Deontay Wilder, Chris Arreola Take Part in VADA Testing

BIRMINGHAM, AL.- - Heavyweight world champion Deontay "The Bronze Bomber" Wilder and two-time title challenger Chris "The Nightmare" Arreola have both enrolled with the world-renowned Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency ("VADA") to conduct the anti-doping program leading up to their Saturday, July 16 showdown that headlines Premier Boxing Champions on FOX & FOX Deportes from Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama. Televised coverage begins at 8 p.m. ET/5 p.m. PT.
 
"Despite the short lead time to Wilder vs. Arreola, I am happy to report that VADA is in place as the anti-doping agency in accordance with the WBC Clean Boxing Program," said Lou DiBella, President of DiBella Entertainment. "VADA is a preeminent and reliable service and its relationship with the WBC evidences a commitment to a cleaner sport."

This marks the second straight training camp in which Wilder has enrolled with VADA.  VADA testing, in accordance with the WBC Clean Boxing Program, was in place for Wilder's scheduled May 21 defense versus Alexander Povetkin, which was canceled following Povetkin's positive test for Meldonium.  In addition, Wilder has submitted paperwork to VADA and the WBC to participate in year-round anti-doping testing that is expected to commence later this summer.
 
Tickets for the event, which is promoted by DiBella Entertainment in association with TGB Promotions and Bruno Event Team, start at only $20 and are on sale now. For tickets please visit www.alabamatitlefight.com and www.ticketmaster.com.

Arreola thought an aspirin tablet was something you wrote on. Chris is not big on brains or physical fitness or training. Chris Arreola even thinks Manual Labor is a mexican.
