Magee devastated by positive drugs test
- From the section Boxing
Belfast boxer Brian Magee says he was shocked to learn that he had failed a drugs test after his fight against Mikkel Kessler in December.
Magee was handed a six-month ban after the UK Anti-Doping Agency accepted that he had taken an over-the-counter supplement which had been contaminated.
The product contained the prohibited stimulant Oxilofrine which is the same substance which Jamaican sprinters Asafa Powell and Sherone Simpson have tested positive for in recent weeks.
Former WBA super-middleweight champion Magee, 38, hopes to be in action before the end of this year.
