Canelo owns to use of doping before fight with Golovkin

Saul Alvarez disqualified for a period of six month due to doping.

Mexican boxer Saul Canelo Alvarez has announced the doping test for clenbuterol before the second fight with his opponent from Kazakhstan Gennady Golovkin lies on his conscience, informs.

 In his words, he just was miscognizant about the extent of the problem with contaminated illegal preparations of meat at home. Now the boxer decided to switch completely to a vegetarian diet.

I do not want to involve anyone else in this incident. It was a mistake I made because I did not read about it and was not aware of how serious the problem is with meat in Mexico. But I did not do anything deliberately, I did nothing to try to improve my performance, I would never go for something like that. It was a mistake and nothing more. I was not enlightened about this problem in Mexico. I made a mistake and will not repeat it again.

After what happened to me, I took a lot of precautions. Even too much, I think it's extreme. It got to the point that I stopped eating meat. In the States meat is different, I can eat it without problems because there is more control over the meat, but I really want to get used to not eating it, because most of the time I'm in Mexico. So, I completely gave up meat, " Canelo explained in an interview with ESPN Deportes.

To recap that the second duel Golovkin and Alvarez was planned for May 5, but was canceled from the incident with doping of the Mexican, and he received a six-month suspension. Now the boxers will meet on September 15.
