    Malignaggi Strikes Blow On Twitter Vs. PED Usage

    He was living in LA for awhile, but you could take the Mouthy One—and you know I say that with fondness in my heart—Paul Malignaggi, plunk him down in Podunk, make him live their a decade, and he’d still shoot from the lip, still say what is in his heart and at the top of hid mind, even if it is guaranteed to ruffle feathers galore.
    He was at it on Monday night, was Malignaggi, on his favorite platform to spread his message, in 140 characters on less, Twitter.
    “I don’t give respect to guys who hide and duck from random drug testing while accomplishing things that seem pretty amazing,” he Tweeted. “Paq should have been the first to volunteer for those random tests when he was destroying people while constantly jumping weight classes,” he continued. “Instead, he ducked and dodged them so no, until I see a destructive Paq performance for a fight in which he submitted to random testing I will not give that credit.”
    Shots, as they say, fired.
    The 33-year-old, coming off a loss to Shawn Porter in his last outing, on April 19, showed fighting instinct then, and to his legions of Twitter fans, and detractors, as well. “This sport needs to be taken in the right direction and a guy with (Pacquiao's) popularity should have been the first one to volunteer to set the example and volunteer for it. Instead he dodged it during a time when he shouldn’t. Which leads anyone to wonder if that was the whole reason for his skyrocketing 2 fame in the first place.”
    Well, I’d call that a stiff, no, beyond stiff combo…with a left hook finisher to boot…
    “So don’t ask me stupid questions or make stupid comment when I’m a fighter that can look in the mirror and know I did this (stuff) clean," Malignaggi Tweeted. "In an era when it’s become a problem because people wanna be fan boys instead of opening their (expletive) eyes to the problem.”
    Someone’s mad as hell, and not inclined to take it anymore…Lot of that going around the sport these days, lol. Duva, Woods, Malignaggi, who’s the next loose cannon to saw off the barrel and fire?
    He closed with,“Love all my fans but fans gotta open their eyes and be realistic too.”
    Amen to that, I say. Maybe you don’t, maybe you’re one of these folks who just turns that blind eye, assumes that they’re all juicing, so who the heck cares. Well, I say, what about the guys who want to do it right, that were brought up the right way, to compete furiously but with maximum decency and honor, and without looking for that edge, the way so many athletes, and businessmen, do these days. The ones who don’t search out the exploitable loophole, the ones who aren’t Ayn Rand adherents, for whom greed is God and good, the ones who aren’t popping the pills and buying vials of stuff they tell themselves the other guy is on too, so I’m just evening the playing field, they deserve our applause and support. And they deserve anyone who gives a damn to keep on giving a damn, and not caving in, and stopping lobbying for strict and random and consistent testing.
    Now, I don’t like to generate smoke and fan the flames of the rumor bonfires without proof that people were playing with matches, because I wouldn’t want that to be done to me were I innocent. It’s a dangerous game, making insinuations, because if one innocent gets incorrectly tarnished, that is one decent person irrevocably stained without cause. But this I will say…Paulie’s rant is a nice kickstart, maybe, to remind some of us that sometimes we get a bit blasé about the issue. That we need to keep on pushing the sanctioning bodies, and the commissions, and the promoters, and the athletes, to do the most right thing. That is pushing for strict and consistent testing, so we can get as close as possible to knowing for sure that indeed, the playing field is level, and all the athletes we so appreciate watching perform, are doing it cleanly, without ingesting powerful chemical aids which will inevitably play hell with their bodies in coming decades. And chemicals which aid them in meting out powerful punches, more powerful than would be possible without illegal chemical boosts, which result in more brain trauma on a fighter who isn’t being abetted by the same sort of stimulus. Or we can continue our present course, which is to pay occasional lip service to the issue, and throw the odd attaboy to the handful of athletes—and you know em when you look at them with their shirts off, because they have bodies that look NORMAL—who are demanding random and year-round testing.

    Paulie is borderline bipolar IMHO. He just cannot accept the reality of the actuality. And he is jealous. And will go on a tirade against anybody who doesn't see things his way. It is skills, not steroids that pay the bills.

    Steroids don't win fights. Talent and skills get the job done. Roids and PEDs are a convenient excuse for the not-of-the-best-of-the best. Paulie is and always has been an aight fighter. He has dreamed of being a superstar, but he hasn't far. Someone ought to tell him that dreams don't always come true.

