Common sense says Anthony Joshua is NOT clean, how does he keep passing tests?

    He could be a freak of nature, a statistical anomaly. But more than likely, he's like the 99% of the rest of us and is just on PEDS. How do you explain him passing both VADA and UK random drug tests?


    Is someone paying people off behind the scenes, does he have tip offs when they are coming to test?

    Any or all of that may be true but until such time as he tests positive it's conjecture, potentially libellous and also risks besmirching someone's name and good character without a shred of evidence.

    I have no idea what he does or does not do, but it is like anything in life, the more power and money you have, the more you can get away with. Considering boxing is one of the most corrupted sports in the world and he is a champion, it is not difficult to envision what you are suggesting.

    I defer to you. You are 100% correct.

    I'd just say, to the naked eye, and someone who trains 5 x a week. It's pretty much impossible. I've seen big natural frames before, but he takes the cake. I actually saw a guy who would have been AJ's height with a very similar musculature to him the other day in a night club. The first guy I've ever seen who looked anything like that. Was he roiding? Who knows.

    There is no hard evidence that Barry Bonds used. But people slander his name constantly in media for cheating and using drugs. And yet there is no penalties for anybody doing so. Not professionally nor legally.

    How do they get away with this? The circumstantial evidence points to Bonds using drugs. And the same thing applies to Joshua.

    As you say, who knows? A lot of professional athletes train in the gym I attend as well as body builders. I know that there are some on roids and some natural but I don't know enough to be able to tell which is which based on the eye test.

    There are plenty here who know more than me and I've seen lots of posts from people claiming authority for this or that reason. I'd only counter that the only place where guys talk as much utter ****e as the gym is the pub and I apply the same filter to both places. Other people can condemn the guy based on the eye test and they may be right, but I want no part of it.

    Be fair though, there's a LOT more evidence around Bonds and BALCO that would make a succesful prosecution for libel near to impossible. In AJ's case on the other hand, based on current UK law a lot of people on this forum could be taken to court in the extremely unlikely event that AJ wished to do so.

    I've often thought the same. But then I think. If money and power means you can get away with it, how did Canelo get caught?

    Did they suddenly gain 20 lbs in 2 years whilst already hugely muscular and training to run miles a day?

    Common sense is not a recognised or accredited drug testing agency. However there is some out there and Joshua is signed up to a few of them and tests clearn many many times a year, every year. Im not saying i know for a fact he is a user or he is clean but all the evidence provided leads to only one conclusion. So im guna go with that until something changes.

    He's not a statistical anomaly though. I can show you any number of clean Black athletes who are built like that. Some of you just hate. You should be a part of the Haters Ball or something.

    Joshua is the Usain Bolt of Boxing. Imagine the financial chasm if Joshua had to cancel a fight? Or worse, take a year of suspension. We are talking about hundreds of millions of dollars.
