Last weekend, respected Referee Laurentino Ramirez from Mexico, underwent an anti-doping test as part of the Clean Boxing Program of the World Boxing Council.
The WBC implemented this standard to randomly test ring officials, based on the importance of maintaining maximum integrity in boxing. The tests are designed to detect the usage of recreational drugs such as: marijuana, cocaine and methamphetamines.
Laurentino, who refereed the fight for the WBC International title, between Maria Micheo Santizo and Cinthia Martínez, in Guatemala, was negative in the anti-doping test.
The WBC continues working together with all the national and state federations of the world to develop this vital project.
