Billy Joe Saunders to sue over cancelled Demetrius Andrade fight

Billy Joe Saunders to sue over cancelled Demetrius Andrade fight

Billy Joe Saunders current reign of being the WBO world middleweight world champion is on the edge of being no more.

"Boo Boo" Andrade (25-0 16KOs) must reset his radar from training for the tricky southpaw Saunders to the big-hitting African, and Kautondokwa has inspiration close to home in his camp for his first World title fight.

Kautondokwa's stable-mate Julius Indongo landed a World title clash at late notice and starched Eduard Troyanovsky inside a round in Russian Federation to win the IBF Super-Lightweight crown to crash into the elite, going on to face Terence Crawford for all the titles at 140lbs - and #2-rated WBO Middleweight Kautondokwa believes he can make the same impact at 160lbs.

Oxilofrine is on VADA's list of banned substances 365 days per year, yet only against WADA and UK Anti-Doping regulations on the day of a fight.

Regardless, failing VADA's test will cost Saunders' side a package of $2.3 million for facing Andrade. The Voluntary Ant-Doping Agency (VADA) is an independent, intermediary contractor that doesn't perform testing or any protocol of testing.

When asked why Saunders didn't proceed with an appeal, Valcarcel said, "I don't want to make any comments or give any opinions".

Sreesanth feels that Dipika is sending Khan sisters to Kaalkothari and is trying to save herself from the danger zone. In another exercise to pick up the weak contestants of the house, Bigg Boss announced the task of 5-minute charge.

This is not some technical legal argument.

The promoter insists it was "not a failed test" because the MSAC, which oversees licencing in Boston, did not follow WADA's rules.

Unlike the British Boxing Board of Control (BBB of C), the MSAC is a State appointed governing body and therefore the decision will be appealed and challenged in the Superior Court at the earliest opportunity. Further the MSAC refused to properly consider submissions from Billy-Joe's representative despite him being present at the hearing.

Saunders, who was due to fight Andrade in Boston on 20 October, returned an adverse finding for stimulant oxilofrine.

The statement, which can be read below, added that Valcarel will be going to the WBO Executive Committee to talk about a possible six-month suspension for Saunders. Billy-Joe, along with all other championship-level fighters is regularly and randomly tested by UKAD and WADA as a matter of course as the official affiliate of the British Boxing Board of Control.

The 160lb fighter failed a Voluntary Anti-Doping Assocation drug test - something that has put his immediate future completely up in the air. And so was not prohibited for the goal of the application of the WADA list and therefore the application of the MSAC rules to Billy-Joe.
