British Heavyweight Boxer Banned

British heavyweight boxer Ali Adams has been banned for a period of two years after he tested positive for an anabolic steroid following his International Masters title defeat by 2000 Olympic champion Audley Harrison on 26 May 2012.

The Chelsea-based fighter, Adams, who was beaten in four rounds by Harrison, failed a drug test for stanozolol that was conducted immediately after the bout. Stanozolol is the same steroid for which Ben Johnson, the former Canadian sprinter, tested positive at the Seoul Olympics in 1988. Stanozolol, the synthetic anabolic steroid derived from the male sex hormone dihydrotestosterone, is commonly used by sportsmen to benefit from improved protein synthesis that further translates to muscle growth gains and leads to increases in muscle force production and aid muscle recovery following bouts of exercise. Stanozolol is categorized by WADA under category S1. Anabolic Agents; 1. Anabolic Androgenic Steroids (AAS); a. Exogenous AAS of the 2012 Prohibited List.

The 31-year-old boxer provided an In-Competition sample for doping control purposes at the International Masters Heavyweight Title competition in Brentwood, Essex that was submitted for analysis to the Drug Control Centre, Kings’ College, Harlow. It was reported on 1 June 2012 by the laboratory to the UK Anti-Doping that an adverse analytical finding in respect of 3-hydroxystanozolol, a metabolite of stanozolol, had been detected in the Sample. After this, a notice of charge was issued to Ali Adams on 13 June 2012 for a violation of ADR 2.1 and ADR 2.2 in relation to the adverse analytical finding for Stanozolol and Adams was also provisionally suspended with immediate effect. The boxer waived his right to B sample analysis on 26 June 2012 and admitted to the violations on 5 July 2012.

It was claimed by Adams that he received medical treatment and massage for an ongoing neck injury and the massage therapist injected him on two different occasions with an unknown substance that was communicated to him as an anti-inflammatory and these injections must have been the cause of the adverse analytical finding.

UK Anti-Doping announced a provisional suspension for Adams since 13 June 2012 and his period of ineligibility in accordance with ADR 10.9 commences on 13 June 2012 and will expire at midnight on 12 June 2014.

UK Anti-Doping Director of Legal Graham Arthur said stanozolol is banned at all times in sport and there is no reason for it to be found in the body of an athlete and the repercussions for using such substances are serious. Arthur added that this positive finding was the result of a targeted intelligence-led test and this case demonstrates UK Anti-Doping makes use of intelligence to inform our anti-doping programs in the United Kingdom.

Adams’ violation is the latest in a succession of positive drug tests in boxing this year after Larry Olubamiwo was suspended in June 2012 for four years after multiple anti-doping rule violations and taking 13 banned substances, including human growth hormone and anabolic steroids. Earlier this year, the world title re-match of Amir Khan with Lamont Peterson was called off 19 days before the contest after it was revealed that Peterson had taken a form of synthetic testosterone.

Lamont Peterson Cleared Of Doping – Cliff Notes

 

Lamont Peterson 1The International Boxing Federation (IBF) has allowed Lamont Peterson to keep the IBF title. The junior welterweight boxer failed a drug test after testing positive to anabolic steroids before his canceled bout with former titlist Amir Khan.

The IBF belt was awarded to Peterson even with the failed test as the levels of testosterone were found to be consistent with levels used for therapy purposes. Last year, Peterson admitted to making use of testosterone pellets before his first bout with Khan in December of 2011. The revelation was made by Jeff Fried, the attorney of Peterson, to Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer during a phone call. Kizer confirmed that two drug samples from Peterson from the same collection came back positive for synthetic testosterone.

The first one was in mid-April from the “A” sample taken after a press conference touting drug testing on March 19 in Los Angeles and the testing of the “B” sample again on May 3. According to Kizer, the “A” and “B” samples from the first test both registered positive and were analyzed by making the use of the sophisticated carbon isotope ratio (CIR) testing method. The junior welterweight boxer admitted to having a testosterone pellet surgically implanted into his hip on November 12 by Las Vegas-based Dr. John Thompson after being diagnosed with an abnormally testosterone level.

