Airich's Positive Test Likely Won't Prevent Boytsov Bout

By Per Ake Persson

German-based heavyweight Konstantin Airich indeed tested positive for a forbidden substance following his May fight against Odlanier Solis in Texas, and there is an ongoing investigation into the matter but he is still not suspended - and even if he was professional boxing in 2012 still lacks a unified suspension system and he would still be allowed to fight outside of the ABC jurisdiction even if a suspension is supposed to be respected.

As it stands, Airich fights in Hamburg on October 12 against highly ranked Russian Denis Boytsov. On the same bill cruiserweight Rakhim Chakhkiev defends the WBC Baltic title against Argentinian champ Alejandro Emilio Valori and former WBC jr. lightweight champion Vitali Tajbert returns to action after a long layoff due to a hand injury.

I'm just happy to see Boytsov will be fighting someone who isn't a tomato can like Sheppard and Montiy.
