Amir Khan: A lot of Drug Cheats in Boxing Right Now

By Nick Parkinson, courtesy of The Daily Star

AMIR KHAN is calling for more random drug testing in boxing to KO drug cheats.

The sport is reeling from a series of high-profile boxers busted for using banned substances.

Khan was left without a fight at short notice in May when American Lamont Peterson tested positive for synthetic testosterone.

Peterson has now been stripped of the WBA light-welterweight title he won off Khan with a disputed points decision in December.

Khan, 25, has been twice randomly tested ahead of Saturday’s WBA-WBC light-welterweight title clash with American Danny Garcia in Las Vegas.

And the Bolton star wishes boxing officials worldwide would increase tests to crack down on cheats.

He said: “I’ve had two random drug tests in camp and expect I will have one just before thefight. I don’t mind doing them and think it should happen for all fights.

“There’s a lot of drug cheats in boxing right now.

“People pointed the finger at me because I was in Manny Pacquiao’s camp and did so well so quickly after the Breidis Prescott defeat. People started saying I was on something but I have proved I’m a clean fighter.”

Khan is confident of winning back his old WBA belt he lost to Peterson and the WBC belt from Garcia, and he added: “We don’t usually see two young guys facing each other at this stage of their careers – but this is exactly the sort of fight boxing needs.”

Absolutely no reasoning with the tards! I love Manny, but his fans use illogic and fantasy to make senseless arguments. Floyd started a great movement, and Amir is talking a lot of sense here.
