Lamont Peterson gets caught using steroids
Lamont gets caught with steroids because of random drug testing. Evidence shows that Lamont had an abnormally high testosterone level in his December 10th fight against Khan. Lamont most likely thought that the enhanced testosterone level was back to normal. He was wrong. It takes a longer period for the testosterone level to turn back to their normal level.
Lamont doesn't get suspended, he can keep his purse money and the IBF lets him keep the belt.
Lamont Peterson fights Kendall Holt
The broadcasters portray him as the victim of the system and he gets a pass for using steroids in the Khan fight.
What is it about Lamont that either gets him the benefit of the doubt or a pass in his wrongdoings?
Is it because of his tough upbringing story?
Because he is an American? It's not uncommon for American athletes to use performance enhancement drugs. See for example boxers like Tony, Holyfield, Vargas and Mosley. Lance Armstrong being one of the biggest cheaters in the history of any sport.
Or is it simply because of his puppy wuppy eyes?
