Senator Reid: Mayweather Claimed Canelo Was Doping In 2013
Another person has come out with thoughts regarding the Canelo Alvarez and Gennedy Golovkin situation, retired Nevada Senator, Harry Reid.
Reid, who left his seat in 2017, was a guest on the Sirius-XM At The Fights, and believes that Golovkin won the first encounter between both in September 2017.
Reid then told hosts Randy Gordon and Gerry Cooney, something explosive that Floyd Mayweather told him regarding Alvarez.
“Mayweather always felt Canelo was on something. He said, ‘I’m gonna go ahead and fight him,'” said Senator Reid.
“Mayweather was interested in money and he thought it would hurt the purse. He went ahead and fought the guy and toyed with him.”
Reid also broke down his thoughts on Alvarez’ suspension following failing two tests in February for clenbuterol.
“I am glad the NSAC stepped forward and hope they do something that will allow the penalty to be retro and go back to when it first came out so that in six months or so they can have that fight. The world deserves the fight. These two guys want to fight each other and I hope that can be worked out; maybe this fall they can have the fight. In the meantime, GGG can fight somebody else.”
Reid is of the belief that Alvarez will end up with a six month suspension at his hearing on April 18th. The suspension would be retroactive to his first failed test in February, which would set up for a September fight against Golovkin.
