Lightweight prospect Mickey Bey Jr. has tested positive for a highly elevated level of testosterone, according to Keith Kizer of the Nevada State Athletic Commission.
Bey’s testosterone to epitestosterone ratio was greater than 30:1 — Nevada rules allow for a maximum of 6:1.
Bey fought Feb. 2 at the Cosmopolitan of Las Vegas, scoring a third-round knockout of Robert Rodriguez. Bey improved to 19-0-1 with 10 knockouts, while Rodriguez fell to 7-3 (3 KOs).
Bey, a 29-year-old from Cleveland, is facing a complaint for disciplinary action from the Nevada commission, according to Kizer.
All of the other boxers on the card tested negative for banned substances, according to Kizer.
