Canelo Ready For Fielding: I'll Show Why I'm Pound-For-Pound #1

Canelo Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs), the universally recognized middleweight champion of the world, will make his New York City debut as he faces WBA Super Middleweight World Champion Rocky Fielding (27-1, 15 KOs) in a special 12-round super middleweight attraction on Saturday, Dec. 15 at Madison Square Garden.
 
Additional details for the event, including ticket information, will be announced shortly.
 
Canelo, the 28-year-old native of Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico, is without a doubt boxing's biggest star. After capturing two world titles and the lineal championship in the super welterweight division, Canelo moved up to middleweight to capture the WBC, Lineal titles with a unanimous decision victory against Miguel Cotto in November 2015. Canelo has maintained his status as the lineal champion ever since.

But after his historic win against Gennady "GGG" Golovkin in their highly anticipated rematch in September, Canelo captured the WBC, WBA Middleweight World Titles and established himself as the very best in the division. Canelo will look to capture a world title in a third division against Fielding. 
 
"It has always been a desire of mine to fight in New York, and where better than at the Mecca of Boxing, Madison Square Garden?" said Canelo Alvarez.

"I look forward to exploring this 168-pound division against current WBA World Champion Rocky Fielding. I will be representing the WBC as its current middleweight world champion as I continue demonstrating to the world that I am the best pound-for-pound fighter in the world."
 
Fielding is a 31-year-old native of Liverpool, England who climbed the 168-pound rankings by fighting the toughest fighters in his native country. Fielding has only suffered one loss in his career, against who would eventually be a world champion in Callum Smith. Since then, he has scored six victories in a row, including his career-best win against Tyron Zeuge to capture the WBA Super Middleweight World Title in July. Fielding will defend his title in what will be his United States debut.
 
"It was about time that the biggest star in boxing headed to Madison Square Garden," said Oscar De La Hoya, CEO and Chairman of Golden Boy Promotions. "Nearly every great fighter has fought at this historic arena. Canelo is establishing a historic legacy, and I'm excited that fans in New York will be able to see this great talent in such a famed place for boxing."

[QUOTE=Mexican_Puppet;19181156]Look the stats of those fights Both were too competitives. You are a hater of Canelo. Canelo is better in the counterpunches, head movement, creativity, and in the inside. Crawford only fought with bums or b classes. He needs to…

[QUOTE=Jab jab boom;19177606]Loma, Garcia, and Crawford are definitely above canelo in a p4p sense. They always win in convincing fashion without controversy. Canelo has an argument based on resume but with a different set of judges vs lara and ggg…
