Two-year dop­ing ban

Sunday News - - SPORT -

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.
