LAS VEGAS (AP) — Nevada officials have filed a complaint against boxer Mickey Bey after he tested positive for elevated testosterone before a Las Vegas fight earlier this month.

The Nevada Athletic Commission says the undefeated contender from Cleveland had a T/E ratio of more than 30 during a Feb. 2 super featherweight matchup against Robert Rodriguez at the Cosmopolitan casino.

An elevated T/E ratio suggests steroid use. Commission director Keith Kizer says Bey's was one of the highest test results the commission has ever seen.

Kizer says Bey could face a temporary suspension later this month, and will be able to respond to the allegations possibly in April.

The 29-year-old Bey won the fight by a third-round knockout and has a record of 19-0-1. The 22-year-old Rodriguez, of Greeley, Colo., dropped to 7-3.
