Roy Jones: Very Possible Tarver Was on Steroids With Me

Former four division champion Roy Jones Jr. is wondering whether or not Antonio Tarver was on steroids in their 2004 rematch - where Tarver, on a single punch, stopped Jones in the second round and Roy was never the same boxer after that contest. On June 22, BoxingScene.com's Ryan Maquinana broke the news that Tarver tested positive for drostanolone, an anabolic steroid. The failed test took place prior to Tarver's twelve round draw against Lateef Kayode on June 2 in California. Jones says it is "very possible" that Tarver was using steroids for their fight.

Since the positive test result, several of Tarver's past opponents like Danny Green and Clinton Woods have been come in the press with similar questions. 

"You can call it a lucky punch but he did have to throw it. You can call it lucky or unlucky. The only problem I got is now that he's tested positive for steroids, it's very possible that he was on steroids when it happened. Other than that, it was a good punch, a clean punch - so I just can't go off that it was a lucky punch. But if he was on steroids, then it makes me understand on how he was able to stand there and why he was so confident to throw it, because he knows he's on steroids. Other than that, I don't complain about a lucky punch because lucky punches happen," Jones said.

The next thing we are going to hear is that Sylvester Stallone is going to say that Tarver was on steroids when he filmed Rocky Balboa.

RJ has a point. Sounds like Tarver vs Jones IV for the IBO Cruiserweight Belt should be considered.
