EXCLUSIVE: Marsellos Wilder drug test report reveals NO PED’s involved
World Boxing News has obtained a copy of the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation (TDLR) record for Marsellos Wilder.
Deontay’s brother was recently suspended for three months. He also saw his first round victory over Mark Sanchez on March 16 overturned to a no-decision.
At the request of WBN, Texas officials released the information regarding Wilder’s positive drug test given in the immediate aftermath.
It can be confirmed that the cruiserweight prospect WAS NOT found in breach of any performance-enhancing substances.
Wilder’s misdemeanor, which WBN has no intention of revealing, was a far more minor offense than a stimulant or steroid.
Marsellos blasted out Sanchez in devastating fashion at the AT & T Stadium in Arlington, only to see the win wiped from his C.V.
At the time, Wilder said: “Honor to my God giving em’ glory for his ways, his blessings. Victory first-round TKO.
“Going into this fight I want to thank you’ll. All who supported me in any type way.
“The energy was enormous. It was a boost toward the fire that burns for what I set out to do. Work in progress. Aim on the next… Ready to rumble.”
As things stand, a shock stoppage defeat to Williams Deets in January – which cost Wilder a UK debut slot on the Chris Eubank Jr. v James DeGale bill – remains his last official activity.
The 30 year-old began training again late last month after accompanying his elder sibling to New York for a world title fight against Dominic Breazeale.
Ringside to witness Deontay finish rival Breazeale in under a round, Marsellos was seen jumping on the ring apron after the win.
Breazeale has history with Marsellos. Unpleasantries were allegedly exchanged between the pair in a hotel lobby some time ago.
This was the beginning of a long feud between the brothers and Breazeale. The gripe was ultimately put to bed at the Barclays Center on May 18.
Bad blood in the build-up came to a head with an almighty blow from Deontay to settle the argument. Both sides have subsequently squashed the beef.
A return to action looms for Wilder in the coming months. The American aims to put the disappointment to Deets firmly behind him.
Whether a rematch with Deets will be sought out by Wilder remains to be seen.
