Klitschko is Firm on Testing Terms For Povetkin Bout

By Rick Reeno

Bernd Boente, the manager for WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko (60-3, 51KOs) has advised BoxingScene.com that his side will only agree to the use of NADA [Nationale Anti Doping Agentur], based in Germany, as the drug testing agency of choice for the upcoming fight with mandatory challenger Alexander Povetkin (26-0, 18KOs), scheduled for October 5th in Moscow, Russia.

Povetkin's side wanted to use RUSADA [Russian Anti-Doping Agency], which the Klitschko side rejected. Both NADA and RUSADA are affiliated with WADA [World Anti-Doping Agency].

Boente made it clear to BoxingScene that their position is very firm, and they are willing to walk away from the fight, and a $17 million dollar purse, if NADA is not accepted as the organization to handle the drug testing.

Russian promoter Vlad Hryunov, who won the WBA's purse bid with a massive $23 million dollar figure, told BoxingScene that he proposes a solution that would satisfy all of the involved parties.

Hryunov has no objection to NADA being the organization to take the actual blood and urine samples from Wladimir, but he proposes to have NADA, RUSADA and American-based VADA [Voluntary Anti-Doping Association] test the samples of both fighters.

If I were Wlad no way would I agree to let RUSADA analyze the sample. I see contamination and a false positive coming b/c it is crooked.
