Sulaiman is Flipping His Top Over The Chavez Jr. Situation

By Ronnie Nathanielsz

World Boxing Council president Don Jose Sulaiman stressed today that the WBC has not yet received any notification from the Nevada Boxing Commission nor any laboratory regarding the reported positive doping test involving former world middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr.

The WBC president was visibly upset over the unverified claim that Chavez Jr. had tested positive for marijuana.

Medical authorities consider marijuana a mild drug compared to other illegal drugs such as cocaine, shabu as well as performance enhancers.

Sulaiman said “ whoever released that note has committed a serious violation of confidentiality. According to anti doping regulations, only the boxer, the Boxing Commission and the World Boxing Council, can be notified about the positive results, in order to give the boxer to have the chance to appoint a representative to be present at the opening of the second test, which has to be made in a special laboratory appointed by the WADA.”

Sulaiman made it clear that the WBC has always waited for the "B" test to be sent to laboratories at UCLA, to continue the regulatory process via which a final decision is reached.

Don Jose also took issue with a statement attributed to Top Rank promoter Bob Arum. He said “I also want to refute what my friend, the promoter Bob Arum, said to ESPN about that there's no promoter or boxers who could pass the marijuana test, including himself, to which I'm absolutely and totally opposed. Because it is an irresponsible statement. I do not accept that all boxers and boxing people have consumed drugs.

Don Jose emphasized "In the 50 years of history of the WBC there have been 13 cases in all its fights and only 2 have been in championship bouts…Boxing is clean of drugs.“

"Finally” Sulaiman said “there are two types of personalities in the boxing commissions in the world. One that consists of commissioners who only care about guilt and punishment. But there are others, many of them in the WBC, that regardless of the punishment to be taken if rules are broken, that have a benevolent spirit. They help the boxer to try to rehabilitate and not just to be thrown it into an abyss.”

The WBC president added "If the second test indicates that the first test was false there is nothing to pursue. But if the second test confirms the rumors, and Chavez accepts his guilt, the WBC will impose a punishment for Chavez Jr,  in which he can be subjected to medical rehabilitation and then the WBC would open the door for him to resume his brilliant career."

He said "We hope that the Nevada Boxing Commission informs the WBC about developments , because while they only exclusively act on the violation concerning the specific instance, the WBC has its responsibility for the professional life of the boxers.”

This doesn't even sound real, sounds like lines from a comedy about a corrupt politician.
