Joan Guzman Suspended For Eight Months, Won't Retire
By Jhonny Gonzalez
Former champion Joan Guzman (30-0, 17KOs) has revealed that the Nevada State Athletic Commission has issued a stiff eight month suspension for his recent drug test failure. The Nevada Commission imposed the suspension because Guzman tested positive in a doping test for last month's two round TKO of Jason Davis. The fight was changed to a no-contest. Joan tested positive for a diuretic called furosemide, a substance prohibited by WADA because it can mask other drugs which are not allowed.
Despite the suspension and his weight issues and being dropped by promotional firm Golden Boy Promotions, Guzman, 34-years-old, will not retire from the sport. He was due to have a contest at 140-pounds. He missed the mark by weighing 144.5 for Davis.
"There is no reason to retire. I will keep training hard for the duration of the suspension," said Guzman to Prim Cadet.
