Now it's Mayweather's move on Pacquiao testing

Manny Pacquiao appears ready to submit to random blood testing, but will that be enough to put him in the ring with Floyd Mayweather Jr.? Fans have longed to see Pacquiao put his WBO welterweight title on the line against Mayweather, but disagreements over the testing has clouded the prospects of the super bout occurring.

Bob Arum has now stated that Pacquiao will meet Mayweather’s demands and submit to random testing. But there still may be one snag. According to reports, they will not agree to the USADA performing the tests, instead calling for a neutral testing organization.

While this news has sparked a great deal of press, it is uncertain if Mayweather will agree to this stipulation. Mayweather wants the USADA to perform the test because he believes they are credible and he apparently is weary of tampering.

So although testing has been initially agreed to, get ready for the circus that will now ensue as both sides haggle over what constitutes a neutral organization. If Mayweather really wants this fight to happen, he will agree to a credible and supervised testing process by another recognized organization. If the whole concept of testing is just a smokescreen to avoid the matchup, then let the games continue.

The ball is now in Mayweather’s court. He is already eyeing Amir Khan as his next opponent and Pacquiao may be temporarily off of his radar. It’s my guess that we will now see endless squabbles over the USADA issue as well as cut-off dates for such testing. This could also create a precedent for future expensive testing for other fighters.

The two sides need to come to an agreement soon and make this happen. Politics do nothing for the sport and this issue is really no closer to being resolved than it was before this announcement.
