Boxer ‘Canelo’ banned for 6 months

Guadalajara boxer Saul “Canelo” Alvarez has been banned form the sport for six months after testing positive for clenbuterol earlier this year. 

The 27-year-old was forced to cancel his much-anticipated May 5 rematch with Gennady Golovkin, a bout that would have earned him several millions of dollars.  Alvarez claims he ate tainted food in Mexico. Although it is illegal, farmers here often add clenbuterol to cattle feed to improve the quality of the meat.
