Canelo Tests Positive For Clenbuterol Ahead of Golovkin Fight

Official Statement By Golden Boy Promotions, Promoter For Canelo

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.
 
As Daniel Eichner, Director of SMRTL, the WADA-accredited lab that conducted the tests stated in his letter today, "These values are all within the range of what is expected from meat contamination."
 
Upon receiving this information, Golden Boy immediately notified the Nevada State Athletic Commission and Gennady Golovkin's promoter, Tom Loeffler.
 
As has been planned, Canelo will immediately move his training camp from Mexico to the United States and will submit to any number and variety of additional tests that VADA deems necessary ahead of and after May 5.
 
Added Canelo: "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 has tested clean dozens of times over the course of his previous 12 fights.

Saul “Canelo” Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin will return to the ring on May 5th at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, to fight for the WBA, WBC, IBO, IBF middleweight titles.

Canelo and Golovkin met on September 16, 2017, at T-Mobile. After twelve rounds, the contest ended in a controversial twelve round split draw. Don Trella voted 114-114, Dave Moretti: 113-115 in favor of Golovkin, and Adalaide Byrd: 118-110 for Canelo.

Now both promise to give a better fight, because they do not want to “leave the decision in the hands of the judges”. For this reason, the two fighters, in the promotion of the fight, have promised to close the show with a knockout.

Canelo has a record of 49 wins, 1 loss, 2 draws and 34 knockouts. For his part, “GGG” has 37 fights won, one tied and 33 knockouts.
