Oleksandr Usyk bout in the heavyweight division is in peril after Saturdays rival Tyrone Spong returned an doping test, says promoter Eddie Hearn.
Usyk, 32, amassed all four world titles at his move and cruiserweight up a division has been highly anticipated.
However, Surinamese-Dutch fighter Spongs position is in doubt after Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (Vada) testing.
We have book opponents standing , tweeted Hearn.
We have been approached by Vada to notify us that there has been an adverse finding in Tyrone Spongs evaluation. It has been sent to the State of Illinois commission.
Hearn said therell be an upgrade on Tuesday.
Usyk is scheduled to face Spong at the Wintrust Arena of Chicago within his first departure since stopping Britains Tony Bellew at November, when he defended all four world cruiserweight titles.
Spong spent a lot of his combat career and also competed before winning his first 14 struggles as a fighter in kickboxing.
Vada needs fighters or promoters to pay for testing for the duration of a struggle build-up and works in boxing and MMA. It stated Spong was part of its testing programme on 20 September.
The Las Vegas-based Vada has earned a glowing reputation in boxing and has been accountable for tests which caused the likes of heavyweight Jarrell Miller and Mexicos SaulCanelo Alvarez facing bans.
