  1. I think this is going to be a close one as well Richard, both Alvarez and Fielding have great previous fight records, if I had to call it I see Alvarez getting a sneaky knockout.

  2. Alverez is really strong with counters. Also, he has strong accuracy. As long as he is able to dictate the pace, I think he might win but I’m reluctant to say that it will be an easy win. He’s going to have to work for it.

    • Those are good points for Canelo he is a good counter puncher, it won’t be easy being that he is the smaller fighter and he is facing a champion he will have to force the action and initiate contact. Good comment.

  3. I love boxing when I was younger it could not miss me at all on a Thursday night. But back to the article, I think any one of them can win as their stats in my opinion don’t show a great difference between the two boxers. I think on the night it is the boxer who wants it the most and the one who is most mentally prepared to win whether Canelo Alvarez or Rocky Fielder. Good luck to both boxers.

    • You are right boxing is mental. Both men are champions and are capable of winning so it can go either way, the fighter that executes their game plan the best is the one that will come out the winner.
