Mariusz Wach update

By Malte Müller-Michaelis

Polish heavyweight Mariusz Wach has formally requested the opening of the B sample of the anti-doping test taken from him at his world title fight against WBA / WBO / IBF / IBO champion Wladimir Klitschko on November 10th in Hamburg, Germany. Wach had admitted PED abuse in an interview published in Polish newspaper Gazeta Krakowska after testing positive for anabolic steroids. The German boxing commission (Bund Deutscher Berufsboxer – BDB) suspended “The Viking” for 12 months and imposed a fine of 5,113.- Euros. Although Wach’s team had initially decided not to challenge the A sample they now obviously changed their minds and asked for the B sample to be checked.

“Of course, it is their right to do so,” said BDB President Thomas Puetz according to German boxing website boxen-heute.de. “That’s why they take A and B samples. The only stipulation is that the delinquent has to carry the costs of the procedure. If the B sample shows the same result as the A sample the suspension and the fine will be confirmed.”
