Canelo Alvarez suspended from boxing for six months

Golovkin Mocks Alvarez Tainted Meat Claim

Golovkin was left searching for a last-minute foe after Canelo Alvarez was forced to withdraw with a pending complaint from the Nevada State Athletic Commission against him after testing positive for a banned substance.

Golovkin, the unified middleweight world champion, is now set to fight Vanes Martirosyan at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif.

The ruling means it is likely Alvarez will reschedule his rematch with Gennady Golovkin on the weekend of Mexican Independence in September.

Alvarez, 27, failed two Voluntary Anti-Doping Association tests in February after traces of Clenbuterol were found in his samples.

Overnight the IBF of which Golovkin holds their respective world middleweight title, spoke how to ESPN saying they would not approve of the fight and would have to consider stripping Golovkin.




It was always Golovkin's intention to fight on May 5th, as he had been in preparations for May 5th for a considerable amount of time. Though the fight is not official, Golovkin's promoter Tom Loeffler and Martirosyan's promoter Don King are reportedly close to finalizing a deal while the California State Athletic Commission (CSAC), WBA and WBC have all sanctioned the fight.

The ban was passed unanimously at a hearing on Wednesday and will be lifted on August 17 - in time for a potential Gennady Golovkin rematch in September. "That's the fight that GGG wants".

Alvarez will have his hearing with NSAC on Wednesday with the hope being that he will be cleared and able to return to action this fall with the rematch against Golovkin still the fight to make at 154 pounds.

"I am truly shocked about what has happened and for those who have doubts and suspicions about my integrity".

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, the brutish Mexican puncher who's been fighting professionally since 15 and Golovkin, the undefeated Kazakh who is considered by many to be the best active fighter in the sport, met in a much-publicized event at the T-mobile Arena - dubbed "Supremacy".
