Golden Boy Promotions Issues Statement on Canelo Alvarez

Alvarez tested positive for clenbuterol back in February and his scheduled May 5 rematch against Gennady Golovkin has been cancelled due to the ongoing situation.

Alvarez, 27, who has blamed the test on tainted meat, reached an adjudication agreement before the hearing, which was adopted unanimously by the five-man commission panel. Since the fight has been announced between Golovkin and Martirosyan, no comment has been made regarding if Golovkin will be stripped or not of their title. I respect this sport. But with Alvarez suspended because of the positive test and so little time between the hearing and the fight promoters made a decision to cancel the bout.

Alvarez's team has claimed that the clenbuterol levels of the fighter were consistent with those that have been found in athletes, who have eaten contaminated meat. Loeffler acknowledged the letter from the IBF and told ESPN that Golovkin plans to fight May 5 and said their side will seek an exception, adding that he hopes the IBF will grant one. He did remove himself from the fight recently after news of the results.

"Gennady is a proud champion of the IBF and, as a unified world champion, he looks forward to remaining champion for a long time and defending his middleweight titles many more times", Loeffler said.

Golovkin had been due to fight Canelo Alvarez at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on the same date, in a blockbuster rematch of their dramatic draw last September.

"I'm going to take full advantage of this fight".

It was always Golovkin's intention to fight on May 5th, as he had been in preparations for May 5th for a considerable amount of time. Their first fight sold 1.3m pay-per-views in the United States and generated a live gave of more than $27m, the third-highest in boxing history.
