Canelo Alvarez's six-month doping suspension starts clock for Golovkin rematch

Golovkin aims dig at Alvarez over contaminated meat claim

This means Alvarez and Golovkin could potentially stage their highly-anticipated rematch in September assuming Golovkin wins his fight with Martirosyan.

His ban also is lighter than the NAC's minimum penalty for failing a performance-enhancing drugs test. MMAFighting.com's Marc Raimondi explains why.

Alvarez was training for his mega rematch with unified middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin when he tested positive for the banned substance clenbuterol from samples provided in February.

Neither Alvarez nor representatives from Golden Boy Promotions appeared at a disciplinary hearing in Las Vegas, but the Mexican boxer was represented by lawyer Ricardo Cestero. Golovkin will defend his WBC, WBA and IBF title against Vanes "The Nightmare" Martirosyan at the StubHub Center in Carson, California.

Economy 'starting to rock' from impact of tax cuts
The federal income tax system is created to be progressive, which means the more taxable income you make, the higher the tax rate. The legislation also proposed giving pass-through businesses a new 20 percent deduction for the first $315,000 of joint income.

Alvarez was scheduled to fight Golovkin on that date, but the bout was canceled earlier this month when it became apparent that Alvarez would not be cleared from a pair of failed drug tests in time. "The Nevada commissioners agreed to it Wednesday".

The 27-year-old had blamed the failed tests on eating contaminated meat in his native Mexico and insisted he was the victim of a mistake.

"Canelo has now failed two drugs tests and apparently passed a third, maybe because he got off it". He added that "by allowing Clenbuterol to enter his system, Alvarez engaged in conduct that reflected discredit to unarmed combat and he is guilty of foul or unsportsmanlike conduct that was detrimental to a contest".
