WBC Gives Vargas and JC Martinez A Pass For Presence Of Clenbuterol In Their Systems


The WBC saw two boxers pop for PED usage…but the sanctioning body put out a release which absolved the two fighters.

Off the top of my head, I cannot understand how the oversight body’s people could determine from the amount of offending chemical in the test when the clenbuterol was ingested.

Is it possible to know that six, four or two weeks before a collection date, enough of the chemical to obtain a leg-up in training had NOT been in those fighters; system?
