Amino 4500 row threatens Matthysse v Dallas bout

Lucas Mattysse has been accused of taking the supplement Amino 4500 prior to his bout with Mike Dallas by the interim WBC title challenger’s trainer Virgil Hunter.

Hunter told Showtime that he witnessed the Argentinian taking the substance, which is said to improve physical performance, as Matthysse gloved up in preparation for the main event at the Hard Rock Hotel in Las Vegas.

At this point (11:22pm PT/4:22am UK), it is not known whether Dallas and Hunter are willing to go ahead with the fight after their protest as officials backstage investigate the claims.
