Q & A With Larry Merchant:
The Saul "Canelo" Alvarez Situation
 
By William Trillo
It’s been a couple days and by now we have all had a chance to digest the Canelo tainted meat story and come up with our own conclusions on the matter. That being said I still was looking to hear the opinion of an expert. That’s when I decided to give renowned boxing announcer Larry Merchant a call. If anyone could put this situation into perspective it’s Merchant. Always candid and always matter of fact, I knew Larry would have plenty to say on this hot topic. As expected Larry didn’t disappoint. Check out our exclusive interview:

April’s Fool
 

By William Trillo
Saul “Canelo” Alvarez halfheartedly stated, "I am truly shocked about what has happened and for those who have doubts and suspicions about my integrity, I have always been and always will be clean fighter."

The lack of any remorse shown by a fighter who had to withdraw from one of the biggest fights of the year due to his own negligence spoke volumes. After testing dirty not once but twice for the performance enhancing drug Clenbuterol, Alvarez still held firm to his tainted Mexican meat excuse.

What we have here is a clear cut case of denial.  Click Here For Full Blog

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez has withdrew himself from the May 5th showdown with Gennady "GGG" Golovkin. Sensing he was unlikely to be cleared by the Nevada State Athletic Commission at his scheduled April 18th meeting Alvarez tucked his tail and ran. The NSAC has temporarily suspended the Mexican superstar for twice testing positive for a banned substance (Clenbuterol) in February. When The NSAC postponed the April 10 meeting to April 18 last week it was pretty clear the rematch was in jeopardy. And now it's officially cancelled.

  Boxing, A Volcano In Constant Eruption  
By Mauricio Sulaimán - WBC President
I miss so much writing my weekly column, which I will certainly continue from now on. This year began with extreme demands for travel, meetings, and activities all over which is shaping 2018 as yet another unbelievable year for boxing.

My dear father, Jose Sulaiman, often described boxing as “a volcano in constant eruption” – one day a huge problem or controversy arises, then it is resolved just to wake up the following day with a new one. The WBC has 166 affiliated nations and thus the complexities in administering the activities worldwide. Different standards, practices, and cultures make effective and efficient communications a real challenge.
