Hey, that was quite a revealing account by Won Shung, SS.
Thanks for that. You can tell Bruce treated Wong like a big brother who gave him sage advice. Bruce was indeed ego driven. It's a shame Brandon is not around. He would be a huge star by now.
Do you remember Dr. Margaret Goodman? The sexy MILF-ish ring doctor?
Dr. Margaret Goodman, now the chief ringside physician for the Nevada State Athletic Commission, told the SI reporters that back in 1994, when Holyfield evinced evidence of a heart defect follwing his loss to Michael Moorer, commission doctors believed the malady to be consistent with HGH use, but since Holyfield denied having used the substance they could not pursue the theory.
4) The "eye test". When I look at Manny - his vascularity, his head size, his muscle type, etc - he looks like he gears up. This is very strange because Freddie has admitted that Manny has a poor diet - mostly white rice. Are we to believe that Manny is the only human on earth who can magically convert a high-carbs diet into lean protein?
These are my observations. Along with the adage; "if it looks too good to be true, then it probably is".
The main defense that I hear from Flips is that Pac is such a good, honest guy. The "good guy" defense has been thoroughly debunked by Shane Mosley, Marion Jones, Andy Pettite, and David Ortiz.
1) The Wild Card gym is a hotbed of steroid activity. This is a well-known fact. If you look at the list of athletes who have trained at the gym, you will see a high number of steroid abusers.
2) Pac has gained weight through multiple weight classes by adding lean muscle, while taking his power up with him. Name all of the "clean" athletes who have done that. Additionally, it is unlikely that is his natural genetics. When you see his family, and his ethnicity, it is unlikely. Name all the great Asian Welterweights.
3) Freddie Roach has specifically trained and been close to proven steroid users. For example, James Toney. Additionally, there is speculation (only spec) about Freddie. There is some evidence that steroids and creatine provides relief for the symptoms of Parkinsons, and some feel that Freddie may have availed himself of that. In all fairness, wouldn't you?
