Guillermo Jones Not Worried About Positive Drug Test

By Elisinio Castillo

WBA cruiserweight champion Guillermo "El Felino" Jones is not worried about the recent allegations that he took a performance enhancing drug for the May TKO victory over Denis Lebedev in Moscow, Russia. Last week it was reported that Jones (39-3-2, 31KOs) tested positive for Furosemide, according to testing results from RUSADA [Russian Anti Doping Agency]. Jones tooks the tests following his eleventh round TKO of Denis Lebedev at the Crocus City Hall in Moscow, Russia in May.

"I have never taken anything illegal. My promoter (Don King) told me that they will take care of this situation and not to worry. Actually I am calm, I am not concerned and we are doing well and as I said earlier. This whole doping thing is an excuse for the Russians. I cleanly won the fight aginst them," stated Jones.

[QUOTE=The Weebler II;13621229]"I have never taken anything illegal". Strictly speaking this statement may be true, but what about taking something which is banned?[/QUOTE] Obviously not, since he was busted for the same diuretic in the past.

[SIZE="3"]I actually believe him. Watch if Wlad doesn't get tested positive in Russia of all places, after he KO's Povetkin.[/SIZE]
