The fight is officially off!

Shame you couldn't reach an agreement this week!

Bob Arum has announced the proposed super fight between Floyd Mayweather Jr and Manny Pacquiao is officially off after the two sides failed to come to an agreement over the method of drug testing.

This is actually some of the worst boxing related news I have heard in a while as I was pretty pissed when I heard that the Pavlik/Williams had been scrapped but this is a different level.

I personally think the no testing for 14 day before the fight that Floyd claimed he offered is resonable but meh I’m not a world class boxer so I wouldn’t know the effects it would have (although I have given blood and trained later the same day!)

Both sides have said their piece on the break down in negotiations but all the talk is irrelevant all that matters is that the fight is off!
