Lights Out (not me) positive on nandrolone????
Allegedly, James "Lights Out" Toney have given a positive on nandrolone and may be stripped from the WBA heavyweight title. Too bad.
Newly crowned WBA heavyweight champion James ‘Lights Out’ Toney has reportedly failed a doping test for a banned substance – possibly the anabolic steroid nandrolone. According to New York newspaper Newsday, promoter Dan Goossen was informed on Monday by the New York State Athletic Commission that Toney had “tested positive for a banned substance that is not narcotic”.

Maybe he figured he might get caught.And that although he could get in trouble, they ain't gonna take the millions he made on the fight back.
Or perhaps he just tried to cut it as close as possible.Nandrolone is detectable in your blood for a LONG time after you stop taking it.But no one can say exactly how long.He maybe figured it'd by now and just cut it too close.Maybe he hoped he wouldn;t be tested.Not sure on the rules in that state, but in many states only a couple fighters a show are tested and the victims are determined randomly.

I've read 8 months to a year.
I found it funny that toney's supporters kept saying, look at his body, it doesn't look like one for someone on steroids. LOL
I've noticed that Deca half life in the system is usually 3 weeks to a month.Originally Posted by Sifu Rudy Abel

Well, he went from middleweight to heavyweight. One would suspect that at aleats at some point he used extra help.
I wonder if that may be the case with Roy Jones Jr. too.

Roy Jones, Jr. is a natural cruiserweight, maybe a big light heavyweight. He had to cut like mad to make middleweight. Part of the reason he fought so many tomato cans at light heavyweight was his lack of desire to keep cutting down so much. He probably could have made more money if he took more fights at lower weights but it was increasingly difficult to make weight as he got older.
Bulking up to heavy from light heavy/ cruiser (10-20 lbs) is no where near as tough as bulking up to heavy from middleweight (40lbs).
I was laughing when I saw Toney's shape for that fight and then heard the steroid story.Originally Posted by Canuckyokushin

My cousin gave me some tapes of him doing tkd. I learned from those tapes. When I beat up an Akido instructor, and made him take rest breaks, I used TKD. I learned Bjj from watching ufc and pride and then I copied them and wrestled my cousin for practice. I choked him out and he tapped.
