Don't worry about this, there are plenty of reasons why this probably came to light none of which suggest PED usage. For example:
1. Why start testing 10 days from a fight? How can you draw conclusive results from two samples basically separated days apart?
2. The initial bout contract may have included USADA testing, but the fight was cancelled when it was scheduled for the May/Cotto undercard when NSAC denied Winky a license. When it was rescheduled, there may have been a restructured contract without USADA and just a matter of confusion.
3. A certain writer is just giving lip service to get more information from an already biased source about certain fighters on the juice and to generate a witch hunt that gets more people to read their site (or sites). This is the most likely explanation.
Honestly, if it was a big deal at all, why isn't Winky demanding the tests be re-instated or he walks out? It's not a big deal and it's just someone trying to make a fire out of a puff of smoke.
In the meantime, check out "From Pillar to Post" on youtube if you haven't already. That's my shameless plug for the evening.
I can generally agree with your assessment...
But the notion of Winky walking away from a fight?? Now who the world would ever remotely think Winky of all people would back out a fight?
The absolute nerve... lmao..
