Dutch boxer Tyrone Spong may not be able to fight against the Ukrainian heavyweight Alexander Usik. Unsatisfactory results of doping tests Dutchman told promoter Eddie Hearn in his Twitter.
According to Hearne, the test results gave the experts a Voluntary anti-doping Association (VADA). Information will be sent to the Athletic Commission of Illinois for further consideration. The promoter stressed that there is a possibility of replacement of a boxer.
Duel of Spong and 32-year-old Moustache is scheduled for October 12 and will be held in Chicago. Battle should be the debut for the Ukrainian boxer in the heavyweight division.
The tendril was the absolute world champion in the first heavy weight. After defending the title in a battle with Briton Tony Bellew Ukrainian decided to go up in weight and lost the status of absolute world champion.
Usyk has never lost in his professional career, scoring 16 victories. On account of Spong 14 wins and no defeats.
