Wilder, Arreola Test Clean in VADA Program, Says WBC

by Ronnie Nathanielsz

The Volunteer Anti Doping Association under the renowned Dr. Margaret Goodman has cleared heavyweight world boxing champion Deontay Wilder and challenger Chris Arreola following random drug tests.

The tests were conducted under the Clean Boxing Program of the World Boxing Council which is the only professional boxing organization that conducts random drug tests.

The World Boxing Council heavyweight world champion, American Deontay Wilder, defends his crown this Saturday, against Chris Arreola, in the main event at the Legacy Arena in Birmingham, Alabama, with the challenger painfully aware this is his third and last chance to win the title.


The fight is presented by DiBella Entertainment and TGB Promotions, and it will be broadcast via FOX Sports.

This will be the 4th defense of Wilder after he won the title defeating Bermane Stiverne in January 2015.

The champion says he`s extra motivated to fighting on home turf in Alabama, promising a truly memorable show.

The WBC reports that Arreola comes from drawing with Fred Kassi but due to his aggressiveness, strength, and a slice of luck, which he admits he didn`t deserve and must justify, he got an unexpected last chance.

If both their tests came back clean, I wonder why Alexander Povetkin couldn't do the same. I mean he deprived us boxing fans out of a good championship fight.

There is absolutely nothing good that comes from this VADA testing, or any advanced drug testing. Get this crap out of here. Fans can look forward to a lot of bad fights and canceled fighters. I still can't believe the…

And we got a fight, on the other hand we had a fight booked for May in Russia and that fight never happened. Due to one failing a drug test.
