Russian promoter Andrey Ryabinsky said Friday the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) had concluded that Russian heavyweight boxer Alexander Povetkin was "clean."

MOSCOW (Sputnik) — Earlier it was reported that Russian heavyweight boxer Alexander Povetkin tested negative for meldonium in three Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) tests last month before testing positive.

"WADA sent us today a clarification note saying athletes that tested positive with less than one microgram of meldonium in samples taken before October 1, 2016 will not be disqualified. Therefore, WADA admits that Alexander Povetkin is "clean," Ryabinsky told R-Sport.

"We are awaiting now a positive decision from the World Boxing Council (WBC)," the promoter said.
