Saunders-Andrade Update

After Billy Joe Saunders (26-0, 12 KOs) tested positive for the banned substance Oxilofrine (a powerful stimulant from the amphetamine family) his WBO middleweight world title fight with Demetrius Andrade (25-0, 16 KOs) has been in jeopardy. Since the news broke last week, more test samples have been collected from both boxers by VADA (Voluntary Anti-Doping Association). Victor Conte, an outspoken anti-doping advocate, provides his opinion on what may come next in this saga of the defamed WBO world champion.

“Bottom line is this,” said Conte, “we’re just a few days away from the hearing, and boxing fans will get the opportunity to find out if this going to be a historic decision in the best interest of boxing, which means that they (Massachusetts State Athletic Commission) will uphold this positive drug test and rule in favor of Andrade.
