By unanimous vote, the Nevada Athletic Commission suspended former WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. at least until a disciplinary hearing where Chavez will be asked to explain his positive test for marijuana following his September 15 fight with Sergio Martinez. With this being Junior’s second failed drug test in Nevada, he could receive a suspension longer than the seven months he received for the first offense.
