stop being a ****ing idiot, its a joint! Well it wasn't JUST a joint but thats the story. Stop acting like weed is a big deal because if you do you're exposing yourself as a closed mind idiot. Ain't nothing wrong with smoking weed. But i also DO agree that it could benefit him. For 1 alot of boxers suffer from nerves the weeks up to and right before a fight. I heard storys of Hatton crying a few days before the first time he fought in the US, so his coach said to him don't worry if he was any good you wouldn't be fight him. Weed is the only thing i use to settle a stomach, it is the best and when you hear of fighters like B-Hop suffering from stomach cramps and having the ****s before fights it would make sense to smoke it before what ever meal you have that day.
Other than that it is a distraction from training and I truly believe as a heavy smoker myself that it's the reason for the weird training hours. I have hit the bag at half one in the morning after smoking some weed and catching the punching buzz, now when i smoke out of habit i ALWAYS shadowbox atleast.
BTW **** Chavez
