Sanchez: Canelo Vindicated Himself
After the performance he put in, Gennady Golovkin’s trainer Abel Sanchez believes that Canelo Alvarez vindicated himself for his failed drug tests earlier this year.
Alvarez would test positive in February for the banned substance clenbuterol in two separate tests.
The positive tests would lead to the Nevada State Athletic Commission issuing a six-month suspension and leading the Golovkin and Alvarez rematch being pushed back until September.
“I think he’s vindicated, Sanchez said On The Ropes Boxing Radio. “I think that he fought the kind of fight that his fans and the fans in general expected.”
“He fought the kind of fight that he talked about. He made a mistake and we have to believe that he did it, he was checked twelve to fourteen times for this fight and they were all negative. They put on the kind of fight that clean good fighters put on, giving us the thrills in every round. The pace was unbelievable, it was great to see from the corner.”
