Canelo Álvarez doping: When was it, what substance and how long did they suspend it

There are few dark episodes in the career of Saúl ‘Canelo’ Álvarez, but the only one reminded of him is a six-month suspension. Here we tell you about the doping of Canelo Alvarez, what substance did you consume and when was it?

It must be remembered that the Mexican boxer’s doping case was not intentional, within his diet he consumed contaminated meat and that was what the doping threw. Many Mexican athletes who are suspended in the United States go through something similar.

All this happened prior to his fight against Gennady Golovkin, which had to be held on May 5 of that year.

The Commission made the decision unanimously in a hearing, where the least possible suspension was imposed for the doping actions that can be established. It was established that Canelo did not intentionally consume the substance, this according to the case report.

The sanction was six months, according to the regulations, an athlete is guilty regardless of whether he intentionally consumed the substance or not.

“Saúl Álvarez cooperated with the director’s investigation of the positive urinalysis and provided information related to his diet in the days prior to the collection of the urine specimens for urinalysis, including his statement that he consumed meat during that time.” said the assistant attorney general for the state of Nevada, Caroline Bateman.

The Mexican boxer ingested the substance by eating meat contaminated with clenbuterol in our country. He was sanctioned for six months, from February to August 2018, he had to postpone his fight against Gennady Golovkin.
