Champion boxer Floyd Mayweather denies using banned IV drugs to give himself an advantage over boxer Manny Pacquaio in their May 2 bout.

One day before the boxing match, Mayweather was given an IV containing saline (salt water) and vitamins.

The drugs contained in the IV were not illegal, but the method of administration -- infused directly into his bloodstream -- was forbidden, according to a report on ESPN.com.

The U.S. Anti-Doping Agency gave Mayweather an exemption three weeks after the fight.

But the Nevada State Athletic Commission said the USADA did not have the authority to grant an exemption.

In a statement released today Mayweather strenuously denied using WADA-banned Intravenous drugs prior to the Pacquaio fight.

"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.

"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."

As reported earlier, the upcoming Mayweather vs Andre Berto prize fight will take place in an empty arena in Las vegas this coming weekend.

AS of Tuesday morning, over 2,100 tickets remained unsold and only 25 tickets have been sold for more than $1,000 on StubHub.

Mayweather will still walk away with a staggering fortune even if no one shows up to watch the fight.

    The Obama administration announced Thursday its teaming up with the New York City district attorney on a $79 million effort to speed testing of sexual assault evidence kits.

    The federal government will kick in $41 million in grants while New York will provide $38 million to clear a backlog of untested kits in 27 states.

    “When we solve these cases, we get rapists off the streets,” Vice President Biden said in a statement. “The grants we’re announcing today to reduce the national rape kit backlog will bring that sense of closure and safety to victims while improving community safety.”

    Biden is announcing the new funding at an event at the New York City medical examiner’s office alongside Attorney General Loretta Lynch and Manhattan District Attorney Cyrus Vance, Jr.

    Biden and other officials toured a New York crime lab with "Law and Order: Special Victims Unit" actress Mariska Hargitay before delivering speeches.

    Hundreds of thousands of evidence kits have gone untested by police departments across the country. Biden claimed 50 percent of previously unsolved rapes are solved when the kits are tested.

    Yall...

    I can't with the Bill Cosby allegations...new allegations below:

    “I don’t want to get graphic, but you know when you’re
    shocked you open your mouth a little bit. And that was my mistake. And
    then he just made this horrible mess all over me. And the hardest part
    was he gloated over my humiliation. And he reached into his pocket. He
    had, like, a big wad of Kleenex and he started cleaning me up. He was
    dabbing at me and by this time, I’ve closed my eyes because I really
    think I’m going to faint, and he said, ‘I’ve blessed you now. You know
    you’ve been blessed.’”- Linda Ridgeway Whitedeer

  • missmiami305

    Totally agree! I luv him for that very reason

  • aRoth

    Anybody ever read "Mama Black Widow" by Iceberg Slim? If so, your take?

  • iWasteTime

    I have so many questions.

  • SpillyNillie

    Chile...soooooo many...

  • aRoth

    Don't sound like she was under the influence to me.

  • SpillyNillie

    She wasn't, according to her story...

  • jeniefrumdabloc™

    Dude.......

  • SpillyNillie

    Her story is a little suspect, funny how it came out after Cosby was outed for having a fetish for leaving his children all over the place...can she even be linked to Cosby?

  • GuestSTAR

    Me to. Mayweather didn't need to cheat to beat Pacquio.
    I'm sure they'll say this is why he beat Pacquio, but Pacquico had been knocked out and lost a few other fights prior to his fight with Mayweather.
    I do believe that there will be a rematch tho. There's always more money in the rematch.

  • aRoth

    So what she trine to say now? What is her gripe about?

  • 7ate9

    Is is good? My dad had me order Icebergs first book for him on Amazon...Pimp something.

  • Buttercup

    What the....I have so many questions, but I'm sure the answers would only lead to more questions.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    LMBO @ "I've blessed you now. You know you've been blessed." Like for real. So she was shocked about what? And she opened her mouth wide enough for him to insert his mandom into her mouth? Or what? Look man, I think the majority of them are lying. I said it.

  • Just Keya

    Maybe I can't read well. SO the issue is not that it was drugs, but the IV?

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    What difference does it make? If he did, it only improved his two step :shrug: He didn't hit nobody and damn sho didn't knock anyone out :coffee: I thought he was going to do the stanky leg for a minute

  • Just Keya

    Me too.

  • MissHarlem

    I know he would advocate for clean sportsmanship so *ye shrug*

  • Buttercup

    So is she upset he jizzed in her mouth, that she didn't get a warning, or he had asparagus for dinner?

  • missmiami305

    Ikr. Give credit where it's due is all I ask. Floyd is a genius ref marketing and etc. Not to mention he is quick and trains hard. He always sets the pace of a fight and has the stamina and endurance to win. Of course matched with speed again. Critics forget the objective of boxing IS NOT TO GET HIT. and he has it mastered!!!!! I liv that he is going out with his last fight against another black man. Making sure dude gets a hefty payday. That in itself deserves respect to me.

  • I want to be free

    lmao @ stanky leg

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

  • Unita Lucinda “Lucy” Freebush

    I don't know about her, but I'm upset about the asparagus.

