Anti-doping testers beware! There’s a new product that is impossible to detect.
The problem is that drug cheats don’t actually ingest this substance – they slip it to their rivals instead.
It’s performance-reducing dope, and if you believe recently dethroned South African junior-bantamweight champion Themba Joyi, a dose of this muti caused his defeat by Unathi Gqokoma last weekend.
Joyi is reportedly suffering from a mystery illness, the symptoms of which include a lameness on his left side, following his 10th-round TKO defeat.
After Sergio Martinez knocked out Paul Williams with a single punch to keep his world middleweight title, promoter Lou DiBella suggested Manny Pacquiao would be too scared to step up one more division to face the Argentinian boxer.
That’s a bit unfair.
There is no reason for Pacquiao to step up to middleweight (unless he wants to). If he keeps stepping up, he’ll eventually run into somebody who is simply too strong for him.
Anyway, the only fight for Pacman is Floyd Mayweather.
Manny Pacquiao is the greatest boxer of all time, says promoter Bob Arum, who has worked with legends like Sugar Ray Leonard, Marvin Hagler, Roberto Duran and Muhammad Ali.
Arum, who has also worked with Floyd Mayweather, believes that Pacquiao dominates with both fists in a way nobody else has.
Imagine if, just before the 2010 soccer World Cup final, Spain and Holland decided not to play.
Can you even think of a scenario in which the two teams simply walk away, each claiming bragging rights as world champs without actually settling the matter on the pitch?
The idea seems too ludicrous to comprehend, but that is exactly the situation facing boxing if Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather fail to slug it out.

Not only did he dominate the Mexican, but he also took his shots.
But now it’s time for Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather to oblige the boxing world – Pacman versus Pretty Boy.
I have my doubts the fight will come off, but that is surely the only bout that boxing fans truly want to see. David Haye against the Klitschko’s?
Not really. It’s all happening at welterweight.
Come on, Mayweather. Come on, Pacquiao. Forget about the contractual details over doping tests – do your jobs and fight!
First he fought with loaded gloves, now he’s ripping off Freddie Roach, the legendary trainer who has Parkinson’s disease.
Picking on somebody for their disability is not on. If Margarito can fight like Roach coaches, then he’ll have a chance against Manny Pacquiao this weekend.
To make matters worse, Roach is a really nice guy.
