Pulev has no head movement and fights straight up inviting the Wlad jab and inviting a Wlad right hand to rip his head off. I think Pulev gets brutally KO’d in this one.

PED MESS

I’m afraid PED abuse does seem to be more widespread and rampant among boxers in the US. Testing in European countries like Germany and Britain is actually of a good standard. I think OSDT is mandatory for all fighters who appear on Sauerland bills over in Germany and I’m told every fighter in Britain is tested if they take part in a title fight from British level up to world title fights.

Mariusz Wach has spent an extensive amount of time training over in the US. He’s actually based in New Jersey.

Andrzej Fonfara is another Polish fighter who has tested positive for steroids since being based over in the US. He fights out of Chicago.

SREDMOND the answer to the question is that standard testing was not good enough to catch them. Therefore what are we supposed to conclude from that? That it’s not exactly difficult for drug cheats to evade getting caught under the standard testing protocol.

I do agree that fans just randomly pointing fingers at fighters they have an axe to grind against is wrong. But it’s a little different when fighters are displaying all the hallmarks and telltale signs of PED abuse and are overly reluctant or completely adverse to undergo any type of additional testing above and beyond the regulatory standard testing procedure the commission has in place.

Tark, I agree with you on changing trainers for Wlad, but he is pretty loyal. Don’t see him changing anytime soon. Heard that he and GGG work together at times and GGG is giving him some hints on the body shots. Would be great to see Wlad send out a liver shot when someone comes in low swinging widely instead of leaning on them. The are wide open with his reach at that time. At least he is willing to keep learning, most fighters have checked out of the improvement world long before his age.

Posted June 26, 2014 8:38 pm 


TARK

Wladimir is amazing.. The only way you get better at 38 is to keep improving technically because you’ve probably peaked out physically. Obviously that’s what he’s doing.

The only thing I don’t like is his selection of a coach after Steward died. He went with Jonathon Banks, who is far from an elite trainer. Why not go with Abel Sanchez, or somebody who could teach him a left hook to the body or some infighting technique?

It’s like watching Ali sometimes. When WK’s opponent is open for a liver shot nothing happens. When GGG’s opponent pulls his guard in he’s down for the count. Left hook to the short ribs and it’s over.

Because we have people like RJJ, Holyfield, Toney, Tarver, Mosely, Peterson, Love, Chavez Jnr who all got juiced off their mongoose, went freaking ape on the pharmaceutical sweeties, and nooone gave them any kind of punishment, and you have other drug cheats like Tyson warming up a seat in the HOF for them.

The US needs to take the punishments more seriously.

They need to be dropped from any HOF consideration, get 2 year bans, $250,000 fines, be made to do an educational course, and really I think they should also be stabbed a couple of times. Not deep enough to perforate any internal organs, but enough to get a nice puddle of their PED riddled blood on the floor to be sniffed for PEDS by trained sniffer dogs.

Pulev is a very talented boxer and I like this fight because it gets Wladimir’s mandatory out of the way and then allows the path for what could get extremely interesting between Klitschko Stiverne Wilder, Fury and to a lesser extent a returning Haye. Pulev is the part spoiler right now. He’s a tough tough challenge but I don’t think an upset win for him actually does well for the division. We all want to see total unification, and I think most genuine fans find Fury and Wilder to be extremely interesting opponents for Wladimir even though they are less proven or solid than Pulev. Fury for me is interesting just because; he’s very big, can hit Wladimir on the inside and wont be leaned on or tied up and is a loose cannon mentally and will try everything possible to hype the fight and unsettle Klitschko. Wilder’s interesting only because his power is freakish, he’s also big and there’s the genuine ‘one punch can turn it around’ aspect to that fight. Wach landed just one in round 5 and things got interesting. Wilder hits harder than David Haye and Samuel Peter and they brought respective dramas to their fights for similar reasons. I want 1./ Klitschko to look good again beating Pulev thereby erasing his bad performances of late 2./ Fury to look good and do what he should in beating Chisora 3./ Wilder to stun Stiverne and prove his metal 4./ Klitschko to have an entertaining defense against Fury 5./ Wilder to season himself with 1-2 title defenses 6./ Wilder Vs Klitschko stateside. That is a helluva lot to look forward to

No point talking about Joshua right now. Just was the case with David Price you simply don’t know anything about his realistic credentials for world level until he has to take a big punch. However you do or do not rate modern contenders they like their historical predecessors could all take a punch when they needed to. Byrd, Brewster, Peter, Chagaev, Thompson etc all had solid tough guy status. It’s not proved with Joshua yet simple as!

