Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Maywather both chimed in on the issue regarding Brandon Rios’ failed drug test. Pacquiao, who defeated Rios via unanimous decision, called for more sanctions for fighters in the future while Mayweather was more forgiving.

“In my next fight, I’ll stipulate on the contract that fines should be imposed on the fighter who will test positive (for a banned substance),” Pacquiao said in Filipino as he was interviewed by Dyan Castillejo. “Getting a suspension is not enough. They need to pay fines so that the fighter and trainer will be disciplined.”

Rios tested positive in the post-fight drug test administered by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA). He tested positive for the banned substance methylexanamine, a stimulant that is commonly known as dimenthylamylamine or DMAA, which helps in cutting down weight. Rios has ben suspended by China Professional Boxing Association until April 24, 2014.
