Default Canidates for Steriod use

I am not making any accusations but if you had to say which fighters fit the mold by behavior and weight gain who would be a suspect. Tyson had the muscle gain and behavior to match, Ike also

Shannon Briggs Michael Tyson, Ike Ibeabuchi, Holyfield, Moorer, Fran Botha, Shane Mosley, Floyd?, Manny? Toney,Pazienza, Roy Jones?

These are just some of the guys i would pick if i was put on the spot

Most of them on that list probably, but we'll never know. Morrison admitted it and Golota looked suspicious too. David Tua?

I wouldn't be surprised if basically any heavyweight from the 80's on was on them... and some from the 70's could be, too. For that reason, i'm not really sure if it should count against their legacy. I'm not advocating drug use, but is it still cheating when everyone does? Or do you want a level playing field. One thing is for certain. It's not a miracle drug. Golota still couldn't take a shot. Roy Jones always had his insane quickness, even in the Olympics in the 80's.

Yeah, it is. To say otherwise completely undermines everything that boxing stands for.

Wasn't Golota busted for roids some time ago?

Wouldn't surprise me looking at that gross ****ing HGH gut he's sported.

Seems to be a lot of patchy knowledge and understanding on these boards; what's your criteria for assuming that people like Tyson and Tua are on roids, that theyre big?

And Moorer, wtf? why the hell would you think he was using performance enhancers.

I agree with you Chris 100%, its a bit like being gay we had all heard the rumors about George Michael but until he got caught in the Loo we didn't know for sure.

I'd pick the 1s in bold, most of them have tell tale signs, and add Golota, Vitali, Wlad, Rahman, Brewster

Dont think Floyd has but u never know

Hopkins and Mosley both have the same cheekbones.

And Hopkins is having a second prime at 42-44.

Is this an indicator?
