Golovkin Reacts To Canelo Failing PED Test
It took half a week for Gennady Golovkin to publicly react to Canelo Alvarez testing positive for Clenbuterol, and he’s still trying to understand what is happening.
In an interview with ESPN, Golovkin discussed his initial reactions to Alvarez testing positive for the performance enhancer which has been attributed to tainted beef.
“My first reaction, you know, ‘Really?!’ like that. Just ‘Really?! Are you serious?!’ because, you know…I know him, he’s good boxer, you know. Maybe he’s extra boxer, not regular guy. I believe he doesn’t need medicals or like drugs, you know, like that…and right now, test positive, it’s terrible for sport…
Golovkin claims that he’s been clean his entire career, and if you respect boxing you won’t take PEDs.
“I respect my sport because I love clean sport. For me this is, you know, terrible. This is not laboratory, you know? This natural stuff. If you not believe your natural stuff, you use medicals…Right now he’s test positive, it’s crazy.
As of now, Golovkin hopes that the fight won’t be cancelled due to the positive test. The Nevada State Athletic Commission is currently investigating the situation.
