For the second time in his career Julio Cesar Chavez Jr
., who lost to the broken hands of Sergio Martinez
on Saturday night at the Thomas & Mack Center in Las Vegas, has tested positive for a banned substance, this time marijuana
This being his second offense in Nevada, Chavez could face a year’s suspension and the loss of up to 100% of his purse, which was $3 million, before any pay-per-view revenue he receives.
In 2009, he tested positive for Furosemide, a diuretic used to help lose weight or as a masking agent for steroids. The NSAC suspended him for seven months and he was fined $10,000.
You might say big deal its only weed. Well marijuana, of course, is illegal in addition to being banned by the commission.
Chavez is just a spoiled child who thinks he could get away with anything. His lack of commitment is a slap in the face to all boxing fans. Lets not forget a week before his fight with Marco Antonio Rubio, Chavez was charged with DUI in Los Angeles which he reached a plea deal and received three years probation and was ordered to attend Alcoholics Anonymous.
“Of course, we’re disappointed in him,” Top Ranks, CEO, Bob Arum said. “Hopefully, he can learn a lesson here and next time get in top shape for the fight. But it shows you the immaturity here. He needs to grow up.”
Chavez is only 26-years-old and its already going in the wrong path. Soon he will realize not everything is served in a silver platter.