Big Ham, makes a point regarding the MYTHOLOGY of PEDS in boxing… Keith Kizer who was with the Nevada State Athletic Commission said that there had been something like 60 positive tests since 2010 and the BULK of the fighters who were caught had LOST their fights…The notion that all you need is a magic potion and the win is in the bag, is not necessarily supported by the evidence… Boxing is still a sport where technique and skill are a HUGE part of the game as opposed to just strength… Vargas and Mosley II are notable bouts where the perceived advantage did not manifest (I though Oscar won the 2nd fight with Shane)… If a guy is caught cheating he should be appropriately sanctioned but pointing fingers at every boxer or questioning every KO is just WEAK and frankly SILLY…

Foreman’s pick for greatest heavyweight of all time? Lennox Lewis. He’s said it many times. He also likes Wladimir a lot.

Foreman said.., “A big, tall, strong man with a hard, fast jab is tough to beat.”

Foreman wasn’t a great attacker… That’s why Young was able to keep jabbing him from range and stay away from him.. Foreman couldn’t charge in and put his head on you like Frazier — he stayed off you and traded jabs.. Only his jab was slow and he didn’t slip or block your jab well.

Frazier would have beaten Young I believe — Joe would have charged through Jimmy’s light punches like he did to Jimmy Ellis..

Foreman was an example of a horrible style matchup for a walk-in hooker like Smokin’ Joe.. Frazier was a huge favorite — but smart bettors laughed their way to the bank.. That was probably the single worst style matchup in history.

When Wladimir wants to laugh his ass off he probably watches that fight. It’s funny

I was at Foreman v Lyle with a bunch of other young heavyweights. Foreman v Lyle was a disgraceful, amateurish mess. There was unanimous agreement among all of us young heavyweights that Foreman was the worst boxer we ever saw. And the only reason he survived was his trainers kept him away from good boxers with skills.

When Foreman was matched with Jimmy we all called Young and congratulated him in advance for kicking George’s ass. We all knew what the outcome would be, even though everybody knew Young was picked because he couldn’t hurt a flea.

Sremond lies again.., Eastern European … Women used to bench 425 back then.

Which women athletes benched 425 back then??? NONE!!!

The bench press isn’t the best indicator of overall body strength anyway. Lifting a 200lb or heavier dumbbell, from floor to overhead press with either hand, in 2 seconds or less each, is something very few strong guys can do.

That’s only for big heavyweights of course.

For smaller dudes, doing one-armed chin-ups from a dead hang, or getting a 2-foot push-off on a plyometric pushup takes massive strength and explosiveness.

Lots of guys can bench 425 with ease. I’ve never seen a women do that in my life… Benching barbells stresses the shoulders and widens out the chest — HORRIBLE for boxers.

Strongman, when in my younger day I was rippling with muscle and referenced as big guy everywhere I went and never touched a drug legal and or illegal in my
Life.

I weight trained, did mad cardio and ate healthy 6 days a week, only time I cheated was on Sunday to knockout a pizza pie all by myself.

What’s wrong with this nuttiness thinking it’s impossible to be in good shape without doing drugz is just plain silly.

Klitschko has everything at his disposal to maintain good nutrition, trainers, knowledge and such to keep in shape.

Klitschko isn’t tyson fist of Twinkies fury.

Just to keep everyone’s safety in mind there should be drug testing but blaming individual s of things of that nature when there is no proof isn’t cool.

