Antonio Tarver Denies Failing Drug Test Allegations

Tarver wants to become oldest heavyweight champion in history

Published On July 21, 2015 | By Adam | Boxing Interviews

In a fascinating interview with the former five-time world champion, Adam caught up with 46 year old heavyweight Antonio Tarver ahead of his fight with Steve Cunningham next month.


The discussion touched on a wide array of subjects, as Antonio continues his illustrious career in the sport ahead of a substantial challenge on August 14th in Newark, New Jersey when he takes on Cunningham.

Everything from how he thought the upcoming Tyson Fury vs Wladimir Klitschko heavyweight title fight would go – to how he would fare against both men himself, was covered.

He also spoke of a certain UK heavyweight called David Haye, and had some strong opinions on the man from London.

Antonio was full of praise for the UK’s leading heavyweight rising star Anthony Joshua, saying he believed him to be “the future of the heavyweight division”.

Between discussing the heavyweight landscape and other contenders including Steve Cunningham and more, Antonio’s motivation and passion still for the game really shone through in this chat.

It is clear Tarver is still a man on a mission and by his own words is “looking to make history” by becoming the oldest heavyweight champion ever, with an ultimate goal of facing and beating current heavyweight kingpin Wladimir Klitschko.

He said he is currently “writing the final chapter in his career”. Enjoy this compelling conversation, with a man still as driven and charismatic as ever:
