As reported by Boxing Scene’s Jake Donovan, the legend’s son, Julio César Chávez Jr., received a three-year suspension by the Nevada Commission for refusing to take an anti-doping test in October 2019.
As it turned out, this past Wednesday, a panel of five people voted in favor of the sanction proposed by Mike Detmer, Nevada deputy attorney, on behalf of the director of the Nevada Athletic Commission, Bob Bennett.
According to what Donovan explained, the suspension will last until October 24, 2022, in addition to the fact that he will have to pay more than $ 3,000 in fine and will have to undergo an anti-doping program for the sanction to be lifted.
The World Anti-Doping Agency asked Chávez Jr. for a urinalysis in Hollywood, California, but the son of the Mexican legend refused to do it. Therefore, the agency notified the Nevada Commission, which suspended the boxer.
