The thing with cycling is that there is a one central body responsible for governing the sport. There is no one in boxing to take responsibility for this, which is why it is allowed to fester and perpetuate . . .

I really don't see how this gets resolved. Boxing is possibly the most poorly governed, shadiest and most financially driven sport around. There's absolutely no motivation for anyone to try and clean it up.

The closest we get is a promoter trying to enforce random drug testing only to be bitten in the ass when they realise how dirty the sport is and how financially damaging it's going to be for them to keep catching out their fighters.
