MOSCOW, November 14. /TASS/. The doping test of Canadian boxer Bermane Stiverne yielded a positive result but the interim title fight with Russia’s Alexander Povetkin will be held, head of the World Boxing Council (WBC) Mauricio Sulaiman told TASS on Monday.
It was earlier reported that Stiverne’s doping test taken on 4 November 2016 contains the banned substance DMAA. However, since this is the first positive doping test for the 38-year-old Canadian, WBC decided not to impose immediate sanctions on him. The interim title fight will take place on December 17 in Russia’s Yekaterinburg.
Sulaiman said that WBC issued a warning for Stiverne but the fight with Povetkin will be held if doping violations will not occur again. He stressed that WBC is monitoring the situation and resolutely stands against doping.
