WBC To Have Rep At Canelo Hearing

 

While Canelo Alvarez will not be in person for his hearing with the Nevada State Athletic Commission, a representative of the WBC will be in the room on April 18th.

World Boxing Council President Mauricio Sulaiman in an interview with Boxing Scene, believes that all the facts will be looked over and considered, including all of Alvarez’ past tests under the WBC’s Clean Boxing Program.

“We do not know how Nevada will proceeds. He is getting a trial, he has already been found guilty, we hope that all the facts will be analyzed and that the final result will be favorable as possible for Canelo,” said Sulaiman.

Sulaiman also confirmed that the WBC will have a representative at the hearing, and will report the  commission’s final decision.

“At the public hearing with Canelo, we will be present as listeners to see the entire process, we provided valuable information that can help analyze the case in its entirety, specifically the clenbuterol,” Sulaiman said.

The WBC leader feels a six month suspension, backdated to the first failed test in early February, is the best option and would not affect potential rematch between Alvarez and Gennady Golovkin in September.

“I hope so, that in September they will face each other again, but we have to wait for the decision to be made by Nevada, which will decide many things for the future of both fighters [with their ruling],” Sulaiman said.
