Floyd Mayweather discussing PEDs is not a new thing. The twice-retired boxer made it his mission while negotiating with Manny Pacquiao, for strict and random drug testing. Mayweather was so adamant over Pacquiao being tested, it was the reason the fight was delayed till 2015.
Now, Mayweather is advocating for Canelo Alvarez to be allowed to fight Gennady Golovkin on May 5th, even though Alvarez tested positive for the fat burning supplement clenbuterol.
In a phone interview with FIGHT HYPE, Mayweather was shocked, but not looking to lay blame on anyone.
“I guess s*** happens…it’s crazy…I’m not really here to say nothing bad about Triple G or bad about Canelo,” claimed Mayweather, who beat Alvarez in 2013.
With a hearing now set for April 18th, where not only Alvarez’ fate, but the fate of the fight hangs in the balance, Mayweather feels that the potential money on the table shouldn’t be shirked to the side, but that Alvarez needs to be kept in line between now and May 5th.
“I think the fight still should happen…okay, so say he got busted, okay, so from here all the way to the fight, it should just be random blood and urine testing and then they should fight.”
