Well now that he has been given another Sulaiman Excuse for the POT in his system and is cleared to rematch Martinez.. lets see if he chickens out.. especially after Martinez said he wants Olympic Style Random Blood testing.. the same testing Mayweather and Cotto agreed too… Martinez should also make sure there’s a weight gain clause in the contract.. he’s screwed… :lol:Posted October 7, 2012 9:30 am
Tark – eating it, drinking it, who cares.. he was consuming it to mask all the other illegal sht in his PEDS filled System… since he clearly said he wasn’t smoking it… clear admission of trying to mask PEDs…Posted October 7, 2012 9:27 am
LMAO, look at the guy that is standing behind Chavez,………a vato , I had nothing to do with it, I knew nothing vato!…….LOL!Posted October 6, 2012 7:39 pm
The cat smoked a “J” so what?Posted October 6, 2012 7:37 pm
@ WTFer… Chavez didn’t say he ate it. You don’t eat tea my friend, you drink it … and marijuana is not an effective masking agent.. Why would you use a masking agent that’s banned and could lead to the confiscation of your entire purse??? Think about things like this before you run off.Posted October 6, 2012 7:30 pm
His claim that he was eating the pot and not smoking it proves he was trying to use it as a Masking agent and never expected it to be detected in the drug tests.. :wink:Posted October 6, 2012 6:39 pm
Macp… According to the National Institute on Drug Abuse marijuana use is addictive … Nicotine is also addictive. In fact, one of the hardest addictions to break.Posted October 6, 2012 5:43 pm

@Fat Freddies cat seems you know nothing about sport all you care about that is not harmful
He will never fill his famous father`s shoes.But he does have a natural talent for cheating and he is already one of the greatest cheaters to come along in quite sometime .If he didn`t have his dad`s last name and Jose Suluiman protecting him he would be a marijuana farmer growing pot out in California.Posted October 6, 2012 10:31 am

Smoking pot is a lot less harmful then drinking hard booze and more peaceful. So whats wrong with a little herb if you are uptight and want to relax, especially if you are nervous. I would not recommend it before a bout but in the comfort of your own home and with people you are comfortable with it can be very enjoyable, All these other drugs and meds are much mor toxic, but i guess the big drug companys know what’s best for us,Posted October 6, 2012 9:39 am
Pathetic. Be a man.Posted October 6, 2012 7:30 am
Is not marijuana used as a masking agent to hide other more potent Performance Enhancing Drugs that may have been taken prior to fight night?
Just a point. He gets caught for the lesser of the two evils but not for the PEDS….
I’m sure someone on here will know all the facts of how marijuana is used as masking agent.
Id this is true, I personally believe he should be punished as if he was found using a PED as they thus relate to one and the same thing – cheatiing!!!!
An 18 month ban should be mandatory, tagged on to his other misdemeanours, which should result in a ban of at least 2 years to show the world that boxing means business.Posted October 6, 2012 6:31 am

pot is not addictive. I hate seeing idiots say it is. It is habit forming, like visiting this site or facebook. Show me a baby born addicted to weed and then we’ll talk about marijuana being addictive. smfhPosted October 6, 2012 3:47 am
Cognitive behavioral therapy — replacing worries about not sleeping with positive thoughts—works better than marijuana tea for sleep and for jumpy nerves in general.. The best therapists are relatively expensive but Chavez can easily afford the cost …. Marijuana is addictive. There are no regulations or controls on the quality, consistency, or potency of the drug, and that’s the main problem with it.Posted October 6, 2012 3:40 am

