The provisional suspension of world heavyweight boxing champion Tyson Fury has been lifted by UK Anti-Doping.

Fury was charged over a urine sample taken in February 2015. This was after a period of nine months before he beat unified champion Wladimir Klitschko to claim the Ukraine great’s titles.

In a statement, the legal team of Fury said they would be suing UK Anti-Doping. The team remarked proceedings have been issued in the High Court on behalf of the World heavyweight champion and his cousin Hughie, who was also charged. The urine sample of Tyson was alleged to have contained traces of Nandrolone, a banned anabolic steroid. Tyson and his brother will have to face a hearing at the independent National Anti-Doping Panel (NADP).

Fury’s legal team said the result of tests on the samples in March and May 2015 were contradictory. Lawyer Lewis Power said in a statement the two boxers strenuously deny taking any performance enhancing drugs. It was further remarked leaks about these charges during the last five weeks have appeared in the press and both boxers have been the targets of continual abusive language on Twitter.

A statement from UKAD read UK Anti-Doping can confirm that both boxers were charged on 24 June 2016 with presence of a Prohibited Substance. It was further added that mandatory provisional suspensions were imposed pursuant to Article 7.9.1 of the UK Anti-Doping Rules. It was further said in the statement that the UK Anti-Doping Rules allow athletes to challenge the imposition of a Provisional Suspension and the NADP today lifted the athletes’ suspensions, pending full determination of the charges and added these charges will be heard at a hearing before the NADP in due course. The statement further reads that UK Anti-Doping will not comment further on the case until due legal process has been completed.

Peter Fury, the father of Hughie Fury and uncle of Tyson Fury, welcomed the news they are now free to fight.

Tyson Fury, the British professional boxer, defeated long-reigning world heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko to win the unified WBA (Super), IBF, WBO, IBO, The Ring magazine and lineal titles. This win earned him two awards for that year by The Ring: Fighter of the Year and Upset of the Year. The boxer was stripped of the IBF title after he was unable to grant a fight against their mandatory challenger, Vyacheslav Glazkov, as he agreed to a rematch with Klitschko.

Cousin of Irish former WBO middleweight champion Andy Lee, Tyson is also a distant relative of “self-styled King of the Gypsies” Bartley Gorman. He was named “Tyson” after by his father after the then-world heavyweight champion Mike Tyson. Tyson has represented both England and Ireland as an amateur and won the ABA championship in 2008 before turning professional later that year. The British boxer was nominated for the 2015 BBC Sports Personality of the Year shortlist but attracted significant criticism in the media after he made statement that were described by his critics as “sexist and homophobic.”

  Spanish Doping Doctor May Shame Football And Other Sports

Spanish Doping Doctor May Shame Football And Other Sports

The doctor at the center of the massive Operation Puerto blood doping trial has told the court that he would name the clients whose blood has been seized.

Eufemiano Fuentes, who is on trial for allegedly running a doping network in cycling and ran one of sport’s largest blood-doping rings, threatened to name all his former clients. The Spanish doctor made the offer through reporters during Spain’s Operation Puerto trial. Fuentes remarked that if the World Anti-Doping Agency and the Spanish drugs authorities consider that he can be useful and sought his help, he would be willing. He added that this would not be done for a reduced sentence but rather so there is mutual collaboration and also remarked they can have his client list if they want. Till now, only 54 cyclists, including Alberto Contador, Ivan Basso, Jan Ullrich, and Alejandro Valverde, have been personally implicated in the scandal.

Fuentes has admitted to having worked with people in football, tennis, boxing, and athletics and said cycling only comprised 30 percent of his work. This change of heart came as the world governing body of cycling urged the judge to show no leniency. The doctor faces up to two-and-a-half years in jail on public health charges and the five defendants on trial, including the Spanish doctor’s sister, Yolanda, will have one final opportunity to address the court on April 2 before sentencing commences. The defendants have been appearing in court since late January, almost seven years after police seized anabolic steroids, transfusion equipment and blood bags as part of an investigation code-named “Operation Puerto”.

