Saul "Canelo" Alvarez has hit back against Gennady Golovkin's statements about him being a steroid user. 

Per TMZ Sports, Alvarez issued a warning to Golovkin about what to expect in their May 5 rematch. 

"I'm gonna kick your f--king ass ... little bitch," Canelo wrote in a post on social media. 

Those comments came one day after Golovkin told reporters he didn't buy Canelo's claim that his positive drug test was due to tainted beef, via USA Today's Martin Rogers:

"Canelo's team are using these drugs and everybody's trying to pretend it's not happening. This guy, he knows. This is not his first day in boxing. He proves he gets benefits from everyone and he can get away with it. The commentators, commission, doping commission—this is a very bad business, [it's] not sport. Check him on a lie detector and then we can find out everything."

Alvarez announced earlier this month he tested positive for clenbuterol. 

Daniel Eichner, director of the World Anti-Doping Agency-accredited laboratory that conducted Alvarez's test, told the Associated Press the "values are all within the range of what is expected from meat contamination."

Per ESPN's Dan Rafael, the Nevada State Athletic Commission is investigating the situation before making an official ruling on Alvarez's status for the Golovkin rematch.
