I mean yeah he looks a bit bigger than usual, a little leaner too but its not exactly a mind blowing transformation. Certainly doesn't make me think he's definitely taking steroids, even though the drug testing employed in boxing make it fairly easy to get away with.
But that's the misunderstanding. PEDS aren't a miracle drug, they're not going make a 39 year old man faster than ever, hit harder than ever and have more endurance than ever. But they are going to help him build muscle mass to fight above his natural weight class, burn off that excess fat that is hard to shed at that age, give him more energy to train harder than a 39 year old would usually be able to, recover faster from exercise etc etc.

It's not about making a huge transformation it's about slowing down and maybe turning back the clock a few years.
