Lucian Bute Still Waits For The Result of His B-Sample

By Luke Furman

Former world super middleweight champion Lucian Bute is still awaiting the results of the B-sample of his urine taken in Washington on April 30.

The analysis of the A-sample carried out in a laboratory in the U.S. capital and revealed the presence of ostarine, a product mimicking the effects of anabolic steroids. Bute is telling anyone who will listen that he has never used the product.

Bute's lawyer even went toLosAngeles to authenticate the second sample before it is opened by authorized technicians at a Californian laboratory to do the study. Since then it's been radio silence and this annoys Bute who remains in the dark while his athletic reputation and integrity is at stake.

"It's very frustrating, but what do you want me to do? My lawyer went to Los Angeles to lobby for the results of the second analysis to be revealed. Meanwhile, I can not do anything or say anything without jeopardizing my cause, "said Bute to Radio Canada.

Meanwhile, Bute continues to train in the gym of brothers Otis and Howard Grant in the West Island of Montreal. He trains without knowing when he can go back in the ring to deliver his next fight.

"I can not schedule anything, as long as I don't know the final result of the second analysis," said Bute.

The fight in April was a twelve round battle that saw a twelve round draw with WBC super middleweight world champion Badou Jack. If the second sample comes back positive, then the fight will become a no-contest and Bute  (32-3-1, 25 KOs) will suffer a suspension.
