No one knows for sure, but in my personal opinion, I think Pacquiao has in the past, and most recently JMM has done it. The acne all of the back and shoulders was a dead giveaway.

Agree on both counts though less convinced about Pac (even though his weight rise and success are peculiar). I think Juan should be banned from boxing. Guy has been working with a known roid wizard, and roid acne, and becoming a Mr. Olympia at age 40 are all sure fire signs the guy is juicing.

People make too much of Pacquiao's weight gain forgetting that he gained 39 pounds over the course of 15 years. He did this in his twenties, not unheard of and certainly not something to cast doubt. It wasn't until cowardly Fooyd popped off accusations because he was afraid to fight hat the casual fan got on the bandwagon.

Consider former greats such as Ezzard Charles who gained over 35 pounds of muscle in 14 years gaining power along the way. Billy Conn gained nearly 50 pounds of muscle over 11 years. Henry Armstrong held three titles simultaneously and had to defend all three by going up and down in weight by 21 pounds between fights.

Wen you look at Pcquiao's record, who did he really KO in his rise to glory? Ricky Hatton, that's it. He won by TKO over Morales, a faded DeLaHoya, a very game Cotto and Margarito. Most of the damage he did and his TKO victories were a result of his speed and quickness more than one punch KO power.

Consider Bernard Hopkins whose KO percentage was higher than Manny's ten years and 17 fights ago when he had his last KO victory over a smaller DLH. This clown padded his record with nobodies during the 90's when all the best talent moved up to 168. He is a boring, dirty, racist fighter yet everyone kisses his ass because he is winning fights in his late 40's against more nobodies.

I have no doubt that Marquez is juicing. He gains almost 8 pounds of solid muscle in just seven months prior to the fourth Pacquiao fight. This at the age of 39 while doing intense cardio workouts. Acne on his chest, back and shoulders and punching power that has come out of nowhere. At that age your body needs more time to recover and make gains.

I think any fighter with memo or Alex ariza in their corner is probably on something, knowingly or not.

I imagine they ALL have had injuries that needed some type of supplements to help with recovery.

That's heavy stuff. Post the link..
