Yesterday, Canelo announced his decision to fall back on the Golovkin rematch.
Under pressure from the Nevada State Athletic Commission following a pair of failed drug tests, Canelo Alvarez has withdrawn from his May 5 middleweight championship rematch against Gennady Golovkin in Las Vegas. Golden Boy, Alvarez’s promoter, made the announcement Wednesday during a media conference call, just 32 days out from the fight. “I am truly shocked by what has happened,” Alvarez said through a translator. “I don’t want anyone to have doubts about my integrity. I have always been a clean fighter and will be a clean fighter. (CBS Sports)
In early March, 50 Cent reacted to Alvarez initially failing a drug test.

The same week, Canelo sparked headlines after failing a drug test.
Mexican superstar Canelo Alvarez, who is in training for his mega rematch with unified middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin, has tested positive for the banned substance clenbuterol. Golovkin and Alvarez are scheduled to meet on May 5 (HBO PPV) at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas in a rematch of their hugely controversial draw from September. It is unclear whether the positive test will affect the fight. (ESPN)
