” As stated. This drug as i stated is banned in all other states except Nevada which leads to one answer on a mind boggling act by Mayweather and Golden Boy Promotions to hastily cancel their trip to Dallas without giving any concrete explanation to their sudden change of mind. The Dallas Cowboys newly built stadium can accommodate 100,000 people with state of the art technology are the first company who offered both Pacquiao and Mayweather a guaranteed 25 million payday. We are now discovering the many loopholes GBP and Mayweathers are covering.
Floyd was quick to open his mouth about drug testing which automatically backfire on him. If I were team Pacquiao I would counter Floyd’s drug testing by saying yes to his demands but it should be done in Dallas Texas. Now talk about irony…
