'If It's Boxing, It's Vital'

Bellew Tells It As It Is!

This weekend promises to be an exciting one for boxing fans in the UK.

Up in Sheffield Kell Brook will be defending his IBF world welterweight title whilst in London Nick Blackwell will be defending his British middleweight title against Chris Eubank Junior.

However, the events of the last few days whereby the Australian heavyweight Lucas Browne failed a drugs test after taking the WBA heavyweight title off of the Russian fighter Ruslan Chagaev, has left a few questions unanswered.

Browne is strenuously denying taking any banned substances and there’s always the distinct possibility that he was duped into taking something that would ensure he failed the test, something Tyson Fury was very careful not to do when he fought Wladimir Klitschko over in Germany.

But with the subject of drugs out in the open again, our European cruiserweight champion, Tony Bellew, has had his say on the subject of drugs, remarking to the media,

'I think professional boxing has a major problem with drugs.

'There are not lives at risk in a 100m race. There are in a boxing ring and that is why it is so alarming.'


Bellew, like us here at Vital Boxing, also reckons those caught using drugs should be treated more harshly, further adding,

'Steroids allow people to train much, much harder and recover much, much quicker.

'If someone is taking them in the couple of months in the lead-up to a fight they have such a huge advantage

'I suggest nothing less than a lifetime ban. It shouldn't take someone dying in the ring at the hands of a steroid-user for this to happen.'


Well said Tony Bellew.
