Khan: Canelo Should Have Been Banned, GGG Wins Quite Easy

Former world champion Amir Khan is still shaking his head at Mexican star Saul "Canelo" Alvarez.

Khan has long stated that a lifetime ban should have been issued when Canelo tested positive for clenbuterol back in February.

Canelo, who received a six month suspension from the Nevada State Athletic Commission, has stated in several interviews that his positive tests were a direct result of ingesting contaminated meat.

Back in May of 2016, Canelo knocked Khan out in the sixth round of their showdown, which took place at a catch-weight of 155-pounds.

This Saturday, Canelo will challenge IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin to a rematch at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Khan, like Golovkin, says the Mexican boxer has likely been taking clenbuterol for much longer than he's actually claiming.

Khan has seen changes in the physical form of Canelo in recent months and he's picking Golovkin to win big.

“Is Canelo the same fighter that he was in the first fight? He got caught taking clenbuterol. Now, if he’s off that and he’s been taking it his whole career, mentally it’s definitely going to work against him," Khan told Talk Sport.

“I can see in some of his pictures that he’s not looking as thick, as big. I don’t know how his power is looking, but mentally it’ll play a big part. I think he should’ve got a ban for good. When you’re taking a substance it’s not fair because you can literally kill someone in the ring. You’re going in there to punch someone in the head.”

“I feel that in this fight, Triple G is going to take it [victory] quite easy. The first fight, I gave it Triple G by two rounds when I’d thought, before the fight, that Canelo was going to win it quite convincingly with his movement. Obviously, I’d shared a ring with him and he beat me. This time, with him being off the drugs, I think mentally it’s going to affect him quite big.”

Valid points by both. Khans life could have been ruined by the cheating ginger. How people support clenelo is as bad as being a liberal.
