NYSAC's Statement on The Erik Morales Controversy
Mobile Version Share Click Here To Email   Search BoxingScene Database 

Former four division world champion Erik Morales is preparing for his rematch with WBC/WBA junior welterweight champion Danny Garcia, scheduled to take place tonight as the main event of the Showtime televised quadrupleheader at the Barclays Center in downtown Brooklyn.

Morales was tested three times by USADA [United States Anti-Doping Agency] - once at the start of the month and twice over the past two weeks. Garcia said that both the A and the B samples resulting from the October 3 drug test showed that Morales tested positive for clenbuterol. The fighters took another drug test on October 10 and yet another on Wednesday.

The two B samples arrived on Friday afternoon. Morales says the second test, like the first, showed a minor trace of clenbuterol. The third and final test showed no traces of the drug.

Morales claims that USADA backs his theory of testing positive due to contamination. When the positive result first surfaced, Morales claimed that he ate contaminated meat in Mexico. In the United States, the FDA forbids the use of clenbuteral on animals that are going to be consumed by humans. Those regulations are not in place in Mexico.

The New York State Athletic Commission has weighed in on the controversy, with a statement provided by Edison Alban, the press secretary.

“The New York Athletic Commission has taken into consideration the testing of Erick Morales conducted by USADA, an independent non-governmental organization contracted by Golden Boy Promotions to conduct testing on its boxers.  Based upon currently available information and the representations made by Mr. Morales that he unintentionally ingested contaminated food,  it is the Commission’s opinion that at this time there is inconclusive data to make a final determination regarding the suspension of Mr. Morales’ boxing license.  The Commission will continue investigating the allegations and will wait until official laboratory results are available before making a final decision."

I'm still not sold on Garcia he did beat Morales the first time but the way Khan was manhandling him before he got caught just shows you that his skills are limited and that "illegal" substance is BS, will it make Morales stronger and durable during the fight?....the show must go on.

Translation: "We will suspend him after the fight".
