The post-fight drug tests for victorious fighters Tim Bradley, Orlando Salido, Vasyl Lomachenko and “Irish” Seanie Monaghan as well as their counterparts on HBO’s Oct. 12 Pay Per View broadcast at Thomas & Mack Center returned negative for anabolic steroids, masking agents and marijuana, according to Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer.
Bradley defended his WBO welterweight belt by split-decision over Juan Manuel Marquez in the main event. In the other fights, Salido stopped Orlando Cruz in the seventh round of their bout for the WBO’s vacant featherweight belt, Lomachenko scored a fourth-round knockout over 126-pound rival Jose Luis Ramirez, and Monaghan won his light heavyweight fight by third-round knockout over Anthony Caputo Smith.
Kizer also said that the rest of the fighters on the nine-fight card tested negative, as did those on the Oct. 11 card whose main event featured a unanimous decision by Jesse Vargas over Ray Nahr also at The Thomas & Mack Center.
