Fight fans learned yesterday that subsequent tests performed on Canelo Alvarez following a positive drugs test revealed that nothing was found in his system.
The report came from The Ring with all signs now pointing to the fight between Canelo and Gennady Golovkin going ahead on May 5th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.
That is pending an investigation completed by the Nevada State Athletic Commission which is currently ongoing.
A story on Ring Magazine yesterday reported that Canelo’s follow-up tests since his now infamous failed test last week – revealed nothing on the banned list was in his system.
Here is how boxing fans have been reacting to the story:
The half life of Clenbuterol is around 48 hours, so it’s hardly surprising that Canelo has since tested negative. It’s like having a breathalyser test 2 days after you failed the first one & proclaiming that there’s now no alcohol in your system

Golden Boy source tells Golden Boy magazine that Golden Boy’s meal ticket is clean now 🙄

So he tested positive twice and then “a source” has since said he was clean? Who is this source?

Of course he did. Nobody is shocked. The damage is already done.

@ghostbailey all clear now. I think I’m gunna give him the benefit of the doubt this once. Could have been eating at a fancy restaurant thinking it was clean but wasn’t. You’re not gunna walk round with slabs of steak in your pocket..

Hmmmm still dubious mate, doesn’t he live and train in San Diego? Surely you’d have to eat a lot of meat for it to show up?

Still tested positive so therefore should be banned #drugscheat

And? He is still a drugs cheat, he mistimed his cycle so tested positive in February but it was out his system in March
