Former WBO Cruiserweight Champ Krzysztof Glowacki Receives Four-Year Doping Ban

Krzysztof Glowacki, the former WBO cruiserweight champion, has been banned by UKAD for four years after testing positive for Boldenone. 

Glowacki won his WBO cruiserweight title against Marco Huck before losing his belt to Oleksandr Usyk. The British Boxing Board of Control granted him an overseas license last January when he faced Richard Riakporhe, subjecting him to UKAD’s rules. The failed UKAD test followed after his loss to Riakporhe when he was stopped in the fourth round.

Under section 1 of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) 2023 rules, Boldenone is considered a banned anabolic steroid. Glowacki denied taking the substance. He was banned by UKAD last April, pending an investigation. The National Anti-Doping Panel held a hearing on October 31st, 2023, which has now resulted in a ban. The four-year ban will likely end Glowacki’s career.

“It is very important that athletes respect the rules and understand their responsibilities to uphold clean sport. Boldenone, as with all steroids, is performance enhancing and undermines the integrity of sport. There is no place for steroids in sport,” Hamish Coffey |(UKAD Director of Operations)
