    As part of the voluntary testing program that Canelo Alvarez insisted on ahead of his May 5 fight, one of his results came back positive for trace levels of Clenbuterol, consistent with meat contamination that has impacted dozens of athletes in Mexico over the last years.

    As Daniel Eichner, Director of SMRTL, the WADA-accredited lab that conducted the tests stated in his letter today, "These values are all within the range of what is expected from meat contamination."


    Mexican meat, damn you!

    WADA still has no minimum threshold for Clen, right?
    I guess that means that the fight's off.

    If anything it means that Canelo's people are way less professional than I thought.

    Its so sad that multimillionaire sports and film stars still can't source a good steak in this day and age, and are forced to buy meat tainted with illegal growth inducing chemicals from dodgy ranchers.

    Something must be done about this - look at poor Sylvester and Saul - practically wasting away...

    So if Canelo is prevented from fighting in May because of this test, who steps in?

    Does this carry from an animal who has had this to a human who would eat the meat from said animal?

    I know people tend to go down the whole "i have breathing problems" route....but it is probably one of the most well known substances out there and i wouldnt imagine anyone would ever get caught with this as it is so easy to avoid

    IT'll still happen. Erik Morales fought after being tested for clenbuterol.

    Those god damn cows and their Roids.

    This sucks. Hope the fight can stay on. I dont think Clen will get a fight cancelled.

    This is what WADA says about it:
    I imagine that the fight will probably go ahead as planned as it's in everyone's interest, and Canelo probably does have plausible deniability (as the level of plausible deniability will be much lower for the biggest star in the sport leading up to the most lucrative fight in the sport at the moment). Why someone with Canelo's resources would risk eating beef from Mexico when it's widely known that a lot of it is tainted with clenbuterol is beyond me (if that is actually the source of the positive test).
