Kendall Holt looking to clear his name in Peterson fight PED situation

Stephen Dunn

Yesterday, it was reported that Lamont Peterson had failed a drug test, but after his name was cleared, opponent Kendall Holt is now attempting to defend himself against speculation he may have taken HCG.

Though Lamont Peterson reportedly did not fail a post-fight drug test from his February 22 win over Kendall Holt, there is still a lot of speculation. Some fans seem to believe that there is a particular stink about the entire situation, but Holt is now trying to clear his own name.

From BoxingScene.com:

"First and foremost, I want everyone to know that I did not knowingly take any PED, nor do I believe I unknowingly took any PED. My camp, at my instruction, requested WADA level testing in connection with my bout with Lamont Peterson. Post bout urine samples were sent to the WADA accredited laboratory testing lab in Salt Lake City."

Holt (28-6, 16 KO) was stopped in eight in the fight, but that doesn't necessarily mean he was clean or anything like that. Of course, it doesn't mean he wasn't clean, either. Basically, we've got a situation where the speculation is going nuts. Someone, they're saying, had an "atypical" test result with HCG. They say it's not Peterson. Holt has not been named specifically. But someone had an issue, so who was it?

According to Gabriel Montoya's report at Max Boxing, Holt had the "atypical" finding. This should become totally clear soon enough, whenever someone official gets around to releasing the results, or it could be brushed aside, as things often are in boxing.
