Andre Berto Licensed By The California State Commission

(WINTER HAVEN, FLA.) – Andre Berto (Winter Haven, Fla.) has been licensed by the California State Athletic Commission after completing all necessary pre-licensing requirements.
 
“As someone who truly believes in clean sport, I have never used any type of performing enhancing drugs.  Everything I’ve achieved was the result of hard work and determination,” Berto said. “I am excited that this whole situation is behind me, and I look forward to returning to the ring soon with another exciting performance so stay tuned.”
 
Berto’s positive test in May revealed extremely small amounts of a banned substance, that were inconsistent with any performance-enhancing effect and were much more consistent with contamination of an otherwise acceptable food or supplement.

Berto tested positive prior to the June rematch with Victor Ortiz. He was later replaced by Josesito Lopez, who shocked the odds by breaking Ortiz's jaw and securing a TKO in nine.

[QUOTE=Evil_Meat;12442296]I understand that they said it was levels consistent with contamination, but really their entire defense is that nobody would take something like nandolone which is in ur sys for 12-18 months. Nandrolone is also a more advanced steroid, supplements…
