Hearing set on Canelo Alvarez positive drug test

LAS VEGAS (AP) Canelo Alvarez will have to explain how he tested positive for performance enhancing drugs if his May 5 middleweight title rematch with Gennady Golovkin is to go forward.

The Nevada Athletic Commission has suspended the Mexican superstar pending the April 10 hearing on his two positive tests for Clenbuterol. Alvarez does not have to appear at the hearing in Las Vegas, though his representatives do.

The rematch of the September fight that ended in a draw has been highly anticipated in boxing circles, and will make both fighters millions of dollars. While Alvarez is technically suspended, the only real meaning of the suspension is that there will be a hearing on the positive tests since the fight is not scheduled until May 5 at the T-Mobile arena on the Las Vegas Strip.
