Blood feud kills fight

MANNY Pacquiao will not fight Floyd Mayweather next March because a blood testing stalemate wiped out what could have been the richest fight in boxing history, says promoter Bob Arum.

The planned showdown between Filipino hero Pacquiao, a seven-division world champion, and unbeaten US star Mayweather could have brought each fighter as much as $US40 million ($A45.49 million).

Arum, Pacquiao’s promoter, said Mayweather’s request to have stricter US Anti-Doping Agency testing methods, including possible random blood tests within days of the bout, killed any hope of a deal.
