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.
