Default Why are so many UK fighters testing positive now for PEDs?

today with brian magee being banned for six months because of ped use, a fair question to be asked is why are more uk fighters starting to test positive in recent months?

Sports fans are naive to PED use.

70% of professional athletes. I've been saying that for a decade.

Quite likely true, but why UK boxers now, or is it just co-incidence?

(actually I'd not heard much about it so I better check the available info first..TS - when you say so many, who are you actually talkin' bout? -any references would be handy)

the substance was oxilofrine, the same stuff that was found in Powells system. it was an unlabelled ingredient in a sports supplement. because Magee was able to prove this, the ban was only 6 months instead of a possible 2 years.

Magee said he has always been careful about what he takes so this has come as a huge surprise. he never intended to take anything illegal.

Magee's manager Pat Magee is currently in the process of contacting other Athletes who may be at risk after using the same product, with a view to possible legal action.

i don't think any cheating has taken place here. the product hasn't listed all the ingredients so how the hell would you know what's in it? it's their fault, not the Athletes. they should be taken to court over this. innocent people are being called cheats and having their careers looked upon with suspicion. it isn't right.

what makes you say 70%? genuine question. i fear elite level may be higher even than that.

this is exactly the same as the jones situation except what jones reportedly took was legal to buy over the counter at the time. i just want to see how many hypocrites we have on these boards.

do you know how much of that stuff was in Jones system? he'd be basically overdosing on the shit he claimed he took.

not the same at all. the product that Magee was using is available over the counter as well. it's just illegal to use for professional Athletes.

plus, i was suspicious of Jones when he was a Super Middle. just look at his physique! he was definitely on the juice. no doubt.
