Should Pacquiao do random blood testing for his fight with Antonio Margarito?
By Marquise Bullock: Okay, we all know random blood testing isn’t required for the November 13th fight, but should Manny Pacquiao (51-3-2, 38 KO’s) go through with it just to make a point against his opponent Antonio Margarito? Pacquiao is sitting on the boxing thrown right now and he could demand anything from the Mexican slugger, just as you’ve seen with the unforgiving catch weight of 150 pounds. Antonio Margarito is a proven cheater, whether he likes it or not, but sadly some boxing fans believe the same about Pacquiao. So should Pacquiao take blood testing all of the way up to the fight to prove a point.
I think it would be great if Pacquiao were to do this. He could set the example Floyd was trying to set about cleaning up the sport, and proving he’s clean at the same time. Now, I don’t care what anyone says Margarito is a big man. At welterweight he gave Paul Williams all he could handle, even smiling when Williams hit him. Pacquiao has his hands full no doubt. But if he did testing up until the fight and demolish Margarito, that would silence all critics. Seeming that Margarito is the bigger man and Pac is the smaller man, a quick knockout would unfortunately look suspicious. The only reason why Shane Mosley knocked Margarito out is because, he’s just the natural bigger, harder hitting man. Pacquiao usually throws punches in many bunches to dismantle his opponents.
If Mayweather was to see Pacquiao do random testing up until the fight, it would silence him because he’ll know if they ever fight (which I’m starting to doubt) they’ll be on an even play ground that “Pretty Boy” Floyd complains about. But it’s a good idea because Pac’s team are blabbing their mouths about how they’ve finally agreed to the random testing up until the fight, so why not start now?
