Pro-Fighters Launch Scathing Attacks On Mexican Champion Following Failed Drugs Test
According to ESPN reporter Mike Coppinger, the WBC World Super Featherweight Champion, Oscar Valdez will be still be allowed to fight Robson Conceicao on September 10th. Following an initial drugs test, Valdez was shown to have trace amounts of Phentemine in both his A and B samples.
Phentermine is a performance enhancing banned substance with VADA.
However, a ruling handed down by the Pascua Yaqui Tribe Athletic Commission is allowing Valdez to enter the ring come fight-night. The argument presented by Valdez’s team—that the substance in question was discovered during what is deemed as out-of-competition by World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) code—along with other undisclosed factors was enough for the unbeaten boxer to receive clearance to fight next week.
Naturally, as you can imagine, the professional boxing world hasnt taken to kindly to the news. With many launching scathing attacks on the Mexican champion.
So if Valdez opponent gets badly knocked out or badly injured are you still gonna say it’s just a weight cut substance? The thing is banned for a reason!!!!!!!!!— Denzel Bentley (@2Sharp_d) September 3, 2021

Genuinely, what is the point of being a clean fighter - except the intrinsic reward of knowing you’re not a horrible scumbag.
If you’ve ever knowingly taken a PED suck your mudda.
