Boxer Blames Failed Tests on Contaminated Meat

Boxer Blames Failed Tests on Contaminated Meat

Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez has been banned for six months after failing two drugs tests earlier this year.

The Mexican middleweight, 27, said eating contaminated meat was the reason he tested positive for clenbuterol on 17 and 20 February.

 


He was forced to withdraw from a world middleweight title rematch against Gennady Golovkin after their first bout in September ended in a draw.

 

Alvarez’s ban has been backdated, so he will be free to fight from 17 August.

 

Golden Boy Promotions said Alvarez “looks forward to returning to the ring in September for Mexican Independence Day weekend”.
