    The camp of Filipino ring icon Manny Pacquiao is not expecting Floyd Mayweather Jr. to be disqualified from fighting Andre Berto on Sunday amid reports that the unbeaten American took an illegal intravenous injection before he fought Pacman in May this year.

    Pacquiao’s business manager Eric Pineda said that reversing the outcome of the May 3 match, where Mayweather prevailed over Pacquiao via unanimous decision is not possible even if the World Anti-Doping Agency has proven that the American used Performance Enhancing Drug (PED).

    Pineda said that the worst Mayweather could experience is to be fined and sanctioned by the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

    “It won’t happen and that’s not possible I guess. Maybe a rematch will be proposed but reversing the outcome is doubtful,” Pineda told The Manila Times on Thursday in a phone interview. “It is up to the Top Rank Promotion and Bob Arum to deal with the issue.”

    “We will leave everything to Top Rank and to Bob Arum,” he added.
