For someone on steroids Tarver didn’t fight very well.

He might want to reevaluate what he was taking. Up the dose a little bit, so he could have started the fight a little faster.¬† It shouldn’t take seven rounds to kick in.

If you are going to cheat go all out.

Cruiserweight contender Antonio Tarver tested positive for the anabolic steroid drostanolone in a pre-fight urine test conducted by the California State Athletic Commission for his June 2 fight with Lateef Kayode, Steve Feder, Kayode’s manager, told on Friday.

Tarver, the former light heavyweight world champion, fought Kayode to a 12-round draw at the Home Depot Center in Carson, Calif., in a the main event of a Showtime-televised quadrupleheader.

“That is correct. Mr. Tarver tested positive for a banned substance,” George Dodd, the executive officer of the California commission told

Dodd said the commission has suspended Tarver — who earned $1 million for the fight — and fined him $2,500
