David Haye Urges Other Countries To Get Tougher On Boxing Drug Cheats

Doping in boxing is more in the news than ever before unfortunately and one former heavyweight champion believes more should be done to stamp it out.

This week Canelo Alvarez learned that he would receive a six month suspension with no financial penalty following a failed drugs test before a proposed middleweight rematch with Gennady Golovkin.

Other examples of high-profile failed tests have permeated the boxing landscape in particular over the last year or so.

Organizations like the WBC have taken steps on their own to bring in random testing for their champions and top 15 rated fighters per division as a consequence.

David Haye ahead of his next bout on May 5th against Tony Bellew is undergoing random testing from UKAD (United Kingdom Anti Doping) and had this message for other jurisdictions around the world in boxing:

Haye will face Tony Bellew in a rematch at the 02 Arena on May 5th.

Bellew shocked the boxing world last year to upset the odds and stop Haye inside the distance who limped out of the fight with an Achilles tendon injury – while Bellew suffered an injury to his arm.
