Well this doesn’t sound good.

The Nevada State Athletic Commission’s Bob Bennett has filed an official complaint against Canelo Alvarez for his two failed drug tests for clenbuterol. In addition, the matter will now be adressed during NSAC’s regularly scheduled April 18th meeting rather than on April 10th.

The complaint is a wee bit ominous.

Remember, refunds are available.

The way I see it, even if it was contamination, Canelo knew that Mexican beef has a non-negligible possibility of being contaminated and had both the money and the means to get less-questionable meat. It will certainly be interesting to see what sort of questions they ask Canelo on the 18th.

On the plus side, Lou DiBella has confirmed that IBF mandatory challenger Sergiy Derevyanchenko is ready to step in if things go south.

You know, maybe it’s for the best that they haven’t announced a single undercard bout yet.
