|Official statement from Manny Pacquiao

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.
