The World Boxing Council has released Deontay Wilder and Tyson Fury’s drug test results, over two weeks after their blockbuster fight.
Blood and urine samples of both boxers were taken by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association and regulated by the WBC’s clean boxing programme before the WBC title fight between Fury and Wilder’s Feb 23 blockbuster fight and both boxers’ results have come clean.
The WBC released a statement, saying: “World Boxing Council heavyweight champion Tyson Fury, and Deontay Wilder, came out clean in the doping tests conducted by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association as part of the successful Clean Boxing Program.
“We want to thank both warriors and their respective teams for their willingness to sign up for the Clean Boxing Program and demonstrate that they are both exemplary athletes, who testify to their honesty and commitment to boxing.”
The result puts to bed any possible talk of use of stimulating drugs by both boxers.
Fury beat Wilder on Feb 23 in Las Vegas to clinch the WBC, Lineal and Ring magazine belts.
