According to boxingscene, sources have made it clear that Perez tested positive for cocaine after the Broner fight. So much for being a role model for the kids, huh?

Thoughts?

Some people cant handle the pressure and look to drugs as an outlet. Fighters always talking about giving back well now you get to give back part of your salary. Congrats

This pretty much sums it up, but I wish Perez the best. Accordin' to Elie Seckbach, Eloy was also cut loose from his contract. Hopefully, he'll bounce back.

Maybe Gamboa should've sniffed some coke too...seems to be the easiest way out of a contract these days...laugh.gif

damn so a guy makes a mistake and everyone shits on him and dumps him. wow. Just when he needed some love after a tough loss and positive drug test he gets kicked on while down. How about they hear his whole story on why and get him help then decide from there if they should dump him or not.

Maybe his promotor DID hear his side of it and then decided to let him go.

I thought being coked up would give you that killer instinct in the ring.

He should've considered PCP...maybe he would've been able to take those punches better.

Can't stand coke heads. That shit is lame.

For me,the fact that he was only busted after the match is further proof that random blood and urine testing is required. Even if as Roach says, it isn't true OST testing, it's still much, much better than the testing that he's comfortable with.

i never saw eloy fight before this one with broner...but from the little that i did see, he seems like a likable guy with a decent style. the game plan was all wrong. hopefully he can bounce back. as for the coke thing....who knows? i won't cast any stones...but hopefully he gets his act straight and leaves that shit alone. he's not getting anywhere dealing with that bullshit.

I hope he gets himself together as well. From what I saw on HBO, this is what I got from him...

(---> is "which leads to")

Eloy Perez:

Super caring guy--->people-pleaser--->added pressure to excel--->additional negative self-criticism when he doesn't succeed at things--->coke use or dependence

Or hell, maybe he just went out on the town and had a blast before the fight...who knows?
