Mariusz Wach suspended for 12 months


By Przemek Garczarczyk

Thomas Putz, chairman of German Boxing Federation (BDB) released an official letter regarding sanctions against Mariusz Wach (27-1, 15 KO), who was caught using anabolic steroids in his championship fight against Wladimir Klitschko (59-3, 50 KO) in November of 2012. According to the letter, BDB gives Wach and his promotional team the option of a 12 month suspension (starting November 10, 2012) and 5,113 Euro ($6,800) fine donated to the Max Schmeling charitable foundation if they will accept findings of sample A, without requesting a test for sample B. Global Boxing Promotion, who represents the Polish fighter, previously stated, that they will not challenge findings of sample A. It’s unknown if major athletic commissions will follow Wach’s suspension in the United States.
