LAS VEGAS (AP) — The Nevada State Athletic Commission has fined and suspended boxer Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. over a failed drug test last year.
The 26-year-old Mexican fighter tested positive for marijuana in September after his first professional loss. Chavez (46-1-1) was suspended for 9 months and fined $900,000, which amounts to 30 percent of his $3 million purse for the fight against Sergio Martinez.
