Default Re: Lamont Peterson signs with Golden Boy

This news has really left a sour taste in my mouth personally. I've never been a big fan of Golden Boy but this really has took the biscuit. Yet again they've shown themselves up as being completely two-faced.

After the Khan-Peterson fight De La Hoya and Schaefer were banging on about how "the man in the hat" cheated Amir and about how Peterson never truly won the fight. They even tried to get the fight result overturned and this was before the drugs scandal. To make it worse, when all the failed drug tests stuff did come out about Peterson they quickly erased the win from records and acted as if he'd never fought Khan at all. Like he didn't exist. Now they go and sign him and starting singing his praises? After spending a so long black-balling him and saying his win wasn't a genuine one? Absolute joke, forget principles, morals and standing by your previous word, the almighty dollar is what's most important.

The worst thing is that he has just got away with his PED positive test. They did nothing but give him a short lay off as he probably would have taken anyway, didn't declare the fight a n/c or even strip him of the IBF!

It is just a big joke, we're now at a stage where it is basically OK to cheat in boxing even if you get caught, nothing happens. You'd be a fool not to be on the steroids really, the chances are your opponent is and if he gets caught nothing will happen anyway so may as well just all do it!

shatter and oscar tried for a no contest and for him to be stripped then sign him up
his doping was hardly armstong tackle either he had a very low level of testosterone

Exactly. I hate this whole "he's a brilliant guy and promoter" bullshit the media spin about him. He's a hypocritical prick who's only interested in money, just like nearly every other promoter. Schaefer too. Two-faced nobheads.
