Super featherweight Eloy Perez didn't enjoy a good night in the ring on February 25 in St. Louis, when he was knocked out in the fourth round by Adrien Broner, and things have now gone from bad to worse.

Ryan Maquiñana is reporting that Perez tested positive for cocaine after the fight, and has been released by his management team as well.

Perez (23-1-2, 7 KO) was considered by many to be one of the better super featherweights in the world going into the Broner fight, where he was completely overwhelmed by an opponent who had every single advantage possible.

This development not only hurts his reputation, but it clearly damages his career, as he now has no management team, will soon have no boxing license after a hearing in Missouri (which will probably be a formality), and he'll have plenty of explaining to do otherwise, too, with the other handlers of his career -- if he currently has any left, anyway.

Good luck to him. What else is there to say?
