WBC lifts lifetime ban on Russian boxer Alexander Povetkin – promoter
The World Boxing Council (WBC) has lifted the lifetime suspension on Russia’s Alexander Povetkin, his promoter Andrey Ryabinsky announced on Wednesday.
“I promised that we would achieve justice for Povetkin. So, a few months ago we achieved justification from all organizations except the WBC, and now the WBC also sent us a letter saying that they will lift the lifetime ban on Povetkin. Starting December 6, he can officially conduct fights in the WBC, and from January will be returned to the official rating ,” Ryabinsky wrote on his Instagram profile, as translated from the original Russian.
In March, Povetkin was indefinitely banned by the WBC as well as being fined $250,000, after testing positive for banned drug Ostarine prior to his planned fight against Canadian Bermane Stiverne in December 2016. It was his second doping violation in a year.
In May 2016, a positive test for meldonium put paid to a showdown with WBC champion Deontay Wilder in the week leading up to the proposed fight in Moscow.
Povetkin was cleared of that case in August of the same year, but was ordered to undergo extra drug testing at his own expense for the next 12 months.

R.I.P. my friend
I want to share with you a song that my son Wes wrote after the tragic shooting here in Las Vegas. The song, “We Can Be Strong” expresses well the way those of us who live in Las Vegas feel about that tragic event and others like it that we have all recently faced in America. Both Adie and I are proud of Wes for his work in writing and performing this song. He gives voice to the sorrow of these events but also our resolve to make things better. #Vegasstrong
