By Mike Smith: Saul Canelo Alvarez (51-1-2, 35 KOs) amazed fans by saying he’s now sure when he’ll move back down to middle weight [160 lbs] after his superb 3rd round knockout victory over WBA ‘regular’ super middle weight champion Rocky Fielding (27-2, 15 KOs) on Saturday night in Madison Square Garden in New York. Canelo felt good and looked great in destroying Fielding on DAZN at a operation that was four-knockdown. The ratings are going to be on the roof to the giant that is streaming, because Canelo’therefore fight with Fielding was complimentary.
Fielding gave it his best shot, but he couldn’t even stick to his feet against the body strike from Canelo. The fight may have turned moving down times, In case the hadn & rsquo; t even resigned to avoid the fight from the round after the fourth knock down of this contest. Canelo couldn’t even maintain Fielding down, because he hit him single shots into your body and mind. Fielding wasn’t even getting struck by hard combination pushes that will make it tricky to get up or hots he didn & rsquo; t even see.
“We have to find that. I must talk to my own team, enjoy the break . I’ll speak to my team, but today, undeniably that the most useful struggles,” Canelo said when asked that weight class he’ll fight at in his second battle May 4.
There’s no purpose in Canelo going back down to 160. He beat the fighter that was considered to be 1 at that weight category at Gennady Golovkin. It’d be a let down in confronting guys who are perceived to be fighters compared to g gg to the Mexican star by going straight back down to middle weight. Residing in super-middleweight will provide Canelo the chance to show he & rsquo; s the ideal fighter by beating the dog at that branch Callum Smith at that weight. Canelo showed tonight he prove that the weight isn’t really just a big deal because of him, also could overcome a fighter at 31-year-old Fielding. It had been difference between both weight classes, also Canelo demonstrated his boxing skill is good for guys that have more size.
What Canelo wants to do is supply a fight that interests them to the boxing fans. Canelo personally says he’s not interested in fighting with Gennady Golovkin again. It’s up to Canelo, his promoters in the buffs and Golden Boy Promotions in that branch he struggles at. The greatest fight available for Canelo rightnow may be WBA Super World super middle weight champion Callum Smith (25-0, 18 KOs). Last September, after winning the World Boxing Super series championship he & rsquo; therefore established himself as the greatest fighter in super-middleweight.
It & rsquo; ll be hard for him not to fight with Golovkin again In case Canelo does go back down to 160. Although his fight was lost by the Kazkahstan fighter he remains exceptionally popular, and now there are boxing fans that still wish to find that the two fighters face each other again to allow it to be an effective event.
“How to create superior struggles for the people, create good struggles for the general public, and also to make sure the name of ‘Canelo’ Alvarez as well as Mexico is held high,” Canelo said.
Giving the boxing fans exactly what they desire will probably soon be entail some risk on his own role, because it might mean he’ll should stay at super middleweight to manage unbeaten Callum Smith on May 4, both in the tmobile Arena in Las Vegas, Nevada or at the united kingdom in front of a packed audience in a massive stadium in Liverpool. There would be a lot of interest in a fight between Canelo and Callum Smith. First off, it’d be a revenge match for Callum, as Canelo overcome his brother Liam Smith two years ago. Liam held the World Boxing Organization junior middleweight title that was. Callum has ever been considered the top fighter of the Smith brothers. It’d be a major accomplishment for him In case Canelo can demonstrate he & rsquo; s much better than some of those other superb middleweight champions or Smith. Canelo&rsquo promoters in GoldenBoy will resist with him stay at super middleweight. They’d clearly know the kinds of issues Callum Smith would contribute to Canelo. Moving back to middle weight will mean that Canelo will face one of those winners such as Daniel Jacobs or even Demetrius Andrade.
Once you get past Callum, the superb middle weight branch is a one. Canelo stay a champion for quite a while in that weight category and can win a title. You can find talented fighters that are fewer . In 160, Canelo must worry about guys like Billy Joe Saunders, Jermall Charlo, Demetrius Andrade, Daniel Jacobs, Sergiy Derevyanchenko, Rob Brant and Gennady Golovkin. Some of the highest middleweights will soon be moving up to 160, such as Jermell Charlo Jarrett Hurd and Jaime Munguia. The middle weight division is going to be stacked to come. Canelo will be better off becoming a big fish in a small pond, and staying at 168.
