Midnight Mania! NSAC File Complaint Against Canelo, Make No Sense

Welcome to Midnight Mania!

The NSAC make no sense.

Canelo failed two tests for banned substance clenbuterol, which is a known problem with Mexican and Chinese beef. Remember, this is the commission that delayed Floyd Mayweather’s jail sentence for domestic violence so he could fight Miguel Cotto; they not only licensed 0-0 Conor McGregor to fight Mayweather, but even arbitrarily changed the glove size. But now Bob Bennett, the NSAC head, is filing an official complaint against Canelo and changing the hearing date. Via

“After completing my investigation, I made the determination to file a complaint against Mr. Alvarez and set the matter for a disciplinary hearing during the Commission’s regularly scheduled meeting on April 18th,” Bennett’s statement read. “Therefore, I am cancelling the hearing that was scheduled for Friday, March 30th.”

The fight is in genuine danger for being cancelled because of what should be a non-issue. Golden Boy, the promoter, has said that, consistent with WADA’s long-standing observations of meat from China and Mexico, there is evidence the sample came from contaminated meat.

Golden Boy’s claim was backed up by Daniel Eichner, the director at WADA-accredited lab SMRTL in Salt Lake City. Eichner said in the release that the levels “are all within the range of what is expected from meat contamination.”

You speak like stupid guy, NSAC.
