Landing that shot had everything to do with Marquez's boxing ability and incredible physiological reaction times to certain punches and movements, but the effect of the punch would definitely be increased by anabolic steroids. Just like how Bonds started hitting the ball further on average during his home runs in his late 30s, it gives you unnatural strength and if you're training sports-specific for explosiveness and power, you're going to see big increases there also. That said, I'd guess Pacquiao has been supplied and used performance enhancers in the past courtesy of Alex Ariza. These trainers have easy access to PEDs. Hell, I could send anybody on here a PM with emails/product-lists of a number of suppliers. They're not that hard to find. And I trust Conte's word that it's rampant over naive fans who don't think it is.
