 +
In August 2002, federal agents began investigating BALCO (Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative), a California lab suspected of selling banned performance enhancing drugs to athletes.
 +
 
 +
The USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency) received an anonymous tip in June 2003 that an undetectable, designer steroid was being distributed by Victor Conte, founder of BALCO. The tipster sent the USADA a syringe filled with the steroid. The tipster was later identified as Trevor Graham, the former coach of track and field stars Tim Montgomery and Marion Jones.
 +
 
 +
BALCO offices were raided by agents of the Internal Revenue Service and a San Mateo County narcotics task force in September 2003. The following month, the USADA announced it had uncovered a doping conspiracy involving previously undetectable steroids, and a grand jury investigation into BALCO began. Dozens of high profile athletes were subpoenaed to testify during the investigation, including Shane Mosley. Their testimony was confidential, but it was eventually leaked.
 +
 
 +
In September 2007, SI.com reported that lead BALCO investigator Jeff Novitzky told an international anti-doping conference that Mosley used the BALCO designer steroids before his September 2003 fight against Oscar De La Hoya.
 +
 
 +
Mosley said his former strength and conditioning coach, Darryl Hudson, convinced him to visit BALCO, and he only agreed to visit the lab to obtain legal supplements. "I was already feeling good, but I think Darryl wanted to make a big impression, for me to go out there and be really explosive," Mosley said. "We went to San Francisco for one day and I talked to Victor Conte. I explained to him that I am already in great shape, but the right vitamins and supplements here and there might help."
 +
 
 +
Mosley said he gave Victor Conte a blood sample so he could figure out what supplements would be best for him. Mosley, however, said he told Conte and Hudson that he wanted to "make sure everything is OK, so let's call the Nevada [athletic] commission to make sure there are no problems. They called the commission, found out what was legal and what was illegal, and from there they did the program. ... And then, after I fought, I took my [drug test, which were clean] and I thought everything was alright. Everything to my knowledge was on the up and up."
 +
 
 +
Mosley said he paid Conte $1,500 with a personal check, which shows that he wasn't trying to hide anything. And then, for about four weeks late in his training camp, he used the program Conte prescribed for him, which he later learned included undetectable steroids "the cream" and "the clear," in addition to the blood-doping drug Erythropoietin, commonly known as EPO, a hormone that artificially increases red blood cell production.
 +
 
 +
"I didn't know anything about that stuff," Mosley said. "It was something given to me, pushed up on me. I'm a health freak-type of guy. ... When I heard they were investigating the guy [Conte], was like, 'Oh my God, what's going on here?' I feel used and abused. This guy is doing this crazy stuff. That's the only time I ever touched the thing."
 +
 
 +
Mosley said he doesn't even believe it helped him, citing the fact that so many people believed that De La Hoya deserved the decision in the fight. "If that stuff is supposed to help, it didn't do nothing," he said. "It hurt me. It was a close fight and I got the decision." Mosley said when he fought De La Hoya the first time, in June 2000, he hadn't used anything and won more easily. "So, to me, it really hurt me a little bit," Mosley said.
 +
 
 +
On December 3, 2008, [[Richard Schaefer]], the CEO of De La Hoya's promotional company, [[Golden Boy Promotions]], asked the executive director of the [[Nevada State Athletic Commission]], [[Keith Kizer]], if there were any grounds to overturn the decision from the second Mosley-De La Hoya fight, and Kizer told him the commission didn't have the right to overturn decisions because of the use of performance-enhancing drugs until 2005. 
 +
 
 +
Mosley sued Conte for $12 million in 2008, accusing him of lying when he repeatedly said Mosley knowingly took illegal performance-enhancing drugs. The case was dismissed in 2010. According to a document filed in New York State Supreme Court in Manhattan, the case was "voluntarily dismissed with prejudice and without costs, disbursements or attorney's fees to any party against another."

BALCO Scandal
