Antonio Tarver Denies Failing Drug Test Allegations
The former champion is currently at the center of some controversy pertaining to allegedly failing a drug test in the run up to Steve Cunningham fight
Five-time world champion Antonio “Magic Man” Tarver (31-6-1, 22 KOs) vehemently refutes the results of his failed New Jersey Boxing Commission drug test taken prior to his 12-round draw with two-time IBF champion Steve “USS” Cunningham this past August 14th in Newark.
A report that has emerged in recent days claims Tarver tested positive for synthetic testosterone. He categorically denies taking any banned substance before his fight with Cunningham.
“I have no idea how my urine sample tested positive because I didn’t take anything illegal,” Tarver said. “Either the test was contaminated, or mixed-up with another sample.
We believe in the process and I will fully comply. Further analysis will prove I’m 100-percent innocent because I’ve done nothing wrong.”
