Ineffective anti-doping system has boxing at a crossroads

Sep 1, 2021

There is a major gap in the anti-doping system employed in boxing that makes it far easier for a boxer to use a banned substance, cycle off and yet still reap the benefits from it than there is for a UFC fighter.

No drug testing system is 100 percent foolproof, but UFC fighters are subjected to drug tests 24 hours a day, seven days a week, 365 days a year. That’s not the case with boxers, and that’s where the gap exists.
