VADA: Nonito Donaire Has Passed All Drug Tests

By Ryan Maquiñana

Unified junior featherweight champion Nonito Donaire, who has submitted to year-round random drug testing administered by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association, received confirmation from VADA Tuesday stating that all of his results so far have come up negative.

Excerpt from the correspondence:

“VADA has conducted tests which include, but are not limited to, the Anabolic Steroids panel, Carbon Isotope Ratio (CIR/IRMS) tests for the presence of exogenous testosterone, and analyses to determine erythropoietin (EPO) and human growth hormone (hGH) administration. Although further analyses may be conducted on previous or future specimens, I can confirm that all results to date are negative.”

In June, Donaire made history by becoming the first fighter to comply with such a program in light of the recent scandals that have rocked the sport.

He has since offered the same type of VADA random testing to Toshiaki Nishoka, who he fights Oct. 13 in Carson, Calif.  According to Donaire, Nishioka’s team has not yet decided whether they would agree to do it.
