Recently it was revealed that Shannon Briggs had failed a random VADA drug test. ‘The Cannon’ tested positive for very high levels of testosterone. The WBA has confirmed the situation.

“Heavyweight Shannon Briggs tested positive on Testosterone following a Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency (VADA) test as part of the WBA Fair Boxing program. 

Briggs, who is scheduled fight Fres Oquendo for the WBA regular heavyweight title has the right to request the testing of B Sample. 

WBA Directors will comply with due process and respect Briggs legitimate right to defend before ruling on it.”

The scheduled fight between Briggs and Oquendo will most likely be cancelled. Although if Briggs requests a B sample and comes clean, then there might be another date looming for the fight. Nonetheless, it’s highly unlikely the original date for the fight will go through after Briggs’s failed drug test.

UPDATE:

The fight is officially cancelled and won’t be rescheduled.

Hitz Boxing and The Heavyweight Factory released the following joint statement:

“The Backyard Brawl: Briggs vs. Oquendo battle for the World Boxing Association (WBA) Heavyweight Championship on Saturday, June 3, 2017 at Hard Rock Live at the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casinoin Hollywood, FL has been officially canceled.

“The fight has not been rescheduled at this time. Ticket refunds are available at point of purchase.”
