Shamrock’s Steroid Suspension KO’s Fight vs. Lashley

A one-year suspension by the California State Athletic Commission for allegedly testing positive for three separate steroids has cost Ken Shamrock one of his final opportunities for a significant pay day as a professional fighter.

According to FiveOuncesofPain.com multi-media partner The Fight Network, the camp for Bobby Lashley has confirmed that Roy Jones Jr.’s Square Ring Promotions, the promoter of the March 21 hybrid boxing/MMA pay-per-view “March Badness,” has confirmed that the event will go on as planned and that a replacement opponent is being sought.

A separate report by MMAWeekly.com’s Insider Blog also quotes the Florida Boxing Commission as stating that it will honor the one-year suspension handed down to Shamrock by CSAC.

Still slated for the “March Badness” event is a light heavyweight boxing bout between Roy Jones Jr. and Omar Sheika, a heavyweight MMA matchup featuring Roy Nelson vs. Jeff Monson, and Lashley vs. an opponent yet to be deterimed. A previously announced light heavyweight matchup between Seth Petruzelli and Doug Marshall was scrapped after Petruzelli was forced to withdraw due to injury.

    It seems like Ken Shamrock is avoiding fighting people when there is more buzz around his opponent than him. He doesn’t want to be “the next big thing’s” notable fight career padding. he doesn’t wanna seem washed up like Tank Abbott, but he’s accomplishing the opposite.

    When you get old, you get old. It happens to everyone.

    Sucks for Roy Jones and the Florida fans. What looked to be a solid event is having some problems. I was in Pensacola in summer 03 and Chevelle played at a bar right on the beach. It was amazing. My point being is that some MMA fights right off the beach would be awesome.

    Lashley vs. Kimbo would be a great idea. That way a n00b can beat him down.

    It seems like the whole mma portion of this event is falling apart. Still roy nelson vs. jeff monson is an interesting fight
