    UK boxer suspended 4 yrs, fights annulled for 5 yrs, over PEDs


    British heavyweight boxer Larry Olubamiwo has been suspended for four years after admitting using more than a dozen doping substances.

    UK Anti-Doping says Olubamiwo tested positive for the blood-boosting drug EPO on Jan. 30 following a bout with countryman Sam Sexton.

    The agency says Olubamiwo later admitted to using 13 banned substances, including human growth hormone and anabolic steroids, over a six-year period.

    The 33-year-old fighter is banned from participation in all sports until Feb. 28, 2016. All of his boxing results dating to Jan. 1, 2006, have been annulled.

    Olubamiwo had a record of 10-3.

    UKAD says it investigated Olubamiwo based on intelligence gleaned from the 2007 U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration probe into drug trafficking called Raw Deal.

    They should do the same thing in MMA. The Chael Sonnens and the Roidereems receive a very benevolent punishment.
    Not only brazilians can do this stuff
