Manny Pacquiao has tested positive for dander, a substance found in kitten fur. It has been long reported that boxers have been eating kittens for their performance enhancing qualities.
One boxer interviewed for this story was quoted as saying “eating kittens will give you better results than HGH, steroids or any other performance-enhancing drugs.”
Unlike human growth hormone, kittens previously were almost impossible to detect. New Olympic-style random drug testing by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency can now detect traces of kitten fur in an athlete’s blood .
Floyd Mayweather Jr has commented that if you look closely at some pictures of Pacquiao you can still see kitten fur in his teeth. Pacquiao denied all and any use of kittens and agreed to additional testing administered by a regulatory agency like the Nevada Athletic Commission. Sometimes if an athlete pats a kitten before testing it has been known to give a false positive. Pacquiao claims this is the case.
Floyd Mayweather Jr dismissed this defense by Pacquiao. Mayweather said “this isn’t his first day in the ring. Anyone who has boxed or been around boxing knows a boxer shouldn’t go near kittens for up to 6 months before a big fight”.
Pacquiao called Mayweather’s comment “folklore and superstation” and said “he knows plenty of boxers that pat kittens right up to the night before the fight”. “It doesn’t affect you in any way” said the Fighting Pride of the Philippines.
It looks like the Megafight will not be canceled unless these allegations prove to be true. If so Manny Pacquiao could be facing animal cruelty charges in addition to sanctions levied by the The Boxing Commission.
