Franchon Crews-Dezurn Awaits Jimenez VADA B Sample Results!
The boxing world for women’s boxing was hit hard when it was reported the newly crowned unified super middleweight champion Alejandra Jimenez, after defeating Franchon Crews-Dezurn, tested positive for the banned substance Stanozolol.
Furthermore, it became even more perplexing when the Mexican champion claimed she was innocent, then provided a letter from VADA with a negative result. It appears there are even more questions concerning the test.
She was positive on a sample taken the day before the fight on January 10. However, a conflicting negative sample was taken fight-day, January 11.
Jimenez spoke with the Spanish newspaper called Record, expressing a willingness to have the B sample tested. If the results return in her favor, then VADA has some serious explaining to do.
These are fighters’ careers and reputation that are being ridiculed. Sometimes even with the B sample coming back negative, there are still certain fans that will continue to give fighters the hairy eyeball glare.
Moreover, there is the financial inconvenience this has caused so far. La Tigre was hoping to land a potential fight with the self-proclaimed G.W.O.A.T (Greatest Woman Of All Time) unified junior middleweight champion Claressa “T-Rex” Shields.
It’s worth mentioning that the Flint unified champion hasn’t ruled out fighting the WBC and WBO super middleweight champion. Depending on how things play out, that fight could still be on the table.
However, let’s not forget about the former champion. Crews-Dezurn feels cheated and expressed concerns about her safety. The former champion is paying close attention to this situation and wants back what she feels is rightfully hers.
