NSAC Suspend Saul Alvarez, Rematch With Golovkin Could Be Jeopardy

The Nevada State Athletic Commission has temporarily suspended Saul Canelo Alvarez due to his two positive tests for the banned substance clenbuterol.


NSAC executive Bob Bennett informed on Friday. "Mr. Alvarez is temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his adverse analytical findings, that being clenbuterol, on Feb. 17 and 20," Bennett said in a statement. "A commission hearing is scheduled for April 10, 2018, to hear from Mr. Alvarez."


As the investigation is ongoing, the Commission made the decision to suspend Alvarez as per their rules. The suspension of Alvarez could potentially put the rematch with Gennady Golovkin, scheduled for May 5 in Las Vegas, in jeopardy.
