“You’re telling me this little midget, 5’5 or 5’4, 5’6 the most, put on 15 to 17 in natural weight and his team is going to try and explain it saying he eats 7,000 calories a day and he just burns it. If you eat 7,000 calories a day and you’re 5’5, 5’6 my man you are not going to looked ripped, you’re gonna look a little bloated.” as Malignaggi openly said at the Boxing Truth Radio accusing Manny Pacquiao of taking some performance enhancing drugs or steroids. That issue never died down and as long as Manny continues to dominate bigger oppositions it will be a never ending fiasco. Floyd Mayweather Sr., Malignaggi and all those crab pulling guys can only say and accuse all they want but the fact that Manny Pacquiao has passed all the drug tests before and after fights tells you all those pointless finger pointing have no basis. Manny was struggling to make it at 130 lbs. so after the Marquez fight he move up one division higher and fought David Diaz. His transition from lightweight all the way up to the welterweight division isn’t done over night and Manny could not have done it without his strength and conditioning coach Alex Ariza applying the fundamentals of Plyometrics. Has Paulie seen how Pacquiao trains? That’s why all of those doubting Thomases who have seen Manny train became a firm believer of his greatness because he is like an animal that spends hours and hours in the gym and running through high elevation mountains. That is Manny’s trade secret and that gave him the endurance, determination and confidence in every fight. “Worked hard in practice because if you worked hard the fight would be easy” Manny’s favorite quote. So what’s Paulie Malignaggi’s babbling mouth is talking about? Because he was envious that Manny took all the fighters that have beaten him in such an easy fashion (Hatton and Cotto) or is he looking for a mega fight with Manny? That would never happen because if he can’t handle a punch of Hatton and Cotto how much more if he fights the little midget from the Philippines. If Paulie wants to talk then I hope he look for facts and basis before he opens his mouth because nobody will take him seriously. And I hope this December 12 Juan Diaz will give him a beating just in case it could straighten up his small head.
