Erik Morales fails random drug test

Ring legend Erik Morales has allegedly tested positive for an undisclosed banned substance according to multiple reports. Golden Boy CEO Richard Schaefer confirmed “irregularities” in Morales’ “A sample” to si.com but said that Saturday’s Garcia-Morales fight is still on. “Morales is a legendary fighter,” Schaefer told SI. “And really, nobody deserves a rush to judgement. You are innocent until proven guilty.” The likely scenario is the fight goes on and the analysis from the “B sample” will come back next week. The random drug testing was conducted by the U.S. Anti-Doping Agency.
