WBC Heavyweight Title Update

The WBC, through its Clean Boxing Program, is continuing to evaluate the positive anti-doping result of Alexander Povetkin for the banned substance Meldonium. As the WBC previously reported, it granted WBC Heavyweight World Champion Deontay Wilder a voluntary defense while continuing to thoroughly weigh and gauge all related scientific and medical factors.

As part of its anti-doping results management, the WBC formed and convened an emergency review committee. The last phase of the WBC’s anti-doping results management in the Povetkin case will be to afford Mr. Povetkin and his team the opportunity to present their position in the case and any factual, medical and/or scientific data they deem appropriate. Soon after that phase is completed, the WBC will be in the best position to make and announce its final ruling.
