As Golovkin trolls him, Canelo Alvarez hit with 6-month suspension

As Golovkin trolls him, Canelo Alvarez hit with 6-month suspension

Canelo and Golovkin were scheduled to rematch on May 5 following their controversial draw last September, then Canelo's positive drug test results were announced.

Golovkin called him a liar and implied he had always been a doper and accused him even further, stating he was doping during their first bout as well.

Golovkin will defend his WBC, WBA and IBF title against Vanes "The Nightmare" Martirosyan at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Both Alvarez and Golovkin have said they're hopeful the rematch can finally take place as soon as Alvarez is free to fight again.

"As we have maintained all along, the trace amounts of clenbuterol found in Canelo's system in February came from meat contamination, and we provided the Nevada State Athletic Commission with a great deal of evidence to support those facts".

"Canelo has now failed two drugs tests and apparently passed a third, maybe because he got off it".




By taking a relatively low-risk fight with Martirosyan, who has not fought in two years and who lost his last outing, Golovkin risks being stripped his IBF title by failing to take a bout with the organization's mandatory challenger: Russia's Sergiy Derevyanchenko (12-0, 10 KOs).

"Vanes Martirosyan is now the most important fight of my career. I do believe in my heart I'm going to beat (Golovkin) because he's never fought someone with my style". "The Nevada commissioners agreed to it Wednesday".

"Whether it makes the fight bigger, I would say so", Loeffler said.

However, Robert Bennett of the NSAC said in the complaint that "Alvarez's utilization, ingestion and/or consumption of Clenbuterol, whether intentional or not, constitutes an anti-doping violation".

However, the 27-year-old tested positive for banned fat-stripper clenbuterol earlier this year and subsequently pulled out of the fight, claiming that contaminated meat in Mexico had caused the sample as opposed to deliberate attempts to dope.
