Canelo Alvarez temporarily suspended by Nevada Athletic Commission

Canelo Alvarez has been temporarily suspended by the Nevada Athletic Commission after testing positive for the banned substance Clenbuterol.

Here is a statement from the Nevada Athletic Commission executive director Bob Bennett regarding Alvarez’s temporary suspension:

“Mr. Alvarez is temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission per the executive director for his adverse analytical findings, that being Clenbuterol, on February 17 and 20. A commission hearing is scheduled for April 10, 2018 to hear from Mr. Alvarez or for Mr. Alvarez to attend.”

Alvarez is scheduled to battle Gennady Golovkin on May 5 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Should be interesting to see what will happens next, but I would be shocked if this fight is cancelled. Too much money to be made!
