I'm not a big fan of the Olympic testing. I think some of the things done by those testing people are shady, and they are way too intrusive. I say let the NSAC handle it; if they want to blood test, that's fine.
You can't trust Olympic style drug testing? You're saying they're too shady, yet it's impossible for the NSAC to be just as shady? As long as Shane has fought in Nevada, he's never been caught until he confessed to blood doping. My opinion on the matter is this: Since Mayweather created the whole blood-testing fiasco, everyone and their mama wants to ridicule him, call him a coward. Yet, if Pacquiao came up with the idea of random blood-testing before his fights. Most would just add an extra feather in his cap, calling him an enforcer of Boxing. It would be the greatest thing since sliced bread.
To answer the question. I will always have faith in the villain. When Antonio Tarver stood up at a Roy Jones press conference and started running his mouth, I was immediately interested and thought who the guy was and what's his problem. Whether it was staged or not, fact of the matter is, Roy Jones was caught between being the well-mannered Boxer that people want to see lose or the well-mannered Boxer that is going to shut this big-mouth up. I was for the former more than the latter. We all know where Floyd Mayweather fits into this good guy-bad guy equation so no need to go there.
