    As I predicted Pascal was trying to pull a PR stunt, and it failed so miserably in every conceivable way.

    It turns out that Pascal doesn't want VADA but instead an independant company to do the testing. But it gets better, because Pascal is willing to pay more money for the independent company than he is to pay for the VADA testing, which is considerably cheaper.

    Of course Kathy Duva being the genius that she is, called Pascal and his team on the PR stunt.

    He"s juicing, remember who is behind Pascal since the Bute fight. Not that I"m defending Bute with anything who was pathetic until the twelve round.

    Aye. Pretty much what I suspected. I also see it as a sign that Pascal doesn't completely believe that he's going to win.

    No testing labs are neutral. Pascal's right.

    Well, you were right in the sense that Pascal won't be paying for any VADA tests. Still, it would appear that Kovalev might get VADA tests done, now. The only thing to really find fault with Pascal here is bitching about conditions after signing the contract.

    ??????

    ....and not going through with testing done by the world's most trusted anti doping agency after making a big fuss about testing and accusing people of P.E.D use .

    He already has a lab that he goes through. Unless people are going to make a strong case that his lab is corrupt, I don't see any problem with him going through that one. The problem is him bitching after signing the contract, not the actual testing. The problems with Kathy Duva's argument about not trusting Pascal's lab because of Pascal's association with Heredia is that VADA is an organization championed by Victor Conte. Basically, both camps should be quiet and fight (although, Pascal is the one who started bitching and deserves criticism for it).
