The reason Scotland's Kenny Anderson was stripped of his British super middleweight title has now finally emerged. He failed a doping test back in November last year.

The 30-year old from Edinburgh has not fought since he defeated former WBC champion Robin Reid to capture the vacant title back in October 2012.

It has been reported that the drug in question was Amphetamine (street name speed) and the boxer alleges that his coffee was likely spiked with it and that he had no knowledge of ingesting such a drug.

The appeal rejected the notion and handed him a two year ban stretching back to the date he was tested and will see him unable to fight again until late 2014.

The drug is known to stunt appetite and give a user immense energy.
