Paulie Malignaggi: Pacquiao should have been first to volunteer for random drug testing

Al Bello

Tonight on Twitter, Paulie Malignaggi blasted Manny Pacquiao for not taking random drug tests during his destructive run, and said he doesn't give him credit for some of his biggest wins.

Paulie Malignaggi, the former junior welterweight and welterweight titlist, often outspoken critic of the boxing business, and current Showtime commentator, took to Twitter tonight to discuss random drug testing, cheating in boxing that he (and many others) feels has gone ignored, and said that he doesn't give Manny Pacquiao credit for some of his biggest wins, thanks to Pacquiao not taking random drug tests during his "destructive" peak a few years back.

I'll say right now, right quick: Malignaggi is generally on the right track when he has criticisms of boxing again. But this time? Let me tell you: He's on the right track again. Bam! Swerve.

That said, Malignaggi has to my knowledge not taken any random blood tests during his professional career, either, but of course if we're just going by eye test, Paulie would certainly not fall under the banner of suspicion.

What do you think of Malignaggi's comments?
