Default Should Peterson, Berto and Tarver Be Banned for 4 years Like Larry Olubamiwo?

Larry Olubamiwo, a UK fighter who tested positive for banned substances, has recently been banned for 4 years in total.

Should American fighters Lamont Peterson, Andre Berto and now Antonio Tarver also be banned for 4 years as a penalty for testing positive for banned substances?

I don't care much for Peterson or Berto but I'm still shocked about Tarver being tested positive, he's one of my favorite fighters. But nevertheless, I have to reluctantly include him in this equation.

4 years for the first time is too much. Margarito had f**king bricks in his gloves and was only banned for a year.

I think 12 - 24 months is a perfect ban. Long enough to lose money and pick up ring rust but hopefully not too long to damage a talented individual.

No one deserves to lose their life to a drugs cheat, but equally the drugs cheat doesnt deserve to lose their livelihood and career.

1 year ban if it is found to be accidental and with small amounts in their system (like Berto).

Lifetime ban for everyone else.

I don't think anyone should be banned until it is well proven that they were purposely cheating. Then ban them for 6 months with a heavy fine and a warning that if they are caught again they are banned for life.Banning a fighter for 4 years on the first offense is way to harsh.It ruins their career and takes away their means of making a living. Berto was found to have such a tiny amount of ped. in his system that it could not possibly help him in any way. It seems obvious to me that Berto took a legal supplement that was contaminated with just enough ped. to show up on the test. I think Berto did not try to cheat and should not be fined or banned at all. I am not a Berto fan but he should be treated fairly. On the others I think they should wait until all the facts are in.

I'm not sure how long they should be banned from the sport, but there's no question that they need to be banned. They're cheats, they got caught, and they deserve to be punished severely.
