Promoter Gary Shaw recently communicated his thoughts on a number of issues, including on the use of performance enhancing drugs in boxing.

Shaw recommended that all world title fights should be tested and said when asked about Manny Pacquiao, “I don’t know about Manny, but how do these guys bring their power from 108 and be faster and stronger…I’m not a doctor. I just know I can look at someone’s physique from one or three fights before and be suspicious…But I can’t challenge Manny because he’s been spectacular. Why would I accuse him of roids when I don’t know? There are some guys who are just freaks and maybe Manny is one of those guys.”

It was also recommended by Shaw that steroid testing should be brought into the place and sanctioning bodies should get behind their acts on such testing.
