Konaki lost to Kusumano by technical knockout in the eighth round during the ceremony at Madison Square Garden. Now it turns out that the competitor was doping.
“Matchroom Group can confirm this Joe Cusumano submitted an unfavorable anti-doping test result “He was ordered by the New York State Athletic Commission after his fight with Adam Konaki on June 24,” the group’s statement read.
We know this committee is now investigating the matter and Matchroom Group is reporting to the relevant regulatory authorities on its next steps. While we are disappointed by this news, it reinforces our belief in the importance of regular testing of active players and we can assure you that we will continue to promote clean and fair sport.
For a time, Kownacki was an undefeated professional fighter. He won 20 fights, but then came the downfall.
Box. Adam Kunakey posted a losing streak
First, he was twice defeated by Finn Robert HeleniusThen by the Turk Aligo Irina Demirezina. Finally, on June 24 of this year, Kusumano’s defeat came.
This was seen as a sensation because the American had never beaten boxers of the Konaki class. But after the painful defeat, he began to think about retiring from the sport.
But it has now become known that the Polish rival was doping, So this fight would likely be considered a no show. We’ll likely find out how much this will change Konaki’s status in the heavyweight division in the near future.
