Jean Pascal claims WBC Clean Boxing forms were sent last month

WBN 12/10/2016

Former world champion Jean Pascal has informed WBN his forms for the WBC Clean Boxing Program were sent last month.

In what could be a clerical error, Pascal’s name was posted on a 25-strong list by the WBC late on Tuesday alongside big names such as David Haye, Felix Verdejo, Yuriorkis Gamboa and Amir Khan.

The latter, Khan has since sent in his submission but those named and Pascal did not appear on the revised October rankings.

WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman explained how fighters who failed to register in time for the VADA random testing can still be reinstated in the ratings.

“Within 15 days of publication of the monthly ratings, any boxer entering the top 15 must directly or through his management or promoter, through an authorized representative of the WBC’s Clean Boxing Program (CBP) must fulfil all mandatory requirements to enter the CBP. The boxer must enroll in the program, or he shall be removed from the ratings and be unavailable to fight for any WBC-affiliated title until such time as he properly enroll.

“The WBC is proud of its champions and challengers who have taken a step forward in this historic process to keep our sport clean and most importantly to look out for the health of our athletes and the integrity and honorability of our sport.”