I think ALOT of you guys are really ignorant as it pertains to “drug testing” reality is that unless an athlete is actually caught with compounds in hand or tests positive then he should be given the benefit of the doubt… Too many ESB nutcases LOVE to invalidate any fight results or accomplishments with the “he was juicing” I remember when guys were accusing Pacquiao, then they accused Marquez when he KOed Pac Man… If a guy tests dirty under established standards then he deserves what he gets, but this should not be used as a tool to slander and degrade fighters you don’t like…

The USA is rife with steroids and PED abusers. The drug testing procedure over there has been an absolute joke for a long time.

The punitive measures they level on convicted cheats and known abusers are tantamount to a slap on the wrist. There should be a big cloud of suspicion hanging over the careers of all fighters who’ve tested positive or been caught in possession of anabolic steroids and PEDs.

Even many boxers who aren’t American by birth but have based themselves over in the US or spent a lot of time training in the gyms over there have been busted for steroids.

Guillermo Jones
Franz Botha
Richard Hall
Mariusz Wach
Andrzej Fonfara

Clinton Woods who lost twice to convicted steroid cheats over in the US was appalled by the absence of testing over there.

ANTONIO Tarver – the man who stripped Sheffield boxing hero Clinton Woods of his treasured world title four years ago – has been suspended after testing positive for the anabolic steroid drostanolone.

The scandal doesn’t surprise Woods, who wants the sport to clean its act up, particularly in America.

Tarver outpointed Woods in Florida in April 2008 taking the IBF light heavyweight crown Woods had owned for three years. There is no suggestion Tarver broke the rules to beat the Steel City man.

But Today Woods, who runs a gym in Westfield, said: “I fought in America three times (Tarver, Roy Jones Jr, 2002, and Tavoris Cloud, 2009) and the testing situation was always joke. In three fights, I had one little test and was told it was only for marijuana.

“It’s always annoyed me how rife American boxing is with drugs and steroids, but at least they are cracking down on it now and people are being caught. The trouble is that people there will only get fined pocket money.”

Tarver reportedly received a $1m purse earlier this month despite failing a urine test. He was suspended from boxing, fined $2,500 but is appealing.

“Did he have steroids in him when we boxed? I wouldn’t know” said Woods. “But in fairness he didn’t beat me because of anything like that, I just underperformed.”

Woods, who quit after losing to Cloud in Florida in 2009, said British and European title fights routinely attracted drug tests. But last weekend’s Central Area title fight in Sheffield, for example, and many others like it did not. “I’d like to see random tests to keep everybody clean” said Woods. “No decent boxer would argue with that.”

Tarver has apologised and says he may have made an innocent mistake. “I’ve always been a proponent of a clean sport and advocated rigorous drug testing” he says. Tarver is the third boxer to test positive recently. Lamont Peterson did the same for synthetic testosterone – his match against Amir Khan to be cancelled. Andre Berto tested positive for norandrosterone.

And you don’t know what Wladimir does with his time you idiot.. He would not risk his health taking PEDs..

Wladimir knows modern drug-free athletes have shattered most all the World Records from the PED and steroid era of the 1970’s, when PED’s were still legal.. So he knows modern training methods work better than PED’s.

Of course Wlad and Vitaly took illigal drugs. No doubt about it. It is matter of time to get caught. Wlad does not allow random testing on him as Pulev is subject to testing any where in world he travels. If Pulev does not sleep in his home town he has got to ring sunctioning body and give them a tel number and place where he stays over night. They can turn up at any time to test him.

That’s crazy Derek… Primo Carnea was much bigger (up to 275lbs on a 6’6″ frame) and he fought in the 1930’s before PED’s were around.

The K Bros are not chemists.. They have no idea about PEDs but want nothing to do with them. Wladimir has nutritionists and strength trainers working for him and they do a great job.

Wladimir loses weight when he’s not in training camp.. because he’s running around, missing meals, and doing a million and one things.

He actually puts on about 10 pounds in training camp because of the regular meal, workout, and sleep schedule… Working that hard builds up a big appetite and he eats very well.

