South African boxer banned for 2 years for steroids.

South African boxer Jared Lovett has been banned for two years after testing positive for steroids.

Lovett tested positive for the anabolic steroid stanozolol on July 11, 2009, after his loss on points to Thomas Oosthuizen in a bout for the IBO Light Heavyweight Youth Belt.

The South African Institute for Drug-Free Sport held a hearing on the case last month and announced Lovett’s two-year ban on Thursday.

The ban lasts until July 2011.

The 23-year-old Lovett, nicknamed “The Storm”, told South African newspaper The Sowetan on Friday that he will take the punishment “on the chin.”
