No More Drug Test: Pacquiao vs Clottey Fight

Joshua Clottey did not demand for drug testing for Manny Pacquiao like that proposed by Floyd Mayweather Jr., while their possible fight was in the prime of negotiation. Since the match did not push through due to disagreement in the testing setup, the Pacquiao vs Clottey fight surfaced up.

Ghanaian Joshua Clottey did not push for the drug testing due to the belief and deep respect that Manny Pacquiao is a sport and does not cheat the whole boxing discipline.
Perhaps Clottey didn't ask for further drug testing because the Lone Star State has lax drug testing rules for boxers. The Texas Dept. of Licensing and Regulation won't be drug testing the boxers before and after their bout, a spokesman told the Daily News. Since the bout is for Pacquaio's WBO welterweight title, however, the WBO will require both fighters to undergo urine testing after the bout, promoter Bob Arum said.
It's a good product that the match between Pacquiao and Clottey is finally going to take its course this weekend and we will be witnessing the fight live via PPV or at the actual event, Cowboy Stadium, Arlington, Texas.

I think it is ridiculous that they are not drug testing. No matter how much you trust or respect somebody, that should not stop them from testing. Drug Testing should be a requirement from the boxing commission.
