Klitschko Will Not Accept Povetkin's Drug Test Demands

By Ruslan Chikov

The heavyweight champion of the world, Wladimir Klitschko, is not interested in Alexander Povetkin's request for both fighters to take part in random drug tests under the company WADA (World Anti-Doping Agency). Povetkin is Klitschko's official challenger under the International Boxing Federation (IBF).

Negotiations are taking place for the two of them to fight due to Wladimir not being able to retain an agreement with WBA heavyweight champion David Haye. Unlike the situation between Manny Pacquiao and Floyd Mayweather Jr., Klitschko has the full authority on the drug testing decision. The fight with Povetkin is ordered by the IBF and if he decides not to take the Klitschko fight, then Wladimir will move on to the next ranked contender in the IBF's top ten.

Older brother Vitali Klitschko believes this is a tactic by Povetkin's team to avoid the fight. He says Wladimir will not accept these drug testing terms.

"Wladimir has to fight Povetkin because of the IBF and he will take any tests under the rules of the World Boxing Federation. The tests are sent to an international sports laboratory in Cologne, which is one of the most modern in the world. If someone has any doubts, let them go send letters to [the lab] to investigate," Vitali was quoted telling Alexander Pavlov by Golzka.

[QUOTE=archermac X;8481184]Funny how everybody is lauding Floyd and Mosley for undergoing random USADA testing, to ensure that none among them is using PED's. Then comes[COLOR="Red"] the revelation that they were last tested 18 and 19 days, respectively, before the fight.[/COLOR]…
