Marquez: No Olympic-style drug testing
Juan Manuel Marquez won't ask Manny Pacquiao to undergo Olympic-style drug testing.
Juan Manuel Marquez said he doesn't intend to ask the Nevada State Athletic Commissionfor Olympic-style drug testingprior to his upcoming fight against Manny Pacquiao, according to examiner.com.
Marquez (52-5-1, 38 knockouts) is scheduled to challenge Pacquiao (53-3-2, 38 KOs) for the WBO welterweight championship Nov. 12 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, the third meeting between the two legends.
He also is scheduled to fight David Diaz on July 16, with his WBO lightweight belt on the line, but that bout appears to be falling apart due to a dispute over the money being offered to Diaz.
