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."Tags: British Boxing
