Alvarez banned for six months over failed drug test

Golovkin called him a liar and implied he had always been a doper and accused him even further, stating he was doping during their first bout as well.

Should Triple G beat Martirosyan (36-3-1, 21 KOs), the rematch with Alvarez likely will take place later in the year.

Alvarez blamed contaminated beef in Mexico for his positive test and vowed to plead his case before the commission.

Alvarez is due to face the Nevada State Athletic Commission (NSAC) today but he has been provisionally suspended for the infraction.

Torres sent a letter on Tuesday to Gennady Golovkin's attorney Ron DiNicola, and Alex Dombroff, the attorney for promoter Lou DiBella, promoter of IBF mandatory challenger Sergiy Derevyanchenko, outlining the reasons for the IBF's refusal the grant approval for Golovkin-Martirosyan, a source with knowledge of the letter told ESPN.

Frenchman becomes first person in world to get 'third face' transplant
Hamon stayed at the Georges-Pompidou hospital without a face, unable to see, hear or speak until the second transplant took place. He was given blood treatment for almost three months before a 22-year-old donor came forward for a second transplant.

The ruling means Alvarez, who did not attend the hearing, will be free to fight again in August - raising the possibility of a rescheduled Golovkin fight in September. Golovkin has proved himself to be a sterling gate attraction in his previous three fights in the Southland, selling out The Fabulous Forum twice, in 2016 and 2015, and setting the all time attendance record for boxing at StubHub Center in 2014. Best of all, he is ready and wants the fight.

The two fighters have traded verbal blows in the months since Alvarez's positive drug test came to light. "When they asked me if I'd take this fight, I said yes". I have a lot of Mexican fans.

Golovkin was to defend his World Boxing Association (WBA), World Boxing Council (WBC), International Boxing Federation (IBF), and International Boxing Organization (IBO) middleweight titles against Canelo Alvarez on that date in a highly-anticipated rematch in Las Vegas.

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, the brutish Mexican puncher who's been fighting professionally since 15 and Golovkin, the undefeated Kazakh who is considered by many to be the best active fighter in the sport, met in a much-publicized event at the T-mobile Arena - dubbed "Supremacy".
