Amir Khan Makes Bold Claim About Canelo After Failed Drugs Test

Amir Khan Makes

Amir Khan returns to the boxing ring next week for the first time since been knocked out cold by Canelo Alvarez a couple of years ago at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

Since then Khan has went through and overcame a number of personal issues outside the ring and most recently had a successful run on a reality TV show in the UK where he came across well and seemed to win over a lot of new fans.

Now however it’s back to business for Khan who takes on Phil Lo Greco next week in Liverpool but Khan is still smarting from defeat a couple of years ago to Mexican boxer Canelo Alvarez.

Canelo recently failed a drugs test which caused his rematch with Gennady Golovkin to be called off and speaking to The Telegraph, Khan said the following of his own bout with Canelo a couple of years back:

“I’m not saying he was on something when I fought him, but you could see he’d put on a lot of weight. I hope he was clean when I fought him, he’s always going to say he was clean. Only God knows.”

A subtle jab at Canelo without doubt.

Canelo will learn his fate later this month when he goes before the NSAC to find out if he will receive a suspension from the sport or not.
