Following high-profile cases involving heavyweights Alexander Povetkin and Lucas Browne, the World Boxing Council has reported another suspect drugs test this week.
Undefeated Cletus Seldin, a super-lightweight contender, has tested positive for Stanozolol, the WBC have reported.
In an official document sent to WBN, the World Boxing Clean Boxing Program stated: “The WBC has been notified by VADA that super lightweight contender Cletus Seldin unannounced test under the Clean Boxing Program has an ADVERSE FINDING for “Stanozolol Metabolites” as well as an ATYPICAL FINDING which requires additional testing.
“The WBC has begun to look into this specific case according to the Rules, Regulationss and Protocols of the CBP and will have additional information in the near future.
Previously, both Povetkin and Browne had been removed from the WBC ratings as the pair were on the verge of world title shots.
Should Seldin’s ‘B’ sample show a similar result, it is thought the New Yorker will face expulsion in the same vein.
