Amir Khan, the former world champion boxer, has been banned from all sport for two years after he was found guilty of having ostarine, a banned performance-enhancing drug, in his system on the night he lost to his bitter rival Kell Brook last year.
In 2022, soon after Kell Brook defeated Khan, he provided a urine sample to an official from UK Anti-Doping. A positive test result for ostarine was returned. The former professional boxer shared some new details about his ban from boxing after testing positive for banned drugs.
Amir Khan shares new details after positive drug test
Amir Khan continues to maintain that his positive drug test last year was a complete accident. In a recent interview, Khan suggested a possible theory for his positive drug test, speculating that he may have shared a spiked drink, possibly with one of his friends, many of whom are apparently into bodybuilding, according to Khan.
Khan said the positive result must’ve been from drinking someone else’s drink. Khan said a lot of his friends are on steroids as they all want to get big. He further said that using steroids is the new trend these days and added he has never cheated. To further validate his claims, Amir said that his “flat” performance against Brook should disabuse fans of the notion that he derived any competitive advantage from a drug.
