Default Sturm touchy over drugs test results.

typical of boxing. shooting itself in the foot again. just test them and release the results.

Quote:
Stanley flew Bates and Dr Peter Lewis, who oversees most fights in Melbourne, to Dusseldorf to help him ensure that both fighters were tested for all performance enhancing drugs, as the fight contract stipulates.


But, says Stanley, the promoters and the German boxing board have refused to provide a list of what has been tested for other than human growth hormone.

The Australians have not accused Sturm of being a drug cheat but claim the difficulty they are having getting a straight answer about the tests "is making us wonder what's going on."

Stanley said he, Lewis and Bates were heavily outnumbered - "by about 20 to three" - in yesterday's rules meeting, which was when Sturm "started shooting off his mouth."

As well as the drugs and weigh-in issues, there was also an argument about which sets of gloves should be used.

Typical bullshit. It's why the average punter just doesn't care about boxing.

1 sanctioning body. 1 unified set of rules.
