WBO heavyweight champion Joseph Parker missed a drug test earlier this year as a part of the WBC’s Clean Boxing Program, though his promoter has moved to explain the issue.

The WBC – whose Program is administered by Vada – confirmed that Parker missed a drug test after his May 6 victory over Razvan Cojanu.

However a spokesperson for Duco Events, Parker’s promoter, confirmed to Stuff that the missed test was merely an oversight.
