  • Comments Thread For: Spong: This Is Manipulative Attempt To Remove Me From Usyk Fight

    Tyrone Spong couldn't believe what he was reading. Even in the age of instant results being made available online, the unbeaten heavyweight was surprised to read from an outside party about his having tested positive for a banned substance before directly hearing about it through his own team.

    Why wasn’t this kept from Usyk? Why wasn’t a secret hearing held to clear Spong? Why is it even a question of whether or not he’ll fight?

    Come on Eddie Hearn, help him help like Whyte was helped?

      Because it wasn't found by a WADA signatory organisation, it was found by VADA who reports to both camps but can't ban anyone.

      A WADA signatory such as UKAD or USADA only reports to offender and interested third parties (i.e. not opposition camp) until the confidential process is complete, then it also bans the athlete if found to have doped.

        I agree. Usyk should find out after the fight by a boxingscene article.

          The size of Spong's head makes it seem like he's 280 lbs.

            That's not true when Morales failed USADA test both the commission and the opponent camp were informed about it and were given the option to go ahead or withdraw from the fight before a hearing took place

                The opponents camp were notified by whom, by USADA?

                Are you sure about that? Or was the commission and lead promoter (i.e. interested third parties) notified?

                "The NYSAC was notified, by phone on October 17, 2012, of Mr. Morales’ positive test. Notice was provided directly to NYSAC Chairwoman Melvina Lathan by USADA Legal Affairs Director Onye Ikwuakor and USADA Sports Testing and Resources Director Andrew Morrison. A representative from Golden Boy Promotions was also on the call when notification was provided to the NYSAC."

                You sure they didn't know about it because the information was leaked, just like in the Whyte case?
