By Eliezer Garcia, Real Combat Media Tri-State Correspondent
Las Vegas, NV– A year ago today the Boxing world witness a classic battle for supremacy, between the middleweight kings Saul Canelo Alvarez (48-1-2, 34 KOs) and Gennady GGG Golovkin (38-0-1, 34 KOs). The fight it self-delivered as promised, the fighters delivered, but the end results left the world hungry for more. All but the judges at ringside saw the fight in favor of Gennady Golovkin. 12 brutal rounds were not enough to determine who should be crowned the middleweight king.
The rematch was originally scheduled for May, when Saul Alvarez tested positive for Clenbuterol found in his system. The Nevada state athletic commission ordered to suspended Canelo for 6 months and the rematch was immediately canceled. Since then Golovkin’s camp has openly expressed their issue with Canel’s test results. Accusing the fighter of cheating and not being respectful of the sport.
