It has been reported that Manuel Charr has tested positive to two anabolic steroids and that his WBA title fight with Fres Oquendo has been cancelled.
WBA rejected Charr's defense, banned him for 6 months on the 15th nov, which also means he's stripped of the title under their own rules. Charr has said he'll appeal, had his own test done on the 29th sept which he claims come back clean (obviously that has not baring on the original test that was collected on the 31st of Aug). Their has been no further news on the appeal since. His team are saying that they spoke to Oquendo's people in Bulgaria (I don't know why) and they'll fight Oquendo in 2019, their has been no word from Oquendo or his representatives on this though.What is the latest information on Manuel Charr and the WBA title situation and updates would be welcome
