Rocky Fielding defends WBA super-middleweight title against Canelo

Rocky Fielding (21-1) will defend his WBA World super-middleweight title against Saul ‘Canelo’ Alvarez (50-1-2) on December 15 at Madison Square Garden.

Liverpool's Fielding, 31, faces the biggest fight of his life after agreeing to defend his WBA strap against the Mexican pound-for-pound star, who is considered one of the most feared fighters on the planet and recently emerged victorious from a rematch with Gennady Golovkin at middleweight, with their initial bout having ended in a draw.

The 28-year-old Mexican and Liverpudlian will face off in New York at Madison Square Garden on December 15, with more details to be announced shortly.
