    Nobody was ripping to Kovalev for the first 10 years of his career....

    Until he got lackadaisical with his cycle and/or didn't want to pay anybody off for using the most basic of drugs in testosterone...

    Am I to believe that these people think that this is the first time that the Krusher utilised drugs, at the age of 37? He just thought he'd give it a go in his twilight years?

    Alvarez, one of the most brazen juicers in the world, strutting around with GH site injection marks on his abdominals, is also one of the most respected boxers in the world. There's no consistency on this board when it comes to drugs.

    Drugs are a part of all top level sport, but people don't want to believe it.

    I'd say Fury is now just loved by casuals the same way Joshua is. People who follow boxing know he's full of it and a time waster.

    It's not really a suspicion, though. It's how sport works. Once you learn how anti-doping policy and governance operate, it's a no brainer.

    Lance Armstrong is one of my favourite ever athletes - arguably as good an athlete as anyone, but between 1999 and 2011 there were millions of people like you claiming that he was clean and that there was no proof. It was blatantly obvious that he was doped to the gills, like all of his rivals.

    It was only until Nike got 95% of whatever they were ever going to get out of him and thereafter didn't have his back, dropped him like a sack of potatoes and claimed ignorance. Lance is a great example because he's the most tested athlete in history, and also one of the highest doped (various compounds - test, EPO, HGH, corticosteroids, anabolic steroids, blood doping etc) yet only ever failed one test, which was due to negligence and it was swept under the rug. His story highlights all of the various angles of anti-doping. However, there was too much money to be made for too many people (mainly corporations like Nike, Trek, US Postal/Discovery) for anything to come to light during his active years.

    There's nothing wrong with these guys taking the sauce. One of the things I like about MMA is that is is pretty obvious that everyone is on the sauce and nobody seems to care very much.

    People may not want to accept it but it's the truth. Any advantage you can get over your opponent and all that.

    There is plenty wrong with being on the sauce... PLENTY!!

    If u have any awareness of ped use you would know this. Quality, types, price. Peds are not cheap, do i think a lot of the top pros are juicing yeah... Do i think a lot are clean yeah, and as long as there one person clean then peds are a complete no no. Thats before u even get into the argument of what the sport is, differing qualities of ped, prices, access to people in the know etc.

    Ps lance only failed one test that we were made aware of
