Berto's Failed Test: New Details; Good News For Andre

By Gabriel Montoya

Last Thursday, it was revealed on BoxingScene.com that Andre Berto failed one of his random drug tests that were administered by VADA [Voluntary Anti Drug Association]. Berto's A and B samples were confirmed to have had traces of nandrolone.

Berto is preparing for a welterweight rematch with Victor Ortiz on June 23rd at Staples Center in Los Angeles California. Both fighters had agreed to take part in a random drug testing protocol.

Sources have informed me that analysis of  Berto's positive tests results for nandrosterone (a metabolic byproduct of nandrolone) revealed "ultra-trace amounts of Nandrolone in the low parts per trillion range and consistent with contamination not intent."

In other words, the amount in his system is so minute [very little] that it is highly unlikely that he intentionally ingested nandrolone but was rather contaminated by food or a supplement.

This is excellent news for Team Berto, essentially backing up the theory explained in my article "Andre Berto Tests Positive for The Molecule of the Month: Nandrolone."

Does this mean Berto/Ortiz II could have been saved?

BoxingScene first reported on Sunday afternoon that Josesito Lopez had accepted the opportunity to face Ortiz.

More details to come as the story breaks.

I remember Berto's defenders saying that there is no way he could've taken it, because it stays in your system for 18 months, and he wouldn't be that stupid. With that in mind I assume he'll test positive again for the next year or so, right? Am also curious if Berto's team have said what they t...

[QUOTE=Eaner0919]I agree with everything except the last part regardless of the amount found the fact still lies that he has an illegal substance in his body, on the banned list of substances with VADA and CSAC if CSAC were allow Berto to fight then it would fly against their own drug polic...

[quote=Leohappy]is berto's intent really that important? he failed the test. testing rules are rules put in by professionals who know what they are doing. what happens now and how his career goes on is dependent on presentation of facts to commission/s. berto may be cleared in due time, but until...

[quote=reeflegend]I gotta give it to Ortiz though he's not coming out saying "this is my life in his hands" "I always knew" like another ass clow we all love[/quote] he actually did today at the press conference now believing Berto juiced for their first fight so now what say you?
