Questions now raised over Green-Tarver result

By Brett Bonetti

Following the news that IBO Cruiserweight Champion, Antonio “Magic Man” Tarver tested positive for the Anabolic Steroid Drostanolone following his split decision draw with Lateef Kayode on June 2, questions are now being asked if Tarver was “juiced” for his previous fight with Australian, Danny “The Green Machine” Green in Sydney Australia in July 2011. Green went into that fight as a warm favorite to win and retain his IBO cruiserweight title, however Tarver shocked Green and the fans after he won the fight when Green’s corner was forced to throw in the towel following round 9.

Green had stated after that loss that he had never been really hurt before that fight and has today questioned the legitimacy of the American’s victory over him in their fight in Sydney. Following the revelation that Tarver tested positive Green said “I’m shocked by the news, but it does make you think.”

Green also queried at how Tarver got down to the cruiserweight limit and stayed very strong for their bout after looking significantly heavier when they both toured Australia just eight weeks beforehand to promote their world title fight. (more…)

Shaw comments on Tarver situation

Promoter Gary Shaw is concerned about the damage done in the sport of boxing after the news Friday that Antonio Tarver tested positive for a banned substance in a pre-fight drug test conducted by the California State Athletic Commission before his fight with Lateef Kayode. “It’s very worrisome where our sport is heading these days with the recent array of fighters testing positive for banned substances,” Shaw said. “With all these fights being canceled its killing the sport and I hope the networks are not going to lose interest. As promoters, we do our best to make sure everyone is abiding by the rules. I’m happy that the commissions are stepping up their stance on catching fighters cheating because the safety of the fighter should always come first. It’s unfortunate that in Lateef Kayode’s first major opportunity, he had to fight on what appears to be an unlevel playing field.” (more…)
