Reports out of Foxwoods Casino and Resort in Connecticut say that Julio Cesar Chavez, fresh off a fourth round TKO of Ken Sigurani on the Savarese-Douglas undercard last night, refused to take a Drug test after the win and that he has been suspended. The source goes on to say that the September 18, bout with Oscar De La Hoya is OFF and that promoter Bob Arum, who possibly faces millions of dollars for tortuous interference between Chavez and rival promoter Don King, is out of his mind! Arum coaxed Chavez away from King realizing he could make far more money in promoting a De La Hoya-Chavez rematch, than he could loser in court to King. As for Julio not wanting to take a Drug test. It has been long bantered about that the fading Mexican Icon having a fondness for Colombian Dust. Pedro Fernandez The writer can be reached at
