Chael Sonnen: Marquez ‘miraculously went through puberty a second time’ in Pacquiao fight


“Pacquiao got hit by a guy who miraculously went through puberty a second time at 39 years old. He got hit by a guy that showed up with more power at 39 than he had in any of the previous fights. He had a 6 pack that he never had before. There’s two tests that you have, Jim. You’ve got the pee test, but you’ve also got the visual test. When you take your robe off and you get in the ring that’s your first test. And to act as if all of us didn’t go, ‘Something’s going on there.’ No, I haven’t said that (he’s on PEDs), but I sure came close, didn’t I? I know that Freddy Roach did. I know Freddy Roach said, ‘If that body’s clean, I kiss your ass.’ But you gotta understand, all substances aren’t illegal. Did he take something? Sure, he did. Did he take something illegal? Well, according to the test, no.I just know you don’t go through puberty twice and I’ll leave it at that.”

Former UFC middleweight title challenger, Chael P Sonnen, took to Showtime’s Jim Rome show to promote his upcoming coaching sting on “The Ultimate Fighter”.

While on the show he discussed the recent Manny Pacquiao fight and his thoughts on Juan Manuel Marquez.
