A person with knowledge of the situation has informed TheSweetScience.com that PED testing for the October 12th battle between Timothy Bradley and Juan Manuel Marquez has begun.

“Marquez was tested yesterday,” said the source. “They collected both blood and urine samples.”

As previously reported by BoxingScene.com, the PED testing for the bout will be handled by the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC).

"Everything is fine. The Nevada Commission is running the tests. They are taking extensive tests. They started it [on Tuesday]. Everything is in order. The tests by the Nevada Commission will be just as or even more extensive than USADA or VADA. You have to understand that these are the same tests. These organizations may evaluate them differently but the tests are the tests. If you were trained, you could put a needle in somebody and take the blood," Arum told BoxingScene.com.

The source also confirmed the NSAC has indeed brought in World Anti-Doping Authority (WADA) accredited experts to help administer the program.

“They have accredited WADA personnel collecting and analyzing the samples which will be sent to the The Sports Medicine Research and Testing Laboratory (SMRTL) in Salt Lake City, Utah, a WADA accredited lab since 2006.”

Nevada Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer confirmed to TSS who is attending to what regarding the testing. "We are utilizing The Sports Medicine Research and Testing Laboratory (SMRTL) in Salt Lake City, Utah, to collect the samples and perform the testing," Kizer said. "The administration is solely being done by the Commission."

The bout was previously considered in jeopardy due to preferences in both camps for different anti-doping programs. Marquez reportedly preferred using the United States Anti-Doping (USADA) program, which also administers tests for Olympic athletes, while Bradley preferred using the Voluntary Anti-Doping Program (VADA) headed by ringside expert Dr. Margaret Goodman.

According to a press release by VADA, Bradley has additionally re-enrolled in their program through October 12, 2013.

Meanwhile, the Marquez camp, who had insisted on the USADA program, could not enroll their fighter into a similar program with their preferred program provider based on USADA’s rules and regulations.

 “USADA only conducts an anti-doping program when both fighters agree to the rules and requirements to be included in the USADA program,” said Annie Skinner, USADA Media Relations Manager. “USADA will not conduct a testing program while another organization (other than the boxing commission who collects a fight night sample) is testing one or both fighters, as the other organization may not hold the fighters to the same standards as USADA, the athletes may be confused by differing protocols, and because the USADA program is required to remain consistent with the WADA Code and International Standards.”

I wouldn't trust the Nevada State Athlete Commission as far as I could see it. The group of ____ ___ ____ and ___ __ were the same group of clowns that allow bad judging to give Bambi Bradley a gift decision over Da Manny.

It is all about the MOOLA! NSAC and WADA are going to do a half-arse job and let Marquez turn into Hulkquez again. I just hope that Big Foot/The Cali Cranium Crusher's big-arse dome is ready. But I predict that this shotfest will be BORING!

Hulkquez is gonna to try one shot Buffet Bradley and put him to sleep. But the Bambi-ized Bradley is going to be moving those size 13 barking dogs of his like locomotors and smoke is going to be coming from of those bytches. Hehehe!

I predict that Hulkquez win a controversial decision, or the crooked-arse judges will call the shotfest a draw for the men of straw. Holla!

Radam G says:

BTW the Nevada State Athlete Commission let Dr. Maggie Goodman GO after she found Money May's syet over the rules of 4-to-1. NSAC then change the rules to 6-to-1 for roids and PEDs. Holla!

amayseng says:

I agree with all u wrote RG.

Do u have an article or site showing or documenting Floyd testing over 4:1?

Radam G says:

Just holla at J-Lamp second show of "The Fight Game." Or google Money May shows higher than 4-to-1, so NSAC changes the rules to 6-to-1 and fires Dr. Margaret Goodman. Holla!

amayseng says:

I read Montoyo was hot on the trail and got black balled by gbp lawyers.

Radam G says:

True DAT! You can refresh your memory of that by reading the Nov. 19, 2012 The Sweet Science's article: "Boxing vs. PEDs." Holla!

Joke:

Q: What did Juan Manuel Marquez say when he was told it was time for urine testing?

A: "Oh, I've already done that -- and it's warm and kind of salty, but really not that bad!"

Lol not bad

Carmine Cas says:

Regardless if he's juicing or not, Marquez isn't wise to keep that mass

tlig says:

If?

Seriously, if?

Radam G says:

Tlig, some people just cannot handle the truth. "If" is their way of denying reality and actuality. Near 40-year-old boxers routinely become Incrediblely Hulkized in four months after never being ecromorph their all life. Wow! Puberty TWICE in life. And they are not on the "Fallen" Angel Heredia's juice, cream and clear. YUP, RIGHT! Hulkquez was hiding in plain sight if using dat syet on HBO's 24/7. Holla!

brownsugar says:

Until there's proof I'll consider both fighters clean if they pass the test.. since I can't personally get a drop of either fighters blood to verify... I'm giving Bradley the nod since he's really a junior middleweight hiding in a junior welters body.... if Bradley uses his feet...(a little side to side)..and keeps it technical, it should be easy work...but nobody trades with Marquez and wins.

