MOSCOW, December 21. /TASS/. The entire team of Russian boxer Alexander Povetkin, who is accused of doping violations, will take a polygraph test this week, his promoter Andrei Ryabinsky said Tuesday.

"The entire team of Povetkin will undergo a polygraph test this week," said Ryabinsky, the head of the World of Boxing company.

On Saturday, December 17, Povetkin beat 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.

Alexander Povetkin was also to meet Canada’s Bermane Stiverne for the interim WBC heavyweight title but the fight was canceled after Povetkin’s probe A proved to be positive of containing Ostarine. The probe is dated December 6.

The World Boxing Council said that a probe into Povetkin’s case is ongoing and he can be disqualified.

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.