The trial proceedings have attracted international scrutiny and attention as anti-doping authorities are hopeful that it will finally lead to evidence of wrongdoing by athletes in sports other than cycling. Previously, a request by WADA for access to the blood bags was repeatedly denied by the Spanish authorities and the World Anti-Doping Agency awaits the ruling of the judge on their latest petition. Since the current anti-doping legislation of Spain was not in force in 2006 when the police raids took place, the defendants are tried for violating public health regulations with the prosecutor asking for jail sentences of two years.

In the past, German cyclist Joerg Jaksche told the Operation Puerto trial that the treatment he received from the Spanish doctor was designed to beat doping controls and had nothing to do with genuine health issues. Italian rider Ivan Basso, a double Giro d’Italia champion, told the court that he had blood extracted on three occasions at the clinic of another doctor implicated in the case but never had any reinjected. Spanish cyclist Angel Vicioso told the judge he had only met with Eufemiano Fuentes for sporadic medical consultations. Former cyclist Marcos Serrano contradicted testimony from former team director Manolo Saiz, one of the five defendants along with Fuentes, by saying he never personally sought out medical treatment from the disgraced Spanish doctor. Two-time Tour de France winner Alberto Contador who was originally scheduled to appear as a witness was told he would not be required to appear in court after Manolo Saiz’s attorney renounced the witness statement he had requested from the cyclist.

Olympic-Winning Indian Boxer Likely To Face Doping Test

Indian boxer and super heavyweight pugilist Ram Singh, who is under detention in a multi-million dollar drug racket, has claimed that he and Olympics bronze medalist boxer Vijender Singh had tried drugs, but just for the sake of “adventure”.

Singh went on to admit that he and Vijender were in constant touch with drug smuggler Anoop Singh Kahlon, a former shot putter, who was arrested on March 7, police said. Ram Singh also claimed that they had taken a very small quantity of drugs, less than two grams each and were not habitual takers of drugs and just tried it for adventure and not to improve stamina or performance. He also remarked that he and Vijender Singh met drug dealer Anoop Singh Kahlon 3-4 times since December.

Twenty-six kilograms of heroin was recovered by police that was worth Rs. 130 crores in the international market, from the possession of Kahlon and he reportedly told the police that Vijender Singh and Ram Singh were his “clients”. Kahlon said boxer Vijender was in touch with some Mumbai celebrities, who were regulars in rave parties and took drugs while Ram Singh said we did not pay anything to Kahlon for drugs. Ram, a former National Championships medalist, later retracted from his statement and said he and Vijender Singh took drugs thinking it was food supplement.

It was further revealed that Ram Singh drove Vijender’s Ford Endeavor, registered in Vijender’s wife’s name, to Kahlon’s Zirakpur apartment, where the keys to the boxer’s SUV were found. Officials of the India’s National Institute of Sports (NIS), Patiala, have expelled Ram Singh from their hostel as he has confessed before the Punjab Police about taking drugs. It is believed that Vijender had allegedly promoted Ram Singh in various platforms by using his influence and the two were close friends and roommates at NIS for about six years. NIS director L S Ranawat said Ram Singh was the 51st member of the boxing camp and we had given him special permission on the recommendation of Vijender Singh.

Replying to the accusations, Vijender said he had nothing to do with drugs and is ready to join investigations at any point of time and also ready to undergo any kind of dope test. Vijender Singh has never failed a drug test earlier. A DSP rank officer with Haryana police, Vijender Singh, said he may have met Kahlon but don’t know him personally or directly and said his name is unnecessarily being dragged into this drug smuggling scandal. Vijender will be questioned either at the Haryana Police headquarters in Panchkula or the Punjab Police headquarters in Chandigarh, according to highly placed sources in the Punjab Police. He had contacted the Punjab Police through Haryana Police officials and agreed to be questioned. It is believed that he will be called for a dope test soon.

