Yeah, it's really sad, man. I get the feeling even if he De La Hoya money he'd still wanna fight. Some people have that itch. Sucks to see this though. What's crazy is that he's still, kinda, sorta competitive. When he isn't getting knocked the f*ck out. SMH. I hope this ends ok.
I don't know, is it money problems? Don't know...Don't like it. I fear for his health. Just be a commentator that's a great gig for him. Even though I heard that he doesn't like going pre fight meetings? Meh.
It's funny I've never interviewed Roy but I've had numerous just regular conversations with him. He's a good guy. And he is very, very intense. Not the type you want to suggest that to . Why does he keep doing this? As for JT...I'll wait till the full details come out.
I think we already knew, with or without these recent tests, that PED use is pretty regular. Margaret Goodman was saying this ages ago. There are some fighters who genuinely don't know or don't use. Hey, Manny Pacquiao doesn't even know what a steroid is . So Smith's statement isn't shocking but does seem a little too naive.
I don't know who's saying it...I hate "sources", I understand the reason not to out them. But, I hate them. But, I think it's OK to say if the source is coming from VADA or Berto camp or Golden Boy or whatever. I guess that's too much to ask for some reporters
Why do you think these fighters are asking for it and popping dirty? Are they trying to be slick? or is not knowing that they're taking it? I was talking with Ishe Smith and he seemed ignorant to the idea of PED use in the sport. He didn't how severe it was in the sport, what T/E ratio meant, cycling on and off.
I don't know if he was just acting like he didn't know. Or if he really didn't know and that kind of troubles me.
Who is saying its traces though? Is it Berto's camp or VADA? And I can't see Conte recommending that kind of steroid either although I could picture a scenario where it's a PED Berto has been using for a long time or for that bicep injury.
I don't understand if the level was so small like parts per trillion how could it flag the test? Like you said was it something that he was cycling off of? It seems, like it's just an excuse for taking such supplement. But, then again why take such an ancient drug in the first place? Just strange all around.
