Carlos Cuadras Heads To Rehab Following Suspension
After being suspended by the WBC for refusing to take a drug test, former WBC flyweight champion has entered into a rehab facility for issues regarding addictions to drugs and alcohol.
In a statement, WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman, stated the WBC is supporting Cuadras and that he spoke at length with Cuadras. “Carlos Cuadras admitted that fame, glory and money, which come from success in the ring, haunted him and he slowly became weak to the temptations and peer pressure from his pseudo friends,” the WBC leader stated.
Cuadras stated, “I am convinced that I will win this battle. I have a wife and a son to support and I represent my country, I need to find the strength with the help of God to find a cure to this horrible nightmare as I have lived in hell, but I am a champion and will be victorious.
“I never failed a test in boxing, respected the sport but my usage in my private life, between fights, certainly affected my career in the sport I love. I am very thankful to those who have supported me during the difficult times. I am embarrassed and apologize to the public and to the sport but beg you to give me one last opportunity.”
