Canelo Vows To Erase Doubts: This Will Make Me Much Stronger!

By Miguel Rivera

As reported on Tuesday on BoxingScene.com, former world chamion Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez has signed up for year-round testing with the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) after losing his WBC ranking.

The Mexican superstar was handed a six-month suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission that runs until August 17 after he tested positive for trace levels of the banned substance clenbuterol back in February.

But Alvarez's camp maintained his innocence, blaming the findings on contaminated meat.

WBC president Mauricio Sulaiman this week said Alvarez was removed from their middleweight rankings after "he refused to sign up for the clean boxing programme as stated in the rules", but the 27-year-old has now agreed to regular testing.

Alvarez will be looking to reschedule a fight with WBC, IBO, WBA, IBF middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin on his return, having been forced to postpone their May 5 Las Vegas bout.

The first meeting between the pair ended in a controversial draw last September.

Canelo is now motivated to bounce back from the drug testing controversy.

"I always knew what I was and what I am, I cooperated and I said I would do anything to show that I am clean. With the hair test, everything was put on the table and I wish more boxers would follow my path.... demonstrating based on actions so that my image as a full fighter is not tainted," Canelo told Enrique Sanchez.

"I am living a new stage in which I am learning a lot and maturing, this has been more complicated than when I lost against Floyd Mayweather, without a doubt, because in that situation I fought, and here I could only defend myself with my tests. This has made me grow a lot.

"In September, I'm going to return to fight, that's my goal, to return to the ring is the most important thing, and from now on I think it's a new stage for my life. Whenever they ask me 'what was your most difficult year,' I think this has been one of the most difficult, but this will make me much stronger."

Canelo Alvarez should be forced to fight Charlo before he gets a rematch with GGG. That will be his punishment for cheating.

[QUOTE=goldenbear;18779826]Canelo has already gotten what he needed from the clenbuterol so no need to use any more which is the (growth of skeletal muscle.) He'll still have the bone density and ability to increase muscle mass.[/QUOTE] So now Clenbuterol helps…
