RUMOR KILLER: Floyd Mayweather Jr DID NOT Fail a Post-Fight Drug Test Following Cotto Bout

The infamous “#1 Underground Breaking Sports News” reporter Incarcerated Bob is reporting that he has received breaking news via a source that Floyd Mayweather Jr. has failed a post-fight drug test following this past Saturday’s bout against Miguel Cotto. He tweeted:

  Since this rumor hit Twitter earlier, many have been asking for answers. Brent Brookhouse, managing editor of BloodyElbow.com, took to Twitter to debunk the report. Brookhouse stated that he contacted the Nevada State Athletic Commission and was told that all tests for “drugs of abuse” for the fight came back clean. He was also told that testing for Performance Enhancing Drugs haven’t even come back yet and won’t be available until Friday. Here are the tweets from Brookhouse:

 

These tweets were then confirmed by Sports Illustrated’s Chris Mannix. Mannix tweeted:

UPDATE: ESPN boxing reporter Dan Rafael has also dismissed Bob’s report on Twitter. He tweeted:

So take all of this for what it’s worth at the moment, but it looks like one man’s attempts at stirring the pot and being the first to break a story are inaccurate.
