Mike Jones, unbeaten welterweight contender:
“I want a clean sport. That’s first. Because when you go into that ring, you know, you’re messing with a man’s life. When guys are taking steroids or testosterone or HGH or whatever the synthetic stuff is that they’re taking, it gives them a big upper hand. That’s where I stand on it.
“You know, it’s not like we’re playing basketball. We’re fighting. So, I most definitely would push for the Olympic style drug testing. Now, I think that everybody sees what Floyd Mayweather was talking about. Even at the cost of a pay day, it’s definitely worth it 100 percent.
“If a guy is there fighting dirty, that’s bad for the sport. You could end up with a tragedy on your part when you’re in that ring. In fact, I asked for it when I heard about all of this but it was too late for my fight with Randall Bailey once I heard about the Lamont Peterson and the Andre Berto situations. I asked if I could get a drug test for the Randall Bailey fight. I’m more than willing because I know that I’m clean.
“I’m a clean fighter, so anything that you want to test me for, I’m game. All that I’m taking is fruits and vegetables. so come on and test me. I don’t need no testosterone, no steroids, no nothing. I’m just going in there and I’m banging.”
