Brandon Rios is Suspended By CPBO Until April 24th

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

The China Professional Boxing Association (CPBO) chairman Zhang Tao has suspended the boxing license of Brandon “Bam Bam” Rios until April 24, 2014. based on a report by the Volunteer Anti Doping Agency, which stated that tests conducted following the WBO International title fight against “Fighter of the Decade” Manny Pacquiao showed that Rios “had performing enhancing drugs in his  system at the time of the contest.”
 
In a letter to Rios and Top Rank Promotions as well as the WBO and Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer which BoxingScene.com/Manila Standard obtained, the CPBO said Rios had copies of the results sent to him and that  the “A” Sample test “indicate that you had performing enhancing drugs in your system at the time of the contest: Urine specimen contains methylhexaneamine (also known as dimethylpentylamine or DMAA), an unauthorized stimulant. The report from VADA states that Methylhe xaneamine is a pharmacological substance classified as a stimulant. It is a prohibited substance under category S6 on VADA’s Prohibited List, and is also banned by the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) as a prohibited stimulant.”
 
The Chinese Professional Boxing Organization said “This conduct, if confirmed, violates your duty as a Licensed Participant in the November 24, 2013 Championship to conduct yourself in accordance with the highest standards of sportsmanship and violates the VADA provisions of your bout agreement.”
 
It stated that the China Professional Boxing Organization has determined that it will suspend your Boxing License for five (5) months from your contest, that is to April 24, 2014 unless you show cause why this should not be done.
 
Rios was given time to contest the findings as well as the suspension.
 
The CPBO told the former world lightweight champion “Please show cause in writing on or before 5:00 P.M. Eastern Time on Tuesday December 10, 2013 why this suspension should not be ordered. Your response to show cause to this Determination should be sent by email to the CPBO.”
 
It added that it was a final notice and indicated if Rios does not respond  by December 10, 2013 that “this will be a final order.”
 
WBO Asia Pacific vice president Leon Panoncillo told the Standard that “since the bout took place in China it is the CPBO decision as to what suspensions needs to be applied since they are the Sports Authority that was in charge.”

I do think ped's are Brandon's style. Ariza maybe another story - regardless Rios has peaked and his career is limited and on the down. If he's smart he goes a few more fights, saves his money and hopefully lives…

Suspensions are useless. Even if Rios wasn't caught or was clean what are the chances of Rios coming back to fight before April 24th?

[QUOTE=Kris Silver;14039707]Don't take drugs, or we'll ban you in a small portion of the places you could fight, for a length of time you wouldn't fight anyway. Great dis-incentive.[/QUOTE] Good post.
