Canelo v Fielding: Tale of the tape
Saul 'Canelo' Alvarez takes his first step into the super middleweight division this week to challenge WBA 'regular' champion Rocky Fielding.
Canelo has proven himself at middlweight, enjoying a high-profile defeat of Gennady Golovkin, and now he is willing to take a risk and step up to face title-holder Fielding.
The bout at New York City's Madison Square Garden should bring the year to a close in style on Saturday.
