    Default Andre Berto test positive for steriods...WTF!!!

    Well just read Dan Rafael say that Berto test positive for steriods, obviously the Ortiz rematch is in big trouble.

    What is the trend here Is everyone doping? Boxing is looking so bad and I keep asking myself if any investment as a viewer in it is worth it. Watching a PPV is obviously something you pay day of and if the fight is not on then you dont pay, but what if you want to watch a fight live, you can get tickets refunded if opponents are changd but if you had to book a flight and a hotel you are out that money...watching the sport is becoming as financially risky as fighting in it is physically.
    The key is Self-discipline.

    If this is true then it certainly is bad news on the heels of Lamont Peterson being caught for using synthetic testosterone.

    Boxing isn't alone in this though as MMA is filled with it as well. One of my favorite fighters, Overeem just got caught for testosterone levels that were through the roof !

    Ortiz should go through with the fight on the condition that he is allowed one flagrant head butt with no penalty. And also that he is allowed to kiss Berto a minimum of 3 times afterwards.
    "You knocked him down...now how bout you try knockin me down ?"

    LMAO!! I think he'd prefer a suspension for Berto.
    Well...... on second thought......

    while this is true, MMA fights have cards that a stacked usually with 5 good fights in different weight classes with fighters you want to see fighting each other. Boxing gives us one good fight and a bunch of fillers most of the time and if that big fight gets cancelled usually the whole card is dumped.

    And Floyd asking for strict blood/urine tests is a bad thing? Let's clean the sport.

    My personal stance on this is every top athlete out there is doping. With that being said, this still came off as a shock to me and is indeed one of those WTF moments as we just had the Peterson issue not too long ago. Talk about a controversial month for boxing.

    Of course that many of them dope and people are fooled by "hasn't failed a drug test" while of course every cheater fails after having not failed, like if in boxing there were all saints when in baseball all of them were cheating

    To be fair, Floyd has never sought VADA testing for any of the fighters he promotes or fighters he trains with, he hasn't petitioned the Nevada commission to improve their testing procedures, he hasn't come out with any position whatsoever on the Peterson/Khan fiasco, and I don't expect him to come out with anything on the Berto-Ortiz II situation either. He wants tests to ensure safety and rule compliance for himself.

    Time for Khan vs Ortiz? Let Berto and Peterson sit it out.

    Ortiz isn't fighting Berto now.

    Kahn is not going to fight Ortiz.
    1-Timing-Khan stopped training and was taking a short break. He'd have to start training again ASAP.
    Also Roach is preoccupied with training Pac now, then has Chavez Jr. in mid June. No time to get Kahn ready for Ortiz by June 23rd. Kahn's team looking for a July date.
    2-Weight-Khan was training for his body to get down to 140. I'd assume he doesn't do alot of strength work to make sure he can make 140. If Khan is going to move to 147-he will have a camp where he is looking to add a few pounds of muscle onto his frame.
    3-Opponent-Khan isn't going to move to 147 and look to take on the biggest motherfucker in the division in his first fight. Ortiz weighed 164 pounds when he walked into the ring against Floyd. And Ortiz isn't just a big welter, he is pretty good.

    Khan probably moves up to 147 soon. But he isn't going to seek out a challenge like Ortiz in his first fight. His team probably goes for a relatively safe, but lower top 10 ranked guy (espn or other unbiased rankings).

    This is very unfortunate. Berto had the chance of a lifetime to get revenge and for once assert his obvious talent in a defining fight and tarnishes it all with this. I don't get it at all.

    Floyd was being a dick when he started all this shit....... But maybe it wasn't such a bad thing afterall . Berto's prison swoll ass was kinda a Holyfield / kirkland type giveaway but some real surprises are going to come out of all this cheating . Hey margacheto got a title shot for his efforts , I say berto should skip ortiz and fight Floyd next.

    disappointing . Peterson and Berto should be a wakeup call- let's clean the sport up!

    but would the promoters want this?

    All I can say is what a stupid bastard. Peterson and now this bell end? Then that God bothering gay denier Manny. Boxing is saturated with retarded types.
