Canelo Alvarez Receives Oddly Light Suspension For Failed Drug Tests

Canelo Alvarez Receives Oddly Light Suspension For Failed Drug Tests

Canelo Alvarez will be suspended for six months after reaching an agreement with the Nevada State Athletic Commission over two failed drug tests from February.

Alvarez first tested positive for the prohibited substance Clenbuterol on February 17, and the commission chose to backdate his ban to that date.

"Although most professional sports, global anti-doping agencies and United States boxing commissions treat meat contamination differently from other positive tests, Nevada does not". The World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA) does note that low levels of the substance can be attributed to eating contaminated food sources.

"Vanes hasn't been active, but he had been looking for a fight", Golovkin's promoter Tom Loeffler told Yahoo.

Many fighters were rumoured to be in pole position to fill the void created by Canelo, including Ireland's Spike O'Sullivan, however the Armenian native and now of California Martirosyan has won the race to fill those big shoes.

Investigators concluded dumping of United States sorghum "substantially damaged" Chinese competitors, the Commerce Ministry said. The move also comes after President Xi Jinping said last week that China would open up its economy and also reduce tariffs.

As previously reported on BoxingScene.com, Gennady Golovkin finally has an opponent for his May 5 fight - which is going to be televised live on HBO. But he said Golovkin must focus first on his upcoming fight.

"It will all come down to what the boxing boards and governing bodies say but, in my opinion, if Canelo fights again then it is a sign to other fighters out there that they will only get a slap on the wrist and it's OK to do it".

With Alvarez, a Mexican, fighting on Cinco de Mayo, the rematch had been billed as one of the boxing events of the year.

Things didn't go as planned for Spike, though, and with him left opponentless, many had wondered whether Triple G would still make the walk to the ring on May 5.

"Vanes Martirosyan is now the most important fight of my career". I have a lot of Mexican fans. I respect this sport.
