VIDEO: Gennady Golovkin trolls Canelo Alvarez in new commercial; Mexican reacts

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.

In two samples taken on February 17 and 20, the Mexican tested positive for Clenbuterol.

The Nevada Athletic Commission reduced Alvarez's one-year ban to six months after agreeing a settlement with the former two-division world champion. Alvarez's promoters say he will return to the ring in September. That could place a rematch with middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin in September, provided Golovkin successfully defends his IBO, WBA and WBC titles in a fight against Vanes Martirosyan on May 5.

Triple G will still get some action in on May 5th, Vanes Martirosyan at the StubHub Center in Carson, Calif. The video then cuts to Golovkin in training before flashing back to the man, who says the ingredient is hard work. "I'm sparring, I'm on weight", Martirosyan recently told the Los Angeles Times.

Kevin Durant to opt out, redo deal with Warriors
Durant would make $26.3 million if he opted in, and Haynes noted that figure was low "for a player of his caliber". With Curry out, it's up to Kevin Durant to play like a superstar.

"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", he said. It's a good show for L.A. Cinco De Mayo. I have a lot of Mexican fans.

But with so little time to properly prepare for a world title fight, opponent options are slim and the fighter's team does not want to be pushed into a situation where their guy has to fight a high-level opponent without the chance to properly prepare.

Saul "Canelo" Alvarez, the brutish Mexican puncher who's been fighting professionally since 15 and Golovkin, the undefeated Kazakh who is considered by many to be the best active fighter in the sport, met in a much-publicized event at the T-mobile Arena - dubbed "Supremacy".

Armenian-American Martirosyan usually fights at light middleweight and has lost both of his title bouts at that level - to Demetrius Andrade in 2013 and Erislandy Lara in 2016.
