The Canelo vs Fielding press tour kicked off today in New York and some of the early snaps have brought a large amount of comments from fans about the size difference between the two.
Fielding from Liverpool UK is the current ‘Regular’ WBA super-middleweight champion and the fight will see Canelo moving up from middleweight to challenge him.
Not long ago Canelo was moving up from junior-middleweight to 160lbs to take on Gennady Golovkin and although winning the rematch, some have suggested that another move up in weight class so soon might be a tad bit premature.
That said, he’s the heavyweight favorite with the bookies but Fielding will be confident after squaring up to him today from a size advantage standpoint:
