As I mentioned in my leadup to Floyd Mayweather vs Andre Berto, Mayweather has gotten so arrogant in always getting his way @ MGM Floyd that he is increasingly acting out in unprofessional ways empowered by the unholy alliance with USADA and the Vegas commish who, ahem, happens to be the former FBI director if you want to consider all the problems with credibility that department has had over these many decades.
Now days before the Berto fight, another big shoe has finally dropped on Mayweather in a riotous circus of backbiting revelations involving him illegally being administered IVs of saline, vitamins, and water in his home hours after the weighin of the Manny Pacquiao fight. Such a procedure is banned by most drug testing protocols due to it being a prime method of masking drug use in athletics. Since Mayweather has never had a weight problem and would only need to lose about 4 lbs from his walking around street weight which also happens to be his fightweight, there is no reason for him to be needing IVs unless something was medically wrong with him, in which case he would be in a proper medical setting.
He was caught in the act by the USADA who are supposed to notify the
Vegas commish, but didn’t. Mayweather applied for an exemption many days later which unbelievably was granted by the notorious Travis Tygart run USADA that has now caused a bureaucratic rift with the Vegas commish in a typical American ham-handed power struggle over who’s preeminent in this circle of jerks.
Like Will Rogers noted folks, I only know what I read and don’t make this stuff up. “It” happens as the saying goes and “it” happens a lot in boxing since the general intelligence level of the hacks associated with boxing and drug testing is almost exclusively self serving. They certainly don’t test themselves, you can bet on it. Not only, incredibly they couldn’t even get their scorecards right in boxing’s biggest fight ever, Pacquiao vs Mayweather, only in boxing do these kind of monkey shines go on and on and on and on in perpetuity.
While sounding impressively damning on top of Mayweather’s other 3 alleged failed tests, I don’t discount his ability to slip these accusations since his stink never stinks after his minions at the commish and USADA hose everyone down with rosewater. We’ll have to follow the sordid story to see what happens next. Might they suspend Mayweather before the Berto fight…nah, probably not, only in boxing!
