Here I am respecting Shane Mosely and believing he didn't take performance enhancing drugs and today I read an article that he has admitted to taking them. Now, for that he should have to take an extra loss on his record and pay back his purse for that fight. Boxing in my mind is the best sport ever because it is Mano y Mano. It's about putting yourself through rigorous training and coming up with a good game plan. Fuck that cheating shit. Shane, you lost my respect and so does any other dope fiend boxers.
So I ask, what should be the penalty for fighter who use performance enhancing drugs?
That's a good question. Is his whole legacy tarnished or just pieces? I'm guessing it will not affect his legacy because people tend to have short span memories and just basically don't give a fuck. Look at Toney, his legacy is not tarnished, although the circumstances aren't identical. One fight for sure he was on juice or whatever was the second DLH fight. Yuo could see his body looked more ripped than usual. you really have to wonder how many boxers are on some illegal substance. For some reason or another boxing fans and experts think doping in boxing is rare and only a flaw of other sports but you look at some guys and you have to wonder if it is possible at all to do wha tthey do without extra help. In the spirit of this new confirmation I would just like to add a list of boxers who I think are on something.
Miguel Cotto- The way his body changed from lightweight to muscular Jr Welter is just sketchy. I also remember hearing Collazo's trainer claiming Cotto juiced.
Arthur Abraham- His back muscles don't look normal, same with Cotto.
Roy Jones was. Ruiz fight should be the eye opener.
Manny Pacquiao- I don't care how talented he is, the weight class jumping is just too suspicious.
