Drug found in boxer's system 'within range of what's expected from meat contamination'

Mexican boxer Canelo Alvarez has tested positive for a performance enhancing drug.

Clenbuterol was found in his system, but a World Anti-Doping Agency-accredited lab says it was "within the range of what is expected from meat contamination".

Alvarez's fight against multiple middleweight world champion Gennady Golovkin on May 5, will still go ahead.
