Fielding Ready: I Know I Can Catch Canelo - Put Him To Sleep!

WBA super middleweight world champion Rocky Fielding (27-1, 15 KOs) is confident in his ability to score a knockout victory over Canelo Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs).

Canelo will make his New York City debut when he faces Fielding on Saturday, Dec. 15 at Madison Square Garden.
 
Canelo, 28-years-old, is coming off his rematch win over Gennady "GGG" Golovkin, which took place last month at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas. Canelo captured the WBC, WBA middleweight world titles with the victory.

Fielding, 31-years-old, has scored six victories in a row since suffering a first round knockout loss at the hands of Callum Smith.

In July, he pulled off his career-best win with a knockout of Tyron Zeuge to capture the WBA "regular" title at 168-pounds.

Fielding had no idea that his most recent victory would land him a major name like Canelo.

"This is everything that I've ever dreamed of - fighting a pound-for-pound star at Madison Square Garden for my world title," said Fielding.

"I can really punch. Everyone knows that. Let's see what happens on the night when I catch him clean. He's [Canelo] stepping up in weight, and he's not going to be a big super middleweight. I know how good he is, but we will come up with a plan to beat him. I know I can catch him and put him to sleep."

Fielding's promoter, Eddie Hearn of Matchroom, expects a lot of Liverpool fans to travel over to the United States to support their man.
 
"This will be a huge night for Rocky Fielding, and one he couldn't turn down - the chance to fight one of the biggest names of the sport in an iconic and historic venue in Madison Square Garden," said Hearn.

"Although Rocky is the champion, we thank Golden Boy Promotions, Oscar De La Hoya and Eric Gomez for this wonderful opportunity. New York can expect a Liverpool invasion on December 15 and a great atmosphere in the Big Apple."

[QUOTE=Mikedadon;19179213]Canelo should easily outbox fielding. The hand speed and counter punching in the end will be too much, I only give fieding a puncher chance[/QUOTE] How could you write that on this forum? Read the other posts. Boxing scene forums…
