As Golovkin trolls him, Canelo Alvarez hit with 6-month suspension

Golovkin, of course, was originally scheduled to take on Canelo Alvarez, but Alvarez failed multiple drug tests and has since been suspended for six months.

Golovkin had been due to fight Canelo Alvarez at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas on the same date, in a blockbuster rematch of their dramatic draw last September. That could place a rematch with middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin in September, provided Golovkin successfully defends his IBO, WBA and WBC titles in a fight against Vanes Martirosyan on May 5.

The IBF have urged Golovkin to fight mandatory challenger Sergiy Derevyanchenko but instead he has arranged to take on 36-3-1 fighter Martirosyan.

The writing was on the wall, in terms of Canelo Alvarez - Gennady Golovkin II being postponed, and now it's being reported that Canelo's been suspended for six months.

If Golovkin (37-0-1, 33 KOs) defeats late substitute Vanes Martirosyan (36-3-1, 21 KOs) on May 5 in Carson, California, the rematch with Alvarez can be rescheduled for Mexican Independence Day weekend in mid-September - the same weekend on which they fought to a heavily disputed draw that most thought GGG won previous year. I respect this sport.

He blamed the positive test on tainted meat from his native Mexico. Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs), 27, of Mexico, did and was rewarded with the light punishment. Best of all, he is ready and wants the fight.

Buffon's rant over red card from Oliver
Oliver awarded Real a 93rd minute penalty, which Cristiano Ronaldo converted to send Los Blancos through 4-3 on aggregate to the semi-finals.


"It will all come down to what the boxing boards and governing bodies say but, in my opinion, if Canelo fights again then it is a sign to other fighters out there that they will only get a slap on the wrist and it's OK to do it".

Armenia-born Martirosyan has primarily fought as a super welterweight and hasn't fought since losing a decision to Erislandy Lara on May 21, 2016. I have a lot of Mexican fans.
