BALCO case exposes boxing champion Mosley

Video by FRANCE 24

Latest update : 2008-12-26

Former boxing champion Shane Mosley has been named by the boss of BALCO laboratories in a doping scandal that started in the early 2000s. This case already knocked down top US athlete Marion Jones.

AFP - Victor Conte says boxer Shane Mosley would arrive by limousine for visits to his office where Conte provided him with steroids, USA Today newspaper reported Wednesday.
  
Conte, whose BALCO laboratories sparked stunning scandals in athletics and baseball, alleges in court papers filed Tuesday that he charged Mosley 900 dollars for blood-boosting drug EPO and 600 dollars for the steroids known as "the cream" and "the clear."
  
Conte says he also billed Mosley 200 dollars for the limousine Mosley used to get around in. He also charged him 150 dollars for blood work before Mosley's 2003 title fight against Oscar De La Hoya.
  
Conte says Mosley paid him 500 dollars in cash and 1,350 dollars by personal check.
  
Conte is trying to have a defamation suit filed by Mosley against him dismissed. The suit claims Conte told newspapers he watched Mosley inject himself with endurance-boosting EPO and that the boxer knew what he was taking.
