    Absolutely it should, though I'd say the public health risks are a more compelling reason than the risk of a few boxers getting slapped wrists or looking bad. That said it's already illegal in Mexico so the political will needs to be there to enforce that ish, and given the money involved it's hard to imagine the government taking on the ranchers and meat industry.

    In the meantime though Mexican based fighters could always switch to a fish and vegetable diet... worked for the u17 Mexican soccer team and besides it's probably healthier anyway.

    How can they know whether the amounts taken where insufficient to have provided any benefit? The tests only show the urine concentration at the time of testing, they don't tell you how much was originally taken or eaten. To know how much was originally in the body you also need to know when it was administered / ingested and unless they've been watching these dudes like 24/7 the only way to know that is... umm... by asking 'em and taking their word for it..

    Rey Vargas and Julio Cesar Martinez are free to continue with their respective boxing careers. The pair of Mexico-based boxers tested positive for Clenbuterol, through testing recently conducted by the World Boxing Council Clean Boxing Program (WBC CBP). However, no action was taken against either athlete since the findings were trace elements of the banned substance deemed in the tolerable threshold due to the ongoing meat contamination epidemic in Mexico.
