WBC Clean Boxing: One positive, 11 negative, Canelo, Pacquiao pending

The World Boxing Council’s Clean Boxing Program has released its findings for January following a busy start to the year.

WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman made it one of his main goals to have a system implemented once voted in five years ago.

For the past couple of years, the CBP has grown and is a fully functioning part of the rankings.

Any fighter not enrolled faces removal from the Top 15. They would then miss out on a potential voluntary shot at the title.

Last month, 22 tests were carried out. Only one came back negative.

Marc Vidal’s January 3rd specimen returned an adverse finding for benzoylecgonine.

Announcing their results, the World Boxing Council stated: “The CBP Program is implementing a variety of necessary actions to keep the boxing community fully appraised about the activity of this unique and vital program.

“Its main objective, apart from conducting tests, is to educate athletes about the extreme dangers. Also, the considerable disadvantages that doping can cause.

“This is in addition to the penalties for positive tests detecting prohibited substances, inside or outside a competition.

“The program that has been planned, designed and developed with countless hours of hard work, expertise and dedication. Many dedicated members of the WBC and VADA are involved.

“Basically it`s divided into three main objectives categories:

– Prevention: To educate and advise boxers about the very real dangers of prohibited substances and the tragic effects leading to consequences they may bring about, short and long term. This is done through tutorials, seminars, and forums.

– Random tests out of competition

– Voluntary registration for fighters

During the month of January VADA carried out the following tests. This is the activity report:

Rob Brant Defends Title In Dominant Performance Over Khasan Baysangurov

On Friday, February 15, 2019, Rob Brant (25-1, 17 KOs) put on an absolute clinic as he dominated Khasan Baysangurov (17-1, 7 KOs) and stopped him in the 11th round in his home state of Minnesota.

For Brant, it was the first defense of his WBA regular Middleweight title.

Brant got off to a quick start to begin the contest. He put his hand speed on display in the opening round. The second round showed his power as he knocked Baysangurov down with a right hand that clipped him on the side of the head.

Brant looked much more confident in the ring in comparison to his opponent. He also connected with the more eye-catching shots as well.

Baysangurov began to find a bit of success in the fifth round. Brant began to lunge in and paid the price as Baysangurov began to land a few good shots. That round however was about as much success as Baysangurov had as Brant boxed circles around him. 

It seemed as though the champion was on his way to a clear decision victory. To Brant’s credit he wanted to put an exclamation point on his performance.

He did exactly that in the 11th. In what would end up being the final round, Brant let off a combination of punches that had his man badly hurt.

A few more punches followed and the challenger hit the deck. It seemed over, but somehow he managed to get to his feet. Brant wasted little time jumping back on his opponent. A right hand by the champion staggered Baysangurov to the ropes and the referee stepped in to stop the contest.

It was a terrific performance by Brant who fought like a man who wanted to prove he belongs among the elite of the Middleweight division. If he continues to string together performances like this, then he will make a strong case to be ranked higher among his peers.
