Canelo Alvarez Gets 6-Month Suspension For Dirty Drug Test

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez has been banned for six months for failing drug tests, following a hearing held by the Nevada Athletic Commission.

Last month, it was revealed Alvarez had returned positive samples, which showed trace levels of the banned substance clenbuterol - a revelation that has led to a much-anticipated Las Vegas rematch against Golovkin on May 5 being cancelled.

However, despite the Mexican fighter since blaming contaminated meat in his home country for the failed tests, Khan is adamant he shouldn't be given a second chance.

So, now that the all-star bout isn't happening next month, the L.A. Times is reporting that Golovkin will battle Vanes Martirosyan, on May 5th. I respect this sport.

"Although most professional sports, global anti-doping agencies and United States boxing commissions treat meat contamination differently from other positive tests, Nevada does not". With AP Photos.Gennady Golovkin finally has an opponent for his May 5 fight.

According to Dan Rafael of espn.com, Middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin could be stripped of his IBF Middleweight title should he go through with a fight with Vanes Martirosyan.

"The only input from the Triple G side, because we feel Triple G is the most damaged person in the situation scrambling to save the May 5 date, it would have been nice to see Canelo getting a fine", said Golovkin's promoter, Tom Loeffler, who attended the hearing.

"Whether it makes the fight bigger, I would say so", Loeffler said. "Golovkin vs. Martirosyan will definitely be the fiesta de resistance of Cinco De Mayo".

Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 knockouts) and Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) fought to a controversial draw last September, with judge Adalaide Byrd coming under criticism for her scorecard, scoring the fight that most thought GGG won for Alvarez by a 118-110 score.
