Canelo Alvarez Receives Six Month Suspension

Overnight the IBF of which Golovkin holds their respective world middleweight title, spoke how to ESPN saying they would not approve of the fight and would have to consider stripping Golovkin.

Alvarez being cleared to return in September may deny Britain's WBO middleweight champion Billy Joe Saunders a shot at Golovkin for now.

The positive tests came from two random urine tests in February that were conducted by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Agency in Alvarez's hometown of Guadalajara, Mexico. His suspension is retroactive to the date of his first failed test, meaning he is eligible to box again after August 17. The hotly-anticipated rematch, which had been scheduled for Cinco De Mayo, was canceled when Alvarez withdrew from the fight.

"Vanes hasn't been active, but he had been looking for a fight", Golovkin's promoter Tom Loeffler told Yahoo.

Proceeds from Monday's auction will be used to repay Bon-Ton's creditors, according to the State Journal. Younkers, which began as a family-run dry goods business in Keokuk, has been an Iowa retailer since 1856.

Per Nevada's boxing regulations, first-time offenders face a one-year ban that could be cut in half based on cooperation.

The fighter, who did not attend the Nevada State Athletic Commission hearing in Las Vegas on Wednesday, said earlier this year he was "surprised and bothered" by the adverse test findings. "Canelo and Golden Boy Promotions respect the rules of Nevada and are therefore satisfied with the settlement agreement reached today", Golden Boy Promotions said in a statement via the Associated Press. "I am happy to be back on HBO and fighting at StubHub Center because they have great boxing fans".

Golovkin would love to break Hopkins' record by smashing hated rival Canelo Alvarez, and it would provide fitting closure to the whole Golovkin-Canelo feud, which saw two years of stalled fight talks lead to a controversial draw and then this most recent debacle over banned substances.

Alvarez's team has claimed that the clenbuterol levels of the fighter were consistent with those that have been found in athletes, who have eaten contaminated meat. He added that "by allowing Clenbuterol to enter his system, Alvarez engaged in conduct that reflected discredit to unarmed combat and he is guilty of foul or unsportsmanlike conduct that was detrimental to a contest".
