J'Leon Love suspended for six months by Nevada commission

USA TODAY Sports

Mayweather Promotions prospect J'Leon Love has been fined and suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission after failing a drug test in early May.

J'Leon Love has been fined, suspended, and had his win over Gabriel Rosado erased in the wake of a failed drug test for a diuretic, following his May 4 fight on the Mayweather vs Guerrero pay-per-view undercard in Las Vegas.

Love was fined $10,000 and is now off of the Mayweather-Canelo card, which Mayweather Promotions' Leonard Ellerbe says was scheduled to be his return to action. Love (15-0, 8 KO) initially was declared the winner over Rosado via split decision, a debatable decision in a pretty good fight, after Love showed up very late to the weigh-in and then failed to make weight on the first attempt, later dropping a pound and a half to hit the 160 mark.

The 25-year-old Michigan native is one of the key fighters in the current Mayweather stable, the fighter under their banner who figures to have the most years ahead of him, while also being fairly close to significant fights in the 160-pound division. The company has spoken out publicly against the failed drug test, taking a quick stand in the media. Recently, it was reported that all Mayweather fighters will be tested year round.
