WBA/IBF/WBO/IBO heavyweight champion Wladimir Klitschko has never failed a drug test and always stays in terrific condition between fights. His camp views challenger Kubrat Pulev’s demands that Wlad undergo extra testing not required by the commission to be a clumsy ploy to get under Wlad’s skin.
“We go strictly with the rules and this whole issue is only brought up from Sauerland to discredit Wladimir’s reputation!” Klitschko’s manager Bernd Bönte told Fightnews.com. “The local commission BDB is in charge for the doping and they cooperate with NADA, the worldwide well reputed anti-doping agency. They caught (Mariusz) Wach, (Sam) Soliman, etc. The BDB is obligated to publicize positive samples, which is not the case with the Austrian Federation (which sanctions all Sauerland-promoted fights). Therefore where is the sense in a random test before the fight on their side?”
