John Molina Jr. suspended for seven months

John Molina Jr. has been suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission for seven months and fined $90,000 . He tested positive for diuretic furosemide, diuretics are drugs that increase the rate of urine flow and sodium excretion to adjust the volume and composition of body fluids. Diuretics are often abused by athletes to excrete water for rapid weight loss and to mask the presence of other banned substances. This was done for his March 7th unanimous decision loss to Adrien Broner.

Trainer, Joe Goossen, stated that Molina would not have had to use diuretic to cut weight as he was on track to make the weight limit.
