By Johnny Benz, Doghouse Boxing. Erik Morales will be going ahead with his fight against Danny
Garcia. A failed drug test put the fight in doubt, but Morales says he
has received a call from the USADA (U.S. Anti-Doping Agency) stating that everything is okay.
Late Friday, Morales stated through an interpreter:
"I just spoke with USADA, and I don’t have to tell you guys, but they said not to worry and that everything is okay.
You're not guilty until we prove that you are
guilty, and the commission already has accepted the fight, so the fight
Morales sent two new samples to be tested by the USADA on Friday. One of the samples showed a very small trace of clenbuteral and the second sample showed no traces of the substance. Morales believes it may have been something he ate that gave the false positive in the first place.
it looks like Morales has been cleared of any wrong doing and
Saturday's fight with Garcia at the Barclays Center will go ahead as
planned. The fight is the headline for SHOWTIME Boxing's 4x header.
