How long have I been feeling endless hurt
Falling down, rain flows into my heart
In the pain I'm waiting for the Champ
Can't go back
No place to go back to
Life is lost, Flowers fall
If it's all dreams
Now wake me up
If it's all real
Just kill me

So Charr saying the blood test is negative and the urine sample positive.

Not sure what that means in light of the two banned substances they found in the urine sample?

What is the latest information on Manuel Charr and the WBA title situation and updates would be welcome
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.

As I can't find a WBA official statement on the issue at hand, we will probably have to wait until the end of the month when the WBA update their rating to see if the actually have stripped him or not, the Nov rankings have him still listed with an asterisk.

I think as it stands it's
Super Champion - Joshua (who never beat the linear super champion)
Schrödinger's "Regular" Champion - Charr*
Court mandated "Regular" mandatory - Oquendo
Interim Champion and thus "Regular" mandatory - Byron
Eliminator winner - Miller
