Floyd Mayweather using PEDS with Xylocaine

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 dug an old article from 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…

paquio should insist on the fight and drug testing ( includeing xylocaine ) floyde is an oppertunistic fighter, looking for timeing of fights to give him an advantage or any other way he can get it ( e.g. sucker punch of Ortiz)
Paquio needs to insist on the testing for this and fight in november, and not let floyde dictate anything to him…after all Paquio got more PPVs last fight than floyde did….

people who talk about irony do not know the fefinition of irony. irony very seldom occurs in real life, but the mayweather camp is an ironical bunch, if you get the humor! drug pushers accusing a fighter who never tested positive for illegal substances. classic! margarito camp accusing pacquiao of illegal hand wraps? pure irony! i think people are going to have to realize that pacquiao is the real deal. he has to be one of the most scrutinized fighters in boxing, because a few people in the mayweather camp made false allegations, and a lot of people think that manny’s a cheater. don’t accuse somebody of cheating, until he gets caught cheating. if and when that happens, i’ll eat my words and cast the first stone.


peace out y’all!
