There are less than two weeks before Mexican rivals Saul "Canelo" Alvarez and Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. step in the ring to settle their differences.
The fight takes place on May 6th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
Canelo vs. Chavez Jr., which takes place on HBO Pay-Per-View, happens at a catch-weight of 164.5-pounds.
According to World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman, both boxer have come up clean in the ongoing random drug test protocol which the WBC regulates. The sanctioning body works hand in hand with VADA as part of their Clean Boxing program.
The WBC has a special commemorative title belt which they created for the Cinco De Mayo showdown. The sanctioning body will then stage a special ceremony in Mexico City to officially present that title to the winner.
The two boxer have been trading shots in the press as it relates to drug testing, where Chavez Jr. questioned the testing protocol - and Canelo lashed out at Chavez Jr. over his two positive tests from the past. Chavez Jr. had tested positive in the past for marijuana and for a weight-cutting agent.
Sulaiman confirmed the drug testing information to various media outlets, such as Azteca Deportes and Afición.
"Everything has come out clean [based on] the last report, which showed the results of three tests that both of them had taken as of March 27. I understand that at least six tests have been done on each [fighter], blood and urine, and everything has fortunately gone well," Sulaiman said.
