Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. has been suspended by the Nevada commission after avoiding a random drug test. His potential December 20th fight with Daniel Jacobs could be over before it began. But then, this is boxing...

...Bob Bennett, the executive director of the Nevada commission, told ESPN on Friday that Chavez has been temporarily suspended and would be required to appear before the commission at a hearing scheduled for Nov. 20.

Bennett declined to discuss the reason for the suspension, but it was because Chavez declined to submit to a random drug test last week when a tester from the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association showed up at the Wild Card Boxing Club in Hollywood, California, where Chavez has been training under the tutelage of Freddie Roach, to collect a sample and was denied. VADA reported the incident to the Nevada commission and Chavez was issued a suspension.

"I have nothing to hide. I'm ready for any test," Chavez told ESPN Deportes about turning down the test. "The anti-doping guy came here (to the gym) angry. He did not show any credentials as they are supposed to do. Any day I can do the test if they guarantee me it's the same way for Jacobs. I don't understand because I have nothing official for the fight."

This reminds me of an incident that happened with me. I had nothing to hide. But when the officer showed up with the breathalyzer, he did not say that he was a police officer and he seemed very angry and unbecoming of a public servant. I had just crushed his horse's legs with my chopper, which was unavoidable and the fault of the horse, who was near the road that of which I was supposed to be on and undertaking of my own free will. If he had simply demonstrated to me that he was also treating someone else with random screening, like another person also, it would not have been a problem, as I have said before, because of the fact that I have nothing to hide, as I have previously indicated with my prior statements of which that I have made. That is what I will tell the judge and I will be vindicated, is what I said, if in fact he and his horse were in fact police officers of the law. I spent six long, unjust years in prison after that, because my family name is not powerful where I come from and of which that I have been living in residence of from then. This is my story.

Ah, the old "The pee collector was a jerk" excuse. We've all been there.

Yeah. Eddie was talking about this on a recent IFL video.

Chavez won't be licensed in Nevada, but will in Arizona, and will sign up to VADA.

Hearn needs to decide whether he cares about peds and testing or not.

Slags off Miller, but happy to have loads of other convicted cheats on his cards.

Slags off the US system that allows a fighter to be banned in one state but OK to work next door, then does this.

Slags off Canelo, but is happy to have him on DAZN fighting Matchroom fighters. Etc, etc.

Either you care or you don't.

Round and about

No one cares bro.

It's all smoke and mirrors to placate fans and sponsors and keep the gravy train rolling.

It's in everyone's interests to maintain the status quo.

I care if fighters are on peds. I think most people do, although it seems less of an issue for some.

I do think the sport is at a tipping point now. The cheating has become worse, and more prevalent in recent years, but if there was a concerted effort then the trend could be reversed.

As usual though, everyone in boxing is short-sighted, self-interested, and disorganised.

With no central body there is no control. You therefore need the people with the power to change things to act.

If the tv companies and promoters stopped working with cheats, then the risk/reward ratio would change, and people would be less likely to do it.

But it needs to be unified. DAZN, Goldenboy and Matchroom are too scared to stop working with Canelo, cause he will just go to ESPN, or Showtime, or someone else.

They are all only interested in their own short-term returns. As usual.

Next time someone fails and gets a slap on the wrist, or its brushed under the carpet, they will wring their hands and blame someone else. All while pretending they actually give a damn.

Ps. I realise i am pissing into the wind hoping that the ped issue will be fixed, or that the promoters and TV companies care about anything other than their bottom line.

Still annoying though.
