 Unbeaten Luis Nery (24-0, 18 KOs)failed his pre-fight drug test for his title challenge earlier this month against previously unbeaten WBC World bantamweight champion Shinsuke Yamanaka (27-1-2, 18 KOs) for their fight on August 15 at the Shimazu Arena in Kyoto, Japan.

Nery stopped the 34-year-old Yamanaka in round 4 of the fight. Nery was much too fast and powerful for the aging Japanese fighter. Nery, 22, tested positive for the banned drug Zilpaterol, according to the World Boxing Council.

There’s no word yet about results of their fight being changed to a no contest or a disqualification. If Nery fights Yamanaka a second time, he’s very likely to knock him out again.

“The WBC has been notified by VADA of an adverse finding from an out of competition sample taken from WBC bantamweight champion Luis Nery,” said the WBC. 

“The WBC Clean Boxing Program will begin the process according to its protocol and will provide additional information during the process,” the WBC said.

Nery has the option of having his B-sample tested by the WBC if he chooses. The WBC hasn’t decided about the results of the Nery vs. Yamanaka fight yet.

The WBC can certainly order a rematch between Nery and Yamanaka if they choose to.
