There have only been a few Mexican fighters to become three-division world champions, and this illustrious list includes pugilists such as Julio Cesar Chavez, Erik "El Terrible" Morales, Marco Antonio "The Baby-Faced Assassin" Barrera and Jorge "El Travieso" Arce. If Canelo defeats Fielding and joins this list, he would be the only one to become a three-division world champion in a weight class above 140 pounds.
