    Default VADA/Pac not being tested???

    I don't want to accuse anyone of being on something if there is no evidence. Suspicion is just not enough to accuse. Wonder aloud maybe but not enough to accuse. But if this is true then this is clearly wrong. VADA states that 8 weeks is the proper testing time per their policy. We are down to a month before Pac/Rios and Pac has not and is not going to be tested until he arrives in China I really don't want a top boxing star to be dirty but if this is true I can no longer act like I'm not suspicious all over again with Pac. The point of random testing is moot if he can't be tested in the Philippines. So Pac calls for random testing and picks the agency, VADA, but only Rios is subjected to it? That is essentially what we have here. If Rios just wanted to be subjected to random testing to show the world he is clean then that is great but Pac called for this and as it appears he really only wants his opponent to take the test. I am just wondering aloud here but this has a ring of a guy wanting to cheat but to make it fully effective he makes sure you are clean. I really hope if this is not true then this gets cleared up soon by Team Pac with some kind of assurance he has been and can be tested at any point while in the Philippines. If not, then I would like to know the answer to "Why did you call for random testing and specifically by VADA?" And why was this information not made clear to Team Rios beforehand? Am I the only disturbed by this? I would really like to know more and what other people think and feel about this. Heck, I always thought that Pac was going to beat the piss out him anyway but now I may feel for Brandon's health. I don't like this at all and I know Rios is not in position to walk away from the fight but he should at least make some noise about it.

    Simple solution, Pac can release his results. But this is the same garbage Montoya tried by spreading unfounded rumors that NOBODY backed up. Privacy is privacy, everyone deserves it. You can't let rumors dictate the truth as everyone sees it. I'm no fan of Pac but I feel for him in this instance. This is another situation that shows these guys can't win for trying. We say they should test, they do and we say we want results, dates etcetera. Support him for agreeing, because testing can not prove innocence it can only prove guilt.

    That is the point bro. Is he taking the tests? Being signed to it and actually taking them are not the same thing. When a VADA tester comes out and tells the Team Rios that Pac has not been tested and will not until he arrives in China you can't just say oh well at least he agreed. I hope something comes out that shows that this is not the case but this isn't some typical stuff here though. I think it is only fair if VADA lets every professional athlete know what the parameters of their boundaries are because it makes no sense for an American fighter to agree to VADA testing if they can not access random tests in the Philippines or any or other country for that matter. This is an aspect that needs to be addressed whether it is to clear up the confusion or make all fighters aware of their limitations. Take the tests sounds cool but it is far too brief and broad. Another link where Ariza goes in more detail about it. He sounds like he doesn't want to cross the slander line but he feels certain that what the testers told him as they tested Rios is true and Pac has not and will not be tested until he arrives in China. They usually release the dates of the testing but isn't that after the fight? I guess we'll see...unless we don't.

    You can't listen to Ariza who has a clear motive. The founder of VADA is on record stating Pac has already been tested. If she is lying VADA loses all credibility, and it will certainly come outt if she is lying so it doesn't seem likely she would.

    Let's play a game of "more likely"

    A)Ms. Goodman is lying putting her entire company in jeopardy
    or
    B)the guy with an axe to grind is grinding his axe

    Yeah, the more I read about it the more I am thinking that Ariza is trying to stir something up. He is dancing on a fine line with his statements. I'd like to know what Robert Garcia says. Goodman says that they can test fighters internationally so that is reassuring.

    Pac is quoted as saying that he has been tested twice as well. So I am glad to hear that. Pac is still the number 2 draw in boxing and I think we can still get to a Mayweather/Pac fight. I actually think we are headed that way. With the 2 biggest draws in boxing now advocating random testing this will put the pressure on the it being a normalcy instead of a request or negotiation.
