THERE is a lesson we learned. Fighting Saul “Canelo” Alvarez is a painful experience. Only the elite of the sport thrive against him. Rocky Fielding is a solid fighter, a big super-middleweight with weight in his punches. But even though Canelo was moving beyond his natural division, he was too good, too fast and without mercy.

He gave Fielding no room to move or breathe. He forced his game on Fielding and he did it all with furious speed.

Rocky began to jab, trying to push out his left lead and push Alvarez away. But very quickly Canelo was on him.
