When Fischer met Tony Bosch, he "was wearing a lab coat," Fischer recalls. "He says, 'OK, I think we can make this work. Where do you want to be?'"

Fischer thought for a minute and answered truthfully. "Well, in a perfect world, I'd like a Stallone body."

Bosch grinned, Fischer remembers, and said, "We can get you there."

Soon the HCG started working. Fischer's weight began sliding off. During the next visit, Bosch gave him another shot and suggested weightlifting. "I worked out like a fucking animal," Fischer recalls. He claims he never bothered to ask about the injections' ingredients.

In 2010, Bosch opened a new clinic called Biokem, tucked into a building near the University of Miami campus. He agreed to keep Fischer on the drug regimen for about $300 per month.

Then, on March 2, 2011, Fischer was out biking when a Jaguar slammed into him. After knee surgery, Fischer says, he received $35,000 in insurance money.

Fischer had begun hanging around the clinic—which changed its name to Biogenesis in 2012—after receiving his latest prescriptions, which by then included testosterone creams and anabolic steroids.

"I was starting to get seriously jacked up," Fischer says. Soon he proposed the idea of marketing Biogenesis. After all, the place didn't even have a sign out front. "I said, 'Look, I'll even pay for some of the advertising myself. I've come into some money,'" Fischer remembers.

Bosch later called with a proposal: Invest $4,000 and be repaid plus 20 percent interest via weekly installments. He'd also make Fischer a partner and marketing director.

Fischer agreed. Last October, he began working at Biogenesis every day, organizing records and assembling a marketing plan. "I was doing everything for free," he says.

Then, after almost two years on the drug regimen, Fischer finally began seriously researching what he'd been taking. He wasn't too worried. After all, Bosch was a doctor, right?

One day a co-worker approached Fischer. He claimed Bosch's main drug source wasn't a licensed doctor but rather "just a goddamn glorified steroid dealer."

"That's the first moment I thought, Oh, shit. I'm in the drug trade," Fischer says.

It's also the moment he began planning his exit strategy. The problem was, Bosch quickly abandoned his weekly payment plan. Pressed about the matter, Bosch claimed the clinic's income had fallen recently by $30,000 per month "because of Cabrera." (Bosch did eventually make two $600 payments to Fischer.)

Fischer went home and researched the name. Then-Giants outfielder Melky Cabrera had been suspended 50 games beginning in August for failing a drug test. It was then that Fischer learned of Bosch's alleged links to slugger Manny Ramirez's case.

"That's when I started documenting shit," Fischer says. "I [said], 'Look, if this motherfucker doesn't pay me, there's going to be collateral damage."

Fischer began discreetly taking Biogenesis records home. Bosch wasn't around much, perhaps because he was distracted by money woes—including thousands of dollars in unpaid child support he owed two ex-wives.

One day, Fischer grabbed four composition notebooks from Bosch's desk. The Biogenesis owner's name was written on the front, and they were packed with hand-scrawled notes about clients, drug formulas, and payments.

Finally, he confronted Bosch, who had returned from a trip to Detroit. (According to Fischer, the trip took place during last year's Yankees-Tigers playoff series, when A-Rod was benched for his ineffectual hitting. Bosch had been called to the slugger's side, Fischer claims, to help him right his swing.)

"I said, 'Hey, how was the trip? Where's my money?'" Fischer recalls. "Bosch looked me straight in the face and said, 'I don't have it. You're not going to get it. I'm Tony Bosch. What the hell are you going to do about it?'"

The way Fischer tells it, the frantic phone call came January 26, the Saturday before New Times's story about Biogenesis was scheduled to land. Fischer had told only a few people he'd been speaking to a reporter, including a friend. Rumors were running wild. After New Timeshad called every player named in the records for comment that Friday, someone leaked details of the coming bombshell to the New York Daily News and the South Florida Sun-Sentinel.

The friend sounded panicked.

Here's how Fischer remembers the call: "Porter!" he hollered. "I need to come over to your place now!"

Fischer was rattled. He checked his .32 Beretta and armed the alarm on his front door. Then he gave his friend his home address. That would be the first of several mistakes he made in the manic months that followed. Fischer would soon find himself burned by his friends, by Major League Baseball, and finally by state investigators.

The first betrayal came from that friend, who showed up around midnight, panting nervously with a simple message: "[One of Bosch's associates] will kill both of us," he claimed, unless the story was softened.

Fischer began to panic. "What can I do?" he asked. "I just want this to blow over now."

"Let me see the notebooks," the friend allegedly said.

Fischer thought for a minute. Then he went to the closet, grabbed the four handwritten notebooks in which Tony Bosch had kept daily records, and handed them over. His friend quickly announced he could get them back to Bosch, Fischer says, no questions asked.

@alex325nyc bro its not false its ALL TRUE...that's coming from a first hand account of the situation.... there is A LOT more to the story, and let just say that the people involved were in fact not to be messed with.  Most of the story is true other than the amount of money exchanged and a bunch of other vital information left out and not disclosed..  This is coming from a first hand account and individual.  Bosch was an asshole and people other than the ball players knew exactly what they were getting in this "anti aging clinic", including women and body builders as well.  THEY ALL KNEW, word travels fast in this world, especially in Miami, Florida, and Coral Gables (where there is an abundance of money) .  And lets just say MLB and AROD tried scaring the wrong people..   At the end of the day the story is true and authorities knew as well.  I can tell you 150 million percent sure that everything is true and lets just say the wrong people were tried to be "intimidated" and involved.  Bosch was a jerk off that had the papers in case something like this happened as a "get out of jail free card" and unfortunately for Bosh's stupidity the papers fell in the wrong hands.  As I said everyone wiped there foot prints clean as well as their fingerprints.  They were not dealing with amateurs TRUST ME.  And as I said a lot more happened and a lot more cash was exchanged.  The wrong people were "intimidated" and MLB and A ROD made major mistakes or else all this could of been avoided if it weren't for 6,400 dollars that Bosh owed and A RIDS lies abd scheming.  This is coming from someone that knows first hand.  There are more names out there that will come out soon.  All of this could of been avoided if it weren't for Bosh's stupidity and A RODS lying and scheming.  But he 150% took juice and Bosh even administrated it  (because AROD was afraid of needles)  but there were other ways the steroids could be administered as well as sending A ROD over night packages before big games.  I can tell you other substances that were taken by him but it would give away who I am.  So Bosh you rat (because  he made a deal with MLB for co operation so they talk to the the justice system).   Lets face it sports are higher than then the justice system, you could of avoided it and A ROD you scheming bastard you should not of thought  you could could out trick or scheme "ordinary" people. just because you have 200 million dollars......by the way thank you for the Spanish food, even though it tasted like crap.  And oh yeah "Bud" Seligs and the higher ups in MLB's hands are as dirty as anyone else involved.  Remember "Bud"......"Ya this is Mr. Selig, but most everyone calls me Bud, like a friend." I quote.  So all this being said, think what you people want but MLB is as dirty as BOSH, A ROD and everyone involved.  They implied but not told people "to get the list by any means necessary and MLB is willing to give you what you need"

These "records" are all hand-written.  Yet Bud Lite (Selig) claims to have e-mails, texts, etc.  As Dr. Henry Lee would say:  Something wrong here.

I'm not surprised that authorities didn't rely much on this guy.  He sounds delusional.  All the "evidence" he claims to have gathered disappeared in bizarre ways.  And there are people following him everywhere, conspiring against him... He needs to cutback on the roids and get a real job.
