Team Maidana Want Anti-Doping Tests, Alexander Accepts

By Osman Rodriguez

BoxingScene.com has been advised that manager Sebastián Contursi, on behalf of Marcos Maidana (31-2, 28KOs), made a request to Tim Lueckenhoff, Executive Director of the Missouri Office of Athletics, to include post-fight anti-doping tests in the scheduled welterweight fight with Devon Alexander (22-1, 13KOs).

We've been advised that Alexander, and manager/trainer Kevin Cunningham, accepted Maidana's request immediately.

Alexander-Maidana takes place on February 25th at the Scottrade Center in St. Louis. HBO will televise.
