Gennady Golovkin to fight Vanes Martirosyan on 5 May in Los Angeles

Boxer Canelo Alvarez suspended for six months for failed drug tests

"And if Golovkin faces Canelo next, this decision could affect [Derevyanchenko] for 18 months", he said.

After Saul "Canelo" Alvarez claimed his failed drugs tests were due to contaminated meat, Gennady Golovkin appears to have aimed a dig at his Mexican middleweight rival.

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

According to Dan Rafael of, Middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin could be stripped of his IBF Middleweight title should he go through with a fight with Vanes Martirosyan.

Triple G will still get some action in on May 5th, Vanes Martirosyan at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. We all would rather be getting ready for the fight with Canelo, but there is nothing we could do about that. The video then cuts to Golovkin in training before flashing back to the man, who says the ingredient is hard work.

Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 knockouts) was temporarily suspended by the commission on March 23.

"Of course, like everybody said, he's huge Mexican star", Golovkin told reporters in Los Angeles last week.

"Martirosyan is an experienced fighter who has faced and defeated important fighters".

Alvarez was given a six-month suspension instead of the standard one year for first-time violators.

As we have maintained all along, the trace amounts of clenbuterol found in Canelo's system in February came from meat contamination, and we provided the Nevada State Athletic Commission with a great deal of evidence to support those facts.

While the first bout between the two was months in the making, Alvarez's suspension and this unexpected delay could perhaps heighten interest and intrigue for a rematch that the boxing world already pegged as the most anticipated fight of the year. Although most professional sports, global anti-doping agencies and United States boxing commissions treat meat contamination differently from other positive tests, Nevada does not.
