FEARED fighting twins Jermell and Jermall Charlo normally stand for double trouble but today they simply find themselves in trouble after missing a WBC anti-doping test conducted by VADA (Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency).

Neither has tested positive for a prohibited substance, nor will they be stripped of their respective titles, but the WBC have said, in a statement, there will be inevitable penalties handed to the Charlo boys for their failure to adhere to the rules.

Jermell, the WBC super-welterweight champion, is set to defend his title against Tony Harrison on December, while Jermall, the WBC interim middleweight champion, defends his belt against Willie Monroe on the same night. Both fights will still go ahead.