Carmine Cas says:

There is no official proof that Marquez has been juicing just speculation. Similar speculation that Pacquiao was facing not too long ago when he had issues with taking a needle for 50 + million, and knocking out limited dehydrated opponents at WW. Now pacquiao fans praise him for doing olympic style testing with Rios, quick to forget his refusal to do it a few years ago was one of the primary obstacles that the super fight didn't happen while it was still hot. It's actually "ectomorph" and no individual is in one category, Marquez and pacquiao both went up in weight at similar weights. Haters just like to stay in denial and try to paint Marquez as dirty as a means to distract people from his previous win

Radam G says:

There is no "official proof" of life after day neither -- "just speculation." There is never "official proof" and "just speculation" until reality and actuality KICKS @SSes, as it always DOES. Remember A-Rod, Lance Armstrong, Marion Jones and the late FloJo Griffith. AND no "pacquiao fans praise him for doing olympic style testing with Rios." For the simple reason that THERE IS NO OLYMPIC STYLE TESTING being done. This is not an Olympic-style bout. It is call PROFESSIONAL-style bout! So there is professional-style testing done by profession VADA, not the Olympic Organization of WADA or the corrupted, cheating-@ss I-see-no-evil-for-a-donation USADA that never catches anybody. Other people snitch them out like the "Fallen" Angel Heredia.

In the words of Uncle Roger May: "Most people don't know syet 'bout boksin!'" Or even what type of roids and PEDs testing is being taking on honest professional fighters. Just look how many of Money May's fighters have come up dirty, including Money May. Matter of fact, one of Money May's fighters -- Mickey Bey -- was the dirtest fighter in the history of just plain ole corrupted NSAC testing. Holla!

Carmine Cas says:

Yes, and Money May is a hypocrite for attempting to clean up the game and being dirty himself in addition to his teammates. Radam everyone knows this isn't an Olympic style bout but the fact that he refused to take random blood testing which was labeled "Olympic style drug testing" was a snag in the negotiations and now pactards are all high on mighty. Hence the "style", which indicates type or protocol of the drug testing, not the bout itself. I guess you have issues comprehending certain subjects which you're in denial with. And yes I remember those athletes, but they admitted to it/and or had legitimate proof against them. On the other hand there's Ray Lewis who was accused of using a banned substance but it was all speculation, and he never got caught . Sh*t people accused me of juicing when I was in high school, even my doctor asked me, I wasn't but it comes with territory. Is Marquez juicing? No, there's no proof. Would I be surprised if he were juicing? No, but I wouldn't be surprised if Manny is juicing either. You're uncle bobby is taking care of the drug testing don't you worry dam dam. Holla at this article where it is clearly denoted it as "Olympic Style Drug Testing" http://sports.yahoo.com/blogs/boxing/manny-pacquiao-signs-dotted-line-drug-tests-brandon-142229911.html

"Most people don't know sh*t about boxing!" Or even what popular mainstream movie there son is in. Hahahahahaha

Radam G says:

Anybody -- but the fakers, posers and cyberspace syettalkers -- who has been around boxing knows a strawberry weight can KAYO a heavyweight. All you have to do is hit da bytch with the right shot on the right spot. The fakers and posers don't believe syet, because they only know da syet of dat make believe up in their craniums.

Sizes and steroids don't help you blast out JACK or JILL or climb up a HILL! PUNCHERS are BORN! And the right shot in the right spot will kayo an elephant.

Anybody ever in da legal mayhem game KNOWS DIZ! And no syet-talkin' cyberbeefer can change the reality of the reality or the actuality of the actuality.

In the words of Money May: "Hard work and DEDICATION!" NOT cyberspace "pacquiao" trolling and one after another hallucination. Holla!

Carmine Cas says:

I completely agree, I know you got some good ish in Cali, help yourself or I can teach you the powers of Grandmaster Choa Kok Sui

Radam G says:

You are the latest bozo, and don't a have a clown's clue. And because you say stupid syet, it doesn't stick. The readers here are highly educated and super-quick intelligent. Your knocks on me with kindergarten bully jive is nit working. Trying to put down my intelligence and education reveals what you are. And nobody needs to post it. Your kind come a penny a dozen.

It is just a matter of time before you have your mental episode and split like an atom. Anonys outta da Big Apple always worm away. Hehehe! Stay on da meds or get on them. Hehehe! All nut jobs go to ____________ ____! Hehehe! Holla,

Radam G says:

You are shaking like a leaf. With somebody else, you ought to cyberbeef. I'm smarter than you are on my worse day. GET out da WAY. You don't come light years of my pay. And only to you, your posing is okay. CHILLAX! Get some Ex lax. Let da s**t out. For joy, you will shout. Holla!

