Gennady Golovkin Confirms Opponent For Cinco De Mayo Title Defense

Gennady Golovkin to fight Vanes Martirosyan on 5 May in Los Angeles Gennady Golovkin Confirms Opponent For Cinco De Mayo Title Defense

Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KO's) tested positive for trace amounts of the substance in random urine tests conducted by the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association on February 17 and February 20 in his hometown of Guadalajara, Mexico.

That's not Golvkin's fault, and he's grabbed a new opponent for Cinco de Mayo weekend.

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez has been handed a six-month ban by the Nevada State Athletic Commission as a result of a failed drugs test.

The suspension is back-dated to February 17, the date of Alvarez's first positive test. They were initially to settle the score on May 5 at T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas, but the fight was officially called off on April 3 after Alvarez withdrew from the bout.

"Martirosyan is an experienced fighter who has faced and defeated important fighters. We are prepared for Gennady to break his own StubHub Center attendance record for a boxing event, which he set in 2014", said Tom Loeffler, Golovkin's promoter. Vanes Martirosyan brings a passionate Armenian fan base from nearby Glendale and an aggressive style of fighting. "He has my respect and I am training hard to defend my titles against him", Golovkin said in a release. We all would rather be getting ready for the fight with Canelo, but there is nothing we could do about that.

The series, which debuted on SEGA's Dreamcast system in 1999, will be coming to Xbox One , PlayStation 4 , and PC later this year. Sega itself is not making a distinction either way in its somewhat sparse "Shenmue" website .

"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 a clean fighter", Alvarez said.

"I told you, it's not Mexican meat", Golovkin added.

While the first bout between the two was months in the making, Alvarez's suspension and this unexpected delay could perhaps heighten interest and intrigue for a rematch that the boxing world already pegged as the most anticipated fight of the year.

Saunders was keen to face the Kazakh KO artist in the summer but his team are now expected to wait on the more lucrative Alvarez rematch.

Martirosyan has lost three of his last six fights, including to Erislandy Lara for the WBA super welterweight crown last May.
