The strength and conditioning coach of Manny Pacquiao, Alex Ariza, is not concerned about the accusations of steroid use against the Filipino boxing champion.

Ariza has worked with Pacquiao for his last 8 fights in which Pacquiao held victories over Oscar de la Hoya, Miguel Cotto, Ricky Hatton, Joshua Clottey, Antonio Margarito, and Shane Mosley.

Manny Pacquiao has blown out everybody he’s fought in his last 8 fights with me. That’s how many different divisions? That’s 135, 140, 147, and 154,” Ariza said in a RingTV.com interview.

mosley-steroidsIn what may be a prelude to their meeting in court, Victor Conte and Shane Mosley traded accusations in connection with the boxer’s defamation suit.

Mosley had filed the suit in a New York state court against the founder of the California-based supplement company known as BALCO (Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative). This is Mosley’s move to refute Conte’s allegations that he watched the boxer injected himself with performance-enhancing drugs and that Mosley knew what he was taking.

Mosley admitted that he had used performance-enhancing drugs but he continually insists that he didn’t know then that what he was taking were anabolic steroids.

Conte’s lawyer filed a motion to dismiss Mosley’s suit and among the documents he filed was an affidavit that detailed the drugs and payments made by Mosley before he defeated Oscar De La Hoya in September 2003.

“I believe it is time for Shane Mosley to receive the consequences he deserves for lying about his use of performance enhancing drugs,” Conte said Tuesday in an e-mail to USA Today. “Other athletes associated with BALCO who have lied about their use of drugs have been banned from their sport, stripped of their records and medals and even spent time in jail.”

Meanwhile, Judd Burstein, Mosley’s lawyer, said Conte’s allegations “are completely false” and that he us sure that they will have a day in court. “I’m salivating to get Victor Conte under cross examination,” Burstein said.

  Shane Mosley could lose his victory over Oscar De La Hoya due to steroid use

mosley_hoya_steroidsIn light of Oscar De La Hoya’s devastating loss to Manny Pacquiao on Dec. 6, the Golden Boy may have some luster back in his career should he decide to sue Sugar Shane Mosley over the latter’s unanimous victory over him back in September 2003.

Mosley is now on the headlines due to his testimony before a grand jury that took place nearly three months after his win over De La Hoya. Mosley testified under oath that he used anabolic steroids and EPO in the lead-up to his fight against De La Hoya. His testimony was part of the BALCO file which was under protective order before a US federal judge recently released them in connection with the Barry Bonds doping case.

The Daily News did an interview with the Golden Boy’s managers prior to the De La Hoya-Pacquiao fight and it was apparent that they were considering action against Mosley’s tainted victory.

Excerpts from the Daily News report:

Oscar De La Hoya’s managers will sit down with him after his fight Saturday night in Las Vegas and discuss whether he should appeal Sugar Shane Mosley’s unanimous decision over him in 2003.

“I think once we find out what the facts are it’s going to be up to Oscar to decide what he wanted to do. I wasn’t going to bring this up with Oscar this week with him trying to concentrate on the fight,” Richard Schaefer, the CEO of Golden Boy Boxing, told the Daily News. Golden Boy promotes both De La Hoya and Mosley and Schaefer said he will also discuss the transcripts with Mosley and his lawyer.

One way to settle the issue, Schaefer said, is if Mosley is willing to fight De La Hoya in the event that Mosley wins his fight against Antonio Margarito in L.A. on Jan. 24.

“We could probably work something out like that, possibly for next September,” Schaefer said. “That may be the best way to settle it.”

On Wednesday, Schaefer asked the head of the Nevada State Athletic Commission if there were any grounds to overturn the decision.

Keith Kizer, the commission’s executive director, told Schaefer that to his knowledge, there wasn’t a basis to do so because the commission has to go by what the law said in 2003 when the match took place. At that time, there were no laws forbidding the usage of EPO in Nevada and the commission wasn’t given the authority to issue a “no-decision” in such a case until 2005.

As the alleged aggrieved party, however, De La Hoya has the option to file a request to have the decision overturned, Kizer said.

  WBC may disqualify Shane Mosley for steroid and EPO use

shane_mosley-steroidsAccording to the New York Daily News, boxer champ Shane Mosley is on the verge of being disqualified from the boxing world.

This developed as court transcripts revealed that prior to his fight with Oscar De La Hoya in 2003 Mosley had used anabolic steroids and EPO. Mosley won the title in said encounter. In a little under three months, Mosley confessed his doping activity before a grand jury.

The court transcripts were formerly held at protective order until they were recently released by US District Judge Susan Illston in connection with the Barry Bonds doping trial.

Because of Mosley’s apparent violation of the sport’s anti-doping policy, the World Boxing Council is taking steps to address the issue.

“It was a real surprise to read that Mosley has confessed that he did take those medicines, those drugs that are totally prohibited by the WBC,” said the Council’s president, Jose Sulaiman. “The WBC rules state that we must have a hearing. This is a matter of serious concern to us.”

“Thus far the WBC has seen only press reports, and must therefore investigate any available evidence and review it, in terms of the WBC rules and regulations’ anti-doping provisions,” said Robert Lenhardt, an attorney for the WBC.

WBC’s board of governors has the power to disqualify or fine a boxer even after the conclusion of a fight.

According to the WBC rules, no boxer “shall be under the influence of any drug during the contest that will in any manner affect their performance in the ring.”

Mosley’s next ring assignment is slated Jan. 24 at Staples Center in Los Angeles. He’s due to exchange blows with WBA welterweight title holder Antonio Margarito.

The Daily News had also reviewed the “doping calendars” seized at the BALCO raids in which Mosley’s doping activity was recorded. Below is its interpretation of the BALCO’s doping calendar and testimony.

The notations include the letters “L”, “C” and “E,” along with notations for when to take iron (2 iron), vitamin E (vit), folic acid (1 f) and B12 (1 B12). “L” stands for “liquid,” or “the clear,” which is the designer steroid THG. “C” stands for “the cream,” which is an epitestosterone/tesosterone substance. “E” stands for the blood booster EPO.

During the month of August, Mosley’s calendar says he took EPO eight times, injecting himself twice on each occasion on each side of his belly button.

At the bottom of the calendar the date of his fight with De La Hoya is noted – Sept. 13.

There are also notations at the top of the July calendar for the money Mosley paid Conte for his drugs. He paid the BALCO founder a total of $1850.

Here is the breakdown of Conte’s complicated math:

$1,650 = $900 (for EPO) + $600 (for “the clear and the cream”) + $150 (for blood tests)

$1,650 – $500 (paid in cash) = owes $1,150

$1,150 + $200 (Gateway Limo to airport) = $1,350 (paid by check)

In his grand jury transcript, Mosley admits to paying $500 in cash and $1350 by check.
