WBC Announces Cuadras Suspension, Golovkin Mandatory & Continued Support For Alvarez

Mauricio Sulaiman announces Cuadras suspension after refusing to test

WBC President Mauricio Sulaiman announced earlier this evening that his organization has suspended former super flyweight world champion Carlos Cuadras. Sulaiman said that the Mexican native violated the rules of the Clean Boxing Program by refusing to take an anti-doping test following his last fight against McWilliams Arroyo.

Sulaiman also said Cuadras was removed from the sanctioning body’s rankings. Sulaiman issued the following statement;

“Carlos Cuadras is suspended for faults to the banned substances protocol, he is out of the world classifications and this topic is being addressed, discipline must exist in boxing, the fighter must have the highest priority of a clean sport, it is something that we will take to the maximum with important efforts.” said Sulaiman.

Sulaiman in a separate statement continued his support for Canelo Alvarez and announced that the WBC will have representatives at tomorrow’s hearing in Nevada. A really interesting contradiction as Sulaiman opened his announcement in regards to Cuadras by stating the WBC has a zero tolerance policy.

He also reiterated that the winner of this weekend’s upcoming bout between Jermall Charlo and Hugo Centeno will face middleweight champion Gennady Golovkin next as they will be the mandatory challenger. While a Charlo vs Golovkin fight would excite fans don’t expect it anytime soon with Golovkin being a unified champion and other mandatory duties to fulfill.
