As I said in another thread I'm not of the mindset that 'cheating is cheating'. Of course if you get caught cheating you have to suffer the consequences but not all crimes are committed equal. Jaywalking is not the same as rape. And taking steroids to improve your endurance is not the same as putting bricks in your glove to pulverize your opponent's face. I'm sorry, not you or Method or anybody else on this board is going to convince me different.
And the Mosley thing was five years ago and by all accounts (so far) is over and done with. Margarito was three days ago. Quit trying to deflect attention away from the relevant matter at hand and quit trying to excuse Margarito just because Mosley got caught doing something completely different five years ago. An eye for an eye, get the fuck out of here with that bullshit.
Great post but this is not even apples to oranges. Lets be realistic here, after Mosley lost to Forrest he was looking frankly like schit. Between "Wack Jack's" "powerboxing" (sighing at that) and this being the time he was "juicing", it's NOT like Mosley was seeing positive results. Lets go back shall we. The Marquez fight was damn near even before it was stopped. No need to even discuss the Wright fights. By then he went back to welterweight where again, he didn't look great against Estrada or Cruz. The point being is Mosley didn't really see any advantages by juicing. I forgot, he barely beat dela Hoya the second time. Had Oscar not had his typical lack of conditioning and fading late, he would have won that fight.
On the other hand Margarito has what are nearly bricks in his hand. A wrapped hand is already solid, with some "plaster" like substance, you're talking literally about a "cast" in hand. Heck, I'm amazed crybaby Cintron hasn't spoken out yet.
