Boxer Amir Khan Banned From all Sports For 2 Years

Professional boxer and Olympic medallist Amir Khan has been banned from all sport for two years following Anti-Doping Rule Violations (ADRVs) for the presence and use of a Prohibited Substance.

One of the best boxers from Great Britain is Amir Khan. He became well-known after winning the silver medal in the 2004 Summer Olympics in Athens as a 17-year-old. He was a world champion who competed against the best. His final fight, against Kell Brook, was a spectacular conclusion to an illustrious career.

The Brook fight, which took 17 years to prepare for, was a major occasion that, although being far over its expiration date, captivated the interest of boxing and the larger sports world. When the bout took place, both men were 35. They have since retired.

Testing positive on fight night has been increasingly uncommon because it’s one of the rare occasions when a prominent boxing figure can be sure they’ll be tested.

After Mr. Khan’s match with Kell Brook at the Manchester Arena on February 19, 2022, UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) took a urine sample from him during the competition. The ostarine in Mr. Khan’s sample had an Adverse Analytical Finding (AAF).

On April 6, 2022, UKAD informed Mr Khan of the AAF and that he might have violated the 2021 UK Anti-Doping Regulations by committing ADRVs (ADR). On the same day, UKAD handed him a Provisional Ban from all Code-compliant sports.
