Tom Loeffler has revealed that Mexican star Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez had a post-fight VADA test cancelled following his controversial split decision victory over Gennady Golovkin in September.

Alvarez, who infamously failed a doping test for the banned substance clenbuterol in May, had been signed up to year-round testing by the doping control agency. However, VADA – considered the ‘gold standard’ for anti-doping in sport – appear to have flouted regulations with regards to their post-fight testing, according to Loeffler, Golovkin’s promoter.

“VADA scheduled a random test for GGG a week after the fight.

“I made sure that Canelo was also going to be tested. Next day the random test was cancelled.

“Strange that it was scheduled then cancelled, maybe Canelo was already in Mexico eating steaks celebrating his “decision”.” barbed Loeffler.

Loeffler would go on to state that it was in fact VADA – and not Canelo – that cancelled the post-fight random test, claiming that it was “the first time a random test was ever cancelled.”

“I didn’t say Canelo cancelled the last test.

“VADA cancelled – but [this] was the first time a random test was ever cancelled.” Loeffler finished.

With Alvarez’s well-documented history with failed drug tests, the latest claims from Loeffler will no doubt raise suspicions of the two-weight World champion.

Golovkin, who is yet to announce his return to the ring following his first career loss to ‘Canelo’, has been vocal about his desire for a trilogy fight with the Mexican superstar.

However, Alvarez is due to return to the ring on December 15th, where he will challenge Liverpool’s Rocky Fielding for Fielding’s lightly-regarded WBA ‘Regular’ World title at super middleweight.
