Bennett Claims Money Won’t Influence Canelo Decision

In a report published on Thursday, the Nevada Athletic Commission has filed an official complaint against Canelo Alvarez, stemming from his two positive tests for the drug, clenbuterol.

Now, in a report from Boxing Scene, Bob Bennett, the executive director of the governing body, claims that the money that would be gained from allowing Alvarez to fight Gennady Golovkin is not a factor in the ruling. Especially with the NSAC committed to stay firm with the regulations put into place in September 2016.

“Since Anthony Marnell has been at the helm [as NSAC Chairman], he’s been following our regulations.. NAC 467, the ones that were effective on September 9 2016, and we are following them to the letter of the law… we are just being consistent with other unarmed combatants who have tested positive for PEDs – regardless of the amount of money involved or the economic impact – we are not going to be swayed by that, we are going to stick to what our regulations state and that’s what the fighters can expect from us,” Bennett said
