“I’m not going to say Pacquiao is doing anything, but he is a little questionable, just a little bit. Me? Test me. Please. I want you to test me,” that was Mosley’s statement in boxingtalk referring to the whole Pacquiao-Mayweather fall out.
Shane Mosley who was saying that he was clean and always been clean was like saying he never lied ever in his life not even one stupid person believes in him after admitting in court that he took “the cream and the clear” a designer steroids during his 2003 bout with Oscar De La Hoya. This designer steroid is a testosterone-based ointment that is used in conjunction with anabolic steroids such as tetahydrogestrinone in short called THG which is used to cover doping. In short this can be taken without getting caught by traditional drug tests. Mosley claims that he wasn’t aware that he was taking steroids and sued Victor Conte the founder and president of Bay Area Laboratory Co-operative for libel even though his former trainer Derryl Hudson supported Conte’s allegation against Mosley. Hudson said that Mosley was aware about the drug because he talked about it during and after visit to BALCO.
Andre Berto had to pull out on their Jan.23 fight with Mosley because of the Haiti disaster and Shane is rumored that he would fight Floyd Mayweather Jr. in May 1. Now he joins a number of minions who puts a cloud of doubt against Manny but what does his statement says? Nothing, because even though he proclaims that he is cleanest fighter in the planet nothing will ever take back his admission of taking steroids who would trust someone who is an admitted cheater? The hypocrisy of Mayweather and GBP is clearly seen in this match-up after Floyd refusing to fight Manny because of allegations and now he will fight a known steroid user.
Mosley is confident about random blood and urine testing because he went through those tests without being detected and let us not forget that USADA never tested anyone in HGH or EPO through blood test with the growing number of undetected performance enhancing drugs. When he said that he didn’t know that it was steroids and would you agree if someone puts an unknown substance to your body without knowing what it is?
To be blunt and simple if a known drug dealer like Floyd Sr. and a known ducker like his son Jr. and an admitted drug user in Shane Mosley questions someone’s credibility what would you do? Simple move on as if nothing happens because frankly you don’t want to go down to their level.
