The World Boxing Council Board of Governors has made their final
decision about the post fight positive drug test for marijuana by Julio
Cesar Chavez Jr, after his September 15 title fight against Sergio
Having accepted and expressed regret for what he did, including his
hand written apology to fans, as posted below, Chavez Jr displayed his
positive mentality on this matter, which makes it unnecessary for the
WBC to examine the second urine sample. Chavez Jr will have an audience
with the WBC, as indicated by the rules, if desired.
The WBC fined Chavez Jr $20,000 USD. This sum will be donated to a medical center that cares for children with cancer.

The WBC has also decided to suspend him for an undefined time, so he
can enter a rehab center. And we want official confirmation that he’s so
doing. The WBC will open its doors once again to Julio Cesar Chavez Jr,

Below is a statement by Julio Cesar Jr regarding the matter:
“Any explanation or justification that I try to give about the recent
events will be of no use. That is why I want to say that I’m totally
responsible of my actions, as well as the consequences thereof”.
“I want to apologize to all the people who felt offended by my actions. I made them, and only I should face the consequences
“I can say that I will come out of this, and it will help me to become stronger, I will do my very best to change.
“This begins a new stage in my career. I will train towards achieving
new targets, one of which is without doubt the rematch with Sergio
“I want to thank the support given to me by the people who love me, and who look up to me. Thank you for your time”.
