WBC President: Alvarez Needs To Rehab Image

Now with his suspension set in stone, WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman believes its time to to allow Canelo Alvarez to get past the two failures for clenbuterol.

This week, Alvarez was handed a six month suspension by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for two positive tests for the fat burning drug, back in February

Sulaiman thinks that  Canelo should step away and take his suspension to get past the incident and move forward with his career.

“It was established that [Canelo’s clenbuterol use] was not done with malice… it is definitely a point that clarifies what we have been fighting about, because the problem of clenbuterol is well known and there is a lot of information in Mexico,” said Sulaiman to ESPN Deportes.

“This is a way for Canelo to clean up his image, now he has to take advantage of this to defend his cleanliness despite the damage done, he must continue to produce negative test results and demonstrate that he is a clean fighter.

“The [NSAC] have their regulations, I feel it is time to turn the page and shore up the positive, nothing is going to correct itself by looking back. And now [the suspension] opens up the possibility of the important fight in September and that has to be rescued. This experience is done and now we must refocus our attention because the uncertainty is over, because there is a fight on May 5 and a suspension was given.”
