 BUTE AND HIS PROMOTER SPEAK ON FAILED DRUG-TEST

Lucian Bute was informed of the results of the anti-doping test done after his World Boxing Council (WBC) world title fight against Badou Jack, April 30, in Washington, D.C. As reported in a statement sent by the WBC, the Washington D.C. Boxing and Wrestling Commission informed them that Bute tested positive for Ostarine, in an A sample analysis, after the bout. ''I am surprised and sorry about this. I don't understand what led to this positive result, Bute said. "I have always passed every anti-doping test that I was asked to take since I won a world title. More recently for my fight against James DeGale, in Quebec City, last November, I was tested eight times from before my training camp until after my fight. I have never taken any illegal products. I have a complete trust in my team. There will be an analysis of the B sample and I am sure that this result will be negative.''

 SMS BANKRUPTCY BOUNCED FROM CONNECTICUT COURT
By Scott Shaffer

SMS Promotions, the boxing promotional company formed by hip-hop star Curtis “50 Cent” Jackson saw its bankruptcy petition dismissed by Connecticut bankruptcy court. The court  threw SMS’ case out of court because the company failed to submit a restructuring plan within the time required by the court rules. SMS’ attorneys did not object to the move. Attorneys for the company previously stated that the two boxers who were causing difficulties, Yuriorkis Gamboa and Ryan Martin, had reached deals with SMS. However, there are still other creditors involved, and having the case dismissed means that the Court will not protect SMS from those claims.  50 Cent also filed for personal bankruptcy in 2015, claiming at the time that he had assets worth $10 million but liabilities worth $50 million.

 MAURICE WATKINS TRAINING HEAVYWEIGHT JUSTIN JONES

Press Release:  Given the size of his dreams, the pairing of the undefeated Houston heavyweight Justin "Jawbreaker" Jones (18-0-1, 11 KOs) and Texas boxing legend Maurice "Termite" Watkins is ideal. When you're an unknown fighter looking to break into boxing’s big time, who better to have as your trainer than a man known for working fistic miracles? "Termite has me doing things I have never done before," said Jones. "He's a work-ethic guy. He makes me throw a lot of punches and wants me busy all the time. He wants me to throw 250 punches, per round, on the bag. That's unheard of for a heavyweight. He makes me push myself you know? I really think I'm going to break a CompuBox record someday."bA well-respected trainer and former fighter, Watkins retired in 1990 with a record of 61-5-2, 41 KOs. He challenged for the WBC 140-pound title in 1980, losing a 15-round decision to Saoul Mamby. But he is probably known best for a different pair of achievements.