This would mean Peterson can resume his career and his stop to return will be against mandatory challenger Zab Judah, who was awarded the status by defeating Vernon Paris by TKO in an elimination bout this past March in New York. Winner of the Judah-Peterson match would set himself up for a possible bout with newly crowned WBA super, Ring and WBC junior welterweight title holder Danny Garcia.

Findings of the IBF were based on the findings reported by an independent physician with certifications in internal medicine and endocrinology. The physician determined that the levels of testosterone as noted in the VADA report are consistent with the therapeutic use of the hormone and not for the purpose of performance enhancement.

After the news of Peterson’s failed test, Amir Khan urged the authorities to ban Peterson for life and eradicate drugs cheats from boxing. Khan added that he has been “tested for drugs over one hundred times” in his Olympic and professional career.

Born on January 24, 1984, Lamont Peterson is an American professional boxer competing in the light welterweight division and is the current IBF Light Welterweight Champion. In 2003, Peterson became 141 lbs US champion and was the National Golden Gloves Lightweight Champion in 2011.

In the meanwhile, Peterson has quickly applied for a license in Nevada hoping that the Nevada State Athletic Commission may grant him a license despite his admission to using the banned substance. He claimed to have used synthetic testosterone (testosterone replacement therapy) for medical reasons but failed to disclose it ahead of time or even seek a medical exemption and Khan is furious and frustrated to see the IBF title going back to Peterson.

  Amir Khan Wants Drugs Cheat Banned For Life

Former two-time world champion, and former unified WBA (Super) and IBF Light Welterweight champion, Amir Iqbal Khan, recently said he want a lifetime ban for his steroid-using opponent Lamont Peterson.

Born on 8 December 1986, Amir Khan is a British professional boxer and the youngest British Olympic boxing medalist, winning silver at the 2004 Athens Olympics at the age of 17. Nicknamed “King Khan”, he is also one of the youngest British world champions ever, winning the WBA Light Welterweight title at age 22.

Khan said he does not mind Peterson getting an exile from boxing permanently even if that costs him the millions he would have made if the pair were to fight again.

Peterson, however, refused to give up belts after he failed to clear a drug test and said he never cheated in fight with Amir Khan. The American boxer said he deserved to keep his world titles as he was unaware that his treatment for abnormally low levels of testosterone was contrary to anti-doping rules. At the time of his fight with Amir Khan, Peterson had testosterone pellets inserted into his hip before he claimed a controversial split-decision win in December.

Khan says: ‘Anyone who has been done for drugs should be banned for life. Peterson failed a test and that should be his punishment.’ He branded Peterson “a cheat” and called for the American to be stripped of both titles and the December bout declared a ‘no-contest’.

After his bout was canceled because of Peterson’s positive test for synthetic testosterone, Khan started preparing for a world light-welterweight title fight with the rising Philadelphian star, Danny García, as the World Boxing Association light-welterweight champion on July 14. Khan was hoping to defend his title against Garcia and surely deserved the distinction of entering the ring as a world champion. But destiny had other plans for him as he was crushed by Garcia and the Bolton fighter was left dispirited and confused.

 Khan was already making plans to face WBC welterweight champion Floyd Mayweather after registering a win over Garcia; Khan was also planning to have a future bout with Timothy Bradley, who has previously rejected a fight with Khan in order for a big pay day against Manny Pacquiao.

Amir Khan has vehemently denied allegations by Roger Mayweather that Khan is guilty of taking steroids.

“The only reason Amir Khan has become the fighter he is, is because he’s got those steroids in his ass, too!” said Roger Mayweather, the trainer and uncle of superstar Floyd Mayweather Junior.

“I would question Roger Mayweather’s education abut steroids, first of all,” said Freddie Roach, Khan and Pac-Man’s trainer.

Bradley scared, claims Amir KhanAmir Khan, who recently added the IBF belt to his WBA title by overcoming Zab Judah in their unification fight in Las Vegas, claims Timothy Bradley is too scared to take him on in a showdown to become undisputed light-welterweight king.

Khan is keen on contesting one more bout in his current division before focusing on the welterweight category and a potential clash with Floyd Mayweather in 2012.

“He was just running scared. I really think the organisations should strip him of the two titles he has at the moment and maybe vacate them for the next opponent I face, because then at least that gives another fighter the option to fight for a world title,” Khan said.