Vitali got pinched years ago, and both brothers are sports scientists so they know how to defeat the very lenient testing regimen. Only random testing will keep it honest. I think both brothers are very suspect, no one was ever that muscular at that height until today’s substances came along.

Turb0-H@mster saluting the Suarez nibble

Honestly however it gets stacked up – anyone, and I mean ANYONE who tests positive for an Anabolic st3ro1d should be outright banned for at least 2 years.

The whole drug system falls apart when people can plead ignorance, that is why there is strict liability for what athletes put into their body.

The fact that st3ro1d supplements (are/were so freely available in the USA raises two contrasting points……

1. It sets a context for it being understandable that some athletes might ingest them unwittingly – something people will use to defend favoured athletes.

2. It raises the very real possibility that almost every US based fighter has been (knowingly/unknowingly) using st3roids right up until the point that testing was introduced.

If we stoop to accept the “I didn`t know I was taking it” argument, the converse if “How do any of you know you weren`t?”

It`s not like anyone buys these supplements because they like the flavour – they do it to aid training and recovery. If you are spending the cash and putting it into your body believing it does this, there has to be some part of you asking “why/how does it work?”.

It`s the very fact that boxing fans and organisations are inclined to write off failed drug test as a bit naughty, while glove tampering is pilloried that acts as an encouragement for people to cheat.

Even when someone like Shane Mosely admits cheating in court, noone cares. He just smiles and everyone in the US says “oh it`s okay” and start dusting off a seat in the HOF for him.

Conte is a salesman not a scientist, but he is right about the fact that boxing’s drug testing is a joke, and at this point it looks deliberately designed to be so.

TARK – RJJ didn`t test clean in a B-Sample, – you are absolutely making that up.

Why are so so keen to allege cheating in multiple other circumstances, but when there is the massive stink of r01ds around RJJ you believe any old rubbish his team trott out.

From Thomas Hausers journalism…

Roy Jones Jr and Richard Hall each tested positive after a May 13, 2000, championship bout in Indianapolis which Jones won on an eleventh-round knockout.

Jake Hall (chairman of the Indiana State Boxing Commission at the time) later told Elisa Harrison of BraggingRightsCorner.com, “The information we received indicated that Mr. Jones failed the drug test for anabolic ster01ds. Talking to Roy’s attorney, Fred Levin, he indicated that Roy had taken a substance called Ripped Fuel, an over-the-counter supplement that is not illegal but is an illegal substance according to the IBF and the other sanctioning bodies. He admits that Roy took that. I have no knowledge whether he took that or some other substance.”

On August 2, 2000, Marian Muhammad (then executive secretary of the IBF, the lead sanctioning body for the fight) sent letters to Jones and Hall advising each man that he had tested positive for an unspecified anabolic ster01d. No further action was taken.”

No lets be clear no nasal spray has EVER EVER EVER in history contained an anabolic st3r0id. A cortico-ster01d maybe, but absolutely not an anabolic.

They are used for completely different things.

I have a degree in Biochemistry and pharmacology, and work in drug research, so I DO know about this stuff.

Ripped fuel is the fat burning supplement Jones took… It contains Ephedrine which is a banned substance for Boxing. He just didn’t know when he drank it.

The nasal spray Roy used had a steroid in it. They used to have some of that in over-the-counter nasal sprays, even though laws had been passed to make you need a prescription for that steroid. The manufacturer was late in changing the formula.

Soliman took an over-the-counter supplement that contained a steroid… Sometimes manufacturers add cheap steroids to supplements to make them seem more effective than they are… They don’t expect to be caught.

Re Sam Soliman – he didn`t take anything illegal at all. The Germans claim he tested positive for a performance enhancer, the IBF retested the sample and found nothing on their banned list.

Re Vitali, he had a cortisone injection, it wasn`t an anabolic and there is a big difference – one is used via local injection to soothe inflammation and help healing, the other injected IM to act as a hormone systemically and aid muscle growth and recovery.

