1) Using knuckle pads (Pacman, Trinidad)

2) Plaster of Paris (Margarito, Resto)

3) Diarrhetics/Weight loss supplements (Chavez Jr, Morales)

4) Steroids (Mosley, Berto, Tarver)

5) Stamina Enhancers (Resto, Morales, maybe Pryor)

I do a little boxing, my little brother does a lot of boxing, and I have a lot if friends involved in it as well. To me I think I would say the worst ones in my personal opinion would have to be the knuckle pads/plaster and the stamina enhancers. Personally anyone who hardens their hands is garbage and should be in prison or banned for life. The stamina enhancers is a strong point with me because as your sustaining damage you have greater lung capacity then your opponent therefore your brain receives more oxygen so not only are you performing better because you don't tire physically, you are possibilly better at making decisions mentally because you are not fatigued and your thinking more clearly.

For me steroids in boxing is sort of like how I see it in basketball, yes it MIGHT play a factor but in the end there is so much skill, technique, and craft involved that it could not be a factor at all. Don't get me wrong it is still a sin in boxing but its just not my personal top one

What do you guys think?

i don't believe fighters/trainers should be able to bring their own gauze and tape or pre-wrap. i'd like to see commissions supply these items the day of the fight and have them in their possession all the way until it's time for the fighters to have their hands wrapped. it differs from state to state...but there are rules. coming in with pre-made pads and stuff like that should be banned. doing this stuff can be time consuming. they just need to get there a little earlier to get it done. that would resolve a lot of issues. also....there should be no talking between inspectors/officials unless it concerns the rules. some of these guys buddy up to the inspectors and they get so caught up in conversation...it's easy to slide things by them.

I agree. There should also be a set type of gauze and tape. Dont you have to leave your gloves overnight? Why not everything? Plus, it may cut down the number of times guys gloves get retaped. Some trainers use shitty tape that constantly unravels...fuckin up the flow of the fight.


This would be great if implemented. But I bet the comissions don't do this so that if something fishy does go on they won't have to take responsibility, as in the Resto case when the family sued the commission after.
