Heavyweight Larry Olubamiwo banned for four years after doping offences

Posted: June 18, 2012 in Uncategorized

British heavyweight Larry Olubamiwo has received a four-year ban for a number of doping offences.

The Hackney fighter admitted using 13 banned substances, including anabolic steroids, over a six-year spell.

Olubamiwo tested positive for the blood-boosting drug EPO in January.

The 33-year-old had built up a reputation as a big puncher with a series of knockout wins, but defeats against John McDermott and Norwich-based Sam Sexton ended any genuine hope of landing a title.
