CANELO ALVAREZ has announced that he has now enrolled in a drug testing programme conducted by VADA, the Voluntary Anti-Doping Association.

On social media the Mexican star proclaimed, “I want to let you know that I just signed the contract with VADA testing for year round testing.”

In February Alvarez failed two drug tests, with traces of clenbuterol being detected. That ultimately led to him withdrawing from the highly lucrative rematch with Gennady Golovkin that had been scheduled for May. The Nevada State Athletic Commission did hand him a six-month suspension.
