Gennady Golovkin trolls Canelo Alvarez in new commercial; Mexican reacts

VIDEO: Gennady Golovkin trolls Canelo Alvarez in new commercial; Mexican reacts

It's a good show for L.A. Cinco De Mayo. And in the process, there was another punch at the credibility for Alvarez, who tested positive for clenbuterol and blamed it on some contaminated beef.

Middleweight boxer Saul "Canelo" Alvarez has been suspended for six months for a failed test for steroids, pushing the date for a rematch with Gennady Golovkin further back.

The ban was passed unanimously at a hearing on Wednesday and will be lifted on August 17 - in time for a potential Gennady Golovkin rematch in September.

Alvarez and Golovkin fought to a controversial draw in their first meeting in Las Vegas last September, a fight most neutrals believed unified champion Golovkin had won.

The Mexican middleweight had been due to face Golovkin but his place has already been filled by Vanes Martirosyan. Loeffler acknowledged the letter from the IBF and told ESPN that Golovkin plans to fight May 5 and said their side will seek an exception, adding that he hopes the IBF will grant one.

Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 knockouts) was temporarily suspended by the commission on March 23.

"All the controversy around it is going to make a much bigger promotion whenever the fight does happen".

But with so little time to properly prepare for a world title fight, opponent options are slim and the fighter's team does not want to be pushed into a situation where their guy has to fight a high-level opponent without the chance to properly prepare.

His May 5 fight with Golovkin was called off earlier because of the doping, but with the Nevada Athletic Commission suspension retroactive to February he would be available for a possible fight with "Triple G" on the traditional Mexican Independence Day weekend in September. He would later cite meat contamination in his homeland as the cause of the results. Golovkin has sold out the most iconic arenas of the world, including T-Mobile Arena, Madison Square Garden, O2 Arena, The Fabulous Forum and StubHub Center.
