Breaking: Amir Khan banned from sport for two years over doping rule

Amir Khan has been banned from all sport for two years following anti-doping rule violations for the presence and use of a prohibited substance.

Mailonline Sport reported that a urine sample collected by UK Anti-Doping (UKAD) from the 36-year-old after his fight against Kell Brook in February 2022 contained an Adverse Analytical Finding for ostarine – a banned bodybuilding drug.

UKAD notified Khan – an Olympic silver medalist and former world super-lightweight champion – of this on April 6 2022 and issued him with a provisional suspension, meaning he has known about this for 12 months.

On July 20 2022, they then charged the boxer with two Anti-Doping Rule Violations for the presence and use of a prohibited substance.

Khan accepted the violations but maintained his ‘ingestion of ostarine was not “intentional”‘.
