Rocky Fielding vs. Canelo Alvarez

12 rounds, for Fielding's WBA "regular" super middleweight title

After some grueling fights with Gennady Golovkin, Canelo Alvarez decided to go up a weight class to pursue a world title at a third weight class. He is fighting Rocky Fielding for Fieldings WBA regular super middleweight title. The size difference between the two is incredible as Fielding looks to be 2 weight classes above Canelo. He still was perceived as the weakest links amongst the 168 pound champions. The size difference between them leaves a small opening for those willing to pick Fielding for the upset but the difference in skills here is enormous and although Canelo is much smaller, he punches incredibly hard and we have seen Fielding vulnereble early vs Callum Smith. Even if this fight goes the distance it is virtually impossible to beat Canelo on points as has been proven over the years, unless your name is Floyd Mayweather. The pick here is Canelo Alvarez.

The Pick: Canelo Alvarez to win fight
