GGG’s Trainer Wants Alvarez Investigated
Following Monday’s revelation that Canelo Alvarez tested positive for traces of Clenbuterol, Abel Sanchez, who trains Gennady Golovkin, hopes the Nevada State Athletic Commission’s investigation is thorough.
As reported by Boxing Scene, Alvarez and his camp claim the positive came from contaminated meat from Mexico, which has been the explanation for several Mexican fighters the past few years.
Executive director of the Nevada State Athletic Commission, Bob Bennett, claims the commission is investigating Alvarez’ test, Sanchez hopes they are thorough and do not turn a blind eye to it.
In an interview with Yahoo Sports, Sanchez expressed concerns that it may get brushed under the rug, as is possible with other commissions.
“It just seems there are certain commissions in this game that are very lenient toward certain fighters, Certain fighters get relaxed rules, I guess you could say, and everyone else has to follow certain rules.”
“This time, this is a big enough event that the commission needs to seriously investigate all that has happened in the past. I know he’s never tested positive before this, but this stuff [Clenbuterol], it’s not something you start using because of a whim. People who are cheaters, if he is, and I’m not saying it’s not the beef, because it could be the meat, but let’s make this investigation go deep, because you just don’t start all of a sudden using that.”
