Shane Mosley Jr, the son of former three-division world champion Shane Mosley, has been suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for failing a drug test.

Mosley tested positive for amphetamines following his first round KO over Jason Kelly in June.

He was scheduled to fight on the Sergey Kovalev-Nadjib Mohammedi undercard on Saturday night and on the undercard of his father's August 29 rematch with Ricardo Mayorga but will no longer appear on either because of the failed test.

Mosley faces a hearing with the Nevada commission and is likely to be given an extended suspension and fined a portion of his $25,000 purse.
