This is because the Athletic Commission of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe ruled that the Mexican, who is a super featherweight world champion of the CMB, you can continue with the scheduled fight. The decision is despite the fact that both sample A and B from his anti-doping test tested positive for the banned substance phentermine.
It should be remembered that the anti-doping test in which Oscar Valdez He tested positive on August 13 and after meeting him, they requested the opening of test B which had the same positive result.
The legal defense of Valdez tried from the beginning to put that argument that for the WADA phentermine was not a prohibited substance at the time the fighter ingested it in the form of herbal tea.
The World Anti Doping Agency (WADA) differentiates between banned out-of-competition substances and banned in-competition substances. Phentermine is a prohibited substance by WADA in competition, but it is allowed out of competition.
However, the Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency (VADA), which was the agency hired to carry out anti-doping controls for a fight between Valdez and Conceicao, it doesn’t make that difference. For the VADA, phentermine is illegal at all times.
However, the Athletic Commission of the Pascua Yaqui Tribe decided to give the fighter the green light to fight despite the positive doping.
