The world champion on Boxing under version WBA Alexander Povetkin has been suspended from fighting indefinitely by the world Boxing Council (WBC) due to the positive doping samples for Meldonium.
For this reason, Alexander was stripped of the title contender for the next fight for the title of world champion.
Andrey Ryabinsky, the representative Povetkin and head of the promotion company “World of Boxing”, has promised to sue the WBC for their decisions. He claims that the last time Alexander took the drug containing Meldonium in September 2015, three months before the substance is added to the list of performance enhancing drugs. The analysis of the boxer passed in April of this year. The results found 70 nanograms Meldonium that was sufficient for a decision on his removal.
