Canelo Alvarez Receives Six Month Suspension

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

Mexican middleweight superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez has received a six-month drugs ban, backdated to February 17 (the date of his first failed test) from the Nevada Commission. Today, however, it was confirmed that the boxing star has been suspended for six months, by the Nevada State Athletic Commission. Since the fight has been announced between Golovkin and Martirosyan, no comment has been made regarding if Golovkin will be stripped or not of their title. "He has my respect and I am training hard to defend my titles against him", Golovkin said in a release.

That could place a rematch with middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin in September, provided Golovkin successfully defends his IBO, WBA and WBC titles in a fight against Vanes Martirosyan on May 5. Alvarez held a news conference earlier this month and explained how tainted meat is the reason he can't fight Golovkin next month.

Tom Loeffler, Triple G's promoter, said extra seats will be added at StubHub Center for the fight. But with Alvarez suspended because of the positive test and so little time between the hearing and the fight promoters chose to cancel the bout.

Golovkin had been due to fight Canelo Alvarez at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on the same date, in a blockbuster rematch of their dramatic draw last September.

"I am truly shocked about what has happened and for those who have doubts and suspicions about my integrity I have always been and always will be [a] clean fighter", he said.

Gennady Golovkin finally has an opponent for his May 5 fight.

The 27-year-old had blamed the failed tests on eating contaminated meat in his native Mexico and insisted he was the victim of a mistake. "I do believe in my heart I'm going to beat (Golovkin) because he's never fought someone with my style".
