Canelo May Consider Remaining at Super Middleweight

By Miguel Rivera

Mexican superstar Saul "Canelo" Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) made a shocking announcement earlier this month, when he revealed that a deal had been finalized for a move to super middleweight to challenge WBA "regular" champion Rocky Fielding.

The contest is scheduled for December 15th, at Madison Square Garden in New York City.

Canelo currently holds the WBC, WBA middleweight titles, which he only captured last month with a twelve round majority decision over Gennady Golovkin.

Canelo has several solid opponents to fight at middleweight, but admits he's not completely sure of going back down in victory.

"For now I want to win the title at 168 pounds, but afterwards I'll see how I feel [at the weight], I'll see if I'm going to stay there or what else we're going to do - but what I want is to be among the only 10 Mexicans who have won three different titles in different divisions and that is my goal," Canelo said.

"I've always said it, that after beating Golovkin the second stage [of my career] will come, and I hope it's as good as the first. I think I had a great first stage and the second one comes with many surprises, facing fighters with whom you can have a big event.

"There are important fighters with whom you can make good fight combinations. I just beat the one who was supposed to be the best at 160 pounds, you have to look for another challenge."

Canelo says the upcoming fight with Fielding will be a very big moment for his career.

"For me it's a pride to fight where big boxers like Muhammad Ali did, but I do not want to compare myself with anyone, I just want to make my own story. I respect each one of those boxers who fought in that place, but I want to be better than them, and for that I must make my own story. I admire each one of them and being there, where the biggest ones were, fill me with pride," Canelo said.

"It is very important for my career to present myself in one of the most important places in boxing, where there have been great champions, and I always like to have challenges."

Gets plastered by Smith or Videz. Mundo is crap, Eubank is grossly overrated.
