Amir Khan Accuses Floyd Mayweather Jr. of Using Steroids in De La Hoya Fight

The loose-lipped uncle of boxer Floyd Mayweather Jr. is making accusations once again. Roger Mayweather, who trains his nephew Floyd, told Las Vegas Boxing Examiner Chris Robinson that the only reason Amir Khan has become successful is because he’s on stuff just like Manny Pacquiao. The Pacquiao accusations are nothing new (Manny has actually sued him over his remarks), but the Khan ones are.

Khan responded to Roger’s accusations by defending himself. “I’ve consistently proved that I am a clean fighter. This is nonsense. I’ve been tested repeatedly in my career, before and after fights, at home and my base in Los Angeles.

“Don’t forget that I came through the Olympics (in 2004) where testing is very thorough. I’ve never refused the test, even though I could have done so when I received an unannounced knock on the door a month after my last fight against Paul McCloskey.”

Khan then took things a step further, turning the tables on the Mayweather camp. Khan accused Floyd of using something to prepare for his fight with Oscar De La Hoya.

“It’s not for me to say but quite a few people over here wondered if Floyd was on something when he fought Oscar De La Hoya because he suddenly looked so much bigger.”

Whether Khan truly believes that is in doubt, but we do know one thing: it’s no fun being on the other end of accusations. Mayweather’s team should learn that so they understand the implications of their words before running their mouths.

Back to Roger’s accusation, there is one difference between Manny Pacquiao and Amir Khan that must be pointed out. To the best of our knowledge, Khan has never shied away from drug tests the way Pacman has.

    Well you know in the HOOD, when a person is selling Drugs, they ALWAYS point out the OTHER Drug Dealers…. Or accuse other people of selling Drugs when they see them coming up or doing well….

    Pointing out that the Mayweather Camp does this often….

    Amir Khan is trying to be politically correct by saying, “It’s not for me to say but quite a few people over here wondered if Floyd was on something when he fought Oscar De La Hoya because he suddenly looked so much bigger.” Come on Amir, say it like it is, that on top of the Xylo injections to his brittle hands he’s also into something/STEROIDS. Yes he looks bigger during that match, he sure was!

    Hey Larry, Pac has not shied away from any drug testings that is sanctioned by the boxing governing body where he fights…the only thing he detest is the insistence of “Chicken” to do an Olympic style one…which is not required by the Nevada State Athletic Commission during the negotiations. But to quote Freddy Roach….right now Manny is agreeing to any test that KFC is demanding, so that a fight between them will happen, so the ball is on Floyd’s court with all his “whims”, let see what color is his belly.

    Not true Tony. Pacquiao and his camp still have cut off dates. Why won’t they allow drug testing anytime, anywhere? What’s there to hide?

    You guys are just full of it! What just because Void Floyd Mayweather Jr demands for Olympic Style test all of a sudden Manny Pacquiao have to go through it? Pathetic! What about if Manny Pacquiao demands for Void Floyd Mayweather Jr to eat Balut does that mean Void Floyd Mayweather have to? Yeah, yeah, yeah, you guys will say what does that got to do with it right? So does the Olympic-Style testing has nothing to do with Professional Boxing PERIOD. IT BELONG TO THE OLYMPIC BOXINGONLY!

    Behind Pacman reason why he settled on cut-off dates 14 days prior to the fights because of his experience during Morales fights that blood drawn few hours before their fight make him weak. When you talked OSDT it means random. no cut of dates. no two boxers know what will be the exact time he will be tested. Now this is the arguments on Pacquiao side..what if the USADA took Mayweather blood 14 days before the fight while Pacquiao be tested 8 hours before their fight..Top rank is right they should be aware the impartiality of the Commission