Weed should be removed off the banned substance list in boxing, basketball and all sports since it’s not performance enhancing. It’s a recreational drug with no side effects. The martinis I drank tonight probably did more damage than if I’d lit up a bong. Jr is a pothead. Fine. But he tested positive now he’s gotta pay the price.Posted October 5, 2012 11:58 pm
“The question is did Chavez Jr. get a prescription to use the marijuana, and is so why didn’t he show it to the Nevada Commission?” No, these aren’t the questions. THE question is, “How many more times are you going to cheat, Jr.?
They aren’t the answers either. Marijuana is a banned substance, both by the WBC and the NSAC. Doesn’t matter if he had a prescription or if a monkey stuffed it up his butt when he wasn’t looking.Posted October 5, 2012 11:33 pm
Chavez Jr is lying just like Lamont Peterson was lying and Andre Berto was lying. Each of them uses those drugs routinely. They got caught and now are denying everything. BS. Ironic Jr is the only one not testing positive PEDs while these other dirt bags did.Posted October 5, 2012 11:29 pm
“i’ve been smokn’ MJ every day since 1966..and I’ve never found it to be addictive” LMAO! That’s the funniest damn post I have read in a long time!Posted October 5, 2012 11:23 pm
LOL! Get real Jr., you liar!! Besides, it doesn’t matter how you ingested it. WBC Rules state marijuana is a banned substance. Doesn’t matter how it got into your system. You’re just trying to minimize the issue because you don’t want to admit you smoke pot. Fool!Posted October 5, 2012 11:22 pm
Must have been those brownies someone made. Maybe it was the same ones the olympian ate.Posted October 5, 2012 11:11 pm
Chavez was unprofessional in taking marijuana, and lack of professionalism is his major problem as a fighter – he is otherwise quite good. But since marijuana is not a PED (quite the contrary) I think we can go a little easy on him for this offense. He is only hurting himself.Posted October 5, 2012 10:19 pm
This is worse than ill Clinton’s ” I smoked it but never inhaled”Posted October 5, 2012 9:24 pm

besides…Chavez Jr got beat from piller to post …all night long….he lost the match……clearly.
Still that “Hail Mary ‘ punch landed by a guy who had been tatood….for the enrire night….by Martinez…….showed that Chavez Jr can still put meat in seats……’nuff saidPosted October 5, 2012 8:32 pm

I heard that one of the most famous Olympic Ski champions….did a
C’mon …if we put everyone who smoked..ate..made tea;…baked..and like that….
That Chavez Jr walked out of that ring…with that caliber of competition he faced….is what makes the kid marketable…..see the last two rounds of this one……tell me I’m lie’nPosted October 5, 2012 8:17 pm
It was the heart of Chavez Jr…that saved his career….not to mention the calibre of competiton……smokn’ a joint..or being in the same car….that ain’t helping….just hurting.
I don’t think it is illegal to show up at a boxing match …with a cupla belts in you ……say…six ounces of Jack Daniels…….but you’d be dumb to do that….as it would impair your effortsPosted October 5, 2012 8:16 pm
I don’t care if the son of …..smoked or inhaled…or dipped his wick into so many broads that were smoking…he got it by osmosis ffs !!
What …like the snow boarder from Canada…is MJ helping the performance….if anything….a joint before an Olympic Snow Board run ..or a top flight..Pro Boxing contest….it would be a detrement to re actions…weight loss…and any and all things that could be described as DRUG/STEROIDS ENHANCED PERFORMANCE. How cum is dat ???
Smoke or no smoke…CHavez got beat bad…but his last effort at the end of the fight saved him …..He is still marketablePosted October 5, 2012 8:13 pm
Chavez could always go the ‘stud defence’….”Your Honour….I made love to so many ladies over a period of time…I must have absorbed what these ladies were smoking…by osmosis……due to the time and fluid exchange we were intertwind…..as if my member was dipped into an environment that may have been involved with inhaling Mary jane…in a room when She was waiting her turn ???!!!Posted October 5, 2012 8:05 pm
i still don’t get what all the sanctimonious fuss is about(?). I don’t know how much Junior compromised his fighting ability (if at all) but he did violate the rules and should thank his lucky stars that he lost v. Martinez or being busted would’ve hurt that much more. otherwise, there have been plenty of “laws” and policies that were strictly enforced in the past that we now look back on as utterly ridiculous. i think that criminalizing marijuana use is already one of those laws.Posted October 5, 2012 7:48 pm
I hear ya, but we have a pretty good system in California. It’s like the states that have state run liquor stores. You need a license (aka prescription) just to get in to a pot shop. It’s all taxable and benefits the state. Plus less legal costs associated with prosecuting people for smoking weed.Posted October 5, 2012 7:14 pm
don’t step on the grass samPosted October 5, 2012 7:12 pm
philly shell – Haha! For real. But it’ll never happen, they can’t monitor the sales, which means they won’t be able to tax on it like they do with RX drugs or cigarettes….so, making it illegal is the only way they can make money (fining people).Posted October 5, 2012 6:58 pm

