You ever hear of the term "roid rage". Well that comes from the amount of testoterone to much of it and you basically become a adrenaline beast. For Manny to go up in weight and progressively get stronger hit harder, take bigger shots..it just seems very suspect to me. A good example is Duran at LW he was a killer at MW he was very good but clearly not the same. So Pac fights most of his carreer below 140, then comes up and whoops some of the top WW's out there..and in the fashion that he did it..something just aint right.
