Promociones del Pueblo, representatives of Marco Antonio Rubio, claim WBC middleweight champion Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. violated the WBC regulation that stipulates that in title fights the fighters must leave a urine sample for drug testing with the doctor of the local commission, in this case Texas. According to Team Veneno Rubio “at the end of the fight, in a very suspicious way, Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. practically fled from the dressing room without leaving a sample to be medically evaluated later.”
Team Veneno Rubio further charges that the attitude of Chavez Jr. and his team is very suspicious, as if they are trying to hide something. They question why during the press conference when Chavez was asked why he had not left a urine sample for examination, he chose to ignore that question while answering other comfortable questions. They also allege that the question was asked to WBC President Jose Sulaiman, whom they claim shrugged his shoulders and said “we forgot.”
Recalling Chavez’ fight in December 2009 with Troy Rowland where drug testing detected a diuretic called furosemide that led to Chavez getting a seven month suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Promociones del Pueblo wants Chavez Jr. to immediately submit to the still pending urine test as there are illegal substances that are stored in the body for six months and an analysis can still uncover doping.
Rubio promoter Oswaldo Kuchle stated “The WBC must respond to this because the people on the champion’s team bypassed the rules, generating a huge controversy which questions the victory of the current middleweight champion.”
