Canelo Alvarez Underwent Knee Surgery In Mexico – Former world champion Saul “Canelo” Alvarez (49-1-2, 34 KOs) underwent arthroscopic surgery on his right knee Friday in Mexico.
“I share that today I had to undergo an arthroscopic surgery to repair the internal femoral cartilage and eliminate a pathological fold of my right knee,” Alvarez wrote on social media in comments translated from Spanish. “I dismiss the erroneous information published by Golden Boy president Eric Gomez. Thanks for worrying!! And in three to four weeks I’ll be like new.”
Canelo Alvarez made this statement after Golden Boy Promotions’ president Eric Gomez said that the Mexican star had underwent cosmetic surgery. “Indeed, Alvarez underwent surgery. However, it was a cosmetic procedure. There are no further details”
Canelo will take part in a disciplinary hearing on April 18 with the Athletic Commission of Nevada, regarding his two positive tests for low levels of clenbuterol from back in February.
