Wach's Promoter Explodes Over Steroid Allegations

By Luke Furman

A real storm is brewing within the camp of Polish heavyweight Mariusz Wach (27-1, 15 KOs). The team is very upset with a recent report that appeared in the popular German publication Bild, which alleged that Wach's pre-fight drug test, connected to last month's fight with Wladimir Klitschko (59-3, 50 KOs), showed traces of anabolic steroids.  Wach's "A" sample tested positive, and the German Boxing Federation is allowing him to appeal by having the "B" sample tested. If the "B" sample also comes up positive, Wach could face a potential one-year ban.

In an earlier article on BoxingScene.com, Wach stated that he was never informed of the positive result and was first made aware of the situation when the Polish press started calling him to discuss the Bild article.

In more stronger words, Wach's promoter, Mariusz Kolodziej of Global Boxing, exploded because neither he, or Wach, have received any official notification related to a failed drug test.

"What's happened is a complete lack of professionalism on the part of the Germans. I do not believe the German press reports. If this was true, [the German Boxing Federation] would first inform the party with the most interest [in the result], which is me, and the same goes for Mariusz Wach. I repeat, this is a complete lack of professionalism. Until we get the official documents relating to the case we are not going to comment on anything," said Kolodziej.

Contaminated supplement/food seems to be the go to excuse that will get you out of the public's eye. Bertoid, Morales, etc. In Morales' defense he's an old old man.
