John Donnelly is Banned For Two Years Over Doping

By Terence Dooley

The UKAD (UK Anti-Doping) has banned British super flyweight contender and former English champion at the weight, John Donnelly, until 26 November 2014.  ‘UK Anti-Doping has today confirmed that professional boxer John Donnelly has been suspended from all competition for two years following an anti-doping rule violation.  Mr Donnelly tested positive for benzoylecgonine, a metabolite of cocaine, following an in-competition test on 9 November 2012 and was provisionally suspended from all competition on 27 November 2012,’ explained the UKAD in a statement released earlier today.

The “In-competition” testing period begins ‘twelve hours before a competition and finishes at the end of any associated testing’, which means that the athlete should not have a prohibited substance in their system at this time and, if caught, faces a stiff two-year ban.  Donnelly, 13-3 (3), will now have to cope with a long spell on the side lines.  His positive test was taken the same night he lost in a single round to fellow Liverpudlian Paul Butler in a fight to contest the vacant British super flyweight title.  The 28-year-old had won the English belt in his previous fight, a 10-round decision win over Mike Robinson in March of last year, but was wiped out by a left hook to the body from Butler.

Sure, just like he said he'd less money then went back on his word and demanded 50/50. Just like Roach saying 'OST? No problem!' then going back on their word and started stupid worthless sh1t like 'I'm scared of needles'…

[QUOTE=MindBat;13112138]Take the test, Manny.[/QUOTE] You apparentally haven't been keeping up. Manny had already agreed to take the test. The new issue was the money.
