The boxing featherweight champion from South Africa, Matima Molefe, has been banned for a period of two years from the sport.

The boxer was banned over anabolic steroids, according to a statement by the Institute for Drug-Free Sport recently.

“Due to the number of adverse analytical findings that we have experienced in boxing over the last two to three years, we have increased our testing and anti-doping education to professional boxing,” Galant said.