    Life is a BYYYYYTCCCCCCCCCH! And then you die. So don't cry. At least you got a piece of the pie. Da Manny has never been on roids.

    The phenomenonal speed and power of the Filipino is legendary. We are he only people that a weapon -- "the 45' pistol -- was made and design for to specifically kill us. "Put 'em down," said the U.S. War Department about making a weapon for attempted genocide of a people.

    Tell Pauline -- I mean Paulie -- to bring his arse to the P-Islands, and see the unbelievable. He would accused my seven-year-old son and 114-year-old tio of being on that syet. Holla!

    I understand where Paulie is coming from. He has worked incredibly hard to accomplish all he did in one of the world's toughest sports--a sport he which he knows is not always played by the rules.

    But, not everybody is breaking those rules, or even bending them. Some fighters can look in the mirror--just the way Paulie does--and see a man, free of PED's. I believe two of those men are Manny Pacquiao and Shawn Porter.

    Whether Paulie ever will believe the same thing isw a whole other story!

    Wow Paulie is a tough guy to please!

    I agree with what he says though. PED's are despicable and everyone involved in the sport, from authorities to fans to fighter, promoters and manager, should make a united effort to bring about their ejection from the boxing world.

    It ain't gonna ever happen. The game will always be a red-light district sport. And fools and human toilet stools and tools will never let dat syet go. The myths of it is too powerful.

    The Big Brother governments of the world have to step in with a New World Order. Even the "Tales of the Crypt" "Grorm" is even making a comeback by way of Mexico, Argentina, Columbia, Peru and Panama. Holla at the fallen Angel "(got the) Memo" Heredia. Holla!

    Pauline is way too salty about the loss and cant let it go, im not surprised by his little rants though. I just recently started appreciating Paulina because I've always disliked his little loud mouth arse at the beginning of his career, then he grew up and matured a little, but his comments/ insinuations about Manny and Porter made me a little disappointed in him, i thought he would have a little more class thats all. Anyways, everyone is entitled to their own opinion, and i guess that was his, but who am i to speak, i sound salty myself right now, oh well.

    Ya I'm sure Pac stays awake at night because "Paulie" isn't giving him credit for wins. What's he supposed to do Paulie? Jump in a dam time machine and take the tests because you think he did to well?

    Unfortunately, its a problem in the sport.

    Also unfortunately, there is not enough comprehensive testing done in the sport. We all know that and the reasons are varied.

    But I do believe there are a lot of clean fighters out there. So its my belief that unless strong hard evidenced is produced, innocent until proven guilty is the correct way to look at things. Meaning that I will not believe anyone is using or accuse anyone of being on any type of PEDs unless hard evidenced is brought forth.

    On another note on this topic, I believe for those who are caught that substantial penalties need to be issued. For example, I believe that commissions should levy a substantial fine (say at least 50% of the purse for the fight that they were popped) and suspension (say 18 months at a minimum). Only with substantial penalties will fighters think twice about using and this is one broad policy that can be instituted immediately.

    I can ride with what you are saying. But it is the nature of humans -- not in the know -- to believe in and seek something that will make their game grow. Or they just want to feel like they are in utopia.

    These hypocrites in this game will never get rid of that syet. Nowadays boxing is also about looks for all comers to the fights. And then after the fights, they get their freak on from being turned on by sweaty, almost-naked, muscle-bulging pugs from the freak side. Some of the audience be getting their freak on right at the fights.

    And don't play like I'm the only one who has seen that. That is why I stay away from the nosebleed seats. Doing it happens there the most. A couple of freaks get turned on, and will be going at it. Hehe! The "theatre of the unexpected" is not just about pugs. And like I say, "Optical illusions are everywhere. I'm still shocked that tabloid television hasn't reported this yet.

    The powers that be aren't letting the steriod cheats go away -- no how, no way. They brings in the turned-on dames-damsels-dolls-and-the-d¡¢ks audience of freaks. And too much latent dough is being made from this audience by the arenas, casinos and motels, hotels and transportation companies.

    Let's not play dumb and blind. Does it alway have to be me revealing and/or reminding ev'y and dey momma of the many haps amid boksing?

    Since the late 1980$, roid-and-PEDs usage has intensified because it brings out the freaks at night, thus more moolah to be made by the big wigs. And they ain't taking a pay cut. Holla!
