AMIR KHAN, JEAN PASCAL AND VANES MARTIROSYAN HAVE FINALIZED THEIR ENROLLMENT IN THE WBC CLEAN BOXING PROGRAM


PhilBoxing.com


Amir Khan, Jean Pascal and Vanes Martirosyan are listed in the World Boxing Council?s updated list of top rated fighters who have finalized their enrollment in the Clean Boxing Program of the WBC and the Volunteer Anti Doping Association.

In a statement, the World Boxing Council said it wishes to update the developments of the CBP program, following the WBC October ratings publication reflecting the changes as the boxers who did not enroll were deleted as per the WBC / VADA Clean Boxing Program and WBC?s rules and regulations. The WBC said its priority ?is to work in education and awareness to help all involved in boxing learn the dangers of Performance Enhancing Drugs or PED use and also of those illegal procedures which eventually create tremendous health problems to the athletes.?

The WBC said the Webinar which is available at all WBC and CBP websites is a video which is a must to watch in order to learn the specifics about the risks and dangers. Please click in the link below to watch it, http://wbcboxing.com/WBCVADA/.

The WBC reported it had received many communications in the past 2 days from many boxers who were taken out of the WBC ratings and most of them have finished the enrollment process, which for different reasons was not completed in due time. All those boxers who enroll in the program will be returned to the WBC ratings in the month of November, of course following the ratings criteria of the WBC to determine the spot in which they are to be ranked. Among other fighters Amir Khan, Jean Pascal and Vanes Martirosyan have finalized their enrollment, others are in the process, including, Felix Verdejo, Henry Lundy and several others.

The WBC stated ?It is very important to also mention that more than 70 boxers who are not mandated to enroll as they are not ranked in the top 15, have voluntarily submitted and enrolled in this historic program. The WBC salutes it?s champions, all of the top 15 rated fighters, but additional recognition must go to those who took it upon themselves to enter this program. It says so much about concern for their welfare and respect for the sport.?

The WBC stated that ?One of the greatest problems international professional boxing has is the lack of uniformity protecting our fighters. PEDs and supplements can be a constant danger to fighters and their opponents. The CBP is a way to advance uniformity and safety to all who risk so much. There is much hidden facts in products and processes which often lead to naive actions which lead to illegalities. VADA works with Drug Free Sports AXIS (formally named the REC). If you have questions about supplements and prohibited substances, contact https://dfsaxis.com/users/login. Click on the VADA logo and use the passcode vada12.

The WBC said ?the work has been monumental but extremely satisfactory and a new era in our sport has begun as we all together work to make the sport safer and it is all coming from the boxer?s will and trust themselves. The WBC and VADA will work diligently in all aspects of the program, we are designing a mobile platform for the whereabouts notifications, are planning many events to continue the awareness process and as mentioned before, it will all be done TOGETHER !?
