Povetkin Signs Up For VADA Test

As it gets closer to being a reality, Alexander Povetkin and Anthony Joshua have signed up for the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association pool.

Povetkin’s team is closing in on a deal with Joshua and Eddie Hearn for a mandatory WBA title defense, in September.

Povetkin has failed two drug tests in the past, one of which against WBC world champion, Deontay Wilder.

“If it is Povetkin, it will be in September,” claimed Joshua’s promoter Eddie Hearn, as he offered Wilder a shot in April after contract negotiations for a heavyweight unification fight continued to stall.
