Canelo Alvarez Suspended Six Months After Failed Drug Tests

Gennady Golovkin to fight Vanes Martirosyan on 5 May in Los Angeles

Alvarez is due to face the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) today but he has been provisionally suspended for the infraction.

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.

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

Alvarez' team had previously claimed contaminated meat, which has been proven to be a source of trace amounts of clenbuterol in fighters in his native Mexico, was the source of his failed tests, but the commission deemed it a performance-enhancing drug failure nonetheless.

Golovkin never stopped training and clearly has no interest in cutting Alvarez any slack, nor does he give much credence to Alvarez's stated explanation for two positive drug tests.

Gennady Golovkin confirmed his opponent for his Cinco de Mayo title-defense following the recent withdrawal of Gary "Spike" O'Sullivan from the running.

Alvarez fought Golovkin to a highly disputed draw last September in Las Vegas during an entertaining bout which most experts believed GGG had clearly won.

Loeffler said Golovkin could be ready for a September date with Alvarez. It's about my boxing story and what type of fighter I am.

Upon his return to boxing, Alvarez has agreed to provide negative drug tests before his next fight in Las Vegas.

"Vanes Martirosyan is now the most important fight of my career".

"I'm going to take full advantage of this fight".

The unanimous decision Wednesday by five members of the commission came quickly, according to ESPN.

The NAC ruled that Alvarez did not intentionally inject Clenbuterol.

Canelo Alvarez has been handed a six-month suspension for testing positive for banned substance Clenbuterol.
