Shane: I’m a clean fighter

By Karl Freitag

During a conference call today, WBA welterweight champion Sugar Shane Mosley lashed out at a reporter who asked him to compare how he feels now compared to how he felt in 2003 when he allegedly took a performance enhancing substance. “That’s a stupid question that you’re asking me because I never really…I never did that stuff,” said Shane. “I was never on it the way like that. I’ve always been a clean fighter. Actually I feel good and I’ve been feeling good. I’ve been knocking out everybody since 2003 and before 2003. I don’t feel like I should be condemned for something that I never tested positive at all. I just told the truth of what happened because the truth was brought to me by the federal people that took me to court or that brought me up as a witness, that brought me in as a witness and the truth was revealed to me there. So, this man (Victor Conte/BALCO Labs) that I had seen one time in my whole entire life, at the deposition was the second time I’ve seen him, it’s ridiculous. It’s ridiculous that now the media wants to make me the ‘poster boy of steroids’ when I don’t even remember [taking] that stuff, so if you guys want to continue to think that or put that out there ‘so be it’ you know, you’ve got to hear the truth.”
