Crazier part is that the PED game has evolved even more than when this interview was recorded which was not that long ago.
Things like super masking agents, blood boiling, centrifuging, trt, microdosing are all the new rage. Some of this stuff is so advanced that you can only get positive tests through muscle biopsy. The PED game is still 10 years ahead of the testing even though the testing is very good.
Mayweather was identified by HBO commentators Jim Lampley and former heavyweight champion George Foreman as having a history of injecting pain killers such as Xylocaine into his hands, according to a column on Inside Boxing.
In December 2007, in an article by Steve Bunce, Mayweather stated:
I'm a professional fighter and like most professional fighters I have had difficulties with my hands in the past . . . . I have invested in the latest technology to help me prepare for fights and so far all is well. But, my body is most definitely sending me signals that time is running out.
I've had boxing gloves on since before I could walk and been in gyms all of my life. The end is getting closer for Floyd Mayweather .
I dont know what's more disturbing. The fact peds have been ignored all these years . Or Conte rocking that stash and tank top in the gym.
Why would anything be disturbing? There are legal roids and PEDs. And illegal ones. Half of pugs used the illegal ones. Forty-five percent use the legal approved ones. Four percent use natural foods and waters. One percent is all up on mix-mix syet.
This is a crazy game, y'all. And like TGD says, these guys are way ahead of the testing. Conte says he's apprehensive to speak of it because it gives other dopers/peddlers knowledge to continue coming up with ways to circumvent the testing.
I will say this: Oscar De La Hoya is damn good guy for forgiving Mosley for basically drugging himself to victory in their rematch.
He won the last four rounds in his 7-5 victory, edging it by having the extra conditioning his EPO shots and steroids gave him.
I'm not sure I would've just forgiven him for that.
