Gennady Golovkin CONFIRMS Canelo Alvarez replacement and risks LOSING title

Golovkin Takes

Gennady Golovkin to fight Vanes Martirosyan on 5 May in Los Angeles

Now Alvarez can reschedule his fight against Gennady Golovkin, who he was supposed to fight May 5.

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez was slapped with a six-month suspension in a unanimous decision by the Nevada State Athletic Commission Wednesday in the wake of his two positive tests for the banned substance clenbuterol.

"He's been training and he's interested in fighting Triple-G".

The Mexican middleweight had been due to face Golovkin but his place has already been filled by Vanes Martirosyan.

Martirosyan holds a pro-record of 36-3-1 and while he has competed for several titles in the past, the oddsmakers will no doubt be especially tough on his chances as he attempts to upset one of the world's top pound-for-pound talents. The red-headed fighter is one of the most recognizable athletes in Mexico and one of the country's biggest sports heroes.

Martirosyan has lost three of his last six fights, including to Erislandy Lara for the WBA/IBO super welterweight crown in May of 2016. And that should be financially convenient for Las Vegas, as it keeps Golovkin-Alvarez II lined up for Mexican Independence Day weekend in September, if all parties are so inclined. I never back down and give 100%.

Neither Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) nor members of Golden Boy Promotions were present at the hearing, but the fighter denied over the phone intentionally taking the banned substance clenbuterol, which appeared in trace amounts during a pair of out-of-competition urine tests collected on February 17 and February 20 in his home country of Mexico. He did remove himself from the fight recently after news of the results. "Best of all, he is ready and wants the fight".

"I'm going to take full advantage of this fight". It's a good show for L.A. Cinco De Mayo. It's about my boxing story and what type of fighter I am.
