Amir Khan and WBC Junior Welterweight champion Danny Garcia who will fight at the Mandalay Bay in Las Vegas, NV on July 14th will participate in Olympic style random drug testing leading up to their bout.
The testing will be administered by USADA (United States Anti Doping Agency) who has been the agency that has tested Floyd Mayweather Jr for his last 3 fights.
Amir Khan’s scheduled rematch with Lamont Peterson in May was scrapped after Peterson tested positive for synthetic testosterone. VADA (Voluntary Anti Drug Association) was the agency used for their testing.
