Alejandra Jimenez Tests Positive For Banned Substances

Newly crowned WBC, WBO super middleweight champion Alejandra Jimenez has tested positive for banned substances in the aftermath of her huge title win over Franchon Crews-Dezurn earlier this month.

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya has already responded to the news.

Jimenez was pretty chunky as the WBC's heavyweight champion - and she made a remarkable physical transformation to get down to 168-pounds to challenge Crews-Dezurn.

Golden Boy did not reveal the banned substances in question.

"It is extremely unfortunate to learn that WBC and WBO super middleweight world champion Alejandra Jimenez (13-0-1, 9 KOs) has tested positive for banned substances after her title fight with Franchon Crews-Dezurn (6-2, 2 KOs) on January 11," said De La Hoya.

"As Franchon's promoter, we are incredibly disappointed for her as she worked incredibly hard to defend her titles.  However, our job is to ensure the safety of our fighters both inside and outside of the ring. Thus, we have always insisted and supported testing through the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) for all of our world championship fights. Jimenez's fight against Franchon Crews-Dezurn is no exception. Now our job is to find justice for Franchon by working closely with the WBC and the WBO in order to re-instate her as a world champion."

[QUOTE=theface07;20346892]Why? How is that a reasonable excuse? Everyone knows about the Mexican beef situation. There are other kinds of meat you can eat. Plus, a lot of boxers nowadays are big on pasta along with chicken and fish.[/QUOTE] Mexicans don't…

Educate yourself. No one is attacking legit WOMEN who may look or sound masculine. If you have or had daughters, as I do, I doubt you want them in the ring with a dude who decides to be a woman.…
