Boxer Jordan Moore suspended for positive steroids test

West Virginia super middleweight Jordan Moore was suspended for one year Monday by the Nevada Athletic Commission after he failed to show up for a disciplinary hearing in Las Vegas following a positive test for anabolic steroids.

Moore (3-1) lost in the first round by technical knockout to Lanell Bellows on Sept. 14 at the MGM Grand Garden. Following the fight, Moore tested positive for Nandrolone, a banned substance for competition in Nevada. He was temporarily suspended pending Wednesday’s hearing. The commission voted unanimously to suspended him for a year and impose a 30 percent fine on his $3,000 purse. Since Moore lost the fight, there was no change to the decision.
