Here's a shocker (not that I care a rat's.....):

Apparently a proposed "super fight" between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather might be put on hold because of Pacquiao's refusal to submit to "Olympic-style" drug testing.

The proposed test is sought by Mayweather.

Why?

The Mayweather camp doesn't want their fighter in the ring with any disadvantage.

Real or perceived.

Even with a tremendous amount of money at stake, perhaps Floyd Mayweather and his handlers know something we don't.

Yet.
