Every single fighter who is enrolled in the WBC Clean Boxing Program is responsible for his acts. Trainers, managers and promoters must be aware of, and participate directly in the CBP compliance in support of the fighters they represent.
I have seen with deep concern the so many criticisms against WBC champion Jermel Charlo and interim champion Jermall Charlo regarding their missed tests.
It is important for the WBC to clarify that both Charlos have been tested in the past and that the infraction they are facing is a missed test, which has been acknowledged and they will be responsible to pay the corresponding fine. It is important, however, to clarify that they have not tested positive for any substance whatsoever.
This is why it is extremely urgent for all boxers to enroll in the CBP and to update at all times their residence and training location to VADA, which is the agency administrating the CBP for the WBC.
It is very simple, if you are chosen for testing and are not available for the collector to test you, you will be incurring a missed test penalty.
It is of extreme importance that every fighter updates their whereabouts forms with VADA at all times.
What do you need to do?
IMMEDIATELY contact VADA at
Margaret@VADA-testing.org with residence & training addresses as well as current cell phone #.
You may also submit an updated CBP form and email to Margaret@VADA-testing.org

FINAL NOTICE: Effective January 1, 2019 missed tests will be enforced with a much stronger protocol, which means that monetary fines will be higher and fighters missing tests will be subjected to possible additional penalties, which include rejection of enrollment in the program and loss of WBC ranking.
The WBC is committed to clean boxing and to keep our boxers safe. We are extremely proud of every single boxer enrolled in CBP.
Being a CBP enrolled fighter demonstrates your commitment to clean sport. The WBC proudly promotes the names of tested fighters. Do NOT become a headline for missing your test!
