Canelo vs Fielding: Today Canelo Alvarez faces Rocky Fielding in a super-middleweight clash for the minor WBA title. Canelo Alvarez and Rocky Fielding will treat fans to an entertaining spectacle at Madison Square Gardens, New York City tonight.
Unified WBA-WBC middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) makes his way up to super-middleweight for the first time, and at the same time makes his Madison Square Garden debut.
Tonight (December 15th), the Mexican superstar takes on WBA “regular” super-middleweight champion Rocky Fielding (27-1, 15 KOs) as part of Alvarez’s first appearance on streaming service DAZN. Despite Fielding’s size and reach advantage, Alvarez is the more skilled of the two fighters, so while it should be entertaining, it’d be a shock if Fielding was able to keep it competitive.
Boxing superstar Canelo Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KO) will make his awaited debut on DAZN later tonight (Sat., Dec. 15, 2018) from inside Madison Square Garden in New York City as he moves up in weight to challenge Rocky Fielding (27-1, 15 KO) for his WBA (Regular) Super Middleweight title.
Remember, Canelo signed a massive $365 million deal with DAZN earlier this year, which keeps the Mexican boxer with the new subscription-based service for his next 11 fights.
Canelo, 28, is coming off a decision win in a rematch earlier this year with previously undefeated boxing sensation Gennady Golovkin. The two had fought to a controversial draw back in 2017.
