Povetkin’s Promoter Claims B-sample Is Clean, Threatens to Sue Wilder and Media

Alexander Povetkin’s promoter Andrey Ryabinsky has revealed he has evidence of new drug tests proving the former WBA heavyweight champion is a clean fighter.

The 36 year-old was recently forced to scrap a mandatory challenge against current WBC title holder Deontay Wilder due to an alleged positive test for meldonium, although Ryabinsky has always protested his fighter’s innocence.

Despite Wilder’s manager Jay Deas informing WBN that the fight was completely off, Ryabinsky is adamant Povetkin’s chance was only postponed and will hope to set a new date in light of these latest developments.

“Got new official tests on Povetkin. They’re clean now. Opponent (Wilder) and some journalists will be apologizing to us,” said Ryabinsky on Tuesday.

I like the feel of Dan Rafael getting sued (no pun intended).


-Radam G :

WOW! There are rats everywhere. if Povetkin is clean, there has been a conspiracy -- a word that crooks hate to be voiced -- and a lawsuit is a must. Or Team D-Wild and tsAH will bury this syet under the dust. Holla!


-deepwater2 :

Time for Wilder to get in the ring and punish the Russian. If he can. If he can't then expect the belt holder wilder to fight bums and jokes. Arreola is a bad joke. I never thought I would see Wilder in the ring against That Russian or Briggs and now I will wait and see. My gut says Wilder will use the tennis player's steroid excuse. Cleaning up the sport blah blah blah, but isn't Arreola on drug suspension? The circus.

Arreola tested 60x the normal level of fat. They are trying to determine if it was from tacos or cheeseburgers or some type of cocktail of both.

A "B" sample will show the same residue. Dude is straight-up clean. Team D-Wild was just making a scene. Dat sucka doesn't want this scrap. Holla!


-Bernie Campbell :

Too Hot politically for this fight to have a loser! The Russian Diaspora had a keen eye on this fight looking at boxing supremecy like Schmelling did 80 years before. It was better to have a mess like this than a loser to the political powers that be! Look for the Ward - Kovalov to suffer a similar fate!
