These people are on the warpath to assuage their wounded ego by creating, manufacturing, and spreading lies. These are the sore losers and sour grapes suffering in the aftermath of a boxing match, particularly, the Nonito Donaire vs Fernando Montiel fight.
Before the fight, so very sure of themselves, they boast and plaster their boxing knowledge, what there is of it, and spread their predictions all over the Internet. They make bold predictions, thump their chest, and ridicule anyone who disagrees with their prediction. When their predictions go utterly and totally wrong, they look like fools and feel like morons. Rather than admit of being wrong, they try to save face by accusing the winning fighter of cheating by way of PEDs and/or steroids. Of course, before the fight, they don’t mention anything about steroid at all. It is only after their predictions falls on its face that they start to cry and whine about steroids.
In the hope to soften the ridicule for making amateurish and stupid predictions, they start throwing outlandish accusations of steroid usage. They throw accusatory statements in all directions, it’s their Hail Mary of desperation. Of course, they never provide any proof to support their accusatory statements. They desperately want to save face, they think that the louder and more insistence they are the more weight their accusation would carry, they hope.
To these sore losers and sour grapes, let me give you some advice. Do what I do, own up to your prediction and admit you were wrong. It is so much simpler and you won’t come out like a bigger fool than you already are. But the best way to save face is to not make any predictions at all. Some people are not meant to make predictions. I would own up if I were wrong in regards to my predictions. Of course, as long as I have been writing for this site, I have not been wrong in any of my predictions.
The batch of sour grapes that is targeting Nonito Donaire as possibly using illegal performance enhancing substances are grasping at anything to save themselves. They point out Donaire’s association with Victor Conte as their source for their accusation. Let me point out something. Before Donaire’s association with Victor Conte, Donaire knocked out the then undefeated Vic Darchinyan in July of 2007 with the same punch that knocked out Fernando Montiel, a devastating counter left hook to the face that had them stumbling and sleep walking in the ring. After Darchinyan, excluding the Montiel fight, Donaire won 7 fights and all were either by TKO or KO except one. The exception was a fight against Raphael Concepcion in August of 2009 that ended in a unanimous decision for Donaire.
The boxing landscape has changed. The reality is that Manny Pacquiao is an extraordinary talent; Donaire is on the verge of being there. New tenants have moved in and are living in the best house on the block. The old tenants will have to step up their game to remain competitive with their new neighbors. Crying and complaining will only leave them further behind. The sooner they accept the new realities of success, the better they will be. The half-ass effort and old work habit can no longer suffice. The Filipinos are use to hard work; they are outworking their competitors. There it is, the secret sauce; I just revealed the magic formula to being a great fighter, hard, hard work, and effort.
When a group of people lives within walking distance to the richest nation of the planet, there is going to be spillage of luxury that befell on to the neighbors. Luxury produces men of softness. It takes a great amount of pressure to produce a diamond. Nonito Donaire and Manny Pacquiao are from the same area, the pressures of life there is what produced these great boxers. Soft and cushy existence produces excuse-wielding sour grapes and losers.
