Almost immediately after reports broke out about Floyd Mayweather’s alleged drug-testing violations, Manny Pacquiao had some choice words for his rival.
Mayweather was being accused of breaking some protocols on drug-testing, when he was believed to have recevied IV treatment prior to his May 2nd bout against Manny Pacquiao. It also posed an ironic scenario, since Mayweather has been vocal about Performance Enhancing Drug use in boxing, and even went as far as making claims about Pacquiao being on steroids.
Pacquiao made his response through a text message to Abac Cordero of the Philippine Star.
“Truth finally came out and I was vindicated. Mayweather camp used to accused (sic) me of using PED. Now, look at what happened. I hope Floyd Mayweather would learn a good lesson out of it.”
"Now look at what happened,” he added. “I hope Floyd Mayweather would learn a good lesson out of it.”
Both Mayweather and the United States Anti-Doping Agency have already released their official statements, wherein the two parties denied all allegations.
