Frank Warren: If Canelo is Out, Then Saunders in Frame For GGG

By Frank Warren

THE WORD ON the media grapevine is pointing towards the big rematch between Gennady Golovkin and Saul Alvarez being in some jeopardy.

The pair were set to go again in Las Vegas on May 5, but this money-spinning event has been thrown into doubt following the detection of clenbuterol in a sample provided by the Mexican.

I think many people just assumed the hugely profitable party would go ahead regardless and the issue would simply be swept under the canvas.

It did appear that the governing bodies were reluctant to do anything about it and it now seems it is down to the Nevada commission to take the appropriate steps and investigate the matter properly.

It looks now like there will be some consequences – especially now it is public knowledge that Canelo failed two drug tests.

I am sure as much as Las Vegas will want the event to take place on Mexico’s Cinco de Mayo because of the income that it would generate for the local economy and casinos – and as much as Golovkin will want it to go ahead – at the end of the day the sport has got to be seen to be policing itself and failed tests cannot simply be ignored.

If the fight is ultimately aborted then the name of Billy Joe Saunders will be firmly in the frame as a potential opponent for the holder of the other three middleweight belts, but the prospect of this would be very much date dependent due to the hand injury that has disrupted his training as you would want to be anything less than 100 percent going in with Golovkin.
