Earlier this week the news broke that whilst in training camp, Canelo Alvarez had failed a drugs test.
The word out of the Canelo camp is that this failed test was caused by eating contaminated meat and quite frankly, I believe him.
Animals who have been supplemented with clenbuterol produce contaminated meat, which if eaten can produce a positive test.
Canelo’s promotional team have stated that the amount of clenbuterol found is consistent with levels found as a result of eating contaminated meat.
Additionally, tests conducted on Canelo since the failed test have also all come back clean.
