Default Botha tests positive for banned substance

[Only registered and activated users can see links. ]

FRANCOIS Botha, the former heavweight world champion beaten by Sonny Bill Williams on Friday night, has tested positive to a banned substance.
Botha, whose claims that he did not know the WBA international heavyweight bout would only last 10 rounds have also now been discredited, failed a drugs test on the eve of the fight.

Results of a urine sample submitted by the 44-year-old South African in Brisbane last Tuesday under WBA regulations show he had Phentermine - a banned stimulant - in his system.

The drugs test, which has now been forwarded to the WBA's global headquarters in Panama, also detected Benzodiazepine, which suggested Botha was also using a valium-type product.

Leading sports doctor Peter Larkin said the two substances had an opposite effect.

"One puts you to sleep, one keeps you awake," Larkin told Fairfax Media. "Phentermine is part of the go-fast group, as I call them, which is similar category to all of the adrenalin amphetamines...anything that is a stimulant that keeps you awake and improves your reflexes."
According to witnesses who saw Botha in his dressing room before the fight, he was extremely relaxed and was lying on the floor as Williams entered the ring first

However, once the fight got under way, he was alert and continually taunted Williams, while trying to put him off his game with a series of late shots after the bell to end each round or when the referee had seperated the pair.

Botha had a victory in 1995 against Germany's Axel Schulz to win the IBF heavyweight Championship, but later tested positive for the steroid nandrolone [1] he and his camp claimed to be prescribed by a doctor for an arm injury. The result of the fight was then changed to a "No Contest" and the IBF do not recognize Botha as former champion, although Botha was introduced as a former champ in every single professional boxing contest he has engaged in since.
I think nandrolone is the same sht Tarver tested positive for.

Could be possible he took the valium to help him sleep. Its a perscribed drug so if he has been perscribed valium he may get off. The other drug in his system is a weight loss drug, its used to supress ones apetite.

I think those canines are trying to dirty Botha's name and deflect the stain that is on themselves. WAR BOTHA.
