THAI CONFIRMS PORNSAWAN USED AMMONIA!
Mon, 01 Oct 2007
A Thai national, who was present at the Donnie Nietes-Pornsawan Kratingdaenggym WBO bout last night, revealed in a post-fight interview that indeed, the erstwhile unbeaten Thai fighter used "Chai Che Chew" or better known as Ammonia to help revive him in the crucial moments of the 12-round showdown.
The Thai national was shown the small bottle confiscated by Filipino trainer Juanito Ablaca from the Thai's corner after the fight, and confirmed that indeed, it was Ammonia.
Nietes had prevailed by outpointing the Thai en route to a unanimous decision victory, but was clearly gasping for breath, while the Thai looked very much alive round after round.
GAB physician Jose Unabia, in a post-fight interview, revealed that the post-fight urine test he conducted on Pornsawan was positive for Ephedrine, a substance found in a highly-regulated substance, although Unabia said it could have been triggered by the use of Ammonia.
Nietes' post-fight urine test was cleared by Unabia, who said the Filipino fighter fought above board all throughout.
Unabia stressed that the finding on Pornsawan is "not yet conclusive," but should lead to some revelations later.
Meanwhile, WBO Asia Pacific chairman Leon Panoncillo has immediately issued a statement, saying that Ammonia is not allowed in any fight, and he will confer with the WBO on what step to take next.
