British heavyweight boxer Larry Olubamiwo has been suspended for four years after admitting using more than a dozen doping substances.

UK Anti-Doping says Olubamiwo tested positive for the blood-boosting drug EPO on Jan. 30 following a bout with countryman Sam Sexton.

The agency says Olubamiwo later admitted to using 13 banned substances, including human growth hormone and anabolic steroids, over a six-year period.

The 33-year-old fighter is banned from participation in all sports until Feb. 28, 2016. All of his boxing results dating to Jan. 1, 2006, have been annulled.

Olubamiwo had a record of 10-3.

UKAD says it investigated Olubamiwo based on intelligence gleaned from the 2007 U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration probe into drug trafficking called Raw Deal.

If they banned him that hard because "Olubamiwo later admitted to using 13 banned substances, including human growth hormone and anabolic steroids, over a six-year period", no wonder 99% of them will lie and use a "tainted supplement" excuse! What a great reward for fessing up! Our lawyer driven world plainly sucks when it comes to justice.

JJ1337 - NSAC would have given him a year, reduced it to 6months on appeal and apologized for wasting his time by making him show up to the hearing

This sort of thing is going to happen in MMA in the next several years.

Anulled records and stripped titles... that will start to wake people up.

There will be a huge crack down. There is no telling whose record will be anulled or which belts will be stripped. Obviously that isn't happening in MMA yet.

This is the problem, he only got caught for EPO but, by the sounds of it he was taking all kinds of PEDs for years!

I can only imagine the number of other athletes taking PEDs that aren't tested for... Organising bodies need to wake up and start blood testing athletes more, or legalise PEDs. Phone Post

If it was Nick's first offense the NSAC likely would have reduced his suspension to 6 months and reduced the fine. However it wasn't Nick's first offense hence why the NSAC dropped the hammer on him. Weed as a PED is silly but its against the rules.
