BREAKING: Canelo Álvarez Receives Six-Month Ban For Positive Test

If there was any hope of a possible rescheduling for the rematch between Canelo Álvarez and GGG, it was put to rest on Wednesday when Alvarez received a six-month ban from the Nevada Athletic Commission.

Alvarez was due to fight Golovkin a second time in Las Vegas on May 5th after their controversial draw in 2017, but a monkey wrench was thrown into the plans after Canelo was suspended for testing positive for the banned substance clenbuterol, which he blamed on Mexican meat at the time.

Golovkin called him a liar and implied he had always been a doper.  GGG even stated he believes Canelo was doping during their first bout as well.

Triple G will still get some action on May 5th, as he’ll fight Vanes Martirosyan at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.
