Canelo and his handlers have attributed the positive tests to food contamination, which is a common problem with the meat in Mexico. "He proves he gets benefits from everyone and he can get away with it", Golovkin said of Alvarez.
35, is due to face Alvarez for the second time in Las Vegas on May 5 after drawing their first highly anticipated meeting. Obviously we are training different than we did eight years ago because he is getting a little bit older, but until somebody really dominates him in a way that the speed is too much or the boxing is too much, then I'll say he's getting old. "Canelo is cheating. They're using these drugs, and everybody is just trying to pretend it's not happening!"
'Before the first fight, I knew he was not clean, ' Golovkin said. "Have a look at the pictures they post when he uses some pills". It was pretty obvious when his muscles were all with traces of injections.
Alvarez's test results, which he claims came as a result of eating contaminated meat, are now being investigated by the Nevada State Athletic Commission, and the fighter could face a ban if found guilty. "That's why I never use any drugs, because I know there won't be any preferences to me".
Golden Boy denied the accusations.
Golden Boy Promotions President Eric Gomez, who promotes Canelo, believes Golovkin is displaying fear and he's simply preparing post-fight excuses in the event of defeat. "(Golovkin) doesn't sound like a confident fighter. I guess he has a lot of insecurities. There is an investigation (into the clenbuterol) and we are cooperating. The fight is scheduled to go on, but any hopes the NSAC may have had about it being controversy-free after the September judging snafu have been dashed. When it is complete, all the facts will come out.
Golovkin, meanwhile, has revealed he will offer Billy Joe Saunders a blockbuster world-middleweight title unification fight if the rematch with Canelo is called off.
The Brit has made little secret of his desire to go head-to-head with Golovkin after calling out the Kazakhstani world champion after his dominant points victory over David Lemieux in Canada on December 17.
