Randy Watson - That just does not sound right. Most countries anti doping agencies including the US are signatories to the WADA code. So why don't the althetic commissions just adopt that, and make it clear you fight in this state and you are subject to USADA testing verified in indepenent labs.


It costs money to do that kind of testing. To pay for the testers that show up to randomly to collect the samples and then also to pay for the lab work.

Most fighters and promoters won't want to pay for it out of their pocket.

p4p, what kind of pretty penny are we talking about? If I had to make a call I would leave that on the promoters hands down. I would think the cost would easily fit the budget of profit for a major fight?

I imagine that does have to be on the big side of expensive. Leaving a big issue with doing with all fights/fighters.

I have no idea of the actual price tag, Subbed.

That's just what you'll usually hear though, that it's pricy. Then again you usually hear that from a promoter so it could be baloney.

To be honest I am not sure what the funding model is in other sports. I would have thought that in this case, the relevant government authority controls the testing and builds that cost into the fee. A promoter paying for his marquee fighters testing would be a conflict of interest.

It can't be insanely expensive because Nonito Donaire pays for year round VADA testing out of his own pocket. He's making good money but not superstar money. Phone Post

Does the comission have a set drug testing procedure for Nevada, do they follow a set of rules?

I know this is obviously different for different ACs. Is a hybrid set of rules that the majority of fighters/commissions were happy with a step in a positive direction? or is this really that long of an on-going problem and that many 'powers that be' feel different about it to the point that it seems un-solvable?

@ endochoked - Light Heavy prospect Andrzej (andrew) Fonfara takes on Gabe Campillo. I know Andrzej is a long guy with some talent, remember him beating Glen Johnson in his retirement bout. Don't know much about Campillo. Co-main is Mike Mollo vs Artur Szpilka.

Note- Anybody correct me if i'm wrong here. This is whats listed

@ Barry - enjoyed the podcast. Was a good listen before a weekend of Combat sports, looking forward to next one. Wish you had a bit more time to get into the Broner v Maidana fight

The "Polish Prince" Fonfara vs Campillo. I will be there tonight, fights will be at the US Cellular field stadium here in Chicago. First time we are having a boxing event at the White Sox park since Patterson vs Liston in the 60s. Phone Post

This sounds like a good time. Can't wait to check the view of the HD fights at Cellular Field

thanks Subb, the 30 mins flies by....but if the fight gets made, I'll have a nice break down prior to the fight. I'll do a more in depth break down of the Floyd/Canelo card the Wed before the fight. Next week I wanna focus on Arum.

thanks again for the support guys, again if there's any constructive critiscism to give, I'll listen.

It's good to see Chicago hosting some boxing fights. Based on the card I'm guessing that the city has a sizeable Polish population?

Good thing Tennis is going to take another 30 mins to end.
What a joke, FNF gets one 2 hour slot on ESPN 2 and they still overrun programs on to it basically evey time.

Mike Mollo is the only true Chicago guy of the two main fights. The pol's aint cut from the same cloth, Chi rep's Mollo all day.
