Baltimore Ravens Safety, Tom Zbikowski (4-0, 3 KOs) was among five fighters suspended by The Chickasaw Nation Boxing Commission after testing positive for a banned substance following a card at the WinStar Casino in Thackerville, Oklahoma Saturday night.
The substance in question, on all five counts is THC, a chemical compound in Marijuana. The fighters in question will be suspended 45 days pending the submission of a second negative test.
Zbikowski’s manager, Mike Joyce is disputing the decision.
“We’re appealing it,” Joyce told the Chicago Sun-Times. “After the fight, all the fighters tested were positive. They had you pee in a cup and put a strip of something in there. I’ve never seen results where you get them the day of the fight. It was like a home pregnancy test or something.”
Zbikowski is next scheduled to fight May 21st at the Morongo Casino Resort & Spa in Cabazon, California.
