The World Council said yesterday it had suspended Oliver McCall, their former heavyweight champion, for refusing to take a drug test after his title fight with Frank Bruno on Saturday.

The WBC released a statement from its headquarters in Mexico City in which it said the American fighter had "refused to submit to obligatory anti-doping tests after his defeat last Saturday to Frank Bruno at Wembley. This is a serious lack of discipline and we are investigating the matter ... meanwhile, Oliver McCall is provisionally suspended from the WBC."

The British Board of Council will also be looking into the incident, according to the WBC.
