Nevada orders urine tests for Pacquiao, Mayweather

The head of the Nevada boxing commission ordered Manny Pacquiao

and Floyd Mayweather Jr. to submit to urine tests Monday as a way

of trying to break the impasse that has threatened to derail their

proposed March 13 megafight.

Pacquiao and Mayweather must submit to the tests within 48 hours

or face possible fines or suspension by the Nevada Athletic


The tests, which were ordered by commission chairman Pat

Lundvall, fall under an out-of-competition testing regulation which

went into effect last year and allows state boxing authorities to

order boxers to comply. Kizer said about 30 of the tests have been

ordered in the last 18 months.
