After testing positive for a prohibited substance, Amir Khan received a two-year ban from all sports, including boxing, following an anti-doping violation.
On April 6, 2022, it was determined that Khan had taken the substance by accident, and the suspension began.
Khan acknowledges the violation but insists that he did not intend to.
Amir Khan received a two-year ban from all sports after testing positive for a prohibited substance following his fight with Kell Brook last year.
In the wake of losing to Creek in Manchester on February 19, 2022, UK Hostile to Doping revealed that Khan, 36, tried positive for the anabolic specialist ostarine.
After a hearing in January, an independent panel accepted Khan’s argument that he had not intentionally ingested the substance, despite admitting to violating anti-doping rules. Khan announced his retirement in May of last year.
A UKAD statement said: “Mr Khan’s two-year ban is deemed to have commenced on April 6 2022 (the date his provisional suspension was imposed) and will expire on April 5 2024.”
Khan was halted in the 6th round of his resentment battle with harsh adversary Creek 14 months prior in what ended up being his last proficient session.
During his 40-fight career, he won 34 fights and lost six, unified world titles at super-lightweight, and fought pound-for-pound superstars Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Terence Crawford.
After winning a silver medal at the Olympic Games in Athens in 2004, the Bolton fighter began his professional career in 2005.
