And I bet you thought this was some new information.

Nope...just an old story from nearly 14 years ago....but it will be interesting to see if this plays a role in the defamation lawsuit that Pacquiao has going on right now. Check it out:

Bowe accuses Golota of steroid use, wants test N.J. official says testing would happen only if both fighters' camps agree
October 18, 1996|By Alan Goldstein,SUN STAFF

Former heavyweight champion Riddick Bowe, preparing for a rematch with Andrew Golota, has accused his rival of using steroids in their first riot-marred fight at Madison Square Garden last July.

"I definitely think he was on steroids," said Bowe, who was being soundly beaten before being declared the winner by disqualification in the seventh round when Golota was charged with a fourth low blow. The boxers will meet in Atlantic City, N.J., on Dec. 14.

"Look at Golota's record prior to fighting me," he said. "Mediocre guys were hurting him. When he fought me, he had a lot of energy and my punches didn't bother him.

"If he is not tested for steroids this time, there will be no fight. Mano a mano, I know he can't beat me. If he's clean, and he gives the same kind of performance, I'll tip my hat to him. Otherwise, we'll know his performance in July was enhanced by steroids."

Dr. Billy Lathan, chief medical officer for the New York State Athletic Commission, said yesterday that his commission does not test for steroids, adding, "I do not believe any state commission tests for it.

"Personally, I don't think it's that important relative to all the other tests we do for drugs, AIDS, hepatitis, and the condition of a fighter's heart and eyes," said Lathan. "I think, in the long run, steroids would prove more harmful."

Larry Hazzard, chairman of the New Jersey Athletic Commission, said, "If both camps -- Bowe and Golota -- mutually agree to being tested for steroids, we would oblige them.

"Currently, we do not require steroid testing, but there is latitude in our rules and regulations to ensure the integrity of an event."

Actually...I'm terrible...I shouldn't have started a new thread for this.

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

But it's just so funny to see how Mayweather is getting blasted for doing the same thing that others have done in the past. I mean, think about it...does anybody remember Riddick Bowe's request causing such a stir in boxing and mainstream media? It's hilarious...fvcking Bowe is like, "HELL YEAH I THINK THAT MUDDASUCKA IS USING STEROIDS. I WANT HIS ASS TESTED ASAP!"

(IMG:style_emoticons/default/laugh.gif)

That's fvcking great.

Upon further review, Andrew Golota should sue his ass. Who knows how much those accusations cost him in future earnings throughout his career. I mean seriously...Golota was beloved by his Polish fans, and then those accusations come out and bam...career down the toilet. Those accusations alone could have cost him MILLIONS when he fought Adamek. LOL.

Golota had a bunch of back pimples too...Bowe was probably right on that one.

Yes he did. Also I remember that after he was inactive for a while until he fought Byrd and his body looked more muscular and ripped.

Im so not with you on this hype. This fight falling apart was more floyd than manny although both could have bent more if they really wanted the fight. although to say manny diddnt bend quite a bit would be inacurate.

I know you your position is that for 40 mil take the test. but that argument is on both sides and manny is in a diff position than us financially. Hell Id fight any of these guys with a blood test on 20 minutes notice for 50,000 with one hand
