Canelo Enrolls in year round VADA testing

Los Angeles (May 15 2018)- Following a slew of criticism for not enrolling in year round drug testing Saul Canelo Alvarez announced on Twitter the he has enrolled into the VADA program. 

“I want to let you know that I just signed the contract with @Vada_testing for year round testing” – @Canelo

The announcement follows a wave of criticism after being dropped from WBC rankings for failing to enroll in the clean boxing program.

Gennady Golovkin promoter Tom Loeffler has expressed that any future deal would involve year round testing. This move clears that hurdle, making a potential September rematch still possible.

Alvarez’s enrollment sets a precedent for future positive tests from anyone in the sport.

Test year round, or be scorned.

Canelo’s choice to preserve his reputation goes a long way to rebuilding his credibility with critics of his “contaminated meat” defense for testing positive for clenbuterol in February.
