PEDs are a big reality in all pro sports, especially at the highest level, but it is pretty ridiculous to suggest that extra power from steroids is what made Marquez's shots powerful enough to put Pac on the canvas. Unless it is being argued that Marquez was on some new designer PED that made his punches much more accurate and caused his gloves to seek the proper places on Pac's head with which to collide, like heat seeking missiles.
In other words, if he is on PEDs it is par for the course; PEDs do help with things like conditioning and the ability to train, and of course strength, but would make no difference with respect to the knockdown/knockout punches themselves, which were very well timed, loaded up, perfectly placed punches, the second of which Pac ran headfirst into, greatly increasing the impact.
