    Not entirely true. Armstrong in 1999 Tour De France on 4 occasions submitted samples which contained traces of steroids. He claimed it was due to medication he was using for saddle sores and got his corrupt doctor to falsify the date it was prescribed. That along with other tests between that were clean were enough to convince the authorities his lies where the truth.

    So the anti-doping program of any sport is only as good as the governing bodies that regulate them and obviously in boxing more so than in perhaps any other sport the governing bodies are a joke.

    But your point is valid. The anti-doping program in boxing in general is awful. VADA is seen as some gold standard but as it's not true random 24/7, 365 days per year random testing then in reality it's just a PR stunt to make boxing look cleaner than it actually is, as a whole it's ineffective. I'm sure plenty of boxers are doping and enrolled in VADA.

    BTW these is a lot of underlying resentment between Chechens and Russians and they are NOT the same people if people think that. Chechens are very hardended people. They were all exposed to war.

    Remember, Beterbiev lived through THIS.....



    In all fairness, it's a massive credit to Putin that he managed to put a lid on it all and stop the war - money, investment, jobs and creating stability. America should take note tbh....

    Anyway, watch the video and realise that Beterbiev is no Callum Smith or Saunders or even Kovalev. Chechen people are on another level.

    But plenty of boxers have. What's this mysterious drug that all the boxers are taking that goes undetected?

    Holyfield was linked to the Balco scandal. The product they were selling was called "The Cream" a testosterone cream and "The Clear" which was tetrahydrogestrinone which is a masking agent.

    I am well aware of the history w/ Balco. Balco was HUGE and spanned many different sports, both pro and am w/ huge legal ramifications.

    Is there anything like cream/clear? Who's the new Balco running these undetectable PEDs?

    Betebiev's understanding of body mechanics is excellent
