British fighter gets 2-year doping ban

Tuesday - 3/5/2013, 9:20am  ET

LONDON (AP) -- British boxer John Donnelly has been suspended for two years after a positive doping test.

The UK Anti-Doping agency says Donnelly tested positive for benzoylecgonine, a metabolite of cocaine, on Nov. 9, 2012. His ban will run until Nov. 26, 2014.

UKAD says the 28-year-old professional fighter failed an in-competition test for the substance, a violation that carries a two-year sanction.
