Canelo Alvarez suspended for 6 months for doping violations

Golovkin Mocks Alvarez Tainted Meat Claim

Still considered the division's lineal champion thanks to his victory over Miguel Cotto in 2015, Alvarez's suspension is retroactive to the first positive test, which makes August 17 the date he is eligible to return, leaving the possibility of an Alvarez-Golovkin rematch open for Mexican Independence Day weekend in September.

With Alvarez's May 5 rematch with Gennady Golovkin cancelled, there is no forthcoming purse. It's a good show for L.A. Cinco De Mayo. Alvarez held a news conference earlier this month and explained how tainted meat is the reason he can't fight Golovkin next month.

Now that Alvarez is suspended, Golovkin will now face Vanes Martirosyan on May 5 from the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Currently, the plan is for Canelo and GGG to fight in their rematch during Mexican Independence Day weekend in mid-September. if Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) defeats late substitute Vanes Martirosyan (36-3-1, 21 KOs) on May 5th.

It's worth noting Apple is no stranger to buying out services and turning them into subscriptions people actually want to use. Despite its reputation as a company that rarely acquires other companies, Apple has made other media-related purchases.

"Gennady is a proud champion of the IBF and, as a unified world champion, he looks forward to remaining champion for a long time and defending his middleweight titles many more times", Loeffler said. "I will always be a clean fighter". "He is ready to continue his remarkable record of fighting at the highest level".

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.

Speaking via press release, Golovkin says that his concentration is now focused on Martirosyan.

Things didn't go as planned for Spike, though, and with him left opponentless, many had wondered whether Triple G would still make the walk to the ring on May 5. Any type of positive test, regardless of the circumstances, has to be taken very serious in sports, especially in the sport of boxing.
