Canelo Alvarez Receives Six Month Suspension

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

The Nevada Athletic Commission reduced Alvarez's one-year ban to six months after agreeing a settlement with the former two-division world champion.

Last month, it was revealed Alvarez had returned positive samples, which showed trace levels of the banned substance clenbuterol - a revelation that has led to a much-anticipated Las Vegas rematch against Golovkin on May 5 being cancelled.

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.

According to Dan Rafael of espn.com, Middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin could be stripped of his IBF Middleweight title should he go through with a fight with Vanes Martirosyan.

Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 knockouts) was temporarily suspended by the commission on March 23.

Authorities responding to situation at Lee Correctional Institution
The prison in Bishopville, S.C., about 60 miles northeast of Columbia, houses about 1,600 male inmates . No officers or staff members were among those killed or harmed, the department added.

Canelo Alvarez has been dealt his punishment for two failed drug tests for clenbuterol.

Gennady Golovkin confirmed his opponent for his Cinco de Mayo title-defense following the recent withdrawal of Gary "Spike" O'Sullivan from the running. Any type of positive test, regardless of the circumstances, has to be taken very serious in sports, especially in the sport of boxing.

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. "When they asked me if I'd take this fight, I said yes. Alvarez denies intentionally taking clenbuterol or any other substances prohibited by the commission".

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.

"Canelo looks forward to returning to the ring in September for Mexican Independence Day weekend to represent Mexico and boxing in what will be the sport's biggest event of the year", Golden Boy's statement said.
