Wach Denies He Used Anabolic Steroids For Klitschko

By Luke Furman

Polish heavyweight giant Mariusz Wach (27-1, 15KOs) says he never received any official communication that informed him that he tested positive for an anabolic steroid in connection to his November 10th fight with WBO/IBO/WBA/IBF champion Wlaidmir Klitschko. According to German paper Bild, Wach tested positive for an anabolic steroid in his “A” sample, and faces a one-year ban from Germany Boxing Federation if his "B" sample also tests positive.

Wach says the first time he was advised of the positive test was when his phone started ringing from the Polish media over the report that appeared in Bild. Wach took a severe beating in the fight and lost a twelve round unanimous decision.

"The first time that I heard about it [was when I started getting calls]. I did not take anything. This information has completely stiffened my feet. I heard about this a few hours ago. Suddenly the phone started ringing. I have not received any official communication [that I tested positive]. I'm totally shattered. I look forward to further developments in the case," Wach said.

Wach is waiting to receive official confirmation that he tested positive and then he'll determine how to proceed.

[QUOTE=HardSpar;12766414]It's a fukin joke guys, just one year ban if he's done it. These cheats that get caught need to be made an example of, if it were up to me I'd say ban him for life or at least…

I thought Wach had to be smoking weed like Chavez Jr. They both stood in the ring and allowed Klitschko and Martinez to beat them to death.
