Mosley's 2003 trial transcript released

Boxing_g_shane_195_mediumIt's consistent with his public claims: he admits to using EPO before he fought Oscar de la Hoya in 2003, but he also denies knowing that it's what he was using.

"I am very relieved that this grand jury testimony has been released because it confirms that Shane has consistently recounted his dealings with [Victor] Conte from 2003 to today," Burstein said in a story posted on the paper's Web site Tuesday night.

Conte, the convicted steroids dealer who founded the Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative, has said he saw Mosley take EPO during a meeting in which Mosley was told the benefits and risks of performance-enhancing drugs and how to use them.

I've always wondered exactly how the notoriously fitness-conscious Mosley injected himself with a drug without knowing what it was and what exactly it was going to do for him, and what might be in it, but that's for Shane to deal with. It's his life, and even if I remain skeptical, it's not like I'm some righteous pundit about it. It happened; he's not the only fighter that did it, he's not the only fighter that will do it.

I'd say it's time to put this story in the past. Shane has been consistent with his statements all the way. I want to give him the benefit of the doubt.
