This should be merged with "Whine about Mayweather/Pacquiao" mega thread.

Floyds such a bad actor. He should have just stuck to his persona of "Damn right I know what TRT is, tell that yellow midget to take the tests" and it wouldn't be so obvious.

Seems like a totally random question. I've only ever heard of hormone replacement therapy in the context of someone transitioning.

It's increasingly becoming the main way of doping in combat sports because it can be obtained legally.

It's what Peterson was doing.

Yeh but you dont spend your life in a gym.


Steroids are all around gyms, and regardless of if he juices or not, he will be around them (just like any other boxer) 24/7

Plus his friend Don Hale (who he has known since his teenage years) owns numerous TRT clinics all over America . . .

Plus he accused Pac of being on 'those power pellets' . . .

Pacman eats power pellets, thats a play on words, as was him calling him yellow. IMO.


But also in my opinion, you are correct, he knows exactly what TRT is, even his body guard, the way he looks at Floyd to see what he will do next, knows that Floyd knows what TRT is.

Its that awkwardness of when you have been caught doing something. Floyd felt that split second panic.

The thing with TRT is Mayweather could go to a Dr who says he has low testosterone and will prescribe him TRT, apply for a medical use exemption and then he is not even technically cheating.

I'm not saying this is the case at all, but this is happening more and more in MMA and boxing and gives an indication of how easy it is to get that testosterone level up to the maximum acceptable level without 'cheating'. That's why it's becoming more and more popular in combat sports. It's exactly what Peterson did.

The bottom line is testing in boxing is shit, there's a myriad of ways to cheat, no one knows who's on what and testing funding and managed by a promoter completely defeats the purpose.
