With all of the media surrounding the positive drug test of Canelo Alvarez for Clenbuterol leading up to the rematch with Gennady Golovkin, I wrestled with the idea of whether or not this is something I was going to write about. Being an active participant in the sport as a manager and advisor to many fighters, in addition to having multiple media platforms, I wasn't sure if this is a road I wanted to go down.
While this is hardly breaking news anymore, it's still out there and unresolved as of today. I'm not here to offer an opinion simply because I couldn't possibly know whether or not Canelo Alvarez did or didn't take Clenbuterol or whether or not he ate tainted meat. It's simply something that neither myself nor anyone else other than Canelo Alvarez could know. I'm also surprised at the lack of coverage surrounding what this outcome will ultimately mean to the future of the sport.
If you are a boxing fan, then you know that it doesn't get much better than it did on Saturday night. If there were any questions as to whether or not boxing is thriving, all you needed to do was keep flipping back and forth between Showtime and HBO who both broadcasted exciting world title fights.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
