Boxer Shane Mosley, who admitted last year he inadvertently took designer steroids before his 2003 championship fight, has sued BALCO founder Victor Conte for defamation. The suit, filed April 2, alleges that Mosley was introduced to Conte by his conditioning coach Darryl Hudson and told the regimen of products Conte offered, “the cream” and “the clear” would help his endurance. “Mosley was specifically told by Conte that there was nothing wrong with following Conte’s recommendations, and that all of the products recommended by Conte were entirely legal and appropriate,” states the suit by Kim Dincel of Long & Levit in San Francisco. Conte pleaded guilty in July 2005 to conspiracy to distribute steroids in the worst national drug scandal to hit major league sports. Conte spent four months in prison. Currently world class cyclist Tammy Thomas is on trial for lying to a grand jury and obstruction of justice stemming from her use of steroids from the Conte lab. Former Giants slugger Barry Bonds is awaiting a perjury trial in the grand jury investigation of Conte. In March 2008, Conte allegedly made false claims about Mosley’s use of steroids and BALCO products as part of a publicity campaign for his forthcoming book. The suit, Mosley v. Conte, C08-1777BZ, points to Conte’s interview with the New York Daily News. Mosley, 36, admitted in September 2007 he took steroids but said alleged he was misled by Conte. Mosley indicated he was introduced to Conte by his conditioning coach Darryl Hudson and that he believed Hudson had the list of substances approved by the Nevada State Athletic Commission before his 2003 fight with Oscar De La Hoya. Mosley won a 12-round unanimous decision against De La Hoya.
