Gennady Golovkin CONFIRMS Canelo Alvarez replacement and risks LOSING title

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.

A complaint, filed last month, related to two dates in February on which Alvarez submitted out-of-competition samples that were positive for Clenbuterol, a banned substance that helps burn fat and increase lean muscle mass.

Golovkin called him a liar and implied he had always been a doper and accused him even further, stating he was doping during their first bout as well.

In a report from ESPN's Dan Rafael on Wednesday, Vanes Martirosyan will be the opponent for Golovkin on May 5th at Carson, California's StubHub Center.

"Although most professional sports, worldwide anti-doping agencies and United States boxing commissions treat meat contamination differently from other positive tests, Nevada does not".

"Canelo has now failed two drugs tests and apparently passed a third, maybe because he got off it".

Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs), the crowd-pleasing Kazakh knockout artist, had originally been slated to fight Canelo Álvarez at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas in a rematch of their September blockbuster, which ended in a controversial split draw.

"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. "When they asked me if I'd take this fight, I said yes. If Triple G is successful May 5, then the biggest fight in the sport of boxing is still Triple G and Canelo, and that's the fight we would try to make".

Alvarez blamed contaminated beef in Mexico for his positive test and vowed to plead his case before the commission.

The NAC ruled that Alvarez did not intentionally inject Clenbuterol.
