U.K. Boxing Scene. Plus, Team Lamont Peterson releases a statement to Read statement below. (- Editor's note.)
According to Gareth Davies, it looks like the UK grudge match between David Haye and Dereck Chisora is a go for the summer:
Ron Lewis of The Times tweeted on Monday afternoon, (@RonLewisTimes): “Khan-Peterson in trouble. I understand there's a problem with Peterson. Next 24 hours crucial.”
Then our very own Gabriel Montoya tweeted later, (@Gabriel_Montoya): “I'm told by reliable sources that Lamont Peterson has tested positive for a banned substance.”
Team Peterson then released this statement to Maxboxing: “We have tremendous respect for VADA and its mission. Lamont, Barry [Hunter] and the entire team emphatically support random drug testing in the most comprehensive manner possible. We are working expeditiously with the team of pathologists and other medical specialists to confirm the origin of the test result and in full compliance with the rules of the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Lamont has never had a positive test, either before or after this isolated occurrence, and we plan to submit medical findings by the close of business Tuesday that reflects the actual facts in support of Lamont's good faith intentions and requirements of the commission.”