Vijender Singh Beniwal was coached by the Indian Boxing Coach Gurbaksh Singh Sandhu and won the bronze medal at the 2006 Asian Games in Doha after losing the semifinal bout against Kazakhstan’s Bakhtiyar Artayev. He defeated Carlos Góngora of Ecuador 9–4 at the 2008 Beijing Summer Olympics in the quarterfinals which guaranteed him a bronze medal that was the first ever Olympic medal for an Indian boxer. In 2009, the International Boxing Association (AIBA) announced him as the top-ranked boxer in its annual middleweight category list with 2800 points.

Damon allen accepts sanction for doping violation

Damon Allen, Jr. of Philadelphia, an athlete in the sport of boxing, has tested positive for a prohibited substance and accepted a suspension for his doping offense, according to a statement by the United States Anti-doping Agency (USADA).

The 19-year-old Allen, Jr. tested positive for Furosemide, a diuretic, as the result of an out-of-competition sample collected on July 19, 2011.

Under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the International Boxing Association (AIBA) anti-doping rules, both of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code and the World Anti-Doping Agency Prohibited List, diuretics are prohibited and listed as Specified Substances, and therefore the presence of those substances in an athlete’s sample can result in a reduced sanction.

A six-month period of ineligibility was accepted by Allen, Jr. that began on September 1, 2011, the day he accepted a provisional suspension. The boxing athlete is also disqualified from all results obtained on or subsequent to July 19, 2011, the day his urine sample was collected, including forfeiture of any medals, points and prizes as a result of the sanction.

Damon was the silver medalist at the 2010 National Golden Gloves (Little Rock, Ark.) and took the first place at the 2009 Junior National Golden Gloves (Mesquito, Nev.). The boxer won the first place at the 2008 & 2009 Ringside World Championships (Kansas City, Mo.); Placed second at the 2009 Junior Olympic Nationals (Denver, Colo.) and the Third place at the 2008 Junior Olympic Nationals (Marquette, Mich.). A runner-up in 2010 National Golden Gloves tournament and a semi-finalist at 2011 US championships, the Northern Michigan University student lost all results since then but his ban is retroactive to September 1, the day he accepted a provisional suspension. The boxer fought in the US Olympic Boxing Trials in Mobile, Alabama, but did not book a spot for the London Olympics in the 132-pound division.

Furosemide is a diuretic but is commonly used as a masking agent and high-profile fighters such as Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. and former Guzman rival, Ali Funeka, and former Jr. Featherweight and super featherweight champion, Joan Guzman, have served suspensions for the banned substance. Furosemide or Lasix is a loop diuretic that is used for treating congestive heart failure and edema and is even used for preventing Thoroughbred and Standardbred race horses from bleeding through the nose during races and can increase the risk of digoxin toxicity due to hypokalemia. The drug is also suggested for health complications including Nephrotic syndrome, in adjunct therapy for cerebral/pulmonary edema where rapid diuresis is required (IV injection), hepatic cirrhosis, renal impairment, and in the management of severe hypercalcemia in combination with adequate rehydration. It is a noncompetitive subtype-specific blocker of GABA-A receptors and is detectable in urine 36–72 hours following injection. Furosemide is injected either intramuscularly (IM) or intravenously (IV) and its use is prohibited by most equestrian organizations. The drug is included on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s banned drug list as it can be used allegedly as a masking agent for other drugs.

Usa boxing athlete accepts sanction

According to an announcement by the United States Anti-doping Agency (USADA), Michael Hunter of Las Vegas, Nev., an athlete in the sport of boxing, has tested positive for a prohibited substance. The anti-doping agency also remarked that Hunter has accepted a suspension for his doping offense.

The 23-year-old Hunter tested positive for tetrahydrocannabinol acid, a marijuana metabolite in the class of Cannabinoids, in a sample collected on August 5, 2011 at the U.S. Team Trials in Mobile, Alabama.

Under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the International Boxing Association (AIBA) Anti-Doping Rules, cannabinoids are prohibited. Both the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the AIBA have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code and the WADA Prohibited List. Cannabinoids are listed as Specified Substances and their presence in the sample of an athlete can result in a reduced sanction.

