The WBC Clean Boxing Program has begun it´s random out of competition testing. VADA which is the agency responsible for administering the collection, testing and reporting, has sent the WBC the first findings from the tests performed during the month of October.
WBC Champion Badou Jack, Ishe Smith and Sean Porter were tested and all results were negative. There are some other fighters under the same process and results are pending.
There was one missed tests which has since been reported.
Patrick Nielsen from Denmark – Patrick missed the testing which is very unfortunate and this matter has been addressed with the fighter and his manager. A fine has been imposed on him to cover the expenses incurred in this process and a warning will be reflected in his CBP.
IT IS EXTREMELY IMPORTANT THAT BOXERS ENROLLED IN THE PROGRAM UNDERSTAND THE NEED TO REPORT ANY CHANGES OF THEIR LOCATION IF IT IS MORE THAN 1 HOUR AWAY FROM THE ADRESS REPORTED IN THE WHEREABOUTS FORM.
Any boxers enrolled in the CBP may be tested at any time and throughout the year. The process is random so a fighter who is not in his location must inform VADA in order to avoid a missed test scenario.
Any enrolled fighter taking any Prescribed prohibited substance due to illness or injury must be reported by his physician and it is advised to fill a TUE form . This means to report the substance which has been prescribed by a doctor to the fighter, and the length of time the treatment will last.
We are very proud of all who are participating in this historic process which is being a success only due to everybody working together for the benefit of our sport and most importantly our boxers .
