Canelo Alvarez challenged super middleweight champion, Rocky Fielding, on Saturday, December 15 at Madison Square Garden. Canelo was the victor, walking out after the third round. Alvarez dropped him with a left-hand punch midway through the opening round and rocked Fielding with a right cross. Another hook from Canelo forced Fielding to voluntarily take a knee in a fourth knockdown, making the referee wave off the fight.

According to a recent article from Forbes, Canelo Alvarez is set to be the highest paid athlete  in the world after signing a contract for $365 million.

Canelo Alvarez has completed a total of 53 fights, with 50 wins (34 by knock out), two ties and one defeat. After his victory during the rematch with Gennady Golovkin (GGG), he wanted another challenge. He was seeking to become a three-division champion.

On the contrary, Rocky Fielding has 27 wins, (15 by KO) and one defeat. In an interview given before the match he said, “Everything about it is a big challenge and I look forward to it all. I’m fighting one of the best pound-for-pound boxers here at Madison Square Garden. I’ve got to use everything I’ve got to the best I can,” Fielding said.

Several students at Lotus shared their reactions to the fight.

“I never saw Rocky Fielding fight before the fight, but I was rooting for Canelo because you can always count on him putting up a good fight,” sophomore Brian Sierra said.

“Arriba Mexico!” said sophomore Irerida Quintana, a long time Canelo fan.

“Canelo didn’t fight his best. I don’t know how he still won,” said sophomore Vivian Carbajal.

Alvarez next fight is undetermined, but with the big win against Fielding, he has set a standard and expected to win.
