Casamayor tests positive for marijuana

BY foxsports • November 17, 2011

According to a representative of the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC), former lightweight and super featherweight world champion Joel Casamayor tested positive for marijuana following his Nov. 12 TKO loss to Timothy Bradley on the Manny Pacquiao-Juan Manuel Marquez undercard.

Casamyor, who received $100,000 for his clinch-filled snoozer against Bradley, faces a suspension along with a fine that could take as much as 100 percent of his purse pending a formal NSAC hearing.

The 40-year-old former Olympic gold medalist was an elite 130- and 135-pound competitor for nearly a decade, from 1999 to 2008, but has looked worn and badly faded in losing three of his last five bouts
