Floyd Mayweather, Jr. like his father has again shown his true color by issuing statements insinuating that the Philippines is a haven for enhancement drugs and that Pacquiao is a user of these drugs to boost his strength and win his fights in the process.
These irresponsible statements have filtered into the mainstream of Philippine media as millions of Filipino boxing fans condemned Mayweather's insinuations that Pacquiao is an enhancement drug user and the Philippines, a drug haven.
In a news article by Dennis Guillermo of The Examiner
, Mayweather was quoted to have said, 'the Philippines got the
best enhancement drugs'. The popular sports writer was referring to the 'Sirius Shade 45 interview with rapper and hardcore boxing fan RA The Rugged Man'.
Filipino boxing fans have posted varying reactions from the Dennis' news article condemning Mayweather for being a coward by opting to fight less capable boxers instead of facing Manny Pacquiao, the world'most popular boxer and one of the most influential people in the world according to Time magazine.
The news article elicited some interesting and funny comments from boxing fans. Here are some of these comments:
Master Yoda says:

I dont understand why people got manipulated to spend their money to watch this joke fight. We got fooled by him. im not going to watch any of his fights anymore unless if he challence the best fighters out there on his division and up.
Right after Manny Pacquiao demolished Ricky Hatton of England early this year, Floyd's father insinuated that the reason why Pacquiao is winning over some of the world's great boxers could be traced to the Filipino boxer's use of enhancement drugs.
This insinuation drew massive reaction from Filipno boxing fans, most of them saying that Pacquiao has never been found have used drugs either as an athlete or as an ordinary person.
Realizing the truth and veracity of his accusations, the elder Mayweather retracted his accusations and later issued a public apology.
But the harm has been done and tarnished Pacquiao's image as a credible role model for the Filipino youth and for boxing fans around the world.
