Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. didn’t disclose that he had used or was using any substances, prescription or otherwise, prior to his Sept. 15 fight with middleweight champion Sergio Martinez, according to Keith Kizer, executive director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, who spoke to BoxingScene.com via email on Friday morning.

Chavez tested positive for marijuana metabolites. The 26-year-old has blamed a prescription medication he took prior to the decision loss, according to a report that ran earlier today on BoxingScene.com.

"I'm not a drug addict, I have never smoked marijuana,” Chavez was quoted as saying on Mexican television. “For years I have had insomnia, so I went to the doctor and he prescribed some drops for me that contained cannabis. I stopped taking them before the fight with 'Maravilla' Martinez, and I didn't think I was going to test positive."

Kizer said that a hearing on Chavez will probably occur near the end of October.

Remember how many people were saying Julio Jr would vacate instead of face Martinez? Remember how many said Martinez would KO Chavez within a few rounds? At least he showed he had the balls to face Martinez, something Cotto, Mayweather, or Pacquiao wont do.

He's obviously lying, but even if he's not - how fvcking stupid is he?? He's just a spoiled baby.

Weed pills? I heard of weed cookies, weed brownies, weed butter, weed candy. Must be hard to get it in a pill, and expensive. Maybe Sulaiman is right, Jr is just throwing his money away. Jr is buying weed pills when it's cheaper and safer to smoke it raw, and get the same effect, maybe.

Looks like Chavez and his people are going the Peterson way. Get a doctor's note and claim that you forgot about your "meds".
