Drug row TKOs mega-fight

Weekend Argus (Saturday Edition) - - SPORT -

THE pro­posed mega-fight be­tween Manny Pac­quiao and Floyd May­weather is off, and May­weather said the Filipino fighter was to blame.

May­weather said Pac­quaio’s re­fusal to ac­cept a com­pro­mise on drug test­ing pro­ce­dures had scup­pered a fight that many say could have been the rich­est in his­tory. Pac­quiao filed a law­suit in a fed­eral court in Las Ve­gas al­leg­ing that May­weather and oth­ers de­famed him by falsely say­ing he had used per­for­mance-en­hanc­ing drugs.
