Grigsby tests positive for marijuana for a second time, N'dou wants Tszyu

Scott Christ is the managing editor of Bad Left Hook and has been covering boxing for SB Nation since 2006.

Will Grigsby, who was as lackadaisical as any fighter could have been in his recent loss to Ulises Solis, might have had a reason for his indifference. The 36-year old former light flyweight world champion tested positive for marijuana in his post-fight drug test. Grigsby also tested positive for marijuana after his 2000 victory against Nelson Dieppa, and was stripped of the WBO title.

Grigsby will have to appear at a hearing in Nevada in March, and is likely to be suspended and fined. He will be issued a temporary suspension until then, as well.

Truthfully, Grigsby looked to be at the end of his road against Solis, anyway, and this may wind up being a formality more than anything.

In other news, Lovemore N'dou has been awarded the IBF light welterweight title that Ricky Hatton forfeited, and has said he wants to fight Kostya Tszyu. Tszyu hasn't fought since his 2005 TKO loss to Ricky Hatton, but the fight could bring in super money in Australia, the home field for both Tszyu and N'dou.
