Paulie Malignaggi, you got to love him, his insights into boxing are just so to the point, so when he was asked about Canelo’s failed drug test, did we think we would get anything other than Paulie being Paulie!! HELL NO!
Frankly, Malignaggi can’t believe anyone would’ve been surprised. The outspoken former two-division champion and Showtime analyst thinks every boxing fan and reporter should’ve suspected the Mexican superstar was “dirty” before he twice tested positive for clenbuterol late in February.
Alvarez contends contaminated meat in Mexico is to blame for that banned substance turning up in his system and can’t see any reason why he shouldn’t be allowed to move forward with his middleweight championship rematch against Gennady Golovkin on May 5. Malignaggi isn’t buying Alvarez’s excuse.
