Lucian Bute Statement Regarding Positive Drug Test


Lucian Bute was informed of the results of the anti-doping test done after his World Boxing Council (WBC) world title fight against Badou Jack, April 30, in Washington, D.C.

 

As reported in a statement sent by the WBC, the Washington D.C. Boxing and Wrestling Commission informed them that Bute tested positive for Ostarine, in an A sample analysis, after the bout.

 

’’I am surprised and sorry about this. I don’t understand what led to this positive result, Bute said. "I have always passed every anti-doping test that I was asked to take since I won a world title. More recently for my fight against James DeGale, in Quebec City, last November, I was tested eight times from before my training camp until after my fight. I have never taken any illegal products. I have a complete trust in my team. There will be an analysis of the B sample and I am sure that this result will be negative.’’

 

’’GYM has always been strongly in favor of a strict anti-doping policy to keep the sport of boxing clean," GYM president Yvon Michel remarked. "We are really surprised by this first result and we now hope that the B sample proves that the first result was wrong. Until then, we support Lucian Bute.’’

 

There will be no further comments on this subject until the publication of Bute’s B sample result.