A three-month period of ineligibility was accepted by the boxer and it started on September 21, 2011, the day he accepted a provisional sanction. The period of ineligibility was suspended and reduced to time served, upon his successful completion of a USADA anti-doping educational program that he completed on October 7, 2011. The boxer has been disqualified from his competitive results achieved on August 5, 2011, the day he provided his sample, through and including the date the doping education program was completed, including forfeiture of any medals, points, and prizes as a result of the doping violation.

Born on July 10, 1988, Michael Hunter is an American heavyweight boxer who won the National Super Heavyweight championships in 2007 and 2009. Son of Mike “the Bounty” Hunter and coached by KC Ken Croom, he made it to the finals of the National Golden Gloves with only five bouts in 2006 at the age of 18. In 2007, he beat Lenroy Thompson and narrowly outpointed two-time winner Mike Wilson to win the US championships. Hunter dropped down to 201 lbs and won the Golden Gloves title in 2011 and managed to qualify for the London Olympics by winning his qualifier against Julio Castillo and Yamil Peralta. He has worked in the Tyrolean Mountains of Austria with the Klitschko brothers, Wladimir, the World Boxing Association and International Boxing Federation champion, and Vitali, who holds the World Boxing Council title and had to take a less direct route to qualifying for the London Games by this year winning the USA Boxing national championships and then a second tournament in Brazil.

The 201lb sensation from Sin City was on his way to compete against the best in the World in Baku, Azerbaijan for the AIBA Men’s World Championships before a failed drug test prompted him to “voluntarily withdrawal” from the US Olympic Team (aka United States representative for World Championship to Qualify for the Olympics). In August 2011, Michael Hunter stormed through the competition to win the Olympic trials but then was stripped of his victories after testing positive for the drug.  He got back in training and this year qualified for London at the last tournament, in Brazil after a three-month ban and wants to win a gold medal and become the heavyweight champion of the world.

Olympic Weightlifter Joshua Gilbert Banned

Olympic weightlifter Joshua Gilbert of Las Vegas, Nev., an athlete in the sport of weightlifting, accepted a suspension of three years from the United States Anti-Doping Agency (USADA) for his anti-doping rule violation.

The 19-year-old tested positive for Furosemide on March 2, 2012 at the National Championships, and refused to submit to doping control on March 20, 2012. Since Gilbert had not yet been notified of the results of the March 2nd test prior to his refusal to submit, under the rules both incidents are classified as one anti-doping rule violation. Both the incidents are prohibited under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the International Weightlifting Federation (“IWF”) Anti-Doping Policies, both of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code.

Gilbert was banned from “Average Broz’s Gymnasium” (Las Vegas, Nevada) after he tested positive for a banned substance.

Aggravating circumstances justify a period of ineligibility greater than the standard sanction, and as such the weightlifter received a three-year period of ineligibility for his anti-doping rule violation which began on April 5, 2012, the day he accepted a provisional suspension in accordance with the WADA Code.

Joshua Gilbert s also disqualified from all competitive results obtained on or subsequent to, March 2, 2012, the date his sample was collected, including forfeiture of any medals, points, and prizes. Gilbert, a promising Olympic lifter who trained under John Broz, tested positive for diuretic furosemide at the 2012 National Weightlifting Championships that was held in conjunction with the U.S. Olympic Trials as part of the Arnold Sports Festival in Columbus (Ohio) on March 2, 2012. Broz lived and trained with legendary Bulgarian superheavyweight Antonio Krastev, who recorded a world record snatch of 216 kilograms in 1987, during his career.

Furosemide is listed as a masking agent because of its potential to assist in elimination of anabolic steroids and other performance enhancing drugs from the body besides helping athletes to make weight in sports with multiple weight classes like weightlifting, boxing, and wrestling.

In another development, Patrick Mendes also from “Average Broz’s Gymnasium” tested positive for human growth hormone and was suspended for a period of two years. The 21-year-old tested positive for Human Growth Hormone (HGH) as the result of two separate samples collected on February 7, 2012, and February 27, 2012 as part of USADA’s Out of Competition Testing Program. The samples were tested at the WADA-accredited Sports Medicine Research & Testing Laboratory (SMRTL), located in Salt Lake City, Utah. HGH is prohibited under the USADA Protocol for Olympic and Paralympic Movement Testing and the International Weightlifting Federation (“IWF”) Anti-Doping Policies, both of which have adopted the World Anti-Doping Code. He accepted a two-year period of ineligibility, which began on March 19, 2012, the day he accepted a provisional suspension.

