The Ship Be Sinking

Mouth Almighty

Yep. Sure.

“I think it was an innocent mistake, one that the Nevada commission will have to deal with, as well as Chavez,” said Top Rank’s Carl Moretti. “I don’t think he knew diuretics were banned by the Nevada commission.”

Chavez Jr. suspended

It just amazes me that in 2009, people think they can still get away with that line. Diuretics have been banned since forever and people have been suspended for them before, off the top of my head Thiago Alves in Nevada in 2006, and for good reason- they’re a potentially dangerous weight-cutting aid, and they can also be used as a masking agent for steroids. Chavez getting busted doesn’t mean much; I probably won’t even remember it in a few months. But Carl Moretti coming up with the most intelligence-insulting way possible to excuse his fighter? That I’ll remember. Good publicity control there, guys.