  • Just Keya

    I'm over Floyd. The most he is about to do, is Hit the Quan on who ever it is, he is fighting, and go home. I hope he retires in SILENCE.

  • Just Keya

    Dead @ Asparagus for dinner

  • Buttercup

    She should've made him have a kiwi because she probably knew what was about to go down.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Chile... I really don't understand.

    But more importantly, what happens when you have asparagus for dinner?

  • aRoth

    IDK, I was asking yall. His first book is Pimp and another one is Trick Baby.

  • Just Keya

    It makes your pee and jizze (lol) smell and taste BAD

    Um........

  • Buttercup

    WHALE, my friend told me that her boyfriend tastes bitter after eating certain foods- asparagus being one of the worst offenders. She's sure to always feed her babe lots of citrus fruits when they're together to offset that.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    I really need the full lie, I mean story. Where can I find it? Because I really need to know what she was in shock about and why she opened her mouth and let him stick his D in her mouth opposed to opening her mouth and screaming. And was she on her knees? Maybe she was really short. I just feel like there had to be some maneuvering for him to manage to get his thang in her mouth.

  • Blaque Mahogany

    Lmbo. I'm a long time lurker. Are you the one that's always like "my friend". Lol. No judgment. Lol.

  • Just Keya

    This! So you were in shock..ok...so when he started to put the tip in your mouth, why did you not bite it off? or close your mouth, or say no, or get your ass up....but you sat there all shocked and....sucked? Because I can't see him sticking it in your mouth and just letting loose and you did not help...IJS.

  • Buttercup

    Ahahaha. Maybe

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Jonathan Taylor Thomas is 34...Im not even that old and that makes me feel old...I use to love JTT.

  • Just Keya

    Whit, where did you just get that random information from? And is that the guy who was the middle son on Home Improvement?

  • Blaque Mahogany

    What probably happen was he dropped a penny and told her to pick it up. So she got down to pick it up and he was like aha and slapped her across the forehead with his D. Then she looked up in shock O (that's her mouth) and then he just stuck it in there. And then muscle memory took over. It was out of her control and she just began to bob and weave. And then he was like, "You have been blessed" as in she was really skilled but she didn't understand because she was still in shock. I mean if you really really really don't think about it...it makes perfect sense.

  • iWasteTime

    I'm mad he and I are the same age :wail:
    I thought he was older

  • SpillyNillie

    Kona! Now!

  • OpinionHated

    He sounds just like Lance Armstrong... narcissistic self....

  • iWasteTime

    you asked a few.
    Like shocked that he did what? and to completion?
    You wasn't on a lude either huh?

  • GuestSTAR

    EXACTLY, not to get HIT, that is the objective. After the Pacquio fight many were saying he moved/dodged too much, like WTF was he suppose to do, stand still and get hit. Many say Mayweather has only fought easy opponents, when in reality, him and Pacquio have fought the same people, with the exception of Bradley.
    I agree with you whole heartily about the last fight being fought with a black opponent and I think Mayweather did that on purpose or at least wanted to give the brotha a shot. I even brought that point up to my husband, BUT come on, at the end of the day, it boils down to money and A LOT of it and he will fight Pacquio again, although I do not believe Pacquio deserves a rematch.

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    :chase: that reads: gently place the b**** inside the mouth and hummmmmmm lmao

  • SpillyNillie

    Girlllllll...he slipped it your mouth that accidentally fell open and immediately released?!?!?!?? So it was at the tip just waiting to come out huh?

    Her lawyer should tell her to close her mouth (pun intended)

  • WHITTYwithWORDS

    Yahoo front page. and yes....lol

    New post. Rich YT folks

  • SugarFoot a.k.a Ty

    New post

  • OpinionHated

    WTF is this you mean to tell me rapes go unsolved cause they don't test the kits that they made some poor traumatized woman endure after being violated.... this is pure phuckery - it's just an example of a mans world at its finest - if men were getting dragged down alleys and gang raped not only would they have enough workers to test the kits but the punishment for rape would be death... nobody cares what happens to women but other women..

  • OpinionHated

    why is her mouth open even a little bit anywhere near his unsheated penis - bish bye - I hate to victim blame but bish ain't no way he dabbing semen off my damn chin if I didn't want it there... and she sitting there like an idiot being cleaned up - I'm not saying all the chicks he was with are money grubbing publicity ho's but the more they come out and open their mouth the more i'm giving them the side eye like ho sit down now do not pass go do not collect $200...

  • missmiami305

    Me neither about Pacman. It's funny cuz he tried giving the people what they wanted to see with delahoya, canello and although too late Pacman and they still complain. He allows folks to cash out and they ain't happy. Like come on....u can't please everyone. Most just mad that he cracked the code and makes no apologies for his success. I love it!!!! Tired of seeing us coon and always looking humble. They robbed him at the Olympics and after that MoneyMayweather was born

  • http://totallifechanges.com/PurTEA VanillaCaramel2shotsExpresso

    There is no way he wrote that statement ! I am so happy he let someone do that for him. He has made money and is business savvy.... Or he has the right people helping him. He waste slot of money to me but it's his legally.
