BECAUSE failed performance-enhancing drug tests are these days more common than lacklustre pay-per-view events, even the blissfully ignorant struggle to believe the world’s best boxers are clean.
It’s certainly a problem, the drug issue. However, equally problematic is the assumption that all boxers in the world are currently using PEDs to get ahead. Why? Because we might be wrong, that’s why.
What if there are boxers out there still doing it clean, boxers for whom integrity and morals still rank higher than dirty money and dirty success? What if we’re unfairly tarring the innocent and the guilty with the same brush?
