Quillin-Wright USADA Testing Called Off, Confusion Brews

By Gabriel Montoya

There is quite a bit of confusion brewing in the upcoming middleweight contest between Peter Quillin and Winky Wright, who agreed to do USADA (United States Anti-Doping Agency) testing for their June 2 match at the Home Depot Center in Carson, CA. The bout is part of a quadruple-header on Showtime.

According to Wright, USADA contracts were signed early last week. An exact date is forthcoming but somewhere around May 21 both sides had signed up for more testing. Peter Quillin discussed doing VADA testing on BoxingScene.com's audio show, The Boxing Lab, on Tuesday May 22. This writer tweeted a correction that night that it was in fact USADA testing he was doing.

On May 23, as told to Maxboxing.com’s Steve Kim by Peter Quillin, USADA collected both blood and urine samples to be tested for the Wright fight.  On Thursday, Wright gave blood and urine to USADA as well.

“They came to my house at 6 in the morning. They took urine, blood. Everything,” said Wright.

But suddenly, just two days approximately after Quillen’s sample was taken and a day after Wright’s sample was taken, USADA contacted Wright’s lawyer and announced they would not be doing testing after all. The reason given was that USADA did not have the proper time to educate the fighters on what to take and what not to.

"[Ramirez, Wright’s manager] and Damien told me. I don’t understand it. All I’m asking is ‘How do you take urine and take blood and then all of sudden you say you aren’t going to test it?’ Then they tried to make up an excuse and say they wanted to teach us. They ain’t nothing to teach. They took blood, they told us we would take a test and either come up positive or negative. That’s it. What are we doing this for? Are you going to tell me not to take something I don’t need to be taking? That’s cool. All I want to know is we are playing on the same field.”

Wright, wondering what was going on, decided to at least get the samples taken tested. This morning, his lawyer informed him that according to USADA, the samples have all been destroyed.

“They told us that weren’t going to do [testing] two days ago,” said Wright. “So my lawyer called today and asked for it to be tested and they told him today they threw it out.” 

It is unclear at press time what the protocol would be in this situation and why USADA, after getting signed contracts and going so far as to take samples, suddenly decided, two days later, to cease testing.

This USADA doesn't seem to be interested in straightening up their acts.

I thought Floyd 3 positive tests were rumors. Now I'm starting to believe USADA maybe shady.
