Mayweather and Guerrero tests clean for PEDS


Recommended Posts

Floyd Mayweather Jr., and his opponent Robert "The Ghost" Guerrero, were tested for performance enhancing drugs on April 3rd and both boxers came up negative for prohibited substances, according to Keith Kizer, the Executive Director for the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Additionally, Kizer indicates that both boxers were well below the state required 6-1 testosterone to epitestosterone ratio (T/E).


 


The tests were conducted by the NSAC. Mayweather (43-0, 26KOs) faces Guerrero (31-1-1, 18KOs) on May 4th at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas. Both fighters are taking part in a random drug testing program being run by USADA.


 


Also tested on April 3rd was undefeated super featherweight contender Mickey Bey (18-0, 9KOs), who also came up clean and had a normal T/E ratio. Bey was recently suspended in the aftermath of his knockout victory on February 2 at The Cosmopolitan. Bey's post-fight drug test showed a T/E ratio of 30-1. He was later fined  $1,000 of his $8,000 purse and suspend for three months (retroactive from the date of his fight).

Xylocane I think, the stuff he injects into his hands you mean? It's basically a numbing agent if my memory serves, but yea it is outlawed everywhere except in Vegas you can use it the week of the fight.

Mofo peep this

 

Product "A" is banned illegal all over the world except in WBF land, "it is legal in WBF land",

 

So they start testing people all over the world for product "A" but since product "A" is legal in WBF land, the people in WBF land are not tested for product "A"

 

 

Also Product "A" does not enhance your performance or make you have an advantage over others.

 

 

Al least he and Guerrero does not have a problem being tested :tup

I honestly am not even sure if that stuff would show up on a piss test, and maybe it isnt banned by VADA or USADA since he tested clean.

Helping to stop pain you get in your hand whilst you fight by taking a universally banned substance isn't performance enhancing....since when was that then G :coffee

last time I heard of PBF taking hand injections was like for Castillo fight , when the hell was that ? he had hand problems after Judah bout , and think it was after Baldoimir he cried his hands and his shoulder and he was gonna quite boxing and his back and his pussy and....

 

but he showed in one of his early 24-7 shows how he was going to a hand specialist and the treatment which he still does had helped along with getting another hand wrapper

 

I don't think theres anything bitch about but the usual sour grapes

That stuff Floyd uses does give him an advantage, if he can punch all night long and not feel a thing while his opponent would feel pain of sore knuckles etc. etc. throughout the fight then of course he has an advantage !

imagine the damage you would be inflicting upon your hand because your not feeling it ? that seems the bigger risk

 

 

I'm agreeing with that, its a bigger risk but he is willing to take it for the advantage, just like any cheat takes the risk of being caught to have that advantage !!

The inference is that Floyd has had brittle hands and uses it as a pain killer and this has been discussed many times and never denied by the Mayweather camp, it doesn't get tested for and it doesn't have to be declared and he will only fight in Vegas which is the only place it is legal to use...you draw the conclusion you want to I guess :coffee

how is it an advantage for mayweather jr if it is legal and his opponent can use it as well?  

It is used to numb his hands because they are damaged, how can that not he an advantage against an opponent if he can up the power into his punches because he doesn't feel the pain??

well Mayweather has admitted to use , but not anything current or in the last 8 years or longer , you ride around attacking him as if he needs shots for every fight

 

You think he shot his hands for Hatton?
