Leo Santa Cruz, Abner Mares Staying Away From Eating Meat

By Miguel Rivera

Some Mexican boxers have shown solidarity with the situation that affected compatriot Canelo Alvarez after his positive test for clenbuterol for a supposed consumption of red meat in his country.

However, for boxers like Abner Mares and Leo Santa Cruz, prevention is better than a cure.

"Right now I do not eat meat, much less from Mexico," said Mares to ESPN Deportes. "It's prevention, totally. Apart from that I do not usually eat meat during camps, I eat fish, pure white meat."

Mares, who is currently in exhaustive preparation for his rematch on June 9 against WBA super featherweight champion Leo Santa Cruz, said the Nevada State Athletic Commission may have been a bit rough on the boxer by temporarily suspending him.

"It's a very serious situation. Personally for me, being an active fighter, I think they were a bit hard. I think they wanted to make an example with Canelo, I feel bad for him, and for all the people who were waiting for this fight, I feel that the Nevada Commission was a bit strict," said Mares.

Meanwhile Santa Cruz, who is also governed by a strict diet, commented on the case of Alvarez by sharing the precautions that he himself takes in the months of training prior to their commitments.

"With this clenbuterol with the meat, I have not eaten meat. Since there are two months left, [just] pure chicken, you never know if some meat can bring something and I do not want to risk it. As a fighter you know what gets into the body, Canelo was the one who asked for the tests, and someone who uses things like that is not going to ask make for those," Santa Cruz.

"It is unfair what they are doing to Canelo, because as a fighter it is surprising that they would do that, but only Canelo knows and only God knows what happened," Santa Cruz concluded.
