According to an article in Newsday, some in the boxing world are starting to question whether Manny Pacquiao may be using steroids or not. Since 2002 his weight has increased by 25 pounds.
In the past five years he has a won more than 16 fights. Twelve of these bouts were one by knockout. He has captured another half a dozen titles, four in which were in another weight class.
His next opponent is most likely going to be Floyd Mayweather Jr. It is thought by many that this could end up being the biggest fight of the year, some aren’t to sure that the fight will take place though especially if Floyd follows his fathers advice.
He told Newsday that he feels things just aren’t on the up and up with Pacquiao.
"If it was me, I wouldn't fight him," said Floyd Mayweather Sr., father of the fighter expected to be Pacquaio's next opponent in what could be the richest fight in history. "Whether I could whip him or not, I wouldn't fight him, because things ain't right. I'm pretty sure that's what it is."
While I myself find it hard to believe that such a small guy can be using steroids. It doesn’t mean that it isn’t a possibility. I think it has more to do with the 30 million that Mayweather is demanding from the fight.
