canelo alvarez test positive for banned substance


Boxing superstar Saul “Canelo” Alvarez tested positive for a banded substance on Monday. Two months before his rematch against Gennady “GGG” Golovkin the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association (VADA) says Canelo’s tests came back positive for traces of Clenbuterol. Canelo blames tainted meat consumption for the failed test. Clendbuterol is a banned ingredient that helps fighters (or animals) shed fat but hold onto muscle mass.


As of now the fight will go on. Canelo has agreed to move his training camp from Mexico to San Diego and to submit to more random testing before the Cinco de Mayo fight.
