Nino, Salido Suspended After Testing Positive
The Nevada State Athletic Commission just took out two birds with one stone in another case where banned substances are still being used…
WBC Light-Flyweight Champion Omar Nino was suspended yesterday after testing positive for methamphetamine right after his bout against Brian Viloria last month. Nino will not be permitted to fight until after a hearing takes place in January.
Nino has denied using the drug or any banned substances at all…
IBF Featherweight Champion Orlando Salido was also suspended yesterday after it was found that he tested positive for the banned steroid Nandrolone shortly after winning the belt from Robert Guerrero.
There are many different things that could happen to both fighters if both are found guilty. Some of the consequences would be facing possible suspension, having their boxing license revoked, be fined, having their last victories overturned, and losing their belts.
