What do you guys think? Your opinions matter??
Despite his failings outside the ring Floyd is the best of this generation. Obvious Pactard is obvious.

Overrated by fanboys, underrated by haters like pretty much any other boxer. His skills are incredible but he has a way to pick his fights that is very irritating about him.

He's not nearly as overrated as many of the primitive old timers boxing fans love to worship here, though

pacquiao could beat him. I would of favored pac 2-3 years ago.

greatness isnt based on "could of / would of".

Floyd is the greatest of this era.. how? Pacquiao has already proven he's greater, a long time ago.

Best is debatable, since Floyd never fought the other 'best of this era.'

Default Re: Floyd stumped by Testosterone Replacement Therapy question Therapy

That's the face of a liar folks. He's most definitely on it and was taken right off guard not expecting that


BUT, there is nothing wrong with having average testosterone levels so it's not illegal whatsoever.

If he is taking TRT and his body is no longer producing high enough T-levels that you aren't going to be cycling off of it like other PEDs for testing because you need your weekly shots to just be active in every day life or you will be tired Mentally and Physically. Like an Old Man.

And athletes that are on TRT tend to have their names thrown out there quite easily in this day of age because Testers and others find out.

But could he still be on? Sure, why not. So can the whole lot.

.
the drug testing is weak. they know when they are going to be tested.

if he has a theraputic use exemption form for trt it doesn't matter if synthetic test shows up in his system.

all floyd has to do to get approval is get a doctor to agree to give him it.$$$$$

the point is that athletes that get this treatment generally don't really need it. it is just an excuse to use a PED. the limits on test are related to the testosterone/epitestosterone ratio in the body. if you are jacking up your T levels all you have to do is increase the ept to the same level to beat the test.

a huge majority of boxers will be using PEDs. the testing system guarantees it.

I must admit I'm biased against Mayweather, simply because he has no humility whatsoever. I remember the Tyson of old, he used to beat a man half to death, then he'd be the first one to go pick the guy up afterwards, make sure he's okay.

That's what I had against Ali also. He seemed to have this attitude that everyone was out to get him, so he had to be better than everyone else, physically and mentally. I always wondered where his spirituality fit in with that whole point of view.

Just a few names to throw at ya.

Hatton - Fought at 147, not Hatton's natural weight class

ODLH - in my opinion, well past his prime and still managed to give Floyd a tough fight

Arturo Gatti - Past his prime, but In my opinion was never a great fighter. Only known for his "brawls" with Micky Ward.

Zab Judah - Mayweather beat him, but Zab gave Floyd another tough fight.

Castillo - Got beat in Rematch, but 1st fight was extremely close.

Ortiz - Got sucker punched by Floyd, but Ortiz deserved it (in a way).

Mosley - a 38/39 year old who nearly put Floyd on his a**

I am not a hater, but I dislike when Floyd says "I am the best ever" and starts comparing himself to Ali.
I think the 'best ever' thing is kind of overboard. I know people thought the same thing too when Ali was saying he's the greatest while he was fighting. I think people reflecting back on history should say that after boxers retire. The thing I also don't like about Floyd is that he puts too much emphasis on his 0 losses. Great fighters have lost and bounced back, some got stopped and destroyed in the process too. I think he puts tremendous pressure on himself to train harder because of it. Now lots of people not only want to see him lose, they want him to fall hard in life, period. Funny thing is, those same people swear they'll never buy or watch his PPV fights again after he wins (either by boring decision or cheap shot) only to watch it again next time.

So Corrales wasnt in his prime when he won beat him....was not Castillo who went on to become lineal champion again....Hatton was undefeated and a two division champion...you dont take him seriously because he is a dick outside the ring...in the ring he does his job and you cant ask for more than that

Sure they need it, and if they don't their test levels are gonna skyrocket and they'll be caught pretty fukin fast unless they're using some test blockers.

Just this week possibly the best football team I have ever seen 'Barcelona' were knocked out of the European cup and now everybody says they are overated.

Floyd isnt overated - he is the best of his generation.

Is he overhyped - yes a little , but that is the world we now live in.
We have a winner /thread

And if that's the case, why bother getting it from the doctor at all -- that's not true TRT whatsoever. That's called juicing.
