Don't tell me he's going to have another fight canceled.

Germany's Airich tests positive after Solis defeat

BERLIN: German heavyweight Konstantin Airich has tested positive for testosterone following his unanimous defeat to Cuba's Odlanier Solis last May in the United States for the IBF Inter-Continental title.
The 33-year-old former German amateur champion can now expect a one-year ban, according to his manager, after losing to Solis, the 2004 Olympic champion, in Pharr, Texas, on May 19.
Airich's future bouts have been cancelled.
"Constantine lost, despite doping, against Solis, but that is not a trivial offence," said his promoter Ahmet Oner after being informed of the failed test
by the boxing authorities in Texas ahead of a later hearing.
"We will end the year, make a plea for mercy and hope that next year Konstantin can get in the ring. At the end of the day, the boy needs to feed his family."
