It was recently revealed that boxing phenom Canelo Alvarez has failed a drug test. Now UFC fighters are coming forward to offer their thoughts on the matter.
Canelo Alvarez is gearing up for a highly anticipated rematch against Gennady Golovkin. The two pugilist warriors first faced off in 2017, with the fight ending in a controversial draw. Now the two boxers are set to step back inside the squared circle on May 5.
That being said, Golden Boy Promotions announced on Monday that Canelo Alvarez failed a drug test for the substance clenbuterol. Alvarez has since claimed that the banned substance entered his system through contaminated beef, rather than knowing use of a performance enhancing drug.
Now fighters are beginning to come forward to offer their thoughts on the matter.
Former UFC competitor Paul Redmond first took to Twitter to state, “So Canelo’s on the sauce then.”
