Former welterweight titleholder Andre Berto has tested positive for a banned substance, putting his scheduled June 23 rematch with fellow former titlist Victor Ortiz in jeopardy.

Berto tested positive for the steroid norandrosterone, a source with direct knowledge of the test results told ESPN.com on Friday.

Promoter Lou DiBella told ESPN.com he was unsure of what Berto tested positive for but confirmed the result.

"I know he tested positive. I learned it in the last half-hour," DiBella said. "I have nothing else to say. I don't know all of the details, so I have nothing else to say."

Ortiz and Berto had agreed to use the Las Vegas-based Voluntary Anti-Doping Association for random blood and urine testing in the lead up to their fight at the Staples Center in Los Angeles. Showtime had made the bout the centerpiece of its boxing schedule for the first half of the year.

Showtime is proceeding as though the fight will be canceled. A network source told ESPN.com that Showtime is already discussing with Golden Boy Promotions about possible replacement opponents to face Ortiz.

Berto submitted to a random urine test May 2, according to the source. The "A" test came back positive last week. The "B" sample also came back positive Friday, triggering VADA to alert the California State Athletic Commission, DiBella and Golden Boy's Richard Schaefer, Ortiz's promoter.

In April 2011, Ortiz outslugged Berto to win a welterweight title in one of the year's most exciting fights. The rematch was supposed to take place Feb. 11 in Las Vegas, but Berto suffered a biceps injury, forcing the postponement to June 23.

This is the second high-profile positive drug test in the past two weeks. Junior welterweight titlist Lamont Peterson tested positive for synthetic testosterone following a March 19 random test in the lead up to his rematch with Amir Khan. They were scheduled to meet Saturday night in Las Vegas, but the fight was canceled last week.

ESPN - BOXING

Failed both samples...commission wasn't informed of any doctor issued meds (same as peterson) I'm sure. Floyd looking more and more like a winner in his efforts to force testing across the board.

..and berto tried to say Ortiz was dirty (which I'm sure he did cycle) so he goes and tries to run a cycle..timed it wrong and got caught. Morons.

If you want to read an absolutely douche bag comment on this, I will point you to none other than the Father of all Douche Bags...yes, the incomperable Bob 'the Bobfather' Arum. He basically makes it all about money and that it's okay if the substance is detected after the match because everything's already taken place. Yes Bob, you soulless, money hungry, crazy person, the boxer's health has already been jeopardised and you've made your money. Sickening.
Here's a bit of his mindless opinion on this issue over on ringtv.com.

"I'm not laughing at Richard Schaefer, I really feel for him. Everybody has to sit down and sort out this situation. Something is happening that is very wrong here. It's not being sorted out. What's going on here is crazy. It's one thing to test after the event, and the fighter goes before the commission, and he's fined. The event already has taken place. Those things get sorted out."

This doesn't surprise me.. which should say more about arum himself then what I think about him

If anything old man bobby is a sponsor for cheaters and not taking fighters health into account (chavez Jr rehydrating to light heavy and fighting middleweights and also skipping his post fight drug tests and getting caught on diarretics, pacs knuckles pads, margs plasters, putting marg in the ring knowing his eye could be punched out any moment)

Arum trying to make the case that the canceled fights should have gone on despite testing positive for banned substances. Makes no sense.
