    To be fair, I don't think anyone believes the tainted meat stories. They may say they do if they're something of a fanboy, but they don't. When Fury admitted he was eating a whole uncastrated boar every week nobody actually took him seriously.

    You said they had over 2mg of Nandrolone in their blood. Post a source for that claim or PM me if you don't want to post it here.

    Just look it up, the fail threshold for nandrolone with pretty much all the major doping agencies is 2 micrograms. This isn't some great secret, it's public knoweledge, they probably have all the info on their websites.

    The IOC, UKAD, VADA, USADA etc all have the same standards.

    No expert on these things.

    I think they were probably on something both served bans and were out of the ring and forlonger than the likes of Canelo and Miller. It's almost a risk worth taking for fighters these days.

    It's actually 2.5ng for UKAD. 2.5ng - 15ng is an atypical finding and inconclusive which requires further investigation and or explanation. Greater than 15ng is beyond doubt exogenous and a failed test.

    In the case of Barry Awad (spiked drink) and Dillian Whyte (tainted supplement) they were both banned under the strict liability policy in which an athlete is responsible for what they put in their body. This wasn't the case with Tyson and Hughie which suggests to me theirs was an atypical finding later bought forward as a failed test.
