Thank you juice.
Great post from someone who has knowledge on PEDs...
To think that it is just an American problem is bullshit, anyone who thinks that certainly has agenda behind their argument. Boxing has been full of PEDs world wide for decades.. Those who think otherwise or think it has to do with nationality are the ones living in the clouds.
