Adviser: Erislandy Lara back in WBC drug testing program

It was all a misunderstanding, apparently.

Alert: you heard that Erislandy Lara withdrew from the WBC Clean Boxing testing program and that the WBC yanked the 154 ace from their rankings?

Misunderstanding, Lara adviser Luis De Cubas told me on Wednesday night.

The Florida-based boxer “has enrolled back in the WBC program,” De Cubas said.

“He will be fighting for the WBA title vs Brian Castano but Mr. Sulaiman said he can stay in program whether he’s fighting for the WBC or not, so it worked out well. He’s also has enrolled in the WBA clean boxing program and is discussing doing the 365 testing with VADA.”

For the record, then.
