Mayweather denying IV claims
- Updated: September 10, 2015
A statement was just released to the media from Floyd Mayweather just one day following the investigative report published by SB Nation, penned by Thomas Hauser, which revealed that Mayweather had received vitamins and supplements intravenously the day prior to his May 2 bout against Manny Pacquiao.
“As already confirmed by the USADA Statement, I did not commit any violations of the Nevada or USADA drug testing guidelines. I follow and have always followed the rules of Nevada and USADA, the gold standard of drug testing.”
Mayweather stressed that he was the athlete who proposed more stringent testing in the sport of boxing.
“Let’s not forget that I was the one six years ago who insisted on elevating the level of drug testing for all my fights. As a result, there is more drug testing and awareness of its importance in the sport of boxing today than ever before.
“I am very proud to be a clean athlete and will continue to champion the cause.”
