Do you know why Amir Khan get Banned for Two years from Boxing?

Amir Khan, British boxer of the Pakistan origin, banned for two years.

The unexpected news was revealed by UK Anti-Doping Agency (UKAD). Ostarine, an anabolic agent that is on the World Anti-Doping Agency’s (WADA) 2022 Banned List and has effects similar to testosterone, a chemical that Amir Khan confirmed to have taken, according to UKAD.

therefore he was prohibited from boxing from April 2022 to April 2024. Khan was provisionally suspended from all sports governed by the Code on the same day that UKAD alerted him that he might have violated anti-doping rules (ADR)s.

“I want to retire from boxing by the time I am 25 or 26 and be a legend by that age. I don’t want to get punched all my life”

Later, Khan was charged with two anti-doping rule violations: the presence of a prohibited drug and the use of a prohibited substance. But, the athlete explained that he took the chemical well before the fight and in a very little amount, therefore it had no effect on his performance.

He also stated that he is retired and has no plans to return, making a ban unfathomable. He stated in an interview, “I’ve never cheated,” But now I’m on a two-year ban, which is bizarre and amusing given that I’m already retired. There are no plans for a comeback. But I’ve never cheated and will never cheat again. That is something I would never do.”