There’s a new designer Russian drug named Krokodil that’s pretty popular among the Russkies at the moment and it literally eats away at your flesh like you’ve been attacked by a zombie. It’s a home-made synthetic cannabis meso-androgenene-meso-hydrogonax psychostimulant hallucinogenic compound and the effects are meant to be very similar to ingesting neat skunk weed/Posted October 5, 2012 5:28 pm
Gonzo The Dragonborn
Make no mistake about it either, cannabis is a killer. I think it’s the third biggest killer after tobacco and alcohol. Heroins, cocaines, barbiturates, methadones, amphetamines, and ketamines are all actually less harmful for you than cannabis when taken in a comparable dose. Actually, some of these new drugs on the market like meths and bath salts seem to be preety bad and are probably just as dangerous as cannabis if not slightly more. Magical mushrooms are pretty bad if taken in a large dose too.Posted October 5, 2012 5:18 pm
Chavez denies smoking marijuana? Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha ha!!! What a joke! Everyone that gets busted always comes up with the DUMBEST excuses. I’m sure he told the commission and the promoter and everyone else involved before he fought that he was drinking this Marijuana tea. Ha ha ha ha ha! Come clean boy, and get yourself together.Posted October 5, 2012 4:59 pm
I do this all the time as a Californian I approve.Posted October 5, 2012 4:43 pm
Chavez didn’t “smoke weed” he made a tea and drank it… You’ll still test positive however it gets into your system…but for some reason his brain didn’t comprehend this because his doctor recommended the tea … His doctor isn’t a boxer and doesn’t keep up on banned substances … I hope Chavez doesn’t think, “I don’t get it. Tea isn’t on the banned substances list.” He’s really in trouble if that’s the case.Posted October 5, 2012 4:39 pm
Rodney…you fkin idiot are you high now??? If you smoke weed it will slow your thinking down…so if ur high and get in a car accident and break your neck it won’t hurt cause your high??? Lol.Posted October 5, 2012 4:29 pm
regardless of the effects of marijuana as a performing enhancer or relaxant; you get hit and you are stoned, you are more likely to take the shot better than if you were sober. Its a relaxant, but it has also been proven that people that smoke marijuana and drive; are more aware of their surroundings and more attentive and drive safer than sober drivers. I can not believe the world is coming to idiots on this site actually suggesting PEDS are ok.Posted October 5, 2012 4:09 pm
Sr was smoking up and Jr inhaled the air around him, hahahahahahaand the whole drug rehab story on 24/7 what a joke. He so smokes weed listen to his laugh, and hello people it took Jr 7 rounds to wake up, I bet he was stoned vs MartinezPosted October 5, 2012 4:02 pm
Titopa-MY point remains the same. Some marijuana makes you lazy and some makes you want to be active….Evidentally he smoked the lazy stuff.Posted October 5, 2012 4:00 pm
philly shell – It’s against federal law to smoke or ingest marijuana. It can’t be legalized by commissions.Posted October 5, 2012 3:41 pm
They should remove pot from the banned substances list… It’s not a performance enhancer, unless you’re in an eating competitingPosted October 5, 2012 3:38 pm
TARK – Exactly! People don’t understand that Federal law supersedes State law…and Marijuana is still ONLY legal for medical purposes, something you use in the comfort of your own home, you can’t cruise (or walk) around with a joint hanging from your lip without getting fined.Posted October 5, 2012 3:36 pm
“Athletes who are tested are ultimately public figures and marketed as role models.” …. Guys like Ward, De La Hoya, and Pacquiao marketed themselves that way.. Guys like Mayweather, Tyson, and Mayorga marketed themselves as brash, antiestablishment, alternative living badasses …. Chavez is right when he says marijuana is legal in California. But it’s legal by state law—which is trumped by federal law, which still bans it’s cultivation, distribution, and use.Posted October 5, 2012 3:21 pm

