Loeffler: GGG Rematch Can Help Canelo’s Image
Gennady Golovkin’s anger towards Canelo Alvarez’ failing two drug test is very real, according to Tom Loeffler.
Loeffler who is the promoter of the IBO, WBA, WBC middleweight champion claims that Golovkin doesn’t buy Alvarez’ excuse of tainted beef being the reason of his testing positive twice for Clenbuterol.
“Triple G feels that when you’re at that level, you should be held to a higher standard,” Loeffler said to the Press Enterprise. “Regardless of how a substance got into your body, you need to know what you’re eating.
“And athletes at that level can afford to have the type of training camps or the type of food preparation where you don’t take that type of a chance of not knowing what gets in your body.”
Loeffler believes the September 15th rematch against Golovkin can do a lot to rehabbing Alvarez’ image.
“I know Triple G was extremely disappointed and frustrated with the positive tests,” Loeffler said. “As I’ve said before, had Triple G tested positive, everybody would have jumped on him.
“And so I think Canelo took a big hit and this is the fight that can rehabilitate his image.”
