    Don’t want Miller near the ring anytime soon but I’ll enjoy Tyson jabbing his fat head all night and the build up would be entertaining.

    Thoughts?

    The cynicism of this 'sport' never ceases to amaze...

    This isn't just bullshirt, but lineal bullshirt.

    Which corrupt backwater commision is going to give that man a license? There's no legit reason to give him the benefit of the doubt, as it's clear that he purposely doped himself to Bolivian to gain a massive advantage in a dangerous sport, in which you can do some serious harm.

    Money talks, of course he’ll get a license. Frank will want Fury to fight Miller for the same reason Eddie wanted AJ to.

    Miller will talk and draw interest in the fight, probably even more so with this whole drugs thing around the case. It’s perfect for them.

    Like I said, a corrupt backwater commision it is. Still it should get blasted by boxingfans worldwide.
    And of course integrity will be thrown out of the window for profit. If it happens I hope Miller somehow wins and tests positive again after to make it an even bigger shirtshow.

    One ped cheat fighting another alleged ped cheat
    Yet people only crying at the ped cheat caught
    Lol
    Both as bad as each other
    Yet one will be victimized and the other celebrated
    YouTube and Google running boxing these days it seems

    Why do so many people bring this up?
    EVERYONE DOPING UP DOES NOT CREATE A LEVEL PLAYINGFIELD!

    Think about this for a minute...
    You have 2 boxers,
    Boxer A with big power, good skill, very good chin but a useless gastank that drains in about 4 rounds.
    Boxer B with good power, very good skill, decent chin and an engine that go on for 20 rounds if he has to.

    12 rounds, no doping, who wins? Answer; Boxer B 9 out of 10 times, just waiting out the storm and taking A out in the later rounds when his tank is empty.

    Now, same boxers but with a shirtload of EPO in their system and some steroids as well.
    12 rounds, tables are turned, with Boxer A's lousy gastank being artificially enhanced as well as his power, very good chance he blasts Boxer B out of there around the 6 to 8 round mark.

    Level playingfield nowhere to be seen.

    That's the trouble with doping, it can nullify some fatal flaws that completely reverses the outcome of a fight.
    And then there's the pesky thing as not everyone reacting the same on the same medication, some can't even endure it, but that's a whole other thing.

    It's the same thing with Lance Armstrong. People say "he was still the best" as many were juicing at the time (not all, like some say as was clear due to the evidence of some of his team only starting to use when in his service, and got significantly better themselves). But the guy wasn't even a tour cyclist before starting to empty the pharmacy. He couldn't perform on that level for 3 weeks in a row, while others could. Like a world class sprinter usually doesn't do well in time trials, as he is faster as the other contestants but can't keep that up for very long.
    Now Lance made himself a tour cyclist, by juicing himself to the gills. Is that a level playingfield? Someone who wouldn't have a snowball's chance in hell of winning the Tour de France clean, but doped up (maybe even if everyone was doped up) he could. Is that fair?

    You would Hope promoters would have some integrity and and stay clear of cheats for a while.

    Remember Whyte got banned for two years for taking a stimulant every body and their Mother’s was taking at the gym for a while. Was in a drink called Jack3d, I even tried it at one point. Two years was definitely them setting a example of Whyte, the stuff helped you be more motivated to train, but would not say it had any real performance enhancing effects. Think it was only banned because someone unhealthy took it and had a heart attack, or stroke.

    Everyone's favorite 80's and 90's boxers were dripping with PED's. Far more than today's athletes. It is wrong, and I hate it, but be everyone needs to be consistent with their condemnation.

    Miller should have at least a 2 year ban with testing throughout the ban.

    I think Fury has a soft spot for Miller and wants to restore his public image. They’re both Pedded out loudmouthed fatties. They’d make a great comedy duo.

    This.

    Plus, if doping is allowed it basically forces every boxer to take PEDs to compete whether they want to or not — and take on additional health risks that come with that.

    Fury can see himself running around and putting a clinic on slow-ass Miller.

    I can see it too.

    Dumb move, this could backfire due to the extent of the doping, combine that with another perceived 'tune-up', fans might turn against this fight. When even Hearn sounds righteous about this situation you've got a real problem.
