James Toney, a three-time champion, and Danny Batchelder — who squared off against one another in a May 24 bout at HP Pavilion in San Jose — face a one-year suspension from boxing after testing positive for steroids. Both were suspended immediately after two types of steroids were found. Toney previously tested positive for nandrolone.
Junior jumps to Hendrick team
Dale Earnhardt Jr. won’t be complaining about resources anymore. Junior completed his whirlwind free agency by agreeing to a five-year deal with Hendrick Motorsports — the NASCAR team currently ruling the Nextel Cup roost. Hendrick has been close to Junior for most of Earnhardt’s life; Hendrick was a friend and confidant of Junior’s dad. Junior’s new teammates include Jeff Gordon and Jimmie Johnson.
