Sulaiman Pleads With NSAC To Reduce Fine on Chavez Jr.

By James Blears

WBC President Jose Sulaiman is asking the Nevada State Athletic Commission, to reduce its whopping $900,000 dollars fine levied upon Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. after a post fight test showed he had marijuana in his system.
 
The flak, followed the WBC middleweight title fight at the Thomas and Mack Center in Las Vegas, against Argentina's Sergio Martinez, last September - in which Julio Jr lost the tile. He conceded he'd taken marijuana, but insisted the substance was present in a medicication he used to help him combat insomina.
 
Jose Sulaiman said that Julio Jr. is not addicted to drugs and this is not a performance inhancing drug. He described the fine as harsh, only exceeded by the one handed down to Mike Tyson after the Evander Holyfield incident. He also said the people of Mexico are against this decison to dock 30 percent of Julio Jr's purse.
 
The WBC fined Julio Cesar Chavez twenty thousand dollars for this, and said he could fight again, subject to a doctor's letter confirming any marijuana issue has been completely resolved.
 
Jose Sulaiman confirms that the WBC is going to write a letter to the Nevada Athletic Commission about the fine decison. That ruling also bans Chavez Jr. for nine months, but the ban is back-dated to the fight.
 
The Nevada Athletic Commission had previously banned Julio Cesar Jr. for seven months, following a failed test after the 2009 fight against Troy Rowland. The result was finally changed to a no contest. That test showed a postive reading for a banned diuretic, Furosemide.
 
Don Jose added that Julio Jr. has the WBC's support concerning this issue, but he's disappointed Julio Jr. has made no attempt to contact the WBC or him.
