Fielding Plans To Impose His Size, Weight on Canelo

WBC, WBA, Lineal Middleweight World Champion Canelo Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) and WBA Super Middleweight World Champion Rocky Fielding (27-1, 15 KOs) hosted a media workout today at Chase Square at Madison Square Garden ahead of their 12-round fight.

The battle will take place Saturday, December 15 at Madison Square Garden in New York City and will be streamed live on DAZN.
 
They were joined by David Lemieux (40-4, 34 KOs), Tureano Johnson (20-2, 14 KOs), Sadam "World Kid" Ali (26-2, 14 KOs), Mauricio "El Maestro" Herrera (24-7, 7 KOs) and many other fighters from the undercard.

"I feel great, excited and soaking it all up. This is my first time doing such a big fight week and I'm really enjoying it. People are talking a lot about the size difference, and I have to make that a factor on Saturday night because I need to use every advantage that I've got. It's my weight division. I've been at Super Middleweight for a long time," Fielding said.

"I make the weight well and he's stepping up. The bookmakers are going to lose money - I was the underdog in Germany against a young and unbeaten fighter in his 4th defense and blasted him away in five rounds to take home the title. I perform better when I the underdog and everyone is against me. I thrive on that.
 
"I have prepared myself to be at my best on the night and if I need to bite down on the gumshield and fight it out. I know I can do that. When people come to KO me, that's when I catch them off-guard and get the KO myself. But Canelo is an experienced and clever fight that doesn't make many mistakes, so the things that we're working on in camp will pay off on Saturday night.

Oh yeah, another tidbit from our convo is GGG Gloveking said he later found and killed the guy who robbed him by shooting him 7 times in the chest with an AK-47 :thinking:
