Canelo Failed Drug Test Before Triple G Rematch
Just two months before the Canelo and Triple G rematch, Canelo has managed to fail a drug test by testing positive for a banned PED called clenbuterol.Canelo is embarrassed by the results of this test and believes the traces of clenbuterol came from contaminated meat.
“I am an athlete who respects the sport and this surprises me and bothers me because it had never happened to me, I will submit to all the tests that require me to clarify this embarrassing situation and I trust that at the end the truth will prevail.” – Canelo Alvarez
Golden Boy Promotions released an official statement on Canelo’s behalf.
“As part of the voluntary testing program that Canelo Alvarez insisted on ahead of his May 5 fight, one of his results came back positive for trace levels of clenbuterol, consistent with meat contamination that has impacted dozens of athletes in Mexico over the last years,” – Golden Boy Promotions
There is no official word on whether this failed drug test will affect the fight taking place on May 5, 2018, in Las Vegas between Alvarez and Golovkin.
