CANELO ALVAREZ has proclaimed that he needs to make history by being one of only a handful couple of Mexican boxers to hold titles three weight classes. Alvarez goes up against Englishman Rocky Fielding at Madison Square Garden in December for the WBA world super-middleweight customary belt.Canelo versus Fielding: Mexican contender uncovers ‘Enormous RISK’ in confronting Liverpudlian
On the off chance that he wins, Alvarez will turn into the eleventh Mexican warrior to win three world title belts in various divisions.The Mexican is surrendering a noteworthy size favorable position against Fielding, having battled the dominant part of his vocation at either welterweight or light-middleweight.The middleweight ruler crushed Golovkin in their second battle in September by consistent choice, and many felt a set of three battle would be straightaway.
Notwithstanding, it presently appears that Golovkin and Canelo’s profession directions will go separate routes, with the last proclaiming his expectations to battle in New York out of the blue.”It’s the Mecca of boxing,” Alvarez said to The News Tribune.”I have needed to battle there for a long time, and this is an incredible chance to give the fans from Latin America and Mexico an extraordinary fight.This is a battle I made in light of the fact that I need to leave a mark on the world as one of the best Mexicans to win three titles.”He is the current WBA champion. … I requested the chance to battle at 168 pounds. For me, it’s the history.”Just 10 Mexican heroes have titles in three weight classes. I am going for broke entering his usual range of familiarity.”
Handling, who won the WBA normal belt when he crushed Tyron Zeuge in Germany, demands he isn’t simply getting into the ring to be a piece of Alvarez’ legacy.He’s an overall genius,” the Liverpudlian said.”You need to battle the best to be the best, and this is an open door for me to go up against the best.”I didn’t anticipate that him will climb (in weight).”It didn’t soak in until the point that I was in the rec center the following day after his telephone call to get some information about a battle.”And after that at Madison Square Garden, would you say you are not kidding? There have been a ton of enormous battles there.”This story is a couple of days old, yet because of UFC 229 telling the majority of our consideration, this was basically a totally surprising “Friday news dump” of sorts.
Brought together WBA and WBC middleweight champion Canelo Alvarez (50-1-2, 34 KOs) will come back to the ring in the not so distant future, having fallen off an exciting dominant part choice triumph over Gennady Golovkin a month ago. The adversary anyway isn’t a middleweight, yet WBA “ordinary” super-middleweight (168 lbs) champion Rocky Fielding (27-1, 15 KOs) at Madison Square Garden in New York City.Now in light of a legitimate concern for clearing up boxing’s convoluted labyrinth of titles, the WBA is by a long shot the most exceedingly bad authorizing body with regards to proclaiming champions. They basically have three levels of belts, with “super” which means the best boss, “standard” as optional, and “interval” for uh… interval. Handling’s title, which he won by TKO against Germany’s Tyron Zeuge in adversary domain, is basically a paper belt. So, Fielding’s solitary misfortune is TKO1 to the current WBA “super” super-middleweight champion Callum Smith in 2015.
Handling is the #10 positioned contender in his division as indicated by ESPN, while Ring Magazine puts him at #9, so he’s not really a clean and he’s earned himself an unexpected shot at one of boxing’s greatest draws, which obviously implies a major payday.
This will be Canelo’s presentation at Madison Square Garden and furthermore his first battle at super-middleweight, in spite of the fact that he had a 164.5 lbs catchweight session versus Julio Cesar Chavez Jr in May 2017. Another path maybe of taking a gander at this — beside the chance to win a “world title” — is that Alvarez won’t need to cut a great deal of weight for such a brisk turnaround.
Of note here is that HBO Boxing is closing activities toward the finish of 2018, so while they could hypothetically communicate Canelo versus Handling as a last hurrah, they are not ensured the matchup.”I will meet with [HBO Sports official VP Peter Nelson] regardless I haven’t conversed with [HBO CEO] Richard Plepler, however in the following couple of weeks we will have something in composing,” Oscar De La Hoya said to ESPN. “We comprehend we have an agreement [option] with HBO however we’ve been drawn closer by numerous stages. Everybody needs to broadcast Canelo’s next battle, regardless of whether it’s on a computerized stage or straight TV. What’s more, in opposition to reports that are circling, by no means will we co-advance Canelo. Brilliant Boy is his advertiser and we will keep on attempting to get Canelo the most ideal arrangement.”So everything is still uncertain at the present time. It could be on HBO, or HBO PPV, or DAZN, ESPN/ESPN PPV, and in the long haul, with HBO out of the condition, there will be an offering war among these boxing supporters to bolt up a long haul consent to demonstrate Alvarez’s future battles.
