    Default Spong out of usyk fight due to positive doping test

    This time, Hearn reveals positive doping test

    Former world cruiserweight champion Oleksandr Usyk's heavyweight debut has taken another turn, as his opponent appears to have tested positive for abanned substance. Promoter Eddie Hearn tweeted, "We have been contacted by VADA [the Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency] to inform us that there has been an adverse finding in Tyrone Spong’s test. It has been sent to the State of Illinois commission and further information will be released in the morning. We have reserve opponents standing by." ESPN reports that Usyk definitely will not fight Spong this weekend. Spong is 13-0 but was previously a champion kickboxer with 100 fights.

    Usyk has not fought since last November. His heavyweight debut was delayed once due to injury. Usyk-Spong is shceduled for October 12th in Chicago. [Critics of Eddie Hearn will note that he did NOT make a public announcement when his boxer, Dillian Whyte, had an adverse finding. Whyte was cleared to fight anyway by the British Board of Boxing Control and defeated Oscar Rivas].

    Read a little about this, makes Hearn look shady, maybe it has to do with VADA being a more competent outfit than UKAD as well. The two cases couldnt have been handled more differently, and what happened in the Whyte fight is a joke. Does anyone even know where that stands, all this time later? Also see that Chazz Witherspoon is the last minute replacement

    It’s too bad that they just couldn’t have had Chisora and Usyk fight. That would have been better. I feel bad for Usyk.

    Hearn is definitely a shifty fellow . Fair enough it's short notice but they can do better than Witherspoon. Poor guy has fallen flat at every step up and even got pulverized by an ex football player . Now this is when Hearn needs to get on the horn with Michael Hunter Jr and make at least an interesting rematch for both fighters now at heavyweight. Guarantee he'd jump at it, still fresh and active and be much more competitive than ol Chazz.

    Failed drug test, interesting, I didn’t even know Spong was a Matchroom fighter.
