Eric Gomez, the president of Golden Boy Promotions, broke the news as rumors swirled about the fight’s possible cancellation over the last few weeks.

Canelo accepted the decision but fought against the accusations, stating in a conference call today I have always been a clean fighter and I always will be a clean fighter.”

Although he is still expected to fight on May 5th, GGG, his team and fans have now had to suffer through two “loses” against Alvarez, the first coming in what many thought was robbery in their first match and the second coming today. 

More to come on this developing situation.