Carmine Cas says:

You must have money to pay someone to continuously ghost write your comments for you in poetic form. It must be frustrating that this "bozo" keeps proving you wrong and kicking your cyber bullying arse all over this forum. Or the fact that I speak of teachings from your culture that you don't have an iota of knowledge of. You attempt to influence the forum with your rhetoric, yes you make valid points but you still spit a lot bull spit. The readers are intelligent, and have you seen them back you up? You always refer to them looking for help, it's okay dam dam it's just you and I in the ring. Me challenging you just shows that I am intelligent enough to formulate an alternate opinion and not agree with all the sh*t you post. I only belittle your intelligence because you belittle mine and shoot erroneous facts. You spit more propaganda than Fox news and when someone is against you, they are crazy. But you're the one who needs the meds.

And you're last two posts change the subject from Marquez and drug testing, to steroids and punching power once I posted that article and proved you wrong, yet again. But it's okay do what you do best, switch it up and runaway. You must be blood doping, the PED cyber bully right here. But eventually that will catch up and break you down. Relax, don't aggravate, meditate.

stormcentre says:

Hmmm.

I am a little concerned whenever Marquez (since his last fight with Pacquiao) and particularly Bradley (or Arum), talk PED testing up as if they're trying to do the right thing; whilst at the same time veering away from VADA

Why are you a "Little concerned," Strom? VADA would catch his arse, and he'd not be able to pay Doc Goodman to develop blindness. Only the Pac-haters and fools are blinded to reality and actuality. Marquez aims to become Hulkquez twice. And to him that is nice. Gefting a win, an eye-candy body will help him ice. Holla!

stormcentre says:

Yes RG .. . I guess when you explain it like that - there's nothing to worry about.

I see though, on BS.com that Bradley already has concerns; so I am not (entirely) alone.

Yep. TB is quoted saying jmm is not testing with the contractural agreement and TB is quoted in saying to the fans and media for us to draw our own conclusions.
Also a pic of jmm has surface already. He's jacked already with his new 8 pack.
God bless him for trying

stormcentre says:

Yes, it will probably be hard for JMM to go clean for this one, if, he was not clean for the Pacquiao fight.

If you have the URL for the picture of JMM; please post it.

It's on boxing scene

Radam G says:

A-Seng, holla at HustleBoss.com. In a video interview, "Buffet" Bradley said that "the writing is on the wall" that "Marquez" is on dat syet. This is why he refuses to be tested VADA.

Buffet Bradley says that he is going to kick Marquez's arse regardless. Hulkquez got dat syet all up in him. Everybodee and dey momma in da know KNOW! Holla!

Radam G says:

WHADUP wif DIZ! The Sin City crooks are doing their own testing and don't want Doc Maggie Goodman and VADA anywhere NEAR the fighter Marquez, who's aiming to once again become the great-and-powerful, going-through-puberty-twice-in-one-lifetime HULKQUEZ, da-one-punch super Aztec warrior killa, chilla, thrilla and with a new body of a gorilla!

WTF! The "Fallen" Angel Heredia is awesome conditioning roids-and-PEDs peddler -- I mean trainer. YUP, RIGHT! THAT'S A NO BRAINER!

Wow! A-Rod is in the wrong sport. If he could box a couple of bits, he'd be da syets. Hehehe! Boxing is so fudgin' seedy and all the pundits are double greedy. Marquez -- on his way back to the future of Hulkquez --would be busted in any other sport and a laughingstock. But in the boxing, he is the shinnest, candy-eyed cruise liner on the dock. The common sense of any thinking person with an iota of a brain, these boxing corrupted powers that be in boxing are getting on their mock. THAT'S RIGHT! Mocking those gonna-pay-for-this-shotfest's fanfaronades, boxing fanatics and _____ ______ nuts.

Wow! Whatever turns you on. I ain't hating! Dumb@$$ness is free. Believing in fanasty is too. Do what you DO! Sucka and "muthapuckas" -- in the words of Tio Mamoy -- are born by the dozen ev'y minute. Holla!

brownsugar says:

O Ye of little faith.
Mere words alone won't convict.
They don't burn witches anymore in Salem on verbal accusation.
And the eyeball test is the least reliable metric to prove PED use..
Cheating between Marquez and Bradley is currently the least of my concerns..(I hope Marquez can pull it off).
When someone has one molecule of PED's to post as evidence obtained from the person of JMM, please let us all know.
Thanks. (Sponsored by the "Other" point of view).

Radam G says:

O'Ye of high faith.
Mere words alone always bring the truth on.
And then the doubters change their tone.
But they will say let by gones be long gone.
Burning witches on verbal accusation lives on.
It is just in the form "stand your ground" on sweet drink and skittles-carrying teens or playing their music too loud.
Over Hulkquez is a got-cha cloud.
And human nature is going to rat him out.
Mother nature has no doubt.
Marquez used and is using dat syet to have those muscles spout.
And Hulkquez will turned out to be the "Fallen" Angel Heredia's stupidest lout. Holla!

Carmine Cas says:

Does Uncle Bobby have any say in the drug testing protocol? He seems adamant about letting NSAC do the "extensive testing"
