The Mexican's blockbuster rematch with Gennady Golovkin is still set for May 5. If Alvarez, the highest-profile boxer ever to test positive for a performance-enhancing drug, can't convince the majority of the five-person panel that his positive tests were because of contaminated meat, he could be suspended for a time between six months and two years.

"Mr. Alvarez is temporarily suspended by the Nevada State Athletic Commission for his adverse analytical findings, that being clenbuterol, on February 17 and 20".

Two weeks ago, it was revealed that Canelo had tested positive for banned substance clenbuterol in two separate drug tests that were issued in February.

The 27-year-old fighter will have a chance to be reinstated by the commission in April 10, but he could have his suspension extended, which means he could be ineligible for a fight with Golovkin.

"We respect the Nevada State Athletic Commission process and will vigorously present Canelo's case throughout", the statement read.

And he also made claims that he felt Canelo was a dirty fighter in the aftermath of their first bout, which took place last September at T-Mobile - and saw the contest end in a controversial split draw.

He ended the match with four goals to his name and also the respect of the Premier League fans. He won't be fit enough to be a full-time starter for the Galaxy, at least in the short term.

Golovkin claims to have photos and video which show evidence of injections on Canelo's body.

"Again with Mexican meat?"

"I told you, it's not Mexican meat". "This is Canelo. This is his team".

"I don't think I would have had the same amount of benefits he has had", Golovkin said.

The undefeated champion created a storm of headlines, when he openly accused Canelo of being a drug cheat. Golovkin is unbeaten in 38 professional fights, with one draw. "Then there wouldn't be any silly questions about meat or fruits or chocolate". As soon as he can get him back in the ring, whether it's on May 5 or on a future date, he'll do his best to knock out Canelo. "We met today and Bob said they had to give him the suspension per their regulations, but he pointed out that Canelo complied with every request and that he passed multiple tests given to him since the failures".
