Peterson Treated For Low Testosterone In November, Says Vegas-Based Doctor!

RingTv.com's Lem Satterfield is reporting that Lamont Peterson was treated for a testosterone deficiency in November prior to the first Peterson-Khan contest.  The treatment was performed by Dr. John A. Thompson, a doctor based in Las Vegas.

"I administered...testosterone in the form of pellets which were inserted subcutaneously into his hip. These pellets deliver bioidentical testosterone derived from soy, not synthetic testosterone," wrote Thompson.
"When delivered via pellets, the hormone is time-released as the body needs it over a period of months and does not cause a sudden rise in testosterone levels. This would not produce a significant enhancement of athletic performance."

The following is the letter acquired by The Ring:

It wasn't like he was juicing exactly. But my question is if his testosterone levels are now lower how did he get flagged for high levels by the agency that was testing for performance enhancing drugs?

Signed,

You guys are Low are education , if you really looked up on it , you know that a bioidentical testosterone and steroids are two different things . The testosterone that Lamont was giving wasn't a enhancer at all . So all the negavtity need to stop. If you guy really knew Lamont as a person , you'll know it wasnt taken to cheat. Lamont was the one that ask for the drug test , common sense would tell you he wasn't aware at all

why don't we have a no holds barred boxing match between the two cheaters, Peterson and Antonio Margarito. Let em wrap their hands in whatever they want, inject themselves with whatever performance enhancing drugs they want, and just letem' go at it!!!

We'll call it "Marga-cheato vs Pe-testosterone"

And it could be held in DC where, obviously, anything goes because no rules are enforced!

Only low educated people are Lamont and his idiot team. They are the only ones who thought they could get away with it. Seriods are illegal in all sports. Ask Marion Jones, Barry Bonds, Rodger Clemens, A-Rod and now Lamont Peterson....
