But only by the WBC. I have no doubt that he'll appear in a different organisation's rankings soon...

Good news. Glad he is being punished though I'm sure he will carry on to fight in Russia.

Seems the IBF have banned him from their rankings for a year.

It's a shame the same rules don't apply to Stiverne huh?

Don't celebrate yet


The judge hasn't made a ruling

My bet is that the case gets thrown out

They haven't got a leg to stand on really

Exactly

Having a fraction (a fourteenth) of the 'legal' amount constitutes a ban? More like Xenophobia.
Let's not forget, they divided the B sample into two, sent one half to Cali, the other half to Switzerland.
One came out positive, the other was negative. No prizes for guessing which was which.

The fact that no TV network was picking up the Povetkin v Wilder fight in the first place says it all.
The fight was never going to happen. Look at Vargas for eg, busted with a much higher amount, yet still allowed to fight. Not deemed a serious threat to a US hype job come to mind....

Where's the hypocrisy by the WBC exactly?

The WBC have become the most hardline governing body with regards to doping, anyone wishing to be ranked by them has to enroll in VADA testing, what happened years ago has no relevance to what they are doing now.

WBC Super Featherweight champ Francisco Vargas failed a test but was still allowed to fight.

WBC really have become hardline right?

Povetkin has to be clean. Russians are known by their integrity and fair play.

Whereas the 'West' are squeaky clean? I'm a born n raised Brit but the double standards make us and the US a laughing stock.

I'm struggling to believe that somehow.

The Russians have been found to be guilty of state run doping on a mass level, the UK and US have not.

The Vargas situation doesn't look good by the WBC in fairness but it has to be remembered that this was Povetkins second doping offence, the first being one they couldn't act on.

Ha, another L for Hammersmith.

Lucien Bute was busted for doping by the WBC against Jack. He coughed up $50k and was allowed to box Alvarez for the WBC silver title. Do you even watch boxing?

Stiverne also failed a test before the povetkin fight but paid off the wbc
