Golovkin Blames Canelo’s Team For Positive Test

Gennady Golovkin believed for a moment last week that his highly anticipated rematch with Canelo Alvarez would be cancelled, when Alvarez tested positive for clenbuterol.

Golovkin said that it was unfortunate not only for Alvarez, but also for the sport of boxing. He also feels that Alvarez’ team needed to do more in taking precautions with the Mexican star’s food, due to the well know issues involving clenbutrerol in Mexican cows.

“If it was meat, or milk or food is another story. The commission told us that he tested positive and it’s very bad, but I think it’s not a meat problem, it’s not just his problem, it’s a problem of his whole team. If they are professionals they must understand and know what they eat, his position.. it is not a problem of the meat. He looks very bad right now, many people see him as something negative for the sport, it is a problem of his team,” Golovkin said to ESPN Deportes.

“(The news of Canelo’s positive test) brought me different emotions. I think Canelo is a very good athlete, a good boxer, who does not need medicine or drugs, for me it is terrible and for all athletes who respect sport, clean sport, this is not good.”
