Two-year doping ban
Russian Tamir Galanov has been banned for two years for doping. He won a bronze medal at the 2017 world amateur championships and is Russia’s national flyweight champion. Galanov tested positive for furosemide, a banned diuretic which can be used by boxers to make weight but has potentially serious side effects if used too heavily. It can also be used to mask the presence of other banned substances. Galanov previously tested positive for meldonium in 2016.
