I know. What's weird is that Tarver, Peterson, Berto and Olubamiwo all seemed like nice guys in interviews.

Edit - Although I heard Berto was a false positive so I guess he shouldn't be included on the list.

No excuses. With so many people getting caught lately it's a wonder why people are still against up to date testing, at least for world championship fights.

Its come to the point where if u suspect anyone is on it they probably are, Khan suddenly gettin massive, people with bodybuilder bodies Berto, Bradley. People seem to forget theres a reason why bodybuilders take roids because they reach a limit where they cant grow anymore so when you got guys like Bradley and Berto lookin huge how do they manage to get to that size and still train properly

He wasn't a false positive. He had traces of nandrolone. Big difference.

There is only one reasonable explanation as to why someone would refuse better testing!

All american athletes take steroids, many are under a lot of pressure to perform well so want to make sure they do. This is just a fact of life, americans will cheat to win.
