Canelo Alvarez Suspended Six Months

Canelo Alvarez Suspended Six Months Canelo Alvarez Suspended Six Months

Alvarez, temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission following the results of the tests administered by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency (VADA) on February 17 and 20, was suspended Wednesday by the commission for sixth months, backdated to February 17, according to USA Today.

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.

Upon his return to boxing, Alvarez has agreed to provide negative drug tests before his next fight in Las Vegas.

Caroline Bateman, a Nevada deputy attorney general, said Alvarez had been cooperative since testing positive, which was a contributing factor in handing down a punishment less than the standard disciplinary sanction of one year.

But the T-Mobile Arena showdown will no longer go ahead, with Alvarez withdrawing two weeks ago in light of his suspension and ahead of a scheduled hearing with the Nevada commission this Wednesday.

"I hope he's learned a lesson, that he is responsible with what he puts in his body", commission Chairman Anthony Marnell said. The suspension includes a requirement that he pass drug tests before fighting again in Nevada. "If he follows the agreement as it's laid out then he would be able to come back and fight like any other fighter".

The Mexican middleweight had been due to face Golovkin but his place has already been filled by Vanes Martirosyan.

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 news of the failed tests emerged, Alvarez claimed that he had accidentally ingested the substance while eating tainted Mexican meat, a problem - and excuse - that a number of athletes have used in the past. 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. "Canelo and Golden Boy Promotions respect the rules of Nevada and are therefore satisfied with the settlement agreement reached today", Golden Boy Promotions said in a statement issued after the meeting.
