YEKATERINBURG , December 17. /TASS/. Russian heavyweight boxer Alexander Povetkin has beaten France’s Johann Duhaupas. The non-title 10 round fight held in the Russian Urals city of Yekaterinburg ended with Povetkin’s win by a sixth round knockout.
Earlier on Saturday, reports came ahead of Povetkin’s fight with Canada’s Bermane Stiverne for the interim WBC heavyweight title that the Russian boxer tested positive for a banned substance. His blood sample dated December 6 contained Ostarine. Stiverne bowed out of the fight and was replaced by French heavyweight boxer Johann Duhaupas.
Ostarine is a SARM substance, which athletes use during training. It builds up endurance, like anabolic steroids. The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) put SARM substances on its prohibited items list in 2008.
