Canelo Alvarez hit with 6-month suspension, report says

Canelo Alvarez receives drugs ban new Gennady Golovkin rematch date planned Canelo will now likely try to set up a rematch with Golovkin on September 15
Heather Davidson | 19 April, 2018, 02:01

As reported by TMZ, the two were supposed to meet on May 5, but that date had already been cancelled following Canelo's positive test. They announced his next bout will take place on September 15, Mexican independence weekend, and it is believed this will likely be the rescheduled Gennady Golovkin rematch.

Gennady Golovkin's quest to fight on May 5th has hit another roadblock, as one of the IBF will not sanction a fight against confirmed opponent Vanes Martirosyan.

However, the 27-year-old tested positive for banned fat-stripper clenbuterol earlier this year and subsequently pulled out of the fight, claiming that contaminated meat in Mexico had caused the sample as opposed to deliberate attempts to dope.

Golovkin, the unified middleweight world champion, is now set to fight Vanes Martirosyan at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. "All the controversy around it is going to make a much bigger promotion whenever the fight does happen".

Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 knockouts) and Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) fought to a controversial draw last September, with judge Adalaide Byrd coming under criticism for her scorecard, scoring the fight that most thought GGG won for Alvarez by a 118-110 score. "When they asked me if I'd take this fight, I said yes". The Nevada Athletic Commission has now officially suspended the Mexican fighter. "He is ready to continue his remarkable record of fighting at the highest level". Golovkin's promoter Tom Loeffler knows of the IBF's letter, and told ESPN that Golovkin plans to fight May 5th, and will be seeking the exception. But he said Golovkin must focus first on his upcoming fight.

"If Triple G doesn't win May 5, there's no talk about a Canelo rematch in the future". It's about my boxing story and what type of fighter I am.
