Carlos Cuadras Enters Rehab To Deal With Drug Issues

By Miguel Rivera

As reported last week, former world champion Carlos 'Príncipe' Cuadras, 29-years-old, was suspended by the World Boxing Council in connection to a violation of their Clean Boxing Program, which is run by the VADA testing group.

It was alleged that Cuadras refused to take a drug test.

The boxer was not being accused of taking performance enhancing drugs - but what transpired is that information surfaced that Cuadras has a problem with abusing recreational drugs.


The boxer has since entered rehab to deal with his issues, and has the full support of the WBC and their president Mauricio Sulaiman.

During a press conference in Mexico, in which the World Boxing Council handed out the green and gold belt to flyweight champion Cristofer Rosales González and paid tribute to former champion Érik Morales, Suliaman expressed his support for Cuadras and promised to stand by his side until he can recover his position as one of the main fighters in the national scene in Mexico.

"Carlos Cuadras is in a rehabilitation center, we are 100 percent in his corner, supporting him He is in a moment in his life that can happen to any of us, and we are supporting him and we will stand with him, until he arrives to the moment in which he is reincorporated in his normal life and in boxing," said Sulaiman to ESPN Deportes.

Cuadras (36-3-1, 27 KOs), who held the WBC super flyweight title, is on a two fight losing streak.

He lost a very close twelve round unanimous decision to Juan Francisco Estrada in September of 2017.

And then came back in February, hoping to bounce back from defeat, but he lost a ten round majority decision to McWilliams Arroyo in what was a big upset on the Superfly 2 card in Los Angeles.

The boxer is now 1-3 in his last four ring appearances.

Look at his back. I've been saying that. I mean, why would "recreational drugs" make him skip a test? If he tested positive for weed/coke/meth/whatever, people would be understanding that he's got a problem, but the fact he refused to…