This boy,Chavez Jnr. really lives in the Land of Denial, from failing to turn up to pre-fight and post-fight testing to DUI and taking diuretics, he is a blight on the landscape of boxing!Posted October 5, 2012 2:43 pm
Ok So now the excuses of Chavez Chicken Jr. being High and slow because he was high on pot as the reason Martinez was able to so easily hit him and light his ASS up can go away.. :lol:Posted October 5, 2012 2:27 pm
CORRECTION….RATHER than accept it.Posted October 5, 2012 2:26 pm
By the way I think he’d probably deny getting SPANKED by Martinez TOO. Most people try to deflect fault whether than accept it.Posted October 5, 2012 2:25 pm
Either way it took him 3 weeks to manufacture a story which tells me that he is LYING. He smoked it and took time to do some research and bribe a doctor to side with him on his story. This is VERY transparent….Now if he had come out with this explanation the same day or the next day then I MIGHT believe him.Posted October 5, 2012 2:23 pm

Most who are proponents of taking Marijuana off of the banned substance list in boxing, are completely forgetting that the athletes who are tested are ultimately public figures and marketed as role models.
How many endorsements do you think any of these fighters would get if they were known pot smokers?
Most fighters in boxing cannot survive on purses alone and depend on sponsorship. No reputable business would be willing to endorse a fighter who is a proponent of the drug.
It is illegal, people!! And it doesn’t belong anywhere near the sport.Posted October 5, 2012 2:20 pm

Marijuana is awesome LOL. I smoke it regularly…as I’ve said many times, there’s NOTHING wrong with it IMO. My only concern was Chavez’s stupidity for not cleansing himself prior to the bout, I mean, it’s weed, it’s not going to help you (on the contrary, it will slow you down), but why would you even eff up your paycheck just to get high? I like weed, but if my job tested every time I clocked in then I’d sure as hell would give it up.Posted October 5, 2012 1:49 pm

They should take this off the drug list. Who cares if they smoke. It isn’t a performance enhancer nor is it a drug you can associate with violence, quite the opposite really. If I was fighting I would prefer my opponent to be using.Posted October 5, 2012 1:30 pm

Using a vaporizer (or a vape) is the safest method to take it. My friend has just purchased one the past week and he’s done a lot of research into and apparently you get the high without the negative health effects. Personally, I don’t dally with hard drugs though.. they can and often do cause mind insanity among those that abuse them.Posted October 5, 2012 1:27 pm

First of all it happens to be one of the biggest and best medical uses for you!
Smoking it and using it as Herb are not the same thing.

He’s telling the truth, he didn’t smoke it he injected into his p.enis. It’s not like it’s some great secret that cannabis is one of the best weight cutting agents on the market, athletes have been using it to cut weight since the 50s. An experienced practitioner could easily lose 3-4 kgs over a 24 hour period if they smoked it. However, if they were to inject it straight into their p.enis (the most effective method for cutting large amounts of weight in a short time) they could easily shift 20kgs in that time and then rehydrate the weight back on after the weigh in.Posted October 5, 2012 12:47 pm
