CANELO ALVAREZ seized the WBA ‘regular’ super-middleweight title and dispatched Britain’s Rocky Fielding without mercy inside three rounds, doing the damage with brutal hooks to the body.

“That’s what we planned. We knew he had that weakness to be susceptible to body shots and each one that landed I felt like that hurt him and that’s what we did,” Alvarez reflected. He hurt him.

“That was the plan we had to work the body and he committed the error by beginning to exchange with me. That’s what we worked on, to work hard to the body and thank God everything went well,” the Mexican continued.
