Canelo Alvarez vs Rocky Fielding Fight Info | 2 Champions Collide At Madison Square Garden
Canelo Alvarez the reigning Unified middleweight world champion came to his weigh-in Friday at Madison Square Garden. He appeared to be in supreme condition the day before he will undertake a series of firsts in his already eminent career.
He will fight in New York at the spectacular Madison Square Garden for the first time, something the Mexican superstar has long hoped to do. He will have the 1st fight of the record-breaking, 5 year, 11-fight, $365 million contract with sports streaming service DAZN he signed in October. And he will do so in this bout which also happens to be the heaviest weight of his career as he moves up one division. Alvarez says this is a one-shot deal to challenge secondary super middleweight titlist Rocky Fielding.
Alvarez, whose preceding maximum weight was 164 pounds for a catchweight showdown with countryman Julio Cesar Chavez Jr. in 2017, was a mean lean 167.4 pounds. Fielding weighed in at 167.6 for the 168-pound fight, which will take place Saturday (DAZN, 8 p.m. ET main card, with undercard stream opening at 6 p.m. ET) at the Madison Square Garden in New York.