TARK – we have been over this with Roy Jones. It wasn`t a nasal spray – that was one of a myriad of excuses Roy’s team concocted as they scrabbled to explain it.

What they eventually say happened was there was a r01d in his ripped fuel supplement. It wasn`t mislabelled either, the ingredients were on the supplement. If this IS how he failed the test it was due to his own teams inattention.

However, it was never actually released which r01d he tested positive for, and it all got brushed under the rug with hardly any action.

This was crazy given that this was the FIRST ever time RJJ was tested for r01ds and he turns up dirty.

To me that shouldn’t be swept under the rug, he could well have been cheating his way through his whole career to that point, and the only reason he is getting the benefit of the doubt when he does get tested is because of his popularity.

Steroids are often used in the medical field. I received steroids as a young man (too many years ago) to help accelerate healing of an injury. It is often given in the IV’s for this purpose. It is usually a one time event or short term, but it is fairly common in the US for this type of treatment.

I think false positives are always gonna be a huge factor. You guys have to understand the medical industrial complex does not even have a legitimate test to check you for the common cold. This is something that effects the world 5 billion + times a year. Any number of supplements will test positive for doping. And it is an exaggerrated myth that they are “contaminated” supplements everytime. Things like pregnenlone, Dhea, cow glandulars, tribulus, free form amino acids. They can always test positive. As do poppy seeds, hemp seed butter, coffee enema’s ( you will test positive for exceeding the caffeine limits). Even inorganic meat, such as when an entire soccer team tested positive from the meat they ate at a restaurant.

Larry OLUBAMIWO is a British drugs cheat who was selling banned substances to other boxers and got caught in 2012….. He got 4 years, but squealed on others and had his sentence reduced.

Below is a newspaper report on the scumbag.

Heavyweight boxer Larry Olubamiwo has been banned for four years for multiple anti-doping rule violations.
Olubamiwo, from London, tested positive for the blood-boosting substance EPO on January 13 following a bout with Sam Sexton.

Banned: Larry Olubamiwo (right) has been banned for doping offences
He later admitted to using 13 banned substances, including human growth hormone and anabolic steroids, over a six-year period competing as an amateur and professional boxer.
All of the 33-year-old’s medals, titles, and points won in bouts since January 1 2006 have been forfeited.
UK Anti-Doping said their investigation into Olubamiwo had emerged from intelligence provided by the US Drug Enforcement Administration relating to the trafficking of anabolic steroids, human growth hormone and insulin growth factor.
UK Anti-Doping chief executive Andy Parkinson said: ‘This is an extreme example of someone who has engaged in an intentional and uncompromising doping programme over a sustained period with little or no regard for his own health, the reputation of the sport he competed in, or his fellow competitors.

Counted out: Olubamiwo admitted to taking 13 banned substances
‘The list of substances Mr Olubamiwo admits to taking is both alarming and disappointing.
‘However, he is now banned for a period of four years thanks to information which informed our testing programme.
‘This reinforces the fact that testing in the UK is targeted and intelligence-led, and that law enforcement has an invaluable role to play in the fight against doping.’
British Boxing Board of Control general secretary Robert Smith added: ‘While this case is extremely sad for the boxing community as a whole, it demonstrates that cheats cannot hide and that doping will not be tolerated.

Fight Aficionado, Wach for one, but it does tend to be more of an American issue, on this I will agree, at least for boxing. For bodybuilding, etc. it is worldwide.

Screwy Loui name one Eastern European boxer who got busted. In boxing it’s Americans who are known PED abusers. James Toney, Roy Jones, Mike Tyson, and Evander Holyfield are among just a few who’ve held a heavyweight title and either tested positive or were proven to be juiced up.

I agree, he does need to be tested. Wladimir always looks like the man of steel. I would give him the benefit of the doubt, but testing him would validate him even more.

Eastern Europeans are known steroid abusers. If you count the athletes who have been caught, i guarantee you that there will be NO comparison.

American fighters should be doubly drug tested – they are the ones who keep cheating, but the septics don`t care – like Holyfield, RJJ, TOney, Peterson, Bey, Love, Tarver, Mosely.

