Canelo Alvarez is Set To Begin Training For September Return

By Miguel Rivera

Former two division champion Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) will start training this week.

The Mexican superstar is already getting prepared to train hard after having undergone arthroscopic surgery on his right knee a few weeks ago.

And according to the plans of the team led by Eddy Reynoso, the main preparation will start on the second week of July in California, according to ESPN Deportes.

Canelo is expected to return to the ring on September 15th.

The ring return will come a full year following his last outing, which took place in September 2017 - when he fought to a controversial twelve round split draw with IBF, IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Canelo will fly to camp in San Diego, California, on July 10.

He was initially scheduled to return on May 5, in a rematch against Golovkin - but the contest fell out after they found traces of clenbuterol in a pair of doping tests that Canelo took back in February.

The testing issues forced him to withdraw from the Golovkin rematch, and earned him a six month suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission. The suspension is retroactive to February 17, which allows Canelo have the capability of fighting by August.

Subsequently, Canelo accepted his guilt and evidence was presented to the NSAC to explain that his positive tests were due to contaminated meat consumption.

As reported late Tuesday night, the negotiations between Golovkin and Canelo have fallen apart.

The two sides have been unable to agree to the monetary split.

Canelo was staying firm on a 65-35 split, while Golovkin was pushing for an even 50-50 split.

Golden Boy Promotions CEO Oscar De La Hoya, who promotes Canelo, has already reached out to Eddie Hearn to explore the possibility of a deal to fight Daniel Jacobs in September.
