WBC: Chavez Jr. Fined $20,000, Directed To Enter Rehab

The WBC Board of Governors have made their final decision about the positive test for marijuana by Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, surrounding his last fight on September 15th against Sergio Martinez.

Having accepted and expressed regret for what he did, including his hand written apology to fans, as posted below, Julio Jr shows his positive mentality on this matter, which makes it unnecessary for the WBC to examine the second urine sample. Chavez Jr will have an audience with the WBC, as indicated by our rules, if desired.

The WBC fines Chavez Jr $20,000 USD. This sum will be donated to a medical center that cares for children with cancer.

The WBC has also decided to suspend him for an undefined time, so he can enter a rehab center. And we want official confirmation that he's so doing. The WBC will open its doors once again to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr, so he can continue his successful career when he feels he can return. The suspension will last as long as the rehab center advises.

The Nevada Boxing Commission is independent of this matter, due to the fact that it did not have the courtesy to work with the WBC in this fight.

The antidoping rules in the WBC, try to prevent boxers fighting under the influence of drugs, and that is why sanctions are applied. But...we also give boxers the chance to continue a career path, after they undergo rehab. Our goal is to help them and not condemn them, as modern society does.

Below are the words of Julio Cesar regarding this matter:

“Any explanation or justification that I try to give about the recent events will be of no use. That is why I want to say that I’m totally responsible of my actions, as well as the consequences thereof”.

“I want to apologize to all the people who felt offended by my actions. I made them, and only I should face the consequences”

“I can say that I will come out of this, and it will help me to become stronger, I will do my very best to change.

“This begins a new stage in my career. I will train towards achieving new targets, one of which is without doubt the rematch with Sergio “Maravilla” Martinez.

I want to thank the support given to me by the people who love me, and who look up to me. Thank you for your time”.

If going 12 rounds with THEE middleweight champion of the world, taking his thumping for 11 rounds, and almost destroying him in the 12th, is in any way due to the weed Jr smoked, I want a lifetime supply. He…
