OtG wraps up the BOXiNG Weekend. Deontay Wilder is breathing sigh of after Alexander Povetkin tested dirty for the recently banned substance meldonium, a little over one week out from their WBC Heavyweight Championship clash. The fight Wilder and his team so desperately avoided, is in limbo. If Wilder takes the fight and loses, his loss will be forgiven with the position, "He lost to a drug cheat." If Wilder wins the fight, "He beat a cheater." If he chooses not to fight, "Povetkin is a cheater and didn't deserve to fight for the title."

Even if Wilder gets stretched out and is looking up at lights from a horizontal position, he becomes millions of dollars richer. It's win-win-win-win for Wilder. All that remains to be seen is whether he takes his victory lap on Twitter or through Moscow in a wheelchair.

The OtG Team previews the Erislandy Lara vs Vanes Martirosyan doubleheader featuring the Austin Trout vs Jermall Charlo grudge match and more.
