Default Re: If Berto and Peterson had been tested under USADA

The facts are he no longer wants to work with VADA, the organisation who has come up with positive tests for a number of fighters due to fight on GB cards, and who would not succumb to his pressure breach their own disclosure policy. He has instead opted to work with the organisation who seem to provide a more bespoke service (see Morales repeated failed tests) and don't seem to mind breaching their own sample handling policies (see Quillin - Wright) for inexplicable reasons.

The problem here is boxing promoters are not going to put their own finances at risk, and therefore any time a promoter is in charge with handling the drug testing it is always going to secondary to ensure a profit is made. Throw in that private contracts are drawn up with the testers, and that no one seems to be sure exactly what's being tested for, how or what the protocol for dealing with positives tests is then its not hard to understand why there is little faith in the way things are being handled.