All drug cheating scum, but it doesn`t affect their marketability in the USA.

Mayweather settled the Pacman suit when it looked like some of his records were going to be dragged out too.

Everyone knows that hgh got delivered to H. Field. No link whatsoever to Evander Holyfield. Even though Mr H Field was supposedly living at Evander’s address at the time. No link. No evidence! Evander is still my chump, sorry, champ.

Wladimir looked unbelievably strong for his last fight with Leapai.. He came in over 248 and ripped to shreds.. He was brutal.

Maybe it was just in response to the massive criticism he received after the Povetkin fight. Or because Leapai hammered Boytsov, but Wladimir seemed to up his game for Leapai. His finance was watching of course, and that is some of it.

I actually don’t think marriage and boxing are a super match. Once you’re married you’re screwing all the time and you lose that edge. Particularly if your wife is an insatiable humper and suck freak. That’s fantastic for a while. After 6 months you might be thinking, “WTF is with this crazy person.”

Wach tested positive for steroids and that was done in Germany when he fought Wlad, that is why he had the super human strenght to get blasted so hard and stay on his feet. He admitted to it and was banned for a year. Wlad had the same tests done, and has had for years.

Take note: Boxtra picks Pulev. At least until wlad wins. Then…either he will deny the pick or claim it was an imposter. He is the greatest fight test ever born and the greatest favour he could do this site is to sod off

Yo, Evander didn’t test positive, but he did have illegal HGH delivered to his house. He also does get Glukor treatment, but this is due to a medical condition, so shouldn’t be considered a PED. But HGH is definitely a PED. Briggs may well have to take some steroids for his asthma conditions, but steroids do not usually explain an enlarged skull and midsection, that is generally from HGH. It could be that Briggs suffers from acromegaly, but otherwise it is difficult to explain the head growth.

Mandatory testing and stripping of titles if no compliance. Simple

Posted June 24, 2014 3:31 pm

Oh and they lost the purse bid so wlad could easily say yeah we can get tested in germany and you guys are paying for it.

i hope the drug test is a bit tougher than the american one lol.

This is stupid. Germany has more strict testing than the US does. And Wlad has always been clean.

Didnt wlad already go through this with povetkin.

If the champ has nothing to hide, why not agree to testing?

So many people accuse soo many boxers of doping, but when boxers want additional tests– these same people scream GAMESMANSHIP.

People want to accuse some boxers of doping, but want to shield others from increased testing.

Every championship fight should be subject to the most stringent testing available.

How many have accused Shannon Briggs ( who never failed a test ) of being on steroids?

The tired accusations of Evander ( who never failed a test ), but defense of the Klitschkos from the same damn people…

Wlad has been tested by many different countries, including Russia & the USA when he fought there. He doesn’t have the physic of a PED user. He has long lean muscle mass and actually puts on weight during training. Haters can hate, but there is 0 evidence of Wlad using PEDs.

Posted June 24, 2014 2:58 pm 


mike s

In ANY sanctioned fight both fighters have to adhere to the same drug testing program. And only NSAC lets people use what would be considered a banned substance anywhere else, that being testosterone replacement. This is just gamesmanship on Pulev’s part. I can’t wait for this bout

Posted June 24, 2014 2:52 pm

Pulev will end the Klitschko reign. He may also expose Wlad as a drug cheat. Curious times indeed. Pulev stops an exhausted Wlad in round 10. I am the greatest fight PROPHET ever born!!!!

true, no sport wants to be tainted by drug cheats, cycling had a cloud over it for years until its biggest star was finally caught, random tests should be done at any time, not just before a fight.

Posted June 24, 2014 2:42 pm

There has always been mandatory testing. That is why Wach, Toney, Holy and others have been caught. Wlad doesn’t have the huge head syndrome you see in PED users. Take a look at Briggs now and the earlier Briggs, now that is a grown melon. I know the skull is the only bone structure that continues to get larger as we age, but that melon is almost double.
