LONDON (AP)

British heavyweight Ali Adams has been suspended for two years after testing positive for steroids.

UK Anti-Doping says the Iraqi-born professional tested positive for stanozolol following his four-round loss to former Olympic champion Audley Harrison on May 26.

These babes can't get enough ringside action.

The ban will run until June 13, 2014.

UK Anti-Doping legal director Graham Arthur says the positive finding resulted from ''a targeted, intelligence-led test.''

Adams (13-4-1) contended the stanozolol may have come from medication he was using for a neck injury.

But Arthur says stanozolol ''is banned at all times in sport, there is no reason for it to be found in an athlete's system.''
