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.

Nigerian-born British heavyweight boxer, Larry Olubamiwo, has been suspended for four years, after he admitted to taking 13 banned substances. The 33-year-old tested positive to EPO after his bout against Sam Sexton in January.

UK Anti-Doping chief executive Andy Parkinson said, The list of substances Mr Olubamiwo admits to taking is both alarming and disappointing.

‘However, he is now banned for a period of four years thanks to information which informed our testing programme.

‘This reinforces the fact that testing in the UK is targeted and intelligence-led, and that law enforcement has an invaluable role to play in the fight against doping.’

British Boxing Board of Control general secretary Robert Smith added: ‘While this case is extremely sad for the boxing community as a whole, it demonstrates that cheats cannot hide and that doping will not be tolerated.’

Olubamiwo said he is far from the only professional boxer doping; the 34-year-old Olubamiwo has been given a really stiff penalty for making use of a blood boosting chemical, EPO, or his bout against Sam Sexton.

All of Olubamiwo’s titles and results from January 1, 2006, have been forfeited after he admitted to taking over a dozen performance enhancing drugs such as anabolic steroids and human growth hormone.
