TESTED

* The boxer’s election to be tested is random, and therefore a fighter may be eligible one or more times in the same period.

The WBC added: “The WBC must work on education and awareness to help all people involved in sport learn of the dangers of using performance-enhancing substances (PEDs), which eventually create significant health problems in the athletes who consume them.

“But also risk the rivals they may face. The webinar, which is available on all WBC and CBP websites, displays specific information to clarify the risks and dangers of using these substances.”

Davis is considered one of the best fighters on the planet and is one of the WBC Clean Boxing Program leaders.

A future shot at WBC ruler George Kambosos is on the cards.
