@Rantcatrat Floyd hasn't said anything because ironically his uncle Roger said before Petersons misdemeanor was made public, that the reason Khan lost the first fight was because he wasn't using banned substances. He accused Khan of being afraid of being caught and consequently being exposed by Peterson when he didn't have the advantage of using what he called "that shit". I thought maybe Roger was a bit classier than his brother Floyd senior, now I am not so sure
Greenbeanz - I vaguely remembered someone in Floyd's camp saying something disparaging about Khan implying that he used ped's, which is why it is ironic that it was Peterson that was the one using the banned substance.
Still, I would assume Floyd would use this as an opportunity to make his point about testing boxers. It's odd that he isn't.
I notice that Khan has only said that he's disappointed and was ready to win back his belts etc. Not a word of criticism towards Peterson for using Peds Why wouldn't he at least mention if not condemn Peterson, if he hadn't used them himself? It's not as though he is reserved about anything else, I just find it odd.
Khan has been very vocal in his support for Floyd and his testing.
It would not suprise if when Pac and then probably Freddie retire, Khan at some point in his career ends up under Mayweather promotions.
I can never see Khan as a user of any illegal substances, most people just see that he spent so much time with Pac they get trained by the same trainer well floyd thinks pac's a user so khan must be too.
IMO i would say Khan is as clean as they come, he has been through olympic style testing before and has never showed any problems with taking tests and on top of that he's never failed a test evr..
on top of this he is a muslim, he doesnt drink, he starves minself for ramadam once a year and i remember he even admitted he was a virgin a few years back. Do you think he would just decide to Juice up and forget about all his beliefs, i dont
he has his negatives for sure he talks to much crap and thinks he is a better fighter than he is but a drug user never ever IMO
That's like saying Malinaggi should be allowed to do PEDS to make him hit as hard as everyone else. If Peterson has a naturally lower level of testosterone than everyone else then tough shit. Khan has a naturally weaker chin than most and that's tough shit too. Peterson knowingly took a BANNED substance and that's pretty clear cut to me, whether he was justified or not...

P.S. Your analagy of Malignagi being allowed PEDs to hit harder is bullshit we're talking about hormone levels for which there can be a number of reasons they are low. Punch power isn't due to hormones..could be a small factor but also technique, muscle fiber type..
However, if somebody is unnaturally low in testosterone, how fair is it to say "Tough shit dude.." - Not very..and would probably be considered discriminatory if he had a condition that kept his testosterone levels lower than is commonly NATURAL. Hence, why the rules are in place that you can legally supplement as long as you keep levels natural and make the proper people aware. So your opinion is simply that..Opinion. There are already official rules in place that disagree with you.
James Tony is another person with really low testosterone levels. I remember seeing that on discovery channel of all places.
My question to those more knowledgeable than I, if you do have a medical condition that required testosterone shots to keep your hormone level at a normal, would you still be disqualified or a doctors order suffice to clear you to box?
Althugz , it appears you are attemping to sweep this under the rug.
Second, to your argument with @Conrad , isn't that a slippery slope? Once we allow athletes to supplement their natural levels of testosterone, why shouldn't we allow athletes to augment anything where they have a deficiency? If a person is unnaturally low in fast twitch/slow twitch muscle fibers, and science had a invented a procedure to change muscle fiber content, should a person be permitted to do it and compete with other people? Increase the size of lungs to increase stamina? Furthermore, what does "unnaturally low" mean? To whom? It opens up a whole new ethical discussion. I understand if a disease has left you with a hormonal imbalance etc., and you take supplements to get back to your pre-disease condition. It's different if you are "unnaturally low" because that is what you were born with.
