Antonio Tarver tested positive for synthetic testosterone, a banned substance


Former light heavyweight champion Antonio Tarver tested positive for synthetic testosterone, a banned substance, in a drug test before his heavyweight draw with Steve Cunningham.

I have no idea how my urine sample tested positive because I didn’t take anything illegal,” Tarver said. “Either the test was contaminated or mixed up with another sample. We believe in the process, and I will fully comply. Further analysis will prove I’m 100 percent innocent because I’ve done nothing wrong.

Sports Illustrated, which was first to report Tarver’s positive test, said in its report that when Tarver’s “A” sample tested positive, he requested the “B” sample also be tested, and it too came back positive. A source with knowledge of the results confirmed to on Monday that Tarver’s “A” and “B” samples were both positive for synthetic testosterone.

I think they perceived that nothing was to be done for the present, and had gone away to breakfast at Henderson‘s house. There were four or five boys sitting on the edge of the Pit, with their feet dangling, and amusing themselves–until I stopped them–by throwing stones at the giant mass. After I had spoken to them about it, they began playing at “touch” in and out of the group of bystanders. Among these were a couple of cyclists, a jobbing gardener I employed sometimes, a girl carrying a baby, Gregg the butcher and his little boy, and two or three loafers and golf caddies who were accustomed to hang about the railway station. There was very little talking. Few of the common people in England had anything but the vaguest astronomical ideas in those days. Most of them were staring quietly at the big table like end of the cylinder, which was still as Ogilvy and Henderson had left it.

I fancy the popular expectation of a heap of charred corpses was disappointed at this inanimate bulk. Some went away while I was there, and other people came. I clambered into the pit and fancied I heard a faint movement under my feet.

Our prime purpose in this life is to help others. And if you can’t help them, at least don’t hurt them.
