Evander Holyfield, John Rocker pulled into steroid scandal

In the current issue of Sports Illustrated, there's a very unsettling look into the investigation of an online steroid-distribution network that has implicated several pro athletes, including Evander Holyfield and John Rocker.

In Holyfield's case, a patient named "Evan Fields" received steroids from a clinic in Columbus. On the patient file was a sticky note with a phone number. When the magazine called the number, Holyfield answered the phone.

Holyfield, one of the all-time great heavyweights, has emphatically denied using HGH (the undetectable human growth hormone that has become the steroid du jour of professional athletes), and says he has launched his own investigation. He says he suspects he knows who ordered it and will make a public statement as soon as he's sure.
