Campbell & Williams, a Las Vegas based law firm representing the interests of Julio Cesar Chavez Jr., issued an answer on Monday in response to the complaint from the Nevada State Athletic Commission.

The NSAC filed a complaint against Chavez after the boxer tested positive for marijuana in the aftermath of his twelve round decision loss to Sergio Martinez on September 15th, 2012.

The attorneys for Chavez have requested a suspension of six months and a maximum fine of $10,000.

Chavez, who is set to appear before the NSAC on a February hearing date, will not get off that lightly. The requests by Chavez's attorneys would have been considered if the circumstances were different, but this is his second testing violation in the state.

Back in November 2010, Chavez testing positive for a diuretic following a unanimous decision win over Troy Rowland. The NSAC suspended Chavez for seven months and fined him $10,000.

Sources familiar with the situation expect Chavez to receive at least a nine month suspension period, and certainly a bigger fine than $10,000.

Last year, UFC welterweight Nick Diaz was cracked hard over his positive marijuana violation. Diaz, a repeat offender in the state, was hit with a one year suspension and forked over a $60,000 fine.

Chavez's suspension would run from the date of his fight with Martinez. If the NSAC hits him with at least nine months, Chavez will be capable of fighting again by June 15th.

If a fighter is suspended buy a comission for violations the ruling is upheld by the Association of boxing comissions(ABC) so all commisions in the U.S. will stand by the ruling. Yes he may fight elsewhere where the comissions have no power(like Mexico). But after the suspension time has passed h...
