SPLIT DECISION: CAN YOU BELIEVE ANYTHING SHANE MOSLEY SAYS?
San Francisco, CA- Having sources in both the Manny Pacquiao and Shane Mosley training camps, I’m getting is rave reviews on both men for the most part. That being said, Pacquiao is a near 3-1 betting favorite in the Las Vegas sports books. But are those numbers warranted? Take into consideration that the last time Mosley looked super was when he was on Steroids & EPO for his second fight with Oscar De La Hoya. As for his stoppage of Antonio Margarito in 2009, I think that had more to do with the Mexican being caught before the fight after inserting a plaster of Paris-like block in his hand wrap in the dressing room at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. With the fight De La Hoya set at 154 lbs., ex-BALCO Lab guru told Victor told me me that Shane personally approached him and asked for EPO.
MOSLEY IS A CONFIRMED AND ADMITTED CHEATER!According to Conte, Shane wanted the EPO, a blood doper that increases the red blood cells (oxygen) in him system between 35 and 45%, this meant Shane could train 45% harder, recover, and thus fight 45% harder, because he was moving up in weight to 154 for the De La Hoya rematch. As Conte watched the fight on TV, he credited the Steroids, and the EPO he had supplied Shane with, this Victor said enabled Shane to fight so hard in the late going of the 12-rounder. Weeks later, the FBI got wind of this after finding Shane Mosley’s name in some of the BALCO Lab’s garbage they that had scoured through for almost a year. When the Feds went to the Nevada Commission, they stated the results of Mosley’s post fight urine sample were destroyed, which was the norm I’m told seeing the original tests came back clean. It should also be noted that if Shane Mosley told you the sun was coming up tomorrow, you might want to doubt him after he passed a Polygraph (lie detector) test saying he never took Steroids, EPO, and the like, this seeing he later admitted to under oath, thus Shane confirmed he was both a cheat and a liar!
THE NEVADA TESTING METHODS WERE NOT ADEQUATE
The problem was that the Nevada Commission did not know of, or how to test for the Clear & Cream Steroids, nor the EPO, all three to which Mosley admitted to taking prior to De La Hoya II, this when deposed by Conte’s lawyers years later. Being an admitted cheat, Mosley adhered to Floyd Mayweather’s demands and took random blood testing leading up to their fight of May 2010. Looking old and slow against Floyd, Shane didn’t look much better when he faced Sergio Mora in his next fight. What I’m trying to say is that outside of his admitted use of banned drugs, and the mental meltdown Margarito was facing after being caught trying to “load” his hand wraps, Mosley hasn’t looked good in years. That being said, it appears there is a great possibility that Mosley will be a sitting duck for Pacquiao, a fighter who has been suspected, but never caught, nor ever admitted to using banned drugs like Mosley.
DO ANY OF YOU REMEMBER RODNEY KING?
Even if both of these fighters were “juiced” up (or not) for this fight, I’d have to go with the younger and faster Filipino phenom. When it comes to common opponents, one in particular being Miguel Cotto, although there will always be an asterisk with Pac’s win over Cotto, this seeing he made Miguel scale 145 for a welterweight (147 lb) title fight, this looks like it is a Pacquiao victory. At the end of the night, Shane Mosley will more than likely look like the victim of a beating a gang of police officers much like Rodney King after he tried to evade the cops in a car chase many years ago.
