Ali Adams Handed Two Year Boxing Ban For Doping

British heavyweight Ali Adams has been handed a two-year ban from the ring after testing positive for a banned substance.

Adams tested positive for stanozolol following his four-round defeat to former Olympic champion Audley Harrison on May 26.

Stanozolol is a synthetic anabolic steroid which former Canadian sprinter Ben Johnson tested positive for at the Seuol Olympics in 1988.

UK Anti-Doping revealed 30-year-old Adams produced a positive result as a targeted, intelligence-led test.

The Iraqi-born professional had blamed the presence of stanozolol in his system on medication he was using for a neck injury.

However, UK Anti-Doping said in a statement: "Stanozolol is banned at all times in sport, there is no reason for it to be found in an athlete's system."

Wait, who handed him the penalty, the sanctioning body or the BBBoC?

The penalty is too harsh in its depth. You want to stop the drug usage in the sport, not stop people from earning. A few months off of the juice and everything goes back to normal, any relapse can be detected, the game goes on. Boxing is a life and death sport, so keeping it clean is a duty.

Another British heavyweight bum testing positive & coincidentally isn't Ali a stablemate of Larry Olubamiwo?

[QUOTE=Light_Speed]Meanwhile, Peterson kept his belt and is about to get a big money fight.[/QUOTE] Exactly what I was thinking.

Good to see they take drug cheating seriously in the UK unlike America where they hand out slap on the wrist penaltys which serve as no real deterrent for there long list of known drug cheats.
