Yeah, it's the trace amount of it that seems pretty convincing. With Canelo's wealth, he should probably be importing his beef after the first time he had clenbuterol in his system, but whatever. I was looking forward to the fight but I imagine we'll see it later this year. 

What is the testing system like in Mexico for regional/national level fighters? Does it exist? 

Its becoming more of an issue now.  Years Ago Erik Morales fails 2 tests for clenbuterol before his rematch with Danny Garcia.  The USADA, State Athletic Commission, Promoters and Network all knew he failed but the fight happened anyway.  Then after he was bludgeoned in the fight and retired then he got a suspension.  Canelo should have known better but they must be cutting back at Golden Boy

Jermall Charlo just flatlined Hugo Centeno Jr. over on Showtime thus making himself the 29th current mandatory opponent for Golovkin. Jermall is a bigger name than Derevychenko but at the same time, both fight on Showtime and with PBC affiliated promoters. I don't see how this doesn't end with Golovkin losing at least one title. Both high risk opponents and Golovkin can make money on a possible trilogy with Canelo.

I feel the WBC title is as good as gone since a GGG/Charlo fight will never happen.  IBF who knows.  Lou DiBella is stomping his feet about GGG should be stripped or fight his guy.  Of course whether or not his guy deserves to be the number one contender is an argument for another day

I remember when people use to hail the IBF as the best of the alphabet orgs because they never did interim titles. Now they are doing interim belts. They had an interim title fight at 168 three weeks before Truax defended against DeGale in a rematch. I can see that happening at middleweight just to appease DiBella.

Chock full of WBC news today.  They wont strip GGG of the belt but said the winner of the rescheduled Canelo-GGG fight must fight the mandatory next.  Which makes me think it will be close again and the WBC will order a third fight.  Mikey Garcia will fight Robert Easter Jr next.  I'm not a big Easter Jr. fan but am intrigued on seeing how Mikey deals with his ranginess.  Keith Thurman has given up the WBC Welterweight belt because he just cant get healthy.

Danny Garcia vs. Shawn Porter for the vacant WBC 147lbs. belt is a good fight. But I mean, that's just cause Garcia and Porter don't fight on a regular basis and anything to keep these guys in worthwhile fights and active is good.

Yes its a shame.  I know there are only so many TV dates to be had but these guys need to dust themselves off more often.  Now they have gone and moved Adonis Stevenson's once a year fight to Toronto.  The ACC will be mighty empty that night

HBO Boxing 

Vargas vs. Hovhanissyan was a great fight and Munguia looked huge compared to Ali. Munguia knocked Ali down 4 or 5 times depending on if you count one as a slip or a knock down. 

ESPN 

Lomachenko vs. Linares was my favorite fight of the two shows and Loma won in the 10th round with a sweet liver shot.

Lomachenko ducking the hook and unleashing hell on Linares before the finish was so good.

Loma fought well.  Linares is a slick boxer and no pushover.  Loma is pushing his limits though since he looked rather small against Linares.  He got a little sloppy with his footwork and got knocked down for it but he didnt seem that bothered by it.  They are saying Loma will probably fight Ray Beltran next and Mikey Garcia will fight Robert Easter Jr. next.  If all shakes down as it should Garcia vs Loma is intriguing.  

Poor Sadam Ali.  He never seemed to be a particularly large Welterweight and he looked mismatched in there.  Amazed that only 1 pound separated them come fight time.  Sadam ducks no one though.  Most guys wouldn't have Munguia as a late replacement

Stevenson is at that Sergio Martinez, wheels-come-flying-off point of his career. DiBella did a decent job of protecting Sergio as long as he could. If Adonis can't sell tickets, what good is he really to Yvon Michel? Now if Eleider Alvarez beats Kovalev somehow then obviously he has use. However, if Adonis loses the Jack rematch, it blows that big Quebec showdown into smithereens. As a result, don't expect Stevenson-Jack II to be made before August 4 if it is made at all.
