Former heavyweight world titleholder Bermane Stiverne failed a random drug test for a banned substance ahead of his vacant interim title fight against Alexander Povetkin but will still be allowed to fight, the WBC announced Monday.With titleholder Deontay Wilder out of action following hand and biceps surgery, Povetkin and Stiverne were ordered to fight for the interim belt, with Wilder obligated to face the winner.Stiverne, born in Haiti and based in Las Vegas, and Russias Povetkin are scheduled to fight Dec. 17 in Ekaterinburg, Russia. Povetkin promoter Andrey Ryabinsky of World of Boxing won promotional rights to the fight at a purse bid last month with an offer of $3.165 million to easily defeat the second-place bid of $2.1 million made by Don King, Stivernes promoter.On Monday, the WBC disclosed that Stiverne had failed a drug test as part of its mandatory Clean Boxing Program, which is administered by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association.The WBC said Stiverne provided the sample Nov. 4 and was informed of the failed test for the banned substance methylhexaneamine, a stimulant also known as dimethyamylamine or DMAA, on Nov. 11. DMAA has been on the World Anti-Doping Agency prohibited substances list since 2010 and has been linked to life-threatening side effects.Throughout the investigative process, Stiverne has been extremely cooperative and 100 percent forthcoming, the WBC said. Stiverne informed the WBC that on the day of the test, in order to facilitate urination, he took a dietary supplement called Superharm in front of the sample collector. He reported the ingestion of that supplement in the declaration of medication use section of the doping control form he filled in connection with the test.Stiverne also reported that he ingested the supplement twice the same day and that he took it because the supplement staff at EOS Gym in Henderson, Nevada, recommended it to him. He was looking for a product that would help him with post-workout fatigue. Stiverne is fully aware of the gravity of the mistake he made by taking an off-the-shelf supplement without investigating its ingredients in detail. Stiverne also realizes that he is ultimately responsible for anything that he ingests. In short, he now realizes that he was very na?ve by following a stores recommendation of an off-the-shelf supplement while being ignorant of its contents.The WBC said in its report that it will still sanction the bout for the interim title because Stiverne has never had a positive test in the past and there is no evidence that Stiverne intentionally or even knowingly ingested a banned substance with the purpose of enhancing his performance in any fashion. Stivernes ingestion of DMAA was purely accidental.In its ruling, the WBC said it would fine Stiverne $75,000 but it will not withdraw its sanction of the bout at this point in light of the fact that there is sufficient time to put in place preventative and remedial measures to protect the health and safety of the bouts participants.VADA will design a specific testing protocol for Stiverne at his expense, and it will begin as soon as possible and continue for six months after the fight.If Stiverne has another failed test, the WBC said he would be suspended from participating in WBC-sanctioned fights indefinitely and would be stripped of the title if he beats Povetkin, a former titleholder. The WBC said it will also ask Stiverne to perform 40 hours of community service to help educate young athletes about the dangers of doping.He ingested an energy drink, King told ESPN. Ive had him for 15 years and never hes never had any kind of drug dispute or banned substance issues. The day he was tested, he drank it. You got to be able to deal with it. It could have been great jeopardy for him. VADA does a terrific job. I have nothing but the highest respect for [VADA president] Dr. Margaret Goodman.Im very happy he still has the opportunity for this fight. He knows not to take it. I told him dont take nothin from nobody. Everything is good.Povetkin has his own history of drug issues. He was supposed to fight Wilder (37-0, 36 KOs), who won the belt by lopsided decision from Stiverne in January 2015, in a mandatory bout May 21 in Moscow. The fight was canceled nine days beforehand, when Povetkin failed a VADA test for the banned substance meldonium, which he claimed he ingested before the drug was added to the WADA banned list in January.The WBC ultimately elected to not punish Povetkin because the amount of the substance in his system was far below the threshold accepted by WADA in an updated notice on the drug published in June. There remain questions, however, about how Povetkin could have tested negative in random VADA doping tests conducted April 7, 8 and 11 while his April 27 sample -- the A and the B -- was positive for meldonium.Based on Ryabinskys winning purse bid, Povetkin (30-1, 22 KOs), 37, and Stiverne (25-2-1, 21 KOs), 38, are each entitled to $1,424,250 apiece, with the remaining 10 percent of the winning bid, $316,500, going to the winner of the fight as a bonus.

This should be celebrated because it will not always be this way. With the amount of money given to players by their clubs these days, it is a wonder that so many of those teams allow the sport to continue to take away many of their assets so they can play for a different team in the middle of their season. Dale Steyn has joined convener of selectors Linda Zondi in endorsing AB de Villiers as South Africas permanent Test captain, and wants to see him back in the role once fit.I think so, he is the captain. He is definitely the captain, Steyn said at an exhibition match between the South African cricket and rugby teams at Newlands. I know Faf has done really well for us right now, but AB is the captain. He has earned that spot. He has played for a long time, and he said he wants to do it and he got the opportunity to. Unfortunately, he got injured, but he is the man at the end of the day.De Villiers was named Test captain in February after having taken the role temporarily when Hashim Amla stood down midway during the home series against England, but has yet to properly assume his new job. An elbow injury that required surgery kept de Villiers out of the home Tests against New Zealand in August and the series in Australia. He is expected to be fit for the Sri Lanka series, which starts on Boxing Day. But he has only had one net session so far and has yet to get any game time, which is why Graeme Smith felt de Villiers focus should be on getting match fit before he thinks about the captaincy conundrum.The most important thing for AB now is just to focus on getting back and fit and playing cricket. I dont think he should even engage in thinking about that (the captaincy) because he cant captain from the sidelines, Smith said. Having had an elbow injury, its not an easy thing to recover from. It takes time, getting those tendons strong and all those muscles. Thats your primary arm that you use when you bat. He should focus on that. The sooner we can get him playing cricket for South Africa, the better.Smith said he enjoyed seeing South Africa streamline the leadership, but explained they may be wary of appointing one captain across formats as T20s could create the space required for managing the Test and ODI captains workload. Its very difficult to captain all three formats, and the T20 format is a difficcult one because you dont play a huge amount of cricket.dddddddddddd So is that the right time to rest your captain, with the workloads he is going to have in one-day and Test cricket? Smith asked.Smith isnt the only one to voice that concern. After de Villiers spent a significant period of the previous summer hinting that heavy workloads could send him into early retirement, the most obvious solution seemed to be him playing fewer, or even no international T20s. Du Plessis is the captain in that format, and with no ICC event scheduled until 2020, de Villiers may not get a chance to win a major trophy in T20Is, choosing instead to focus on Tests and ODIs. In that case, keeping your captain fresh is an important part of maintaining success, Smith said.The only problem with that is that South Africas recent successes, after the troubles in the previous summer, have come under du Plessis. He was brought back to lead the side, after being dropped for the final Test against England earlier this year. South Africa won both series they played under him to begin their climb from No. 7.Du Plessis leadership was widely praised, and the squad showed him an extraordinary level of support, particularly when he was charged with ball tampering. Du Plessis himself said he saw that as a sign they respected him as a leader. However, he was quick to dismiss suggestions that he was after de Villiers job, saying he was 100% behind de Villiers when he returns as captain.Steyn, who will be sidelined for at least the rest of this season as he recovers from a broken shoulder, agreed. When AB steps back into the side, there should be almost no question about it. I know there have been eyebrows raised because Faf has done well, but there should never be any question about who the real captain is or who the captain is, and he should just step back into it and continue what Faf has already started.
