Lucian Bute B Sample Comes Back Positive
Former super-middleweight champion Lucian Bute B sample comes back positive following his fight with Badou Jack for the WBC title back in April.
It has been reported by CBC in Canada that Bute said a supplement he took to help him sleep ahead of the fight contained the banned substance Ostarine.
It is understood that Bute plans on taking legal action against the producers of the supplement as Ostarine was not listed in the ingredients at the time.
Bute initially tested positive for the substance after his majority win decision over Badou Jack back on April 30th but the B sample has also now come back positive this week.
It is expected that the Canadian-Romanian fighter will address the media tomorrow on Friday August the 13th, 2016.
Lucian Bute (32-3-1-25KO) held the IBF super-middleweight championship of the world between 2007 and 2012 before losing the title to the UK’s Carl Froch:
