Mayweather vs Mosley
Shane Mosley (pictured above) said the security guards for Floyd Mayweather "look like they're on steroids," adding that, "Maybe [Mayweather] dibbles and dabbles a little bit" during a recent podcast interview on ESPN Radio.
The 38-year-old Mosley (46-5, 39 knockouts), who will face the 33-year-old Mayweather (40-0, 25 KOs) on May 1 at the MGM Grand in Las Vegas, also asked, "Is he gay or something?" when addressing Mayweather's ongoing comments about Mosley's "jheri curl" hairstyle, his natty attire during press conferences, and, his "nose job" during the hype for their upcoming bout to be televised on HBO pay per view.
In 2003, Mosley admitted that he injected the steroids, "the cream," and, "the clear," which the WBA welterweight (147 pounds) champion said that he received from BALCO Founder, Victor Conte, through a relationship with his former strength trainer, Daryl Hudson. Mosley has insisted that he took the drugs without knowing that they were illegal steroids.
At Mayweather's insistence, both fighters are contractually bound to be randomly blood- and urine-tested for steroids by the United States Anti-Doping Agency leading up to their clash.
Mosley made his 90-second commentary as a result of the security guards' depiction on Episode II of HBO's 24/7 series, during which Mayweather's massively muscular protectors are shown lifting weights during their workout before reporting to the facility where Mayweather trains.
"What's weird to me is that everybody on his whole team, all of his security guards, they look like they're on steroids. They all look like they're on 'roids, and I don't understand it. I mean, why does he [Mayweather] keep saying, 'Steroids, steroids, steroids,'" said Mosley.
"And, you know, I notice that Floyd always shaves his head, all of the time. His head is shaved. His head is starting to look a little bigger," said Mosley.
"You know? Maybe, I mean, he has all of these people around him that's on steroids, maybe he dibbles and dabbles a little bit," said Mosley. "The guy that keeps talking. You know, the guys that usually talk about it all of the time, 'Oh, steroids, steroids, steroids, oh, oh.' They're usually the ones on it."
