James Toney - Baxter Humby - Fight Show II - DFC

 

 

James Toney: "Do I Look Like Mr. Universe?"

VAN NUYS, Calif.  James Toney has fought many fights in his career, but the one apparently facing him

now is one that disturbs and revolts him like no other opponent could ever do. "Being accused of taking

performance enhancing substances is an insult to me. I don't do drugs period," Toney stated.

 

"I've never used any illegal substances to prepare myself for a fight."

 

Toney's body doesn't reflect a fighter taking mass muscle substances, nor would anyone in their right mind

be taking any banned substances, while knowingly and willingly giving urine samples. Toney's weight loss

was substantial from the day the fight was announced to the event, totally inconsistent with the signs of an

athlete using substances to add muscle mass.

 

"Toney received medical treatment for recovery from his biceps and triceps surgery last year. His doctor has

stated that the combination of medications used to control the inflammation and tissue growth caused the

positive test result," stated Dan Goossen, Toney's promoter. "This is further supported, since the body, in

combination with the medications, naturally create the form of substance ("Nandrolone") reflected in the test

results."

 

Goossen further stated, "It would be unjust for the sport to reprimand a fighter who was under a doctor's care

and direction many months before in healing a career threatening injury."
