The Canadian adviser of Manny Pacquiao said on Monday that “Floyd Mayweather simply has to go to church regularly to know where the Filipino’s vaunted strength and power come from.” Reacting to a statement made by Mayweather’s handlers that Pacquiao should undergo an Olympic-Style drug testing in the weeks leading to their March 13, 2010 fight, Mike Koncz said he welcomes Leonard Ellerbe’s demand that such tests be done to ensure that the two fighters are clean when they finally collide. “It’s amusing,” said Koncz from General Santos City, home of Pacquiao. “There’s no problem with that but if he wants to get an answer right away, he better visit the church so he’d know why.” Ellerbe is one of two key Mayweather advisers. The other is Al Haymon. Top Rank and Golden Boy Promotions are in the final stages of finalizing the Pacquiao-Mayweather bout that is expected to break box-office and PPV records.
