The World Boxing Council and the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association are pleased to announce the resumption of anti-doping testing activities under the WBC Clean Boxing Program. Last February, the WBC CBP temporarily suspended testing activities due to the world Covid-19 pandemic.
All eligible boxers under the WBC CBP (top 15 in the last WBC world ratings, current WBC Champions and boxers slated to fight for a WBC Championship) could be subject to random anti-doping testing. VADA has designed a sample collection protocol together with its collection arm Clearidium, that strictly adheres to the most stringent safety procedures available, in full compliance with any applicable rules enacted in the jurisdiction where the sample collection will take place in light of the Covid-19 world situation.
The WBC exhorts all WBC CBP eligible boxers to immediately update their Whereabout Forms as necessary. The WBC CBP Whereabouts Policies and Whereabouts Forms are available at https://wbcboxing.com/WBCVADA/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/WBC-Clean-Boxing-Program-Whereabouts-Policy.pdf and https://wbcboxing.com/WBCVADA/wp-content/uploads/2015/09/WBC-Clean-Boxing-Program-Whereabouts-Form.pdf respectively. The forms include clear submission procedures and instructions.
