Where have you been, bro? If you didn't hear about Gabriel Montoya's expose and Thomas Hausser's recently written articles on the subject. Google Thomas Hausser on Mayweather's failed drug tests. And didn't this Floyd "who is ALWAYS in superb condition" cheated Marquez at weigh-in before their fight. Marquez claimed Floyd was at least 20 lbs heavier and it showed on fight night.
Did you mean the Xylocaine?
That extra weight is intentional I think.
He wanted to KO JMM, he knows he doesn't have to be super quick against him.
It's PEDs bro, not xylocaine. And whether the extra weight (20lbs
) was intentional or not, he couldn't have done it without the aid of supplements and knowledge of how to use them.
(Normally administered by S&C coaches to be safe and effective).
Floyd should be fighting at Super Middleweight if that's the case.
He fought the wrong guy, he should be in the ring with Bernard Hopkins.
Tol, u seem to live both worlds. Fantasy and Reality. U speak ur ridiculous assumptions as if they are facts. May proof ka ba that Floyd is into supplements to regulate his physical condition and that he was under the guidance of an S & C trainer? Kelan lang ba pumasok yang mga S & C trainers sa mundo ng boxing? Naging fad dahil sa lintek na catchweights at mga walang disiplinang boxers na malakas kumain at uminom pag walang laban. At naging high profile ng husto dahil itong si Ariza, mas madaldal pa sa interviews kay Roach. Floyd is following an old school regimen. Early morning runs and gym workouts.
$600,000, or 300 grand for every pound overweight, was the price of Floyd's intention not to cut weight and not to jeopardize his form. He tipped the scales at 146 lbs. after almost 2 years of inactivity. The agreed catchweight was 144 lbs.and he was 2 lbs. overweight. Still it was an ideal weight for him because 146 lbs. is 1 pound less of the Welterweight limit he normally fights in.
Floyd fought Oscar and Cotto at jr Middleweight. Margocheato came at 165 at fight night after weighing in at 150 day before. So, what's surprising if both Floyd and Cotto weighed 165 both at fight time and that Floyd was 20 lbs heavier than Marquez at say 145?
Supplements are not a fad in today's world of boxing. They are indispensable and goes hand in hand with disiplined training methods, if a boxer is to survive the competition and reach the Top. Nonito Donaire has Victor Conte, a known PEDs expert and a Track & Field expert to help him train. Where's Donaire now?
We're talking about the agreed weight limit between Floyd and Marquez, not the rehydration weight. Floyd normally fights at Welterweight division. Before he fought marquez, he fought mostly in the Welterweight division except for that lucrative deal with oscar at 154 lbs. which he had been chasing since he was still at Lightweight division.
If what you are saying is true, how many boxers in top 10 p4p are under the guidance of an S & C trainer? Like i said before, S & C trainers are more in demand when they are handling fighters who are scaling weight divisions. Donaire is currently in his 4th division, that's why. And he's planning to move to the next weight division.
