Promoter and MMA hater Bob Arum broke the news that talks for the mega fight between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather are over.

“It’s over, O-V-E-R … They’re viewed by the Pacquiao side as being partisan,” Arum said, referring to the USADA. “He doesn’t want to use them. I don’t want to use them. They’re so inflexible they can’t be used … As far as I’m concerned the fight is over … Can it be revisited in the autumn? We’ll see.” [FoxSports]

Lets hope that this is just a power play by Arum to get Mayweather to drop the issue of Olympic style drug testing. Both Pacquiao and Mayweather are reported to be making 30-40 Millions each for the fight.

    "Pacquiao's side has agreed to both urine and blood testing, but doesn't want testing immediately before the fight because Pacquiao believes giving blood so soon before a fight will weaken him. "

    WTF okay since when does givning a vile of blood 48hrs before and immediatly after a fight weakan you. Its only a vile of blood its not like he is giving a bag of blood away, for christ sake THE OLYMPIC ATHLETES DO THIS TESTING EVEN IN BOXING.

    I fully believe based upon this that PAC is hiding something otherswise why wouldnt he just do it??? Come on you have chance to beat the best fight in the world today and make 40M??? there is no fighter out there who would not take this deal unless they were hiding something and new they would get caught, its simple its not like Mayweather is hiding anything he wants the testing to be done because like myself after this came out i think PAC is on HGH or something which can not be found in URINE TESTS ONLY BLOOD, FUCKING CHEATER>

    dude, you must not know what giving blood does to atheletes! you need all the oxygen-carrying cells as you can, especially for boxers. you try going to a blood donation drive and then go run a marathon! you'll see what i mean.

    When they take blood they take a vial of blood which is so small that you wouldn't even notice any affects of it. Its not like you give that much at all. This is why I don't see how people hate Dana White so much. He puts big fights together. I just figure people like Dana White makes big fights and make their sport popular whereas Arum or Don King ruined boxing and can't even get one of the biggest fights in boxing history to happen. Easy to see why boxing is a dying sport.

    For proper blood testing, which I have done because of my profession, you actually give a fair amount of blood. It can be a very mentally/emotionally draining experience to see a pretty decent amount of your own blood going into a vial knowing you have a competition coming up. Granted, I don't believe it has a true medical effect on one's performance, but remember, some coaches still tell their athletes not to have sex the day before a competition because it will effect their performance. When people believe an old-wives' tale, it becomes real to them, and has an effect on their performance.

    Mayweather needs to man the hell up.

    I think I read on Yahoo that the things that'll show up on the urine test is the same as the things that show up in a blood test. Correct me if i'm wrong.

    Mayweather is a bitch, weather Pacman is hiding something or not, Mayweather is still the lil baby bitch for doing this.

    Oh yeah, Bob Arum is that homo-phobic idiot who sees sexuality in MMA. I think it might be jumping to conclusions to say that Pacquio is on something. Why does Mayweather request this strict testing?

    DEREK, you obvious dont know that the blood testing that Mayweather is asking for is the same testing format that ALL OLYMPIC ATHLETES GO THROUGH INCLUDING OLYMPIC BOXING, so to be fair its not to far off to request this and if PAC has nothing to hide than why not just do it i mean all the olympic boxers have to do this so what is the big deal unless your hiding something, urine test do not detect HGH only blood tests can detect this among others illegal supps.

    PAC is a bitch and Mayweather just wants this fight to be fair, no matter if PAC is on something or not it sure has put Mayweather in the front of this fight because of the mind games invlolved.

    TIM, this isn't the freaking olympics. this is PROFESSIONAL boxing. they already test for steroids, HGH, and doping in the current standards for all professional championship fights. that's how james toney got caught when he moved up to heavyweight. that's how RJJ also got caught in one of his previous fights. my point is that mayweather asking for this olympic testing is BULLSHIT. mayweather should treat this fight like any other fight. he talks about how pacquiao is nothing, but then he wants Pacman to go through this extra bullshit?! this fight should be treated like any other championship fight. make it happen, is all i am saying.

    Yeah, Tim, I know in the past you said your profession has something to do with blood testing, but I can't help but think that they have a way for testing for HGH. If they only do piss tests, and the piss test doesn't detect HGH, doesn't that mean that theoretically EVERYONE could be on HGH?

    if Mayweather really wanted to fight Pac, He wouldn't come up with such demands. Last time I checked he's the challenger. If he wanted to proof that he's that good, he wouldn't duck Cotto,retire for the 2nd fight with De la hoya and now Pac-man? if he really wanted Pac, he would of fought him instead of Marquez. I think he just ran out of place to hide.

    i respect PBF's skills, but he needs to put his skills where his mouth is. he's been ducking pacman since pacman destroyed DLH, then hatton, and then cotto. PBF is next and he needs to realize his perfect record is now on the line.

    The main problem your missing is with a piss test you can MASK certain supps as in HGH, they test for a certain level of reading where as in the blood test you can not mask it and it is well detected, bottom line is blood testing is more thorough than urine tests and thats my point along with PAC being a bitch about this.

    What is PAC is on something??? i personaly like PAC but this makes me wonder why wouldnt he want to do a simple blood draw 48hrs prior to a fight if the olympic boxers do it there is no reason he cant do it and saying its olympic vs professional is bullshit ITS THE SAME FUCKING THING…BOXING so it doesnt matter. The question should be why is PAC fighting this testing process????