A U.S. Olympic hopeful in weightlifting, Mendes, tested positive for human growth hormone (HGH). Mendes, who graduated from Del Sol High in Las Vegas, accepted a two-year ban, which commenced on March 19. Mendes became the second U.S. athlete found using HGH after minor-league baseball player Mike Jacobs, who tested positive under the program instituted by Major League Baseball last summer.

Anavar (also known as AnVar, Oxandrolone, and Oxandrin) is one of the most popular body weight and fat reduction drugs among amateur and professional sportsmen.

This artificial anabolic steroid derivative of dihydrotestosterone is a 17-alpha alkylated steroid that is popular among athletes across the world as it has only a minimal impact on enzymes of the liver. Moreover to that, the efficiency improving medication is not associated with aromatization that means users of this anabolic steroid need not worry about estrogenic adverse reactions such as gynecomastia, bloating, greasy skin, and acne. If that was not all, Anavar use is not relevant to a negative influence on the body’s normal androgenic hormone or testosterone production (HPTA axis).

In inclusion to these advantages, use of Anavar is also related with preserved muscle mass, improved body structure, and decrease in excess bodyweight and fat while helping users gain trim, overall look. A small majority of athletes even use this steroid clinically to balance out protein catabolism that is caused by administration of corticosteroids in the long run. Some athletes even use Oxandrolone for finding significant relief from anemia and genetic angioedaema. If that was not all, AnVar is also used by athletes and others for reducing bone pain associated with osteoporosis and reduce muscle wasting associated with HIV/AIDS.

Professional athletes, especially those in cycling, swimming, boxing, and mixed martial arts, use this excellent cutting cycle steroid to catch up and even stand above the competition while losing extra fat and getting strong muscles and benefit from body strength and trim overall look at the same time. Anavar use in sports is mainly because of the fact that the steroid leads to extraordinary and nearly lasting gains in the perspective of muscle function, endurance, body strength, weight-loss, fat reduction, and efficiency without putting users in risk of side effects of steroids, efficiency improving drugs, and estrogens.

Anavar use in sports is also relevant with improving the levels of efficiency and sculpting overall look of the body without limiting on already-gained muscle definition and mass. The steroid is commonly stacked with Equipoise, Trenbolone, and testosterone compounds such as testosterone enanthate during a steroid cycle of six to eight weeks. It is beneficial to note that Anavar can be used by athletes suffering with specific health conditions after informing the concerned regulating authorities in advance about such use. However, a healthcare prescription is required to verify legitimateness of such use so that Anavar is not misused by athletes.

Promoter Gary Shaw recently communicated his thoughts on a number of issues, including on the use of performance enhancing drugs in boxing.

Shaw recommended that all world title fights should be tested and said when asked about Manny Pacquiao, “I don’t know about Manny, but how do these guys bring their power from 108 and be faster and stronger…I’m not a doctor. I just know I can look at someone’s physique from one or three fights before and be suspicious…But I can’t challenge Manny because he’s been spectacular. Why would I accuse him of roids when I don’t know? There are some guys who are just freaks and maybe Manny is one of those guys.”

It was also recommended by Shaw that steroid testing should be brought into the place and sanctioning bodies should get behind their acts on such testing.

School children from the Indian states of Punjab and Maharashtra have recently been found leading the list of doping offenders in the country.

Eleven children – from boxing, wrestling and weightlifting – tested positive for anabolic steroids and diuretics during the 57th National School Games as per the National Anti-Doping Agency.

“This has become a very serious matter. That 14 per cent of the samples have returned positive is a matter of shame for the schools and officials. It is much higher than the national average of 4 per cent,” NADA director general Rahul Bhatnagar told TOI.
