Default WBC delays Clean Boxing program. Only a quarter of the fighters have registered.

When the WBC and VADA announced in May it would be working together to form a groundbreaking new drug-testing program to clean up the sport, it was rightfully met with blaring headlines and pats on the back.

Dubbed the “Clean Boxing Program,” the plan was to randomly test for blood and urine year-round of all titleholders, as well as the top 15 fighters of each weight-division in the WBC free of cost to the boxers to ensure matches are fought on level footing. Those who don’t comply with the program would be removed from the rankings.

Yet three months after the program was first publicized, officials haven’t exactly gotten the cooperation they would have hoped. As of Wednesday, only around a quarter of the 272 boxers required to enroll have signed up, forcing organizers to push back the launch date from Aug. 9 to Sept. 9 to give boxers extra time to register.

Dr. Margaret Goodman, president of the Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency (VADA) told ******.com in an email on Tuesday that she and WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman met and decided to push back the grace period to Sept. 9.

“This program really is unprecedented and it will take time for fighters and their reps to get used to it,” she said in an email of the enrollment process. “It’s not about punishment; it’s about supporting clean sport.”

Sulaiman plans to send letters to promoters alerting them of the situation and of the consequences involved for not signing up, she said. “If they have not submitted paperwork by 9/9 they WILL be dropped from the WBC rankings,” Dr. Goodman said.

Despite the minor setback, Dr. Goodman was still confident the program will be a model for others in the sport to follow. Well-known fighters such as Gennady Golovkin, Kell Brook, Deontay Wilder and even Lucas Browne, who recently tested positive for a banned substance, have already signed up, she said. And the hope is that once the WBC/VADA program starts, it will be the standard for other sanctioning bodies to follow and adopt similar measures, Dr. Goodman said.

Both have started VADA testing. Big props to Kovalev and Ward. I'm not sure if it's under the WBC program because the program is only for the top 15 rated WBC fighters in each weight class. I haven't looked at their LHW rankings.

Damn only 25%. For sure there are gonna be some cats getting dropped a month from now in the WBC rankings cuz for sure they won't get that 75% all signed up. Well assuming they don't push back the start date further. Definitely not a good sign to start this off doe.

If there actually were consequences, they wouldn't need to push it back - they would enforce said consequences.

But there are none.

Just another hot air hot take from the alphabet soup.

Removed from the rankings is the punishment. If you're a champ I guess you'll get stripped.

Do you think they would actually follow though?

I have my doubts.

Stripping the champion? Hell no! Dropping fighters from the rankings? Depends on who the fighter is. I think they'll be flexible with this program. It's a start and I'm hoping for the best.

Agreed on all counts.

Fingers crossed - boxing needs backbones.

My thoughts as well. Anxious to see how flexible they end up being. Hoping they surprise me & its not THAT flexible, but I'd bet against that being how things work out all day every day.

Whatever the case with this specific program its a step towards how things should be & will be an example of what works or don't work for future PED testing programs or with this one being improved upon.
