Schaefer intimated there may be some hope for the fight because of the
subsequent negative test.

However, Schaefer expressed dismay over the late notice of the positive test,
with Peterson’s camp having been informed of the findings from the ‘A’
sample on April 13. Yet it was not until April 30 that Peterson requested
the ‘B’ result to be verified.

Schaefer said: “Why they did not ask for an expedited process for the B sample
is a mystery.”

Nevada State Athletic Commission executive director Keith Kizer, said last
night he was told by Peterson’s attorney Jeff Fried that the fighter tested
positive for surgically implanted “testosterone pellets”.
