British Olympic boxer Muhammad Ali has been banned for two years after testing positive for a banned steroid, the International Amateur Boxing Association (AIBA) said on Tuesday. The 21-year-old, who competed as a flyweight at the 2016 Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro, failed a dope test at a World Series Boxing match.
The rivalry involving two heavyweight champions, Anthony Joshua and Deontay Wilder may have been rekindled as both boxing champions are supporting different boxers ahead of Saturday's 'British Beef' clash between the unbeaten London cruiserweights. While Deontay Wilder is rooting for former sparring partner Isaac Chamberlain, Joshua is supporting Lawrence Okolie.
Deontay Wilder says he will get in the ring and go face to face with Anthony Joshua if he beats Joseph Parker in Cardiff, sky sports reports. According to the report, the WBC heavyweight world champion will be ringside as part of the Sky Sports Box Office team for the huge unification fight between the WBA 'super' and IBF holder, Joshua, and WBO champion Parker at the Principality Stadium, on March 31.
Craig Kennedy is confident that he has little to worry about if he gets a "dream opportunity" to take on Lawrence Okolie in Cardiff on the Anthony Joshua-Joseph Parker undercard, Sky Sports reports. The Cardiff cruiserweight, who has just one defeat in a 17-fight career, was a keen spectator when Okolie took on and convincingly beat bitter London rival Isaac Chamberlain at London's O2 on Saturday.
Anthony Joshua is undergoing rigorous anti-doping testing to prove as baseless “king of steroids” slur, according to the Sun. IBF and WBA heavyweight world champion spends around £30,000 per fight proving he is top of the world without doping. He was accused by his challenger, New Zealand’s Joseph Parker.
