Manny Pacquiao: I Didn’t Do Steroids

There’s a story online, making its rounds, claiming that a former sparring partner of Manny Pacquiao is saying that he used to “juice-up” the champion with steroids.

Many fans has reacted to the story saying it’s total fabrication.

Team Pacquiao fired back with this statement:

“An anonymous post on an internet forum claims an unidentified former Filipino sparring partner injected me with steroids before my fight with Oscar de la Hoya and in subsequent fights. This is completely false, totally fabricated, and, not surprisingly, leveled by someone who will not even identify himself. I did not even have a Filipino sparring partner during my training for the fight against De La Hoya or for any fight since then.

I have never taken steroids, HGH, or any banned performance-enhancing drug. Period. My success in the ring is due to hard work, belief in God, and the support of my fans. Like every boxer, I am required to take drug tests in connection with every professional fight in the United States. I have passed every one, including my fight against De la Hoya and my most recent victory against Shane Mosley.

I will fight to protect my hard-earned good name and reputation.”
