The results of the recent Ryan Garcia Ostarine drug test have now been revealed.

Ryan Garcia Ostarine Controversy – What’s Next After POSITIVE B Sample

It has today been revealed that the results of the recent Ryan Garcia Ostarine drug test B-Sample have come back. Garcia has notably maintained his innocence in the face of PED accusations, following his recent win against Devin Haney.

Garcia has come off a career-best performance over the previously undefeated Devin ‘The Dream’ Haney, handing him the first loss of his record, which now sits at 31-1. Garcia’s record now sits at 25-1, with his only loss coming at the hands of Gervonta ‘Tank’ Davis.

Controversy arose following the bout when it was revealed that Garcia had tested positive for a banned substance in his routine drug test. Ostarine is a Selective Androgen Receptor Modulator or SARM for short, a banned substance similar to steroids in its use for building muscle mass, enhancing fat loss, and in increasing stamina and recovery.

Devin and his father Bill Haney have had much to say on the matter, imploring that the result be overturned and made into either a ‘No Contest’, or a disqualification of Garcia, restoring Haney’s undefeated record.

Following the drama, Garcia’s B-Sample (a sample used to confirm or invalidate the presence of PEDs) was sent in for testing and the result has been much anticipated, until today.

It has today been revealed that Garcia’s B-Sample has tested POSITIVE for Ostarine, a banned performance-enhancing substance.

Amidst calls to ban Garcia from the sport, the boxer has responded in quite an unconventional and eccentric way (not unlike some his previous antics), with this now-deleted tweet.

It remains to be seen what will happen with regards to the Devin Haney result, and whether we’ll ever see Garcia in the ring again.

Drug bans are nothing new to the sport, with the WADA outlining their penalties as follows: First violation: Two (2) years’ Ineligibility. Second violation: Lifetime Ineligibility”. It is currently unknown what penalty Garcia may receive.
